    Pros

    Great support and resources availble in both EMEA and the US. Good cross over assistance between different departments e.g. Sales and Tech Support.

    Cons

    There is not great scope to move within the Company beyond Sales and Management. Not many employees move into the Tech support side of things and perhaps this should be encoraged move with the introduction of optional training courses made available.
