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

    Pros

    Boris is THE guy in the FX area. He manages everything and has been around over 20 years. He has many loyal employees that have been around just as long. The environment is relaxed and his customers love him.

    Cons

    Boris is THE guy. The buck stops there. There is no room for ideas he is not familiar with, and there is very little risk taken as a business. Despite that, the company will survive regardless of the market. He is a survivor

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people a bit more, look to where other companies already are. Don't be as much a follower.
