Pros – Location is accessible by car and public transport, co-workers have a strong team spirit and good for independent thinkers who don't need a lot of direction or technical help.
Cons – For a software company, there is an amazing lack of technical leadership and understanding. Company values are more suited to a corporate environment instead of a young, creative atmosphere that welcomes innovative thinking. It's a more robotic assembly line than an open, engaging workplace. We need more people who know to manage and understand technology instead of people who don't know the impact of the promises they make.
Advice to Senior Management – The disconnect between leadership and workers is the biggest problem. Unfortunately, senior leadership is locked away in their offices and don't talk to the people creating the actual products. They have a lot of benefits and freedoms and the actual workers are treated as an unimportant part of the company that is easily replaceable. There is a lot of turnover in less skilled positions and compensation across the board is well below average. Lately a lot of longterm people have left while there are plenty of new senior managers. Less than 10% of promotions are internal and there is not a lot of room for upward mobility. The new senior managers brought in from other companies don't understand the challenges before being given the reins to run the place and make changes for the sake of change. Not sure anyone in charge knows what's going on below them, but employees are not given any sense of stability and no one up above bothers to find out about problems.

Pros – Thriving company, stable business model
Cons – Very Corporate, not a very technical work force. Management can be a bit obtuse
Advice to Senior Management – The culture and environment is not one that will likely to excite young and active web developers. The software developed here is the future of the company and that means you need to take better care of your software teams.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
