    Approves of CEO

    I worked at EQECAT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -smart, committed, friendly people
    -interesting work
    -small enough for your voice to be "heard"

    Cons

    -bureaucracies related to the parent organization
    -groups are somewhat in "silos," so cooperation is less fruitful than it could be

    Advice to Management

    your core competency is in the models, not the platform! figure out how to capitalize on technical prominence even if it means abandoning other products.
