    Pros

    Nice office with free parking; interesting market (media); on Northside of Pittsburgh which is starting to flip to a better neighborhood. Good life/work balance.

    Cons

    CEO has been at the company for many years but still struggles to understand a technology market. . Several years ago someone came in revise the software and that had a big impact but that person is no longer there.

    Advice to Management

    CEO ego gets in the way of good management so there is high turnover. Keep your ego in check.

    Pros

    Nice people, interesting product, they try to make a nice work environment but they are located in a horrible part of town.

    Cons

    Limited growth, senior management doesn't believe they are ever wrong, good people were laid off and bad people kept, some vision but completely unable to execute on it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people you hired. You hired them for a reason -- they are experts in their domain, you aren't. Get out of the way and let people do their jobs.

    Not a bad place to be, if you're satisfied with what you have.

    Pros

    Small company environment, relaxed atmosphere, occasional "fun". Employees are free to plan their workday, and occasionally work remotely. Some travel is available. Interesting workplace, minimum of politics, and "open door" policies with upper management. Free parking, and decent access to nearby amenities.

    Cons

    Small company anxiety, limited revenue, terrible location. Moved from, and to, a dangerous part of town. Minimal security, particularly after hours. Although management doors are "open", that doesn't mean an employee will be heard. Due to small company atmosphere, some encounters are ...unprofessional. Compensation is not commensurate with performance, and despite a years-old promise, profit-sharing is still yet to materialize.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Ask first, not last. Reward productivity and ingenuity. Communicate.
