    I worked at Axeda full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Super group of smart people. Good direction from management, great product.

    Cons

    Grew the company to sell it. Not enough equity for regular employees to make them excited about the sell off.

    Advice to Management

    I understand why you had to sell, but you took the wrong offer. The new owners ran it into the ground.

    Pros

    Product is interesting and has good potential. Very good techies who you can learn from.

    Cons

    Going through a transition period right now, maybe better times ahead. Kind of stuck on older technology.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees more and keep them informed of what is happening...too much room for rumors and gossip when information if not available officially.

    Pros

    Pros - opportunity to work with some of the smartest people in IoT and M2M. Great working environment and endless opportunities to get involved in leading edge development with latest tools. HR really attempts to make the every day workplace interesting and collaborative.

    Cons

    Cons - Acquisition changed the course of the company, but the people are still smart and energetic and some of the brightest minds in IoT

    Advice to Management

    Advise would be to keep the folks you have and continue to build the team collaboratively. Work on integrating IoT resources to produce the best products with the best folks.

    Pros

    Good product; decent pay; flexible schedule; smart people working there (mostly)

    Cons

    tenured staff has tendency to talk down to newer staff; new management came in earlier this year and laid off a bunch of good people for false reasons; overall morale is low and people are scared for their jobs (not a good thing!!). New managements goal is to make the company attractive so it can be bought - which also leads to people wondering about their jobs for the future. If bought, new management team will leave (that's what they do) and a newer mgmt team will come in. very unstable.

    Advice to Management

    get some clue on how to treat your employees. be more open w/ communication on what you plan to do with the company
