    I have been working at QAD full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Growing company
    - Good teamwork
    - Access to Management
    - Continuous improvement to product line

    Cons

    - Lack of continuous communication
    - Organizations are a bit disjointed and working in silos at times
    - Reluctance to spend money and increase technical resources
    - Some reluctance to take responsibility in some departments
    - Growing pains in some areas

    Advice to Management

    More communication downward on high level initiatives and ideas. Although there are all hands calls, sometimes there are projects being worked on that other areas within QAD aren't aware of and it can cause confusion and duplicate work..
