Pros

The products are very cool and fun to work on, the big picture objective of improving medical training is one that makes it easier to come to work on Mondays. Because it's a small company, there are lots of opportunities to work on things outside your official job title. The overall compensation package is pretty good for a small company. Many of the individual contributors and middle management are smart, dedicated employees who really care about the projects and people working on them.

Cons

Senior management is new and treats the employees like commodities. As of early 2009 they are laying off lots of people, including many valuable contributors. The long term planning seems non-existent.

Advice to Management

Do a better job training / mentoring your existing employees prior to terminating them. You have shed a lot of great talent since Clent came on board. Spend more time on long range planning and communicating those plans to the employees. Start making more decisions based on the long range goals of the company rather than quarter to quarter.

    Pros

    Great work culture, lots of emphasis on innovation. Interdepartmental collaboration is possible and encouraged. The small-medium size of the company allows the familiarity with all the employees working there.

    Bureaucracy in the work place. Management is hard to satisfy. Alot of extra hours of work is expected but not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees about the future of the company. Reward effort not just results especially for employees who are working extra hours.
