    "Awesome place to learn, with no benefits and screwed up execution. Engineers rule, make descisions,"

    Pros

    Interesting technology, good people, nice atmosphere

    Cons

    Technology is no longer relevant.

    Advice to Management

    Dwindling revenues lead to a lot of bad decision-making at the executive level. I worked in one organization where the Director of Development communicated at the All-hands, "I don't know where we are going...you guys can figure it out!"

    This was our leader?
