    I have been working at Jacada full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company invests in people who invest in the company. Other employees are joy to work with. If you do your part well, there is a great flexibility of where and when you do it. Killer product in good timing.

    Cons

    Salary/benefits could be a better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the employees and they return the favor. Keep searching for the next product idea.

    I worked at Jacada full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Jacada is a progressive company with great ideas and great technology. Really smart software developers and an understanding of software development and QA cycle.

    Cons

    This could be taken as pro or con- from the onset - the technology was often pushing the envelope of other emerging technologies and what I think of as often being at the bleeding edge of technology. Sometime made for a challenging environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    When I was working there, the culture of the company was employee focused and had many great employee outings - making it a fun place to work. Remember that keeping employees happy is an easy way to motivate and keep them.

    Pros

    Really seems like a start up with an established company. Management is willing to hear ideas to improve and I believe the current leadership is taking the company in the right direction.

    Its an exciting place to work with lots of opportunity

    Cons

    don't know where we will be in 3 years, but challenges provide opportunity!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you push for growth of employees!

    Pros

    Small size company with opportunity to learn or work across departments/roles

    Cons

    Too many changes in senior management

    Advice to Management

    Fluctuations of the economy and stock price cannot be the guiding line for running a company this size.

    Pros

    stock options, decent people to work with, great place to be a consultant if you like to travel, benefits are good, but not the greatest. Company has money in the bank

    Cons

    Senior Management has no clue on how to run a profitable organization. Past CEO thought that walking around and yelling at people was considered motivation. He was a sales guy that should have stayed with sales.

    Advice to Management

    Stop freely spending the money on items like paper flags to cover the walls. Use it for something important like good marketing efforts and consultant training.

    "Jacada was once a great place to work, and it can be again."

    Pros

    Jacada has a lot of smart people, and great technology. Under the correct circumstances, Jacada could become the dominant force in automation techologies.

    Cons

    Over the past few years, a lot of the perks of working for Jacada were slowly taken away to help out the company's bottom line. This was spear-headed by Paul O'Callaghan, the company's previous CEO. He turned Jacada from a warm, inviting, fun, small company to a cold, desolate corporate wasteland.

    Advice to Management

    Jacada's management should make Jacada a fun place to work again, and focus on creating new opportunites for current employees. As it is, there's little to no room for growth within the organization,
