I have been working at Cakewalk full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Laid back environment. Most employees are very talented and dedicated. Some products are very well made.

Cons

Not very good communication from management. No employee reviews or pay raises, contributing to overall bad morale. Advancement is too often subject to cronyism.

Advice to Management

Introduce merit/performance based pay and advancement.

    I have been working at Cakewalk (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at Cakewalk for over 10 years and love the company and the culture. Being a musician, it's really fun to work on a product that you actually enjoy using. You get to work with a lot of smart people and play around with cool gear and software. The environment is challenging but definitely rewarding. Also not a lot of politics going in the background, everyone is super nice and gets along which is a welcome change from some of my other jobs.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of that outweighs the pros.
