No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good pay and decent benfits. Great people to work with and very professional environment. Flexibility to work from home.

Cons

Goals are set at unrealistic levels and the only feedback that I recieve from management is when I have failed to submit one of the ever changing manual reports that I have to turn in weekly. No way to truly track my performance since the system shows deals at incorrect dollar amounts and sometimes fails to post alltogether. Doing my job day to day is continually made harder by the systems that have been put in place to supposedly make everything streamlined. Making the sale is just the first step in an unbelievably complicated process for processing orders.

Advice to Management

Set realistic goals and get a handle on performance tracking. Provide an easier process for interfacing with customers and resellers. Value individual contributors.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of great people and cool technology to work with. Results oriented, I was able to do the work the way I wanted as long as I got the job done.

    Cons

    Very top heavy organization. A lot of levels of management, and the only concern seems to be cost. Some of the decisions seem very short sited.

    Advice to Management

    Good quarterly numbers can't be met with cost cutting forever. Eventually you start cutting into things that hurt the business.
