    I worked at LANDESK full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    MS Windows technology stack fluency goes back decades

    Cons

    Forays into newer technology stacks offer great opportunity but associated risk as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go 'evergreen' with all software products/services (e.g. management agents). Evergreen in the sense of a self-updating web browser.

    Keep diversifying across device/end-point types (from laptops to tablets and phones and on to automobiles, home security, television, smart ovens, etc.)

    Was not a good place to work for me

    I worked at LANDESK full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good programs for employees, good work-life balance (most times), interesting projects

    Cons

    Not competitive on salary. Prefer to hire off-shore when possible. Some of upper management has poor leadership skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on building teams on-site instead of in China. Directing management over engineers need to learn to work with employees so that they will improve instead of letting them go and hiring in China. Value your employees. The market is competitive for software developers. If you don't treat them well they will go elsewhere and you'll get a bad rep.

    Pros

    Everyone here is friendly and hardworking. Honestly, it feels like a big family here. They frequently bring in food and have snacks on hand for employees. They are very flexible with schedules, as long as work is being completed. Management is hard working and truly has a vision for the company.

    Cons

    Not many. Maybe more goal focused.

    Great work environment, coworkers were friendly and my supervisor was pretty lenient on when our work got done as long as we were working.
