    Pros

    Gym on site
    Casual Dress (this could also be con if manager)

    Low Morale
    Makes changes without consulting employee feedback
    HR stuck in the middle of manager support to employee

    Focus on customer service rather than reinvent internal business IT applications. Use out of box software instead of rewriting code.

    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redmond, WA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Technology impressive.
    Stock tends to do well
    Mark Templeton the CEO has a charitable and good philosophy about life, and how to run a company.

    Cons

    Headquartered in Florida sort of podunk mentality compared to other software companies I have worked for. People don't get back to you. Sense of urgency is low.
    Working in a small remote office in Redmond was not ideal to be absorbed into the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of turnover for Product Management. Need a good leader there.
    There is a lot of though that has been done on the handling of acquisitions, but for remote offices it is still hard to feel like you are part of the company.
    Stay on track with the new focus on UI and UX. It is a good thing.
