    Pros

    - Ok, work environment with some talented people there. Office was "quiet" though, lacked atmosphere - Underlying platform has a lot of potential - People good to work with - Hired some good "professional" people as I was leaving - should bring more method to their product development and implementation efforts, it was a bit "on the fly". Note:- Believe it did so but gone off the rails again(just from conversation with ex-colleague who also left but keeps in touch)

    Cons

    - Owner and senior management are told what they want to hear. Very dangerous - Need to realize that more business knowledge is required - technically-focused company, maybe should stay that way - Answer is "yes" to all customer or sales queries. Bit pathetic, we were building ad-hoc and in a manic manner. Couldn't locate correct source some of the time

    Advice to Management

    Take stock of where you really are, the demos we built are not products

    Pros

    Friendly & effective management, pleasant work environment, exposure to many web-based technologies.

    Cons

    Nothing, but make sure to be self-driven and take initiatives as work requires a bit learning and hacking problems (which in my case was a pro).

    Advice to Management

    Slight more transparency (as the company is private) may reassure the employees better of their current and future prospects.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, social yet productive atmosphere. Plenty to learn and good handle on technology.

    Cons

    External management consultants can help a great deal in refining some of the rough edges around the way business is conducted.

    Advice to Management

    Could work harder on retaining/acquiring talent.

    Pros

    Nice travel perks. Opportunity to learn Niche technology. Client access and hands on project for fairly lengthy time. Optimum pay especially when starting out. Some opportunity to shine.

    Cons

    There can be frequent employee turnover. Work can be unevenly distributed among employees. The nature of the work can be a drag sometimes. Need to put more excitement and invest in employee benefits and development.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on towards some of the projects they lead. Better process management system. More support form senior people towards junior employee development. Better process for employee evaluation and compensation.
