    Pros

    Really seems like a start up with an established company. Management is willing to hear ideas to improve and I believe the current leadership is taking the company in the right direction.

    Its an exciting place to work with lots of opportunity

    Cons

    don't know where we will be in 3 years, but challenges provide opportunity!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you push for growth of employees!

    Pros

    Small size company with opportunity to learn or work across departments/roles

    Cons

    Too many changes in senior management

    Advice to Management

    Fluctuations of the economy and stock price cannot be the guiding line for running a company this size.

    Pros

    stock options, decent people to work with, great place to be a consultant if you like to travel, benefits are good, but not the greatest. Company has money in the bank

    Cons

    Senior Management has no clue on how to run a profitable organization. Past CEO thought that walking around and yelling at people was considered motivation. He was a sales guy that should have stayed with sales.

    Advice to Management

    Stop freely spending the money on items like paper flags to cover the walls. Use it for something important like good marketing efforts and consultant training.

    Pros

    Jacada has a lot of smart people, and great technology. Under the correct circumstances, Jacada could become the dominant force in automation techologies.

    Cons

    Over the past few years, a lot of the perks of working for Jacada were slowly taken away to help out the company's bottom line. This was spear-headed by Paul O'Callaghan, the company's previous CEO. He turned Jacada from a warm, inviting, fun, small company to a cold, desolate corporate wasteland.

    Advice to Management

    Jacada's management should make Jacada a fun place to work again, and focus on creating new opportunites for current employees. As it is, there's little to no room for growth within the organization,

    Pros

    Autonomy to get the job done, cool technologies, some really talented people, lack of structure, good work/life balance. Great place to build up your work skills.

    Cons

    Tendency to treat every employee like a short term resource. Frequent changes in management can alienate employees, some changes are more successful than others. Recognition is in short supply. Management not really open to hearing about issues facing employees or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep in mind that customers and employees are your greatest assets and work accordingly. Consider more promotions within versus hiring external resources.
