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

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, large number of large telco customers provide excellent challenges. Contributions are usually recognized and plenty of room to grow.

    There is a lot of discussion on Culture & Values however (see con)

    Cons

    Growth coming from acquisitions and management is struggling to integrate new technologies and talent. This is leading to confusion in Sales and increased costs in R&D/Support. If this doesn't change there may be a limited future.

    Culture and Values seems to be mostly lip service. Not much emphasis on developing talent and retention of key individuals is reactionary.

    Advice to Management

    Improve Product Management which should be addressing the "Con" and providing leadership to the customer facing teams.

    I worked at Redknee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In the past, Redknee used to be a company with good products, technically competent employees, valuable customers and great work culture.

    Cons

    Redknee employees have been fired after ESW tookover and have been replaced by Crossover freelancers (Employees, Management and even CEO is a freelancer) who do not understand the domain, technology and products. The freelancers have no idea of telecom domain and are only interested in hourly billing. Nobody really cares for the technology, products or customers. They have no commitment and leave for another assignment when it gets unmanageable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fooling around fake productivity metrics, imaginative customer success and all other metrics that you use to bleed Redknee only to benefit Crossover. You failed miserably. Admit it.

    Pros

    Was awesome working with the people before Investors took over and made it into a money-siphoning business where they milk the money from public company to feed their own so-called 'Super employees'.

    Bad management after the hostile take over. Completely bad decisions, Customers have been lost and people have been laid off mercilessly across the globe
