    Pros

    Doing my job was up to me and I pretty much did my own thing. I had 3 managers in the year and half I was there.

    Cons

    Promises of great wealth with IPO soon to happen, that was in 2005, and just now in 2009 they filed for IPO. They tried and take anything they have to pay for and reverse engineer it and build it themselves. No understanding of how to the day to day operations are to run at a company. When asked Ken one time about a calendaring system he said an employee could walk over to his cube and look on his white board, and others should do the same. yeah that works well.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your product and stop utilizing engineers time to reverse engineer other systems. Better use of company time resources.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Lot of progress seen in teams, so a sense of optimism exists.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. Hard to get resources. Lower management style is stifling.

    Advice to Management

    This is for managers and not necessarily senior management.
    It is better to see the performance of an employee rather than see if he/she reads a newspaper or works from home sometimes. Sick days should be included so people dont come to work with illnesses making the rest of the team sick.
