Pros

The roles are always evolving with market trend and market technology in the software multimedia space and Corel is the market leader in this particular market in many ways. Never boring and always learning (unless again, grunt level)

Cons

Very very top heavy for a small-medium sized company.

Advice to Management

Consolidate each senior managements direction into one and negotiate with the holding interest in the back to make sure the goals are aligned. Too many directions and too many opinions leads to competitor stealing business away.

    Pros

    Good colleagues, talent engineers. People were very nice, helpful, and bright.
    The middle layer managers handle the teams well and continue to improve the development process, including code review, unit tests, continue integration, and keep delivering quality software.

    Cons

    Not innovative enough to get the customers back.
    The senior manager team is too conservative. They cannot react the market change promptly and properly. Just reduce the cost and not have any strategy to invest for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Be ambitious to challenge the market leaders. The customers and market are changing. We must be aggressive to meet our customer's expectations and acquire new customers, or we will lose the future.
