  1. Flexible work environment and culture; lacks a little spunk

    I have been working at Qumu full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    In general, management is flexible in terms of working hours and very willing to adjust hours if you need to avoid a long commute, etc. The solutions are fun to talk about since video communication is something just about everyone can personally relate to nowadays.

    Cons

    Office culture lacks some spunk, but people are all very nice and welcoming. Teams are very split in terms of location so often meetings are over the phone and can be difficult to juggle everyone's timezones when scheduling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in employees.

    I have been working at Qumu

    Pros

    Work when you feel like
    No pressure, so you can build quality code.
    Great time to learn new technologies

    Cons

    No growth or recognition
    Even if technologies are not required, it is just introduced. This increases complexity and learning curve.
    No matter how much good you do, you are still not good enough.
    Telecommuting is no more an option
    Manager does not take responsibility for the mishaps they do and passes it down to developers. So managers always get good bonus. Also for manager to get bonus, need to be pal with CEO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs more training on how to manage.
    Hire the right middle managers who do the work

    I have been working at Qumu full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The technology is good but limited and not fully regionalised

    Cons

    No process for training or ramp up. You left with self teaching and management expect you to do everything when you implement the solution. You do not get a proper aid from management or support. They expect you to know everything especially areas you have not been given training on. The management only after volume of deployments and not quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people well and know what it is missing and do not assume that they know everything especially when you send them for client engagements.
