Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Telogis full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

High growth company with IPO planned in a couple of years.
Recent influx of capital from Kleiner Perkins includes a seat on the board, so the company should become more directed and structured.
Good story for "platform", not just product. Finally getting off Silverlight in 2014 with planned Javascript release.

Cons

No executive plan for managing its growth. Hired a Director of Sales Operations who quit in 3 months.
Multiple sales teams calling on the same prospects due to acquisitions and overlapping product lines.
No marketing support or even a plan to generate leads other than trade shows and cold calls.
Long sales cycle. No leads means no pipeline which means no commission.

Advice to Management

Invest in developing staff, not just replacing them. Support staff is good but overworked.
Control the nepotism and favoritism.
Hire a Director of HR, if not a VP. Outsourced HR doesn't work when a company gets this big.

    Great people in a rapidly growing company.

    I have been working at Telogis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Make it what you want - take advantage of relative autonomy and be the driver of your own success. They trust that you know your job and that you're ready to make something of yourself here
    - Definitely take care of their employees. Best benefits package I've had in a 20-year career.
    - Smart people at the helm who have your best interest in mind. Dedicated, working late, true stake in success, growth and a deep responsibility to this team
    - Leadership expresses gratitude
    - Fast-paced and challenging, but not for everyone -- software moves fast and you have to be ready to move quickly

    Cons

    - If you're needing a whole lot of hand-holding and direction, this is probably not the place for you; if you want to take the bull by the horns and carve your own space and make your own success, this is the place
