Approves of CEO

I worked at OPNET full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Focused, visionary leadership.
Well-chosen new technology acquisitions.
Smart, motivated team, top to bottom; good camaraderie.
Engineering- and technology-friendly company and management.

Cons

Bottlenecks because of micromanagement. Loose product definition discipline.

Recruiting/hiring structure seemed to be aimed at fitting a specific mold. I might not have been hired if my team hadn't been brought aboard en masse.

As with many SW development houses, the drive for new functionality leaves numerous old issues and enhancement requests from customers in limbo.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at OPNET full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Low stress except for maybe one or two weeks out of the year. Flexible hours. Compensation is fair. Office location is excellent, near several restaurants and close to metro. Relatively flat management hierarchy (although this may not stay the case after the acquisition). Employee retention is good.

    Cons

    Not many additional benefits or perks. When the CEO/CTO tell you to do something, there's not much room for argument.
