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

    Pros

    Very friendly, collaborative, work environment.
    Employees are empowered to take ownership and drive success in their functional areas.
    Fantastic facilities.
    Sevone is using the latest, state of the art, software, cloud, and analytics technologies for its new solution.
    Very interesting solution space.
    Sevone has evolved, adapted, and overcome its problems from years past and is well positioned for rapidly growing new markets.
    Stable customer base.

    Cons

    Total addressable market is large and growing quickly. Sevone needs to very selectively define the path it wants to take and the customer base it wants to conquer. It doesn't have the resources to be all things to all customers in its market space.

    Advice to Management

    Sevone has a very compelling product and solution offering. Focus new investment on product management, marketing, and sales to increase the breadth of customers beyond the current loyal set.

    Pros

    Good environment with good professionals and good to boost troubleshooting skills.

    Cons

    Very poor training on the product. No training provided at all for NMS or other appliance solution. Must learn the product by self learning facing lots of challenging situations. Can feel the pressure

    Advice to Management

    Release pressure to new hires by providing a proper training path. Not because just a person learnt the product well by himself everyone will be able to achieve the same thing without proper training.

    Pros

    Energetic young team trying to build a new platform in a mature market. Has tremendous potential to be an exciting place to be and do exciting things in an otherwise boring market.

    Cons

    Management driven by greed. Willing to eat their own alive. Management struggles to find purpose in the company other than making a profit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating people like pawns on your greed-driven chess board. Real employers manage performance, delivery and quality. You manage how much you get paid and kill everyone along the way who keeps you from your greedy goals.

    Pros

    Nice office, lax environment. Fun opportunities.

    Cons

    5 years too late on technology update, no trust in the engineers to make changes, below market pay rates. Truly a useless CEO. CTOs oursource to companies that they have a stake in (has happened at least twice)

    Advice to Management

    Hire CEO that can do something besides watch the money pile diminish. stop hiring CTOs and senior managers that don't understand their markets or have huge conflicts of interest.
