    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Culture is amazing. people are great. cool concept.

    Cons

    no direction. poorly managed. sales pay is low compared to other SAAS models.

    Advice to Management

    you aren't going to attract good sales people or keep them for that matter if the pay is low. make good decisions and stick with them. stop changing the direction of the ship every few months.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    My management was the best in the world. Energy was always high, and the goal was always clearly defined. The workspace was very agile in nature, and communication was always encouraged in the IT department. We were teamed directly with Sales and that created a level of cooperation within the company that I have not seen since.

    Cons

    That management is no longer there. Efforts that IT was moving towards seemed to be continually blocked by other parts of the business. Other areas of senior management would reward various departments even when they were missing their goals. IT was looked at as a means to an end, rather than a strategic partner within the overall organization.

    Pros

    Management at this company is top notch. My experience working there was outstanding.

    Cons

    The pay seemed to be on the low side. Perhaps the flip side of a company keeping its costs down to stay competitive is..

    Advice to Management

    Senior management consistently leaves you feeling like they're large and in charge. I don't have any advice. Only praise. This company left a very good taste in my mouth after about two years!

    Pros

    MFG.com is a place for the top percentile in terms of intelligence, work ethic and energy. There are lot's of moving parts, it is a global business, very innovative and changing a stale industry. Fun work environment with little politics. Lot's of interaction with the visionary Founder / CEO who is a talented motivator that holds people accountable and isn't afraid to make the tough decisions when need be.

    Cons

    As long as you are working hard and "thinking" the downsides are few. Probably the greatest challenge is that MFG.com is forging a new path and bringing major efficiency to the manufacturing industry and not all people running small manufacturing companies are savvy enough to embrace change and try to fight it. Dealing with those people can be trying. But when I speak to those customers that "get it" it cancels out the frustrating conversations with those that don't .

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the culture. MFG.com is an amazing place to work. Don't hire any more "professional managers" that don't understand how to operate in an entrepreneurial, global, fast paced company. Publish more case studies talking about all the success I hear about on the phone every day when speaking with customers.

    Pros

    Great vibe, Great Team, Very flexible, and very causal. All things considered this is a very good company to work for.

    Cons

    Performance is king and people work hard to hit their numbers. You must be prepared to do the same. There is very little tolerance for slackers.

    Advice to Management

    More focus always helps, but generally they are on the right track. I liked the way the company was managed.

    Pros

    As stated in other reviews, MFG.com has a very relaxed and fun work environment. The benefits package is quite good, but that is where the pros stop. In it's heyday of "free spending" ways there were some international travel opportunities available to select people, but with revenues plummeting this is no longer an option.

    Cons

    MFG.com has an unsustainable business model. They have been hemorrhaging money since the day they were founded and have never managed to be profitable. The opportunities for growth are non-existent and career planning is never considered. The compensation is sub-par because MFG.com tries to milk every worker for 150% while paying next to nothing. There are no raises to speak of, and no programs to reward above and beyond achievement. "Communication" hardly describes the interaction between management and the employees. "Deception" or "Deflection" are more appropriate words for how the management deals with information about the company. The management just does not have the right skill set to support that organization, and employees often wonder whether the board of directors is too distracted to see this or if they just don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the business model. Care about your employees. Those two simple tenants could turn your business around. By providing actual value to your customers rather than having your sales team bully people into contracts you will build a strong customer base that will continue to pay you for the value they receive. No value = no revenue, plain and simple. By showing no respect for the workers who make up the backbone of your organization you discourage them from going above and beyond and turn them into 9-to-5 clock punchers. You have proven in the past that you will stab anyone in the back for a dollar and you have a lot of work to do in order to turn that image around.
