    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great co-workers, knowledge is shared and opportunity to work up or across different teams. Flexible time off and management is friendly towards a work life balance.

    Cons

    Low wages when compared to the other companies in the Denver metro area. It takes a lot of effort to get promoted even when your doing the needed work.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat by firing non-performing engineers and instead focus on the young engineers who are performing beyond the call of duty and compensate them accordingly.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You're given a lot of freedom to work on very interesting projects. The technology is impressive and is fun to work with. Lower level management is very helpful in filling in the gaps that are lacking from upper management. Strong camaraderie between teams along with a playful work environment makes the typical workday very enjoyable.

    Cons

    Weak benefits compared to similar companies in the area. On paper doesn't look so bad but there are so many caveats and little details that make them significantly worse. Never expect a bonus for any hard work you've done. Upper level management treats employees like cattle, unwilling to change polices to reflect a technology-based company and instead treats employees as if they worked in a call center. Company doesn't recognize many federal holidays, nor provides enough vacation days for a good work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. Listen to feedback and implement some of the employee's suggestions. Be more flexible in handling of benefits. Provide motivation for employees to stay for the long term.
