    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Provade full-time

    Pros

    Hard working and smart people. Opportunities to telecommute. Good chance to gain exposure to SaaS and Agile methodology if you join development. Potential for growth if new software works...

    Cons

    Below average compensation and benefits. VMS Software not up to par with SaaS approach. New software showing promise but they are behind the curve, hopefully they can catch up. Dwindling customer base.

    Pros

    The people, the opportunities and the benefits, not to mention being at the beginning of something with HUGE potential.

    Cons

    Like ANY start-up, you have to ask yourself are you willing to put in the 60+ hours a week, being "on call" at any time to help other in need of support, and you MUST have the ability to take initiative to get things done on your own and not look back. You'll make mistakes and you may pay for them, but that's life at a start-up.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to bring on some additional support and focus on a specific direction. In defense, start-ups must adapt and constantly change a bit, but the core of "who you are" must stay the driving force behind your mission to be a success. With that said, there's no reason that better marketing, industry communications and otherwise "perceived product sex appeal" shouldn't also be a significant investment, as you have no doubt successfully invested well in the talent.
