    some employees are 11 time zones away, contact is sometimes problematic

    Get to know your people a little better


  2. It's been a blast, but cut short due to ever-changing strategies outside this office's control.

    Pros

    Great product, great people to work with, so much potential!

    Cons

    Owned and controlled by a non-U.S. company, and priorities have never been adequately focused here, plus there was a level of indifference from the parent that made progress a challenge. We learned to decrease dependencies outside of our office, but that had the ironic effect of increasing the perception that U.S. office wasn't being effective. Communication suffered. It might be best for the office to be filled with more bi-lingual personnel.
