    Pros

    Ability to work on a great product, make independent design decisions. It was very stimulating and challenging. Working in a small team of highly qualified tech people.

    Cons

    Typical challenges of a very small tech company that struggles to be profitable. But still it was great to work there.


  2. Company has been dying for years. Makes it painful for everyone

    Pros

    -- Once a great company with smart people, good technology and fun
    -- Opportunities to learn about supply chain and play with Java and J2EE
    -- Relaxed working hours - I almost never had to work over 30 hours; sometimes this is a pro and a con as I didn't have much to do somedays and had to browse the internet for hours

    Cons

    -- leadership, leadership, leadership...There is none. No vision at all. Once the company had smart managers with dynamic personalitiies, but that was years ago.
    -- transparency: almost nothing is transparent; everything is hidden making it difficult to trust what you are being told.
    -- poor morale: layoffs have occurred almost every 6 months and threats of bankruptcy make motivation low
    -- older technology - never upgraded to the new standards; no one clearly driving to leadership in the tech arena makes it hard to grow your career
    -- bordem: not enough for anyone to do. Significant layoffs with outsourcing to asia will make you into a tester and bug fixer.

    Advice to Management

    -- Focus on morale quickly: you need to make sure that the culture is one for growth
    -- Hire more competent office management: If the leadership of the office or department is poor then the engineers can't really improve anything
    -- Stop the cheerleading: management seems to want to be cheerleaders and say naive things like "we are building a great company" but without any facts or track record...just stop the nonsence and be honest with people
