    I worked at Conceptwave Software Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people; good culture; stable environment. Lot's of diverse projects and responsibilities / autonomy. People worked as a team. Mature startup.

    Cons

    Some of the processes were archaic with growing pains. Some departments ruled more by authority/title than meritocracy. CEO could at times be micro-managing. Good work/life balance. Management cares about family and good-will.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, a good job. Watch the micro-managing, and give senior managers autonomy and decision-making authority; cut-back on micro-managing even though it can be hard to "let go." Curtail tribal-knowledge and improve some processes (sometimes key knowledge lied in the minds of just a few; and when they traveled or were unavailable, all things seemed to slow down, waiting on them for information or needless approvals).

    I worked at Conceptwave Software Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    company has its own software product, using its own object module, have a meta data service designer tool, quite special, can develop prototype quickly and so can be shown to client in early stage

    Cons

    skills tied to this specific product and model, when you want to pursue some other general Web Developer or J2EE developer role on the market, not possible, unless you got training or learned by yourself

    Pros

    Involved in various aspects of the Human Resources, Payroll and Group Benefit Administration areas of the Company. Able to interact with all employees and executive team.

    Cons

    Hard to balance work time and personal life. No room for growth due to the size of the HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Allow employees to freely communicate their thoughts on the Company and its management team. The executive might be surprised to hear what employees have to say.

    Pros

    Dynamic, cutting edge technology. They have good PM's and it is a friendly, multi-cultural environment. Plenty of opportunity to travel across the world.

    Cons

    You have to really drive yourself to get noticed in the competitive environment. They do not believe in work from home.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest more social events and team building activities. It can tend to get 'heads down' for long periods of time with no team or company meetings.
