Pros

A great place to work where ppl are friendly and collaborative. Management was transparent and everyone was clear about how they contributed to the overall growth and success of the company.

That was pre-IPO.

All I can say now is that the company continues to be successful in the market and against competitors. Collegues are great though.

Cons

Very little opportunities for technical growth locally. This is not a technology focused company. No real focus on technology advancements. Nor any impression that the company is going to invest in new technologies either.

Mid level management are useless. I have no confidence that management is looking out for my career growth.

Little to no communication from upper level about the direction of the company. Company is mostly investing in offshore engineering teams to meet wall street numbers.

Advice to Management

Any advice to management would just fall on deaf ears.

    Pros

    customers are buying in. They give you table, chair & computer to work with. computer may be sometimes slow given you are engg.

    Cons

    complacently using old technologies. no bandwidth for innovation. no technical leadership. loads of work. mis-management by mid-level managers, incapable ppl at leadership roles.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders should at least make sure that mid level managers do not exploit the engineers via politics & ill treatment.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The people. Lars can be very motivational at times.

    Cons

    Lars means well for the company but he acts very capriciously and can be a jerk. The motivational stuff works well for a time but after a while people figure out that he is not being up front/honest with them and they become disalusioned.

    Also, Lars can be a bit ADD at times ... most CEO's are but he takes it to another level which makes the company very short term focused.

    Advice to Management

    Good results oriented management team but are often too short term focused.
