    Pros

    - great technology
    - business has economies of scale to leverage
    - blue chip customers
    - good direct management
    - talented recent hires

    Cons

    - limited financial upside opportunities
    - does not invest in internal IT (7 year old email system!)
    - not a fun or cool place to work
    - executives not accountable for product slippage or deficiencies
    - UK based company does not have Silicon Valley drive!

    Advice to Management

    Hold senior executives accountable for their deliverables.
    Staff needs motivation, limited visibility of management does not help the situation. There is hard work ahead to reach the next level of success and there is little drive from management to motivate staff to go the extra mile.

    Competitive pay, good work life balance, great benefits, great people, interesting product, global, solid training, opportunity for growth and development.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems the company is a little resistant to change, they want to keep things as they are. Makes it hard to get to the next level or make things happen.

    Advice to Management

    Open up to change, you have a lot of smart people working for the company with great ideas and experience that want to make a difference.
