    Pros

    Great products, interesting work, and great people. Salary is competitive, but don't expect too many other perks. Work-life balance is heavy on the work side.

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement, red tape, and senior management interference. This shows lack of trust and the constant interference ripples through the organization causing undue stress and anxiety. The employees spend more time jumping through hoops than developing products.

    Advice to Management

    Less criticizing and more coaching. Empower your managers and employees to make decisions. Put more focus on your customer relationships. Recognize that you are not the smartest person in the company and leverage your experts.

    Pros

    Nobody cares how many hours you spend at work as long as you get the work done
    Competitive compensation
    Good products to work on

    Cons

    Growth depends on how good you are in pandering to your bosses
    Management is young and shortsighted

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced people at the top
    Ensure your employees are taken care off. Hire more people instead of pressurizing existing employees, and constantly fire fighting

    Pros

    * Cool products
    * Good salary
    * Nice colleagues

    Cons

    * Repetitive work (basically only data entry)
    * No intellectual stimulation
    * Bonus scheme: unreasonable targets based on factors you cannot influence
    * Bad office environment (desks, chars/table, light, airco): open space with too much noise
    * No good training of new employee
    * The 'projects' are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the candidate about what the job function actually is. Let the candidate sit in for half an hour and let people who actually do the job be part of the the interview process.
    Add cubicles or send the noisy people in a different room where the door can be closed!!!
    Don't focus only on sales at the end of the month!! This makes the company 'too young' and 'too dynamic'.
