    I worked at Lotus Development full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Open to new ideas, quick development iterations, very cool people who were clearly geared toward moving the company forward, flexible work/life and work from home attitude meant they got the most from most of us

    Cons

    IBM had a few too many hurdles to jump for standard development decisions, the pricing committee was something I could have lived without.

    I worked at Lotus Development

    Pros

    Great team spirit, great people (the best I have ever worked with)
    People want to do a good job and it shows, they belive in theirproducts and want others to use them - many are evangelists for Lotus

    'Use what we sell, sell what we use' very prevalent

    Cons

    No chance of any acreer progression unless you're in Sales or Management
    Techies are woefully undervalued
    IBM has strangled Lotus - they still don't understand what they bought

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Techies make the product that you want to sell and support the customers who buy it. VALUE THEM!
    Get IBM out of Lotis' hair
    Understand just what great products you've got and sell them
