    Great company to work with and a really enthusiastic team. Everyone have a common goal - make Attensity successful.

    Its hard to sell software when you're a start-up, since they don't have a lot of use cases.

    I have been working at Attensity full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Attensity has amazing products and services
    The people are great
    The benefits are above industry standards
    I have been very happy working here

    Cons

    The company took a long time to arrive at their current product strategy and that has hurt sales efforts. Previous management incarnations have not been as solid as the current team.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. The current products are the best on the market and will continue to get stronger, and will stay leading edge. It is an exciting time for Attensity.

    I worked at Attensity full-time

    Pros

    Great people, cool technology, interesting problems being worked on here

    Cons

    The execs seem to be picked out of a hat at random. They have no relevant background to the industry. It took literally 1 year before the new CEO started understanding what the technology does. They chase mismatched opportunities because they do not understand what we do. What a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to learn about your industry and your technology. Show up.

    Don't treat your job as a side project. Your employees were good. Invest in their knowledge.
