    Pros

    USED to be an awesome culture and workplace. Executive team had a vision

    Cons

    the merger/acquistion resulted in an inordinate amount of lithium leaders staying and a huge amount of Spredfast leaders being shown the door.

    Pros

    Overall, I think Khoros has a great future ahead of it.

    Pros

    Smart people. Strong products. A lot of deep industry knowledge.

    Cons
