    Consona has a great company culture, and tries really hard to make working for the company a rewarding experience.

    Because Consona was a smaller company, Sales and Marketing could have used more resources.

    Great job

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Consona full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some great people from various acquisitions remain in the company and they make the difficult positions management put you in more bearable. Due to decentralized (M&A culture) many can work-from-home.

    Cons

    Company values only apply to the workers, not to the executive team (CEO is not Tom Millay as listed in this profile, but Jeff Tognoni). Lip service is provided about being Customer Service focused and "Customer Intimate" but really its about making the most money for share-holders regardless of impact on customer retention or satisfaction. Work-life balance is impossible when newly acquired product-lines are expected to continue revenues despite deep cuts at acquisition-time and regularly thereafter.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forthcoming with employees, especially those who have to message your product plans to customers, as your lies become the employees lies and no one wants to be dishonest to customers repeatedly and then try to earn their trust and respect.

    Pros

    Great client base but slowly losing them
    Great Services team

    Dishonest with employees and customers
    Do not invest in product - CEO and mgmt just make money from maintenance renewals

    Be honest to your employees
    Stop doing a CYA for all business decsions
    Dont think they will get a job anywhere else so do goo for your paymasters
