    I have been working at LANSA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Talented and dedicated people; No micro-management; Privately owned; Profitable; Fantastic benefits; Great work-life balance; Definitely a "family" type of organization.

    Cons

    Some long-tenured staff can be resistant to change; Could offer a better match to retirement account (401k) although the vesting period is only 2 years.

    Pros

    The company in North America has a great culture, is full of smart people, and is well run - good leadership.

    Cons

    Development tools are a tough sell in today's world. So is selling software dependent upon a range of hardware - system I / AS400.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great work, benefits and good working environment. Most people were nice meaning some people were supportive while there others that were too competitive.

    Cons

    Too competitive, people weren't really willing to help others. Wasn't a team environment. Got blamed even though it was not your fault to make the company look good to the client.

    Advice to Management

    Be more geared to advance your current workers to the next level. Promote more team work environment to bring up positive attitudes.

    I worked at LANSA full-time

    Pros

    Relatively flexible hours.
    Work from home opportunities.
    Opportunity to be involved in all aspects of business -- good place for new graduates to learn business skills (not technology skills)

    Cons

    Proprietary Software is out dated and you will spend 80+% of your time using it. Very challenging to overcome the flaws of the software.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation is not competitive. Really need to identify the valuable resources and reward them. Too many have been lost already.

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

    Pros

    -Has a few big company accounts for now
    -Has decent business partners for now
    -Upper management are extremely well compensated

    Cons

    -Proprietary programming language not used elsewhere (already a small market)
    -Shrinking market share (many big names have moved on to different technology, even business partners are migrating)
    -High turn over
    -No corporate culture
    -Below industry wage for consultants
    -High variation in salary within same level
    -High workload, no work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Pay consultants their worth and you may receive innovation to get out of such a small market share.
    Focus less on paying management well, otherwise there will be nothing left to manage.
