Affable and warm co-founders. Outside work events like Beer Friday and Frisbee Matches add to the allure of the company. Genuinely good desktop products that have a loyal customer base. I worked with a number of great individual contributors and managers. This has been one of Winshuttle's appeal: bringing together good people. There are some hard working and friendly developers in the India offices.
Current and previous leadership would often exhibit very limited or narrow in scope outlook. Typically, marching to a Forrester or IDC analyst trend. I felt here, is where vision fell short. While these trends and analyses may be noteworthy, leadership did not shop these ideas around to a more discerning audience.They tend to promote to themselves and only responding to the 'yes-man' and shunning the dissenters or contrarians; when that opposing ideal may be what was needed. As for the product line, the Enterprise products are not fortified or hardened and can hurt their offerings. Additionally, Services and Support is in desperate need of visionary oversight.
Advice to Management
I feel in order for Winshuttle to truly succeed, some leadership roles need to be removed or provided with different sets of responsibilities. C-Level management should not be involved with day-to-day services and support. In addition, nor should it be short-sighted about just focusing on sales. Be more open to new ideas and be willing to discuss them. Winshuttle has great individual contributors and thought leaders, listen to them and cultivate that environment. Lastly, product management needs to slow down and dog-food its products more thoroughly. During my time there, it appeared a new product or venture was being developed at the expense of existing, successful product lines.
