    I have been working at SilkRoad Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    New strategy has resonance in the marketplace. New leadership is from Silicon Valley and "gets" modern tech, modern design, modern go to market strategies. Alliance with Microsoft will become even more important. Poised to change the industry if this strategy plays out. Change brings more opportunities for those who want to step up. Advice is embrace the change and step up.

    Cons

    Change, change and transitions. Long time set in stone processes are being uprooted as not agile enough for today's marketplace. That means people don't like it and will leave. In many ways it's streamlining - becoming leaner to do things faster. Some people don't look on change as good.

    Advice to Management

    Double down. Make it happen. Be transparent. Don't compromise with old ways of thinking and doing.

    Interview

    Typical interview with some scenarios presented (how do you handle a difficult client, what type of animal you would be if you were an animal and why etc. Don't pick a bat - there is a story there, but, if I tell it I will no longer be anonymous. Owl is a good answer (wise).
