    Pros

    Company has just realized it's potential and they are doing everything that can to be successful. Hiring good people and putting processes in place now. All good for people working and new people joining.

    Cons

    There are growing pains - they still only one person in IT here in US so that is a bottleneck. There are some old timers who still work in that reference so people coming in new face some issues but if you boss is good it all works out.

    Advice to Management

    Changing the culture overnight is not possible but slowly and steadily have the old timers get to speed on the new culture of the company.

    Pros

    This company tends to compensate new employees very well. They are willing to take on people who have potential, but don't yet have the experience or skills for the role they are hired for. This could be a good company to use as a stepping stone in your career.

    Cons

    Advancement once hired is extremely difficult in this company. Both in job title, and pay, they lack the systems to properly recognize their employees for their work. The company requires a fair amount of travel, and long unusual hours as you will be working with employees in India on off hours. Payment from bonuses, and stock options are not a guarantee, despite completing your objectives, and are rarely paid on time. The corporate atmosphere is terrible, as most employees are unhappy, and those with the means to get out leave the company, resulting in high turnover. If you are looking to be happy with your work, this is not the company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a complete overhaul of management structure. Employee compensation, and more importantly respect needs to become a priority.
