    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great products and technology, very smart people work and run the company. The management is very responsive to customer needs. The mgr.do things first class,very detailed and don't cut corners on things.

    Cons

    This company invented the term micro managed. You'd be extremely hard pressed to find another company that's more micro managed, the cultre is manage by fear not only sales but most dept.'s in the company. The pay for s/wsales is way below the industry for what your asked to do. Loved the products but wouldn't go back for twice the $$.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any because they wouldn't listen anyway. From their perspective they've been successful doing it their way why change,
