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

    Pros

    Team is empowered to wow customers. Best software in the space and getting better quickly. Motivated team and culture.

    Cons

    We haven't told our story very well historically so we need to improve on that. Need to connect the dots with Textura more aggressively.

    Advice to Management

    More of the same. Keep bringing the customers closer - we love 'em!

    Pros

    - Free snacks and coffee
    - Affordable health insurance and other benefits
    - Highly trained product development team willing to support the sales team
    - Convenient location and parking

    Cons

    - Very little industry education provided to new salespeople

    - Sales goals and expectations are unrealistic and unenforced
    - Over-competitive and negative sales environment
    - Often ignored by parent corporation due to the relatively small size of the company

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere and great people who are easy to get along with. Management is easy to get along with and understanding when available.

    Cons

    Management is not readily available for discussions or advice most days. Never received proper instruction or expectations for the job and had to kind of wing it and watch others. This isn't a bad thing, it was just annoying at some points.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees know what the issue is you have with them and provide a job description to follow.

    Pros

    Great product with great customer support team. Lunch on Fridays helps to bring the office together.

    Cons

    It was a great environment, but overbearing management makes it seem like they don't trust the people they hire. Make sure that you get things in writing.

    I have been working at Latista Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working here for about a year and I am very pleased with my experience to the most part. LATISTA has the best product in the industry, an awesome senior management that runs the show diligently and a great team of employees that brings it all together - all the essential ingredients needed to be the next big thing in the AEC industry! We recently went through an acquisition and every employee I spoke to was pleased with the outcome, the founders of the company went the extra mile to make sure not only the transition was smooth but every single employee was protected.

    Cons

    The company is going through some serious growth spurt and it can sometime be overwhelming to meet your manager's expectations, but the management has laid out a new hiring plan for 2014 to balance the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Improve inter-department communication, continue to reward hard-working employees and keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Work hard and enjoy the rewards. Management is very helpful and approachable in every department and they value every employee's opinions. Leading technology in the industry with no signs of slowing down.

    Cons

    As with any rapidly growing company there are some growing pains. Fortunately most of these have been addressed already.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push the envelope on all fronts, believe in your team and we will do great things

    Pros

    Latista is a great company to work for as long as you are willing to work hard. Employees are friendly and considerate. Senior management is very approachable (an open door policy).

    Cons

    Salary is a little low and there could be more opportunity to grow within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to believe in your employees and give them more opportunity to grow. Overall, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Senior management trusts their employees. There is a lot of opportunity for growth and many exciting projects upon which to work.

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly. That brings typical growing pains (a lot of training, out-growing our office), but I'm excited about what it means for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Our recent acquisition opens the door for incredible growth. Maintaining our culture and adding office "perks" will help us attract and retain top talent; trust in the existing senior leadership team will keep us on track; and a strategy open to innovation and industry-disruption will take us beyond our goals in the years to come.

    Pros

    The senior employees are welcoming and will help you to get to speed with understanding the product and best practices.

    Cons

    The salary seems to be low in comparison to the work load and other competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees who are consistent and willing to go the extra mile feel appreciated and valued more often.
