    Pros

    small enough company that most every person matters; good work-life balance; recognize and reward industrious employees; if you are looking for stability, stick with the technical support group; if you are looking for project-based work, join the presales/professional services group; very good internal processes for administrative concerns (like time scheduling, time sheets, etc)

    Cons

    make sure you sure have the skill set that is valuable regardless of which software/hardware product/service they are selling; chances are, if product sales are down, so do the service contracts...and if you are a service provider, then start looking for a new job! poor interdepartmental cooperation (the wheel gets re-invented several times)

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the little people! Reward those who exhibit company pride; and those who, despite not being salesmen), pass on sales opportunities! Let the technical folks temper over-zealous pitches of the salesmen with reasonable and practical proposals for customers (ie, don't promise the moon, if the shuttle can't even launch yet)

    Pros

    Consonus was the leading hosting provider

    Cons

    VC - Nana Baffour destroyed this company. Immediately after buying it he sold off the assets. What a waste

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate your employees and success

    I have been working at Consonus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great family environment. The entire team was dedicated to providing a great product and customer experience.

    Cons

    Once the venture capitalist started pulling the strings pushing the founders out it was all down hill from there. Poor business decisions lead to lost revenues, strained partner relationships and poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the VC and stick to the tried and true business model.
