    Pros

    Telecommute 3-4 days a week.

    Unhappy client base. Seems the development staff is always trying to put out fires instead of creating a stable product base.

    Pros

    product is intended to help special needs population which is good

    Cons

    inexperienced mid level management. They are trying to fix processes randomly but struggling as most of them doesn't prior management experience. Product is having lot of issues, need to be fixed a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some talent with experience in the management and professional services. It would help changing the company direction. Product development software engineers can't be people managers.

    Pros

    Great concept to help the special ed population. Good benifits compared to other companies in the market. Can save on gas or metro.

    Cons

    All of the low level management and some of the so called executive management from tech side doesn't have any experience in the enterprise software development. Very poor decisions due to lack of experience in the enterprise software industry. Need more management changes required to take the company forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company will reach heights if the executives really think of getting experienced managers. Also get some good management training for self. Be client focused.
