    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, very accomodating regarding time off. Very bright, young staff in general. Willng to try new ideas. Very fast paced with regard to new innovations and software updates.

    Cons

    Innovations and software updates not always thought through. Encountered numerous bugs and flaws that weren't corrected until discovered in the field applications. Upper management tended to have attitiude of "we know everything" just do your job. As sense of arrogance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Especually those in the field who service the kiosks daily. Don't ignore the customer base. Customers will try the kiosks once, but you have to give them a reason to come back.
