    Caters too much to Wall Street which comes across as cold

    Pros

    Great products, great reps and lower management. Upper management does a good job preparing for future products.

    Cons

    Reps are treated like commodities not people by upper management. Many talented employees have left with no apparent effort to retain them. Typically the bottom 10% of the company gets let go each year. It makes the employees feel like they are working for a company that is being groomed to be sold instead of something that has a substantial future.

    Pros

    Summer hours, 401k, great engineers

    Cons

    Management allows for questionable quality decisions. No work-life balance, preferential treatment is given by management to their pets. Management is quick to blame instead of listening to path forward.

    Growing company Individual contribution is highly valued Big enough to have good benefits, but small enough that your voice is heard Coworkers are nice Plenty of team building Opportunities for promotions and personal growth

    Toxic workplace - stay far away

    Aug 4, 2016 -  in Ewing, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits are decent and some office snacks. A lot of people do get promoted, but in general they have to be kowtowing to management.

    Cons

    Most of the employees don't contribute. There are only a handful of employees who perform and they carry the rest of the company. The company is very small (<30), therefore that placed a large amount of strain on the ones who do the work. Employees can be drunk or sleep during the workday and management turns a blind eye and never remedies the issues which have lasted for multiple years. Many bad business and product decisions and a large portion of senior management have abandoned ship. The company does not appear stable long term. Paul Wotton has been succeeded as CEO by two other CEOs since June 2014.
