    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. Training opportunities in technologies are there if you ask. Friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Company product training is sorely lacking. It's all this self paced online materials that don't go nearly as far as it needs to in order to develop the necessary skill-sets to perform in the role. Company seems unstable at times, constantly acquiring other companies and bringing them into the fold, with the results not being what they expected.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of continuously looking for that next new feature, lets work on making what we have bullet-proof. Our customers expect our products to simply work. Improve internal training...get our training department in the business of training our employees instead of always looking for revenue. The online self-paced materials simply don't cut it. And finally, STOP with the outsourcing...our customers want to work with the experienced support staff in the US based Backline Teams. We are already getting complaints from customer about this so called "Global Backline Team". You cannot replace years of experience with a group of green Network Engineers in India.
