Pros

Great products, a belief in doing the right thing for our customers, a passion about our impact on IT and the planet and a great team to make it all happen.

Cons

The pace of change, demanding the best of you everyday, a growing company now with shareholder responsibilities is seeing an increase in red tape and focus on costs, to the detriment of innovation and delivery.

Advice to Management

Don't loose sight of what we were capable of pre-IPO, we are successful not only because of great products, but mainly by the way we executed our business. Changing that significantly by constraining how we execute may breed resentment and loss of job satisfaction.

    Pros

    Customers like to work with us, lots of opportunities for going in new directions.

    Cons

    Lack of support from management in terms of resource to make things happen... it's like you have to do it on your own, and what is stated as a priority by management is often not the way resources are allocated leading to conflict and paralysis.

    Information management is abysmal, and lack of co-ordination across teams is laughable.

    Advice to Management

    Work better together and the rest of the company might do the same: and please FUND initiatives to match your words.
