    Pros

    You get paid on time.
    Most of the people are nice and work very hard

    Cons

    Management has some how deceived the board of directors and investors that they have a clue. They don't. They make things up on the fly, and when it doesn't work they change direction, again, and again, and again. The brunt of these changes is felt by the worker bees.
    The sales team is a revolving door. Can't say I blame them since I've been told that their compensation plans get changed mid year. Quotas are un-achievable which is why they keep quitting.
    We were a WAN Optimization company but then management decided to jump on the SD-WAN bandwagon, so the company was rebranded.
    Don't come to work here unless you are desperate and have zero options. If you do have options, run away from this place as fast as you can.

    Advice to Management

    Advice? Management never takes any feedback or input from the worker bees because they seem to think they have ALL of the answers.
    Advice to the board of directors and investors is to come into the office, and talk to the worker bees to find out what is REALLY going on.
