    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    - Good professional development as a small company dealing with big projects meant you would get exposed to things in a scale you wouldnt otherwise

    Cons

    - incompetent HR
    - new management hired was of poor quality and lacked the leadership capabiltiy
    - managed based on strict commands rather than the more effective empowerment and team based projects
    - overly confident managers lead to poor quality work and pushed incomplete projects

    Advice to Management

    - Change your local management, a large exodus of resources is typically a good sign of poor management
    - address low morale and motivational levels for your employees, people dont work as hard for you when they know you consider them as expendable as a stapler.

    Pros

    ERG is a provider of fare collection systems used in transit environments. They use interesting technology to provide projects that serve people. The integration of these technologies into transit systems can be challenging both from an engineering, and customer satisfaction stand point.
    Working with talented software developers and engineering staff was also exciting. There was opportunity to work with technologies new to me, and apply my existing skills to resolved performance problems.

    Cons

    My circumstances required a good deal of travel away from my home. Being a projects based industry, this was unavoidable.
    Working with transit customers can be challenging. Stakeholders may not have bought into the project, which makes customer satisfaction difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue supporting your talented employees and attract and retain new ones. Encourage more timely and accurate information sharing among technical team.
