    Pros

    Great place to work if you're in it for the long haul
    Great benefits
    Amicable work environment
    Flexible schedules
    Managers are real nice people
    Co-workers are genuinely interested in helping you out
    Lot of opportunities to learn and grow via trainings

    Cons

    Managers seem to lack decision making powers about the future of their product, and the few who wield the power don't seem to be very coherent.
    Climbing up the ladder will take very long, no matter how amazing you are. It's become one of those companies where every employee (as long as you are not one of the worst performing employees) gets promoted every so often. And when you're performing really good and still don't get promoted, the reason you get is that senior management doesn't want a lot of people moving towards the top so fast!
    No matter what the HR says, the salaries are not better than most companies in the area. They are towards the lower end of the spectrum.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get your act straight. Focus on a small number of products but make them *really* worthwhile. Don't keep changing your minds too often. Not only does it confuse and annoy your customers, but also your employees.

    "Performance measured by popularity rather than results"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Free Starbucks coffee, candy, sodas, filtered water in all break rooms. 4 week sabbatical every 5 years for all employees.

    Cons

    My organization has no documented processes, procedures or templates. Information is very hard to find and is put out in various systems based on individual preferences. Attempts to normalize processes or procedures are not supported by individuals or management. Consistent poor feedback based on measurable actions is not acted upon.

    Advice to Management

    Take action on key managers who receive consistent poor reviews from peers and others rather than let a poor manager drive productivity and morale down for entire teams.
