    Pros

    Friendly people at the lower ranks
    Alternative week pizzas, euchre games.

    Cons

    Lack of direction in terms of road map.
    Bias to action is one of the core values- Management has no bias to action. Brilliant in blaming/firing people.
    Brilliant in forcing the employees to take some random surveys just to show the lower ranks that they are in an awesome company
    Brilliant in paying sub par salaries and salary hikes

    Advice to Management

    Be sensitive to your employee needs. Your actions are reflecting in the stock price.
    Use less of Brilliance and more bias to action.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Halogen Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    regular pay check, good friends, hard to think of any really
    Christmas Party

    Cons

    No stock options being offered even almost 1 year after IPO
    20% to 30% below average market SALARIES
    Management team very incompetent.....Directors who have no idea on how to lead people....
    Just promoted internally very incompetent individuals for sales manager roles....friends of friends...drinking buddies etc....other highly qualified internal candidates never got a shot.
    Too much of a Country Club atmosphere within the Senior Managers and VP's group.

    Advice to Management

    Take your stock option payouts and go on vacation...hire an entirely new team from CEO down....including most Directors.
