I have been working at Tangoe full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

most people are good to work with
work from home beneficial
work only gets to you if you let it

Cons

thankless, no recognition
greatly reduced growth opportunity - it was good before Tangoe went public, but now there is a structure and plenty of employees who are ahead of you in line
fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants training
useless metrics
skewed /poorly set client expectations

Advice to Management

training is crucial

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, casual work environment, some very intelligent and savvy people that really understand the market potential for the product.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Since going public, concern is focused on acquisitions, increasing revenue while lowering overhead. Unfortunately, management is willing to lower margins so significantly that employee morale suffers. More work, less pay, fewer benefits. Very unorganized between divisions within the company. The left hand rarely has any idea what the right hand is doing or how they do it. Consequently, work duplication and headaches abound. Additionally, the best and brightest eventually leave for better opportunities because management has only recently developed a raise structure that rewards performance. There is a large group of employees that were hired when salaries were much higher that do not perform at the same level of lesser-paid employees. Management sometimes appears to be developing strategies on the fly (a throw everything at the wall and lets see what sticks kind of mentality) that results in frustration as processes constantly change and job performance expectations that are never uniform. Processes are starting to be streamlined, but there's still a lot of work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    A good summary of problems would be that management doesn't seem to understand or care about the grievances of their subordinates. Direct supervisors are very supportive, but they are not the decision makes. It doesn't feel like anyone cares about your successes, only your failures. Management should learn to recognize and reward hard and accurate work and high performance or only those looking to do the minimum to not be fired are likely to remain long-term.
