    I worked at HyPerformix full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart, pleasant developers to work with. Flexible management. Small company flexibility.

    Cons

    Small company pains. Unfortunately followed the build-it-and-they-will-come philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    None. It all ended in 2010 with the acquisition.

    I have been working at HyPerformix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some good people and interesting technology. The product is stable since it has been around a long time and customers like it.

    Cons

    The market space is small. The company is trying to position products to create a larger market for it. Not many customers want to spend the time it takes to learn to use the product.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create clear goals and get all employees behind a common strategy.

    Pros

    Interesting technology to add to your knowledgebase, if your background is technical software sales.

    Cons

    Product training is nil. The company is 30 years old and still doing less than $10million per year - what does that tell you? The sales cycle is anywhere from 12 to 24 months, so they practice the revolving-door style of sales management. They kick you out just when your deals are about to close and then they don't have to pay the commission. This is not just my observation - I know of 4 other sales execs this happened to. The inner circle consists of connivers and back-stabbers too, so watch what you say and watch your back.

    Advice to Management

    I doubt that management gives a **** about this subject. It's not that they're clueless - this is their chosen mode of running the company.
