    I have been working at PerTrac full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very easy to make a difference. I was able to take on a lot of responsibility once I showed aptitude for development and the domain. Very easy to talk to most of the executive management team.

    Cons

    Often times the board of directors was inflexible to ideas to increase quality of code or process at the cost of new features. Not all executive management were software experts and that caused some strategic problems.

    I have been working at PerTrac

    Pros

    Pertrac tries hard to provide a work environment that allows employees to excel. It is certainly not perfect, but most gripes would be superficial.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company, promotions are scarce. If an opportunity does open they try to fill it internnally (which is good). There just are not that many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    I have been working at PerTrac

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with a lot of passionate employees.

    Cons

    Management refused to put in place quarterly and annual performance metrics. As a consequence there was a lot individuals chasing ideas about how to grow revenue. It seemed that management did not want to state goals so they wouldn't be held accountable for missing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't manage a revenue number, you can only manage how you want to achieve a revenue number.
