    Pros

    Nice people, great location, ok benefits.

    Cons

    Only one product. New management destroyed the company. Laid off half the employees to please investors. Took away all company events.Those left have been leaving. Not sure how they can keep up like this. Sad to see it go down.

    Advice to Management

    Leave while you can!

    Pros

    Salary is good. The new site is a very nice building with good working environment for the staff. The new management is trying to improve the company profitability and business acumen with appropriate investments.

    Cons

    Schizophrenic, no pipeline due to lack of previous management infighting and short sightedness. Employees with history there are viewed with suspicion, such as we're they part of the problem in the past? Current management lack of experience in the product science is causing short sightedness, and delays.

    Advice to Management

    Listen a bit more and promote from within. Reward the hard work that is constantly being done and then quickly it is on to the next thing.
