Pros

Parallels technology is incredible competitive. OS virtualization provides lots of benefits and if the company made an attempt to really market it, VMware would be nervous.

Cons

Senior management had NO communication down at all.
At one time, this company owed me 12 weeks of salary and I never received an explanation why this happened.
Russian founders brought their culture to the US. They frequently lay off and rehire if anyone does any thinking or questioning about strategy. They pit people against each other and just expect you to work and be grateful for a job.

Advice to Management

Grow up. Don't spend the profits on your "toys." Spend it on growing the business and learn MBWA. (that's wandering around not wandering away). Understand that when the economy gets better, you will experience the workforce voting with their feet.
Serguei makes very irrational decisions based on emotion and then expects everyone to do whatever it takes to match his "world view"
