I have been working at Vectorworks full-time

Pros

- lots of opportunities to learn new technology
- professional atmosphere
- invests in hardware and software to improve productivity
- it is possible to work on collaborative and interesting projects
- you know that you are creating value; many many very creative professionals use the software product for important work.
- no one is pushed to work crazy hours. Some Software Engineers do so because they want to complete their projects.

Cons

- low salary compared to similar positions in the area
- plays catch up to competitors rather than setting the standards.
- tries to do everything for everyone with not enough resources which results in half-baked features
- need leadership to invigorate employees to focused and motivating goals
- some projects are boring or don't make a lot of business sense (employees need to _speak_ up if you're not doing something you don't like).
- management doesn't always listen and great employees leave after not being heard.
- is a little behind the times in terms of software development processes or work policies (such as telecommuting, core hours, etc).

Advice to Management

Take some risks, invest in User Experience designers and product designers, focus on key goals, and stop wasting time on features that no one uses.
