    - Some managers get away with abusive actions that are at lawsuit level.
    - Upper management does not solve the problem but sweep it under the rug.
    - No room to grow, your salary is set for life.
    - Base salary is not fairly distributed.

    Great place for technologists; terrible place to be in management.

    Pros

    As a technologist, you are given a lot of freedom to develop solutions with a fair amount of autonomy granted. Furthmore, the time off policy is quite liberal, and the company provides 50% matching of 401K contributions.

    Cons

    Hypermedia Systems is wholly-owned by another (Japanese-owned) company, and the company executives have little say in strategic decisions for the company. As a result, there are many organizational and cultural conflicts within scope of the larger organization. Hypermedia is forced by its parent company to follow the old Japanese hierarchal way of management which hinders its true capabilties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the actual leaders of the company lead; the owner(s) need to step back and conduct themselves as shareholders, not management.
