    Pros

    Amazing co-workers that are passionate about their job and the organization. Management encourages growth and development.

    Cons

    In an effort to prevent extra costs being passed onto the consumer,company hangs onto old technology that is slow and wastes countless hours of time trying to deal with it.

    Pros

    Free fruit (bananas, orange, and apples) and bagels,

    Cons

    Spends money frivolously then wonders why there is no money, management micro manages money for even for a $5 expense, management doesn't have trust or believes in their employees

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, show up more often for work instead of showing up only when there is a board meeting once a month

    Pros

    Colleagues are seasoned professionals and dedicated to the company
    Product is creative and relevant to their market position

    Cons

    Make sure to negotiate the very best starting salary possible because performance reviews absolutely do not exist
    All teams are understaffed and expected to work evenings and weekends to compensate - Not unusual for a startup, but this company is 8+ years old. "Startup" actually translates into "dysfunctional" after about 6 years
    Chaotic, fear based work environment
    Cronyism is rampant
    C level contact and communication is non-existent

    Advice to Management

    C Level Execs: Show up once in a while and talk to the "little people" who work for you.
    The layer of management between you and your employees is not always a reliable filter of information. These are loyal, hard working employees who really do care about the company - It's not too late to regain their confidence and trust.

  6. Hopeless management, without a vision for where the company was to be positioned int he market.

    Pros

    Qualified people, good knowledge of the technology, strong products with the ability to become best in class for the industry.

    Cons

    Micromanaging to a fault. An arrogant attitude by the senior management who created a toxic work environment for everyone involved. Management spent money hand over fist, but only on themselves.

    Advice to Management

    They need to resign. Only solution, as they have not managed the changed from start-up to professional business. At fault for not listening to the competent people they have in the different regions.
