    Pros

    You can work from your homeoffice, you can get a company car, a laptop and a cellphone
    Good products

    Cons

    Not engough space to fill in all the cons in this field, but the most important for me is that they always find a way not to pay or to avoid paying your commission. They chang the conditions on this, on your job title and on your assigned task at any time the like without explantion and communication. NO matter what your contract states the change it to their own discretion. The company has an extrem high employee churn rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be honest, say what you do and do what you say and respect your employees.

    Pros

    Great place to work, helpful staff and management is very supportive of employee development and there are no unnecessary barriers for driven individuals who want to succeed

    Cons

    Not a con but the environment is ever changing within the industry and hence for those not comfortable in a fast paced ever evolving environment things might seem overwhelming

    Pros

    - The people who are not clueless middle and senior managers are fantastic. You can meet friends for life
    - Pension
    - Dentist and health insurance
    - food and drink in the kitchen
    - Huge and varied client base

    Cons

    Where to start!

    Half the managers just want to be managers for the sake of it. Many don't actually do any 'work' and micro managing is something that seems to be promoted.

    A LOT of the VP's have no clue how to manage their teams and create a lot of spreadsheets and documents to make it look like they are working. There is a fear factor that runs through the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember what it was like when you were at the bottom and have compassion. Reward fairly.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, Good reputation

    Cons

    Low pay, high Churn since they wont match industry salaries, new CEO not as good as the old one. A few brilliant people produce the solutions that are keeping the company running, senior executives are just riding the wave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Match salaries and try to keep your people. Stock is doing well and would do better with lower churn. Invest in growing the business in other areas - diversify, otherwise the day some other company comes up with better solutions or government puts stricter privacy regulations, we are done.
