    Pros

    As an employee, you can tell management if you want something and they will listen politely. You don't always get what you want, but they won't get upset. I think it's because they have to relate to customers and they try not to burn any bridges. There are many employees who left at then came back.

    Cons

    The company is sales oriented. It seems that sales gets a lot of recognition and not so much other people. Also, like most companies, there is a push to do more with less people than what you really need.

    Advice to Management

    Try to spread some of the praises that sometimes comes from customers to other members of the team. Not just sales. Remember that there are technical people, administrative people that also make things possible.
