Pros

WinINSTALL product is a good brand. Interesting people. Development had a work at home arrangement until all were laid off and the product development was outsourced to Kiev.

Cons

Scalable is severely understaffed, and work-life balance can be horrible at times. The worst part is that it's clear some of senior management are protecting their own. Several people easily should have been cut during the rounds of layoffs, but weren't. Somewhat dis-organized in leadership direction, somewhat reactive rather than proactive. Innovation efforts were somewhat ad-hoc. Light on the knowledge sharing/education - very much a "figure it out" environment.

Advice to Management

Process innovation, enhance available services, expand/enhance the already successful product line. Maintain the employee satisfaction/morale. Perhaps find a qualified CEO or one that has more business acumen. Consider a change at the executive sales level.
