Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great work - life balance
Excellent benefits

Cons

No vision
No accountability
Creativity and "get 'er done" attitude is not rewarded
No consistency in decision-making process
Very political environment

Advice to Management

Times are changing... speed up and embrace it or die. TechSmith makes cool products but lacks an overall lack of how to operate in non-1985 times.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great people mostly, great parties, great benefits, decent bonuses. Love the products and everyone else does too, lots of customer love and pride in where you work.

    Cons

    Money if you aren't a developer or in sales. Lots of differences of value to the company of different departments, and if you are in one of the not-valued departments, you feel like you're on the outside looking in at a really great place to work.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Okemos, MI
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay in development.
    Tons of non-monetary benefits (casual environment, flex time, a commitment to work/life balance).

    Cons

    No clear career growth opportunities outside of moving into management.
    Lack of leaders among management.
    Low salaries outside of development.

    Advice to Management

    For young employees, you're competing with a national job market, not just the local Michigan one. To retain and attract future leaders, spend a little money and make them think of TechSmith as a place where they can build a career.
