    Pros

    Incredible group of people to work with, very open in terms of innovation/collaboration, telecommute, relatively flexible hours, bonus system and professional development plans, great company to learn about global impact of software within industry and promote the idea of working as a family

    Cons

    Innovation/collaboration only goes so far, Professional development hits a ceiling in under 5 years so succession planning is limited, executive management seem to be holding on for retirement, Quarterlry town halls are long winded exercises that even the executives seem bored of.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside and let some new ideas breathe innovation in to this flagging software company or look for investors to build the company further


  2. This company is OK if you are not very ambitious.

    Pros

    Beautiful location, great big well-equipped office, very competitive salary, annual professional development opportunities, ability to telecommute, flexible hours, modern technologies. Great opportunities for professionals in mineral exploration or energy business (geology, geophysics, GIS, etc.)

    Cons

    Innovations are rarely welcome, senior leadership is practically non-existent, promotions are often based on seniority hence competence of the management is debatable. Software and business people can easily do better elsewhere if they are smart.

    Advice to Management

    The times are changing fast, so should you.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, work from home, excellent benefits, and fantastic co-workers.

    Cons

    The company pays the median, silo-ed work environment, communication challenges. Little innovation, competitors are gaining ground.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on one to two things and do them really, really well. Take some chances outside the core user group and build a real long term growth strategy.

    Pros

    Very professional welcoming and onboarding, great people, state of the art location, care for employees, good benefits, very sounded HR, plenty of training opportunities, professional development.

    Cons

    Not really big ones. Openness for dialog and enhanced communication might help to move the agenda faster and more efficient

    Advice to Management

    Go and explore beyond the executive and mid management level
