    Pros

    The company is under new management and the future looks very strong. I've been most impressed with the people - the team is extremely collaborative and smart and everyone works very hard.

    Cons

    The former leadership team was disorganized, leaving some hurdles to overcome but with a new leadership team in place, the company is now progressing in the right direction.

    Pros

    *Great people running Main Data (now) *Streamlined Decision making process (great communication between Sales, Marketing, Engineering & Ops) *Investing in people & platform *Fun company perks (summer outings to baseball games & boat tours, tons of snacks & coffee, & weekly chain massages to name a few) *

    Cons

    The past...previous leadership has left those of us here, who are all committed to the company and product, running away from the past and into the future with new vigor and determination to make MDG a household name in Executive Comp Software!

    Past management was disorganized. However, operations have been overhauled under new leadership, which gives Main Data a bright future.

    Poor Work Place Morale

    Pros

    I enjoyed the commraderie amongst my peers at Main Data Group. We enjoyed each others company, and for the most part everyone was helpful and hardworking. There were a few really dedicated managers that really cared about their team, and did their best to make things better for their employees.

    Cons

    Sadly many of us are no longer there, including the managers who worked hard for us. There was extreme mismanagement by the owner. His vision and direction were constantly in flux and because of this there was an enormous amount of instability. We experienced high turnover, with many people leaving to pursue other opportunities because the future of the company always felt fragile. The owner also had a tendancy to talk poorly of managers and employees to other employees. As time went on, this got worse, and our morale erroded. Unfortunately, he ran off many of the talented people who worked there in the time that I was there.

    Pros

    -There are a lot of opportunities to learn new and interesting pieces of a business as the organization is very open with access to the CEO at almost all hours of the day -The ability to communicate with engineering teams to build out product specifications or to change the data pipeline was the fastest I have seen in any company -The company works with a lot of data :) -A lot of room for advancement if you like working at a fast pace and take on as many projects as they throw at you

    Cons

    -The merit structure of the company is a bit confusing -While the freedom and the ability to touch different departments is interesting, there was no clear career guidance in what particular direction you would go

    Terrible place to work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Learned a lot about executive compensation, other employees were fun to work with.

    Cons

    CEO thinks everyone that works for him is garbage. CEO is a self inflated title, he creates issues between departments. Telling one department he is going to fire someone to bring on someone else that can do more. Goes to the other person and says the same thing to the other department. Gets upset when we talk to each other trying to give a heads up. He can sit down with Engineering, Sales, Marketing, and come up with a plan for a couple hours walk in the next morning and the entire plan will be erased and replaced with "his" plan because he is the "CEO" not sure why we had the meeting then. He berates and belittles his wife in front of employees. Overall the worst place I have ever worked with the worst environment ever. If you have to report to the CEO - DO NOT WORK THERE. He will sell you a dream and deliver a nightmare

    A company who's CEO constantly changes direction. The CEO creates a toxic environment.

    Pros

    New hires want to contribute and do a good job. Relaxed working environment. Company catered lunch with beer on Fridays. Fair compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Unfortunately within weeks new employees realize that just pleasing the management's current and ever changing focus is more important than performing the job functions they were hired for. CEO gossips about employee's job performance to other employees and makes degrading and sexist comments non stop. Apparently this was a startup company and funding was sketchy. It seemed like every Monday the CEO would change the company's direction over the weekend and whatever tasks we were working on Friday would be obsolete on Monday.

    Pros

    Highly motivated team under new ownership Very focused firm with clear objectives and direction New products and features New leadership Excellent data quality Very team oriented

    Cons

    There are other firms in the same space, so to stick out and increase market share, it is important to continuously improve and differentiate ourselves. But, this is true in probably every industry.

    Pros

    - Great management, tech and client service teams - Intelligent, informed colleagues - Highly collaborative - Substantial investment in database upgrades - Good pay - Excellent tech support - Very flexible work arrangements, you don't have to live in Northern California or Boston

    Cons

    - Lots of teleconferences / emails (maybe that's just the downside of being able to work remotely) - Team is still very small, needs to expand
