    Pros

    Used to good, friendly working culture before 2013.

    Cons

    New Management has imposed new strict timing / school like work culture which is not appreciated. Most of the employees who used work more other than office hours are not happy. Also they are now more focused on acquiring smaller companies and expansion but laid off their old faithful empolyees big time.

    Advice to Management

    Please value the hard working people and their work.

    Pros

    HDS offers excellent benefits and a pleasant work environment. The coworkers are friendly and do a good job of supporting one another.

    Cons

    Even with successive record quarters and years, raises are few, small and very far between. At times product direction seems confused and communications are mostly lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communications both up and down the chain. Surprises about new products or features shouldn't happen to employees.

    Pros

    There are pockets of very nice people who are passionate about their jobs and great to have on your team. Customers like the company and its technology. First time I ever really heard customers say it's great technology and at the right price.

    Cons

    Super political. People vying for attention, and always managing up. Lagging in terms of using the most progressive techniques in the market. If you want a job where people only use the tried and true measures, this is ideal. If you want to be able to have new ideas and see them implemented, it's probably not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the right behavior. Tone down the politics.
