    I have been working at Advanced Interactive Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People, product, vision. Sadly that was it.

    Cons

    Management, management, management. Too many personal agendas and egos. Amazed that the ride lasted this long. Zero career growth or development opportunities for staff. Executive management even worse. Never saw them as they never cared.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what the job role of "management" means, listen to the people that work under you. This is not the military!
