Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redmond, WA
Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redmond, WA
Approves of CEO

Pros

Work life balance
Technology impressive.
Stock tends to do well
Mark Templeton the CEO has a charitable and good philosophy about life, and how to run a company.

Cons

Headquartered in Florida sort of podunk mentality compared to other software companies I have worked for. People don't get back to you. Sense of urgency is low.
Working in a small remote office in Redmond was not ideal to be absorbed into the culture.

Advice to Management

Lots of turnover for Product Management. Need a good leader there.
There is a lot of though that has been done on the handling of acquisitions, but for remote offices it is still hard to feel like you are part of the company.
Stay on track with the new focus on UI and UX. It is a good thing.
