    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Teliris full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Awesome place to work while defining Telepresence and building company from scratch
    -Surrounded by equally energetic and passionate people was a big boost
    -The people are awesome in US and UK
    -Exposure to cutting edge technology, and creating product that hid the complex technology behind it
    -Enjoyed mentoring my staff, and enjoyed empowering them and watching them succeed and grow

    Cons

    -Normal pressures of a start-up and pressure that if anyone failed, the company could fail.
    -CEO was brilliant but nearly impossible to deal with. Newer management was ineffective and forgot those that helped build the company from scratch.
    -Almost everyone I hired has left, or was fired.
    -Business promises of equity were not upheld, and were screwed

    Advice to Management

    -Don't abuse your best assets

    Pros

    Technology focus on delivering cloud services that are valuable to large, medium, and small enterprise. Talented and dedicated people are helping shape the future.

    Cons

    Going through growing pains due to changing market. Old style of business holding them back a little but should be able to overcome

    Advice to Management

    take a look around at the overall management and make sure everyone is a fit

    I worked at Teliris full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Majority of people were friendly and worked within the best of their ability to deliver with limited support and guidance. Flexible working and ability to interact easily at all levels within the company.

    Cons

    Absurd level of politics for a small company. Customer facing employees often left to lie to customers to cover product and service deficiencies. Lack of support and clear direction from executive team means employees walk on egg shells, constant reshuffles and threats of job loss.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your market, competitors and solution offering. Remove the blame culture and focus on building a collaborative working environment allowing employees to be successful.

    I worked at Teliris full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No obvious reasons now as heart of organisation has been slowly taken from company over last 4 yrs.
    Pay was always relatively good in comparison to market

    Cons

    Management blinkered by size of organisation in comparison to huge multi national competitors (Cisco etc). Ruthless with employees when cutting costs e.g. if your face didn't fit - wool often pulled over customers eyes with regard to deficiencies in technology

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild the brand, don't be so U.S. focussed
