    Pros

    small company, entrepreneurial spirit, company bought Friday pizzas, good pay and benefits, some very talented, bright and forward thinking engineers, friendly holiday schedule

    Cons

    lots of turnover, changing customer and product pursuits to frequently, lack of focus, very long sales cycle, lack or growth in the near term, with limited company size and near term growth the possibility for advancement was limited

    I worked at Metatomix

    Pros

    - Learned some cool stuff
    - Some were nice to work with

    Cons

    Simply horrible top management with a few exceptions. They didn't know what they were doing and in the end most people were let go and the worst CEO. Just a big talker. Most co-workers were pretty detached and didn't seem cohesive in any way at least in the group that I was in. It was just a pretty snobby and uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too late for that, the company sank like the Titanic.

    I worked at Metatomix

    Pros

    Solutions focused on better communication between courts and law agencies. It's good to know that your work is helping to catch criminals. We did some interesting work with RDF and Semantic Web technologies.

    Cons

    Metatomix would have benefited from stronger product marketing and project management. As an engineer, I rarely had a good feel for what the customer wanted or needed. It's pretty difficult to make design decisions without understanding customer requirements. Project time lines and milestones were rarely clearly communicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be honest with itself about whether the company is a product or services company. I believe this identity crisis has made it difficult for management to set a proper course.

    Pros

    Integrated Justice is a worthwhile problem domain.

    Co-workers are very talented.

    Management works hard to preserve benefits and inoculates workforce against seasonal flue.

    Cons

    Management is struggling to define goals.

    RIFs have culled the workforce of some of the most talented individuals.

    There is a lack of follow-through on stated intentions to excel in semantic technologies.

    The company has fielded a lot of applications but has not perfected them to the point where they can be easily maintained, extended, or upgraded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where to begin? Technical services needs both technical and business management. This is something I would address quickly.
