    Pros

    Very nice people, good atmosphere. CEO (and owner) values his people, and makes every effort to avoid layoffs when business is bad. Innovative and flexible. Has been smart about growth. Seems to be on target for market salaries.

    Cons

    Small company (around 50 people) so opportunities for career growth are limited mid-career. Flat management structure means technical people are thrown into business responsibilities and vice versa.


  2. typical small company with high turn-over rate

    Pros

    Talisen Technologies is a very flat organization. It is not out of the ordinary to see and speak with every CxO in one day. It is also a very good-natured organization. What I mean by that is that there are few battles between employees/managers/departments. This is because the work-style is very laid back (see downsides). Talisen is an incredibly flexible place to work. Although the vacation-time is quite stingy (starting out, at least) it is not a problem to work late one day in order to leave early the next. Management is pretty hands-off in this regard.

    Cons

    There is little process at Talisen Technologies. Despite being an IT firm and doing process analysis for clients (we actually do a very good job of it) there is little internal pressure to improve our shortcomings and we spend a lot of time putting out fires due to poor communication and misunderstood requirements. These problems occur at other companies, but what is strange with Talisen is that people recognize the issues but do nothing about them. Also, while being laid-back is good, sometimes it goes too far. For example, there is a dress code. Some people choose to follow it, some do not. There is no feedback for either group.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet, and spend the time/money on internal processes. You have enough fires and you will eventually get burned. The solutions to these issues are in everyone's heads... it is important to not only ask employees how things can be improved but to also act on these suggestions.
