No opinion of CEO

Pros

Freedom. Good group. The corporate attitude that clung to a startup feel. I never had a bad day.

Cons

It was not a challenge. The company clings to the early days of tech startups. The sales team is strong, but everything else is breaking down.

Advice to Management

I would start looking to the future. I would expand the actual application. The overall idea is strong, but the technology is not user friendly. There is a heavy investment in the current technology and my bet is that someone else is going to make a better product for much less.

    Pros

    Every one loves the product. Still a small company so there are lots of opportunities for growth. Very nice management team.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment so sometimes in can be overwhelming and exhausting. Lots of remote employees so communication is difficult.

    "Not bad. Industry leader. Definitely a disconnect between Senior Management and line employees."

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    1. Very supportive employees.
    2. Great product. Market leader.
    3. Good training

    Cons

    1. Sells a cutting edge database product, however the software they use internally is archaic and counter-productive.
    2. Horrible benefits. 401k is bad.
    3. They are currently more reactive to competition than proactive. This could allow for a competitor to get a stronger foothold.

    Advice to Management

    1. Improve your employee benefits.
    2. Be a true market leader, don' get comfortable.
