    I have been working at LEAD Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great products (imaging SDKs), close working relationships, honest and fair management, work hard / play hard mentality, fun company getaways, your hard work gets noticed, the sky is the limit on an individual's potential here

    Cons

    There really aren't any Cons I can think of, I love working here!

    I have been working at LEAD Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    good for start up and singles, flexible working hours, expanding in technology and the work environment is friendly.

    Cons

    work balance, a lot of work and not enough employees. Salaries and compensation is not the greatest you can find. Management is by owner so you can imagine how that could be!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro micro management. Make your exceptions realistic and stop being spontaneous! Also, hire more employees to do the job and pay them well.

    I worked at LEAD Technologies

    Pros

    Easy going people. There is not a lot of stress. Management is understanding and fair. Overall the work environment is good. Benefits are also good compared to some other small private companies.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for career advancement. Most of the employees there have been there for 5+ years. The market that the company is in is a niche market so the growth rate is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No major advice to management, just that they should see how they can grow the company faster. Best of luck to them!

    I worked at LEAD Technologies full-time

    Pros

    casual , friendly working environment
    you get a chance to become a hardcore C/C++ programmer which is a really great asset for you.

    Cons

    stressful work, poor work/life balance, single-person management which tends to be chaotic and lacks planning.
    the imaging industry is a nitch market, so the experience you gain is basically useful in LEAD only.

    the bottom line, avoid the company unless you really need the job, and don't stay more than two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop micro-management, delegate more and start trusting your employees to build the company. also you need to encourage proper long-term planning instead of spontaneous, reactive decision making.
