    Pros

    Not too many except that the CTO and CEO are fabulous human beings.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Product is ridiculously expensive and difficult to sell. CEO and entire company being ran by the CEO's horrible assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Poorly managed place. Human resource management is a dump. Associate in IT department is absolutely futile.

    Pros

    Great positive work environment. Everyone is serious about the work but it is often in a very positive, open and fun environment. Good laughs in meetings really loosens people up. Even the CEO & CTO can be funny. Some super smart and likable people. CEO is a natural entrepreneur and challenges his people with the right questions. An amazing technology. Strong potential product.

    Cons

    Its a complicated product and bugs to work out. A technical challenge with a handful of people that really understand how it works. A couple of people that don't fall in line with the program and don't work well with others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing in the funding. Keep doing what you are doing. Document the brain trust.

    Positive Environment. Great people. Spectacular product. Dynamic, growth oriented. Makes smart decisions about how to best use limited resources. Open, good communication with all employees. Strong work ethic but not insane.

    Like many small companies, working to deploy scalable processes. Location a difficult commute for many.
