    Pros

    Veteran senior leaders, strong middle management who genuinely care about employees and customers, Great benefits, dozens of tenured employees, energetic and family like culture, large investment in recruiting and training college hires.

    Cons

    Work / life balance can be a challenge, but management is pushing for a better balance. Conflicting priorities sometimes cause confusion. Raises over the last few years have been offensively low.

    Advice to Management

    Employees at all levels are feeling undervalued. Invest more in them at all levels. Your employees are trusted and valuable. They need to feel it, not just hear it. Reward an extremely hard working group of employees yearly with raises that are higher than inflation and a traditional holiday party that’s not in the office. Have a department besides HR plan social events.

    Pros

    Flexable hours with no set time lines so projects can take as long as needed. Everyone is allocated 2 hours for lunch per day

    Cons

    Poor leadership as many of the IT leaders do not understand the industry at all. The platforms have never been updated although the executive team states it is a new platform although all it is, is a new name. The system still can not handle 15 min 1/2 hour electric contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that understand the industry and stop promoting people that do not understand the industry as it presently functions

    Pros

    Dynamic team, a lot of smart people. Great Middle management.

    Sales, services and RnD have been able to drive a great product.

    Recently a couple of middle managers seems to have been promoted to the right places (finally), lets hope this takes effect soon.

    Marketing, positioning and industry footprint has improved a lot lately

    Cons

    Top management have been chaotic and very bad for a long time, and it have not been improved with the latest round of chaos. Top management have constantly been saved by some individual great middle managers.

    For services team work life balance does not exist with the amount of travelling expected.

    Horrible communication and involvement downwards.

    Advice to Management

    Don't send emails that gives the appearance of being written by a drunk person

    Pros

    Co-workers are a really good people.

    Cons

    A small company whose growth is stunted by a continuous poor management and broken code. The company is run by a dictator and the CEO is his head puppeteer and the rest of the dysfunctional executives are his marionettes puppets! Employees are often subjected to vulgar language, sexual comments and unprofessional work environment. This company discriminates against women and minorities. No career path or growth opportunities. Raises have been cut and no bonus payouts for the general population…all investors and executives care about is their BIG payout!

    Advice to Management

    Need to replace majority of the executives including the dictator - which will happen when the investors sell.
