    Pros

    Cons

    Tough-love management, slow-moving processes, not much change

    Advice to Management

    Wise up and understand that you're going to lose out on employees if you don't invest time in their career goals. Millenials won't work the same way as the older generations, but you'll certainly need them to keep moving forward as a profitable company.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Good salary, benefits and overall flexible working environment - Professional coworkers that are committed to what they do - Management has its head on right and is generally making the right calls - Training is second to none, the company does its best to keep everyone up to speed - Industry leader in marketing applications, and they acquired one of the better companies in town - Moving to a truly Agile model with surprising alacrity

    Cons

    - Toxic infighting. Some teams have bitter rivalries with others, and management isn't doing much to dissuade it -Silo effect. A lot of knowledge revolves around a few people that are determined to wall off their systems or knowledge - Lack of proactive, modern thinking among some engineers and a strong attitude of "we've always done it this way" - Analysis paralysis with some of the engineering leaders - Company has a (likely painful) transition period ahead in the next fiscal year, as some of the fundamental biz dynamics and technologies are changing

    Advice to Management

    Little more whip, little bit less carrot. Some of the engineering leadership needs to be kept on a tighter leash w/ more transparency

    Pros

    people and industry knowlwdge is excellent. Good networking opportunties

    Cons

    Business is based on a few legacy customers upgrading systems, management a bit of fat cats and no understanding of where the market is going.. Is going to be difficult years ahead as no new customers and big data is not taken seriously. Need to getting professional management from outside the company t make a necessary chnange. Many good people left last years for the above reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Change jobs.. you might still learn something new..
