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

    Pros

    Revenue! They actually have some
    Leadership team - they know what they're doing and most of them actually care
    Location - North End, it doesn't get much better than that
    Founder involvement - the founder is still in charge of the product so there is still cohesiveness of product from the early days
    Customer-centric decision making and the person who heads up their support team holds the company accountable for making good decisions for their customers
    They are frugal and making sure they see profitability
    Free snacks and bagels on Fridays

    Cons

    They are frugal and therefore very lean
    There are several members of the management team who constantly seem too stressed to even look you in the eye
    They outsource both development and some support
    Still using some dated technologies to save money
    They spend virtually nothing on marketing

    Advice to Management

    Look at the leadership team and make sure these people are leaders and not just knowledgable. If people cringe when they need to deal with someone it doesn't matter how many advanced degrees the person has, they're a detriment to your organization. Also, backfill responsibly when people leave, failing to do so makes things a lot harder for everyone else and others will end up leaving.
