    Pros

    Management is fantastic and easy to communicate with. You have the ability to work with a great amount of people.

    Cons

    Lack of general knowledge since employees are specialized into a certain aspect of the system. Two silos exist between developing and supporting the software.

    Pros

    Family-owned, and very personable. President knows everyone by name, even as we approach 200 employees. Offers a quarterly bonus to all employees (depending on sales that quarter). A little bit of flexibility in work schedule.

    Cons

    A lot of technical changes planned in the future puts a lot of pressure on the R&D department for the next few years, but will be well worth it.

    I have been working at Global Shop Solutions (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual family owned environment.
    They have been growing steadily while I've been there, so there has been room for exceptional employees to move up. (Although there have not been a lot of new supervisor/lead positions, they do promote from within.)
    Financially stable and able to grow even in poor economic conditions

    Cons

    Currently experiencing growing pains, specifically with construction to make room for new employees
    Currently implementing a lot of infrastructure changes that make keeping their product stable more interesting. However, these changes will allow for significant future growth.
    Management wants everything done, and done now. They sometimes don't realize how much shifting priorities can affect schedules. However, they wouldn't be very good managers if they didn't want more from their employees than they are currently getting.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck getting to MS SQL Server. It could be an interesting road ahead. With all of the growth it is not surprising that some things have fallen through the cracks, but over all things have gone well so far. Keep up the good work.
