    Great Benefits. work life balance. You feel like you are a part of a big family. Great Culture. employees are treated with respect and courtesy...except the end user dept however.

    a few acquisitions would be nice.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment, friendly coworkers, well-known and established company, and great exposure to cutting edge technologies and the smartest companies and people out there.

    Cons

    Analysts do research as well as business development, product management, product planning, customer support, marketing, most sales (no commissions, though). There used to be resources for marketing and business development but those have been cut and not replaced. Analysts have too many hats to wear, but any time that this is pointed it, management blames it on nuisance individuals. There is a growing number of demoralized and disenfranchised people in recent months.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, take exit interviews to heart-- lots of the best people are leaving and are offering sincere advice on how to improve things.
