Pros

The company is full of good people to work with. There seems to be an unwritten rule of 'no jerks allowed'. You can talk with anyone in management that you want to, people are accessible. The pay is good. There are some pretty smart people in the company. They recognize that you have a life outside of work.

Cons

It's a small company, so you can't expect all the support stuff you get in a big company. There isn't any sales management at HQ so if your job involves communication with sales, it's tougher than when sales management is local. The company has been around a while, so it doesn't have the buzz some other places do.

    Pros

    Composite is not afraid to try new things. They regularly innovate, which has made them the unquestioned leader in their space. Plus they put a high priority on hiring very competent people and are not afraid to push out those that don't keep up.

    I like the fact that they stay very close to their customers and help them when they get into trouble. This happens regularly since the software is used for the biggest and most complex projects by very large corporations.

    The value that Composite brings to their customers is unquestioned. This is a technical company tackling very difficult problems that others cannot solve.

    This is a company that takes itself seriously, and takes care of its employees well.

    Cons

    Composite is really into enterprise software. If you're not, then you won't be happy.

    Composite is fascinated by the biggest data problems. If you're an application guy, not for you.

    The work is very technical. Difficult to build and challenging to sell. Not an easy road.

    The company is not into some of the popular categories like social networking or mobile apps (but it seems to grow substantially every year and appears quite healthy).

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    It is a technology based company from top to bottom.
    If you are at HQ you are taken care of very well.

    Cons

    If you work outside of San Mateo you are completely ignored.
    The technology has lost its advantege in the market place. Competitors on the high end and the low end have overtaken us.
    The sales organization is completely inept. All resource of the company are focused in one or two regions in the north east causing very anemic growth for the last three years.
    Completely disconnected management.
    Marketing is an absolute joke.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in the field listening than talking.
