I have been working at AccessData full-time (Less than a year)
The people are great! The new leadership is empowering management to make much needed changes and its being very well received. There is a long term plan in place with short term checks and balances. The products are being developed by an expert team and meeting aggressive deadlines. The technical support and client relations group are keeping customers happy. The sales team is hitting their targets and getting the support they request. The company is evolving from a "small business" mindset into the larger company it has grown into. There were some growing pains, but things are on track for a very bright future.
Despite reality, market perception for some solutions is negative based on very old information and baseless competitor rhetoric. Headcount is being closely monitored to ensure the right growth is justified by adequate business need (as it should be).
Advice to Management
Stick with the plan... its working well! Continue to keep the employees well informed of the plans (as you have been). Keep listening to the employees AND customers. Add some incentives for employees to share in the company's success.
