    IBM Tealeaf is a great company to work for, compensation is above average, I have the freedom any entrepreneur enjoys and a great support team that always does their best.

    Cons

    You have to be patient at IBM.

    Pros

    The software is useful and has lots of potential for growth. There are also some really talented people that work here who I truly respect. Workers are given a great deal of responsibility and flexibility.

    Cons

    For every productive person that works here, there's 5 people that are an absolute drain on the company. There are no controls on code quality, no peer-reviews, and no cross-team communication. Teams are heavily siloed. Adding or modifying simple features tend to drag out to multiple month long ordeals. The pacing of this company is sluggish in general (for a technology company). I'm guessing bonuses are distributed by seniority. There's no other way to explain the fact that my peer got a huge bonus, after I spent nearly a year fixing their bugs, while I got nothing. That's when I knew I was wasting my time here.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight and reward people who make positive contributions, instead of people who have been taking up space the longest.


  3. Great company and even greater product, dedicated people with energy and great commitment to its customers.

    Pros

    The product line is obviously best-of-breed and obviously needed by any Web app/site worth significant money. As a consequence, customers love it.

    Cons

    The management was loath to spend money and sanguine about trying to do too much work with too few workers. No employee-training programs. Though it has definitely always been best-of-breed, the product's development needs to get ahead of today's technology curve by hiring experts in the kinds of data processing it performs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire to get ahead of the customer-demand curve instead of perpetually trying to squeeze more out of the people who are already there.

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Passionate people. Amazing clients. Totally differentiated selling proposition. Very fun to be smack in the middle of the ecommerce space.

    Cons

    Ambiguous future vision. The company is butting up against some other, bigger companies and spaces, and they need to figure out how to compete, differentiate, partner, etc. A bit arrogant at times, but that's not always a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in people. Appreciate their hard work. Better articulate the long-term play in the marketplace. Invest in the company culture.

    Pros

    Has attracted a lot of great talent and retained most of them for a long time. The product is loved by most of it's users, it's unique with little real competition. Acquisition by IBM means it will benefit from larger sales force and product complexity fits well with IBMs consulting focus.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by IBM, don't know what that will do to the culture yet. Primarily Microsoft-based platform, so requires that background for developers.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and reward the people.


  8. Good company and product reputation; cult-like "inner circle"

    Pros

    Great Product with great value easily communicated means good customers. Good overall earning potential for sales people. Very strong industry reputation and value as a resume strength and eye-opener.

    Cons

    Cult like inner circle. Management paranoia is rampant. Complete and utter lack of open communication with employees-refuse to admit/reveal any information. Changes in employee roles, product changes, corporate strategies, etc are revealed and communicated on a "need to know" basis as though military secrets are at stake.

    Advice to Management

    Even a shred of honesty and respect for your employees would count for a lot. When a key employee leaves the company and 6 months later, it hasn't been "revealed" there is too much hyper sensitivity among management. Two Senior managers run the company and ultimately make all decisions. Need to spread the decision making and open up the discourse.

    Pros

    3 weeks paid vacation. Intelligent and capable emplyees and staff. You can get a nice title at Tealeaf, just done expect to move up.

    Cons

    Expect nothing and expect nothing to change....except your compensation. Which could change several times a year. Poor managment and vision. Glass ceilings galore...

    Advice to Management

    Make something happen..beit a merger or sale. Link up with partners. Consider a SaaS solution like the rest of the marketplace.
