    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Highlands Ranch, CO

    I worked at Packetfront

    Pros

    Above average benefits
    Start-up, new venture (in North America) mentality, very motivated & energetic people
    Great product (network gear), robust features
    Building a strong presence in Scandinavia, Middle East, some Asia

    Cons

    Lack of realistic, disciplined senior management
    "All eggs in one basket" approach assumed fiscal, capital, cash flow problems would be solved once an IPO was done - no "plan B" was ready
    Product line that was best in industry was not updated regularly or quickly enough for company to maintain technological leadership position
    Cash, capital shortfall, recession, and loss of sales led to severe cutbacks, closure of North American division

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in experienced and motivated senior management
    Be realistic in planning, strategy, and forecasts - but set high standards for product r&d, technology development and upgrades, customer support, and marketing

    Realize that it is an international company and communicate accordingly to all branches of the company. Don't forget outlying offices/personnel.
