    I worked at OpenMarket full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company, friendly people mostly, some social activities but limited to a group of people and their interests.

    Cons

    Lots of changes, recently many old people left after a mass exodus a few years back. New management at least in London very much have selfish agendas, not focusing on company growth or it's employees. There is a lot of technical debt and unnecessary work because of poor management policies. Development managers are mostly helpless as no clear direction is given. Most of time it is either fire fighting or just discussing about new feature but not doing it. Management tries to reduce the cost by employing people at cheaper locations like Mexico & India without thinking through the pros & cons. Low morale and people stick around just for convenience sake or being lazy. Management follows bad policies to fix issues rather than facing and dealing with issues.

    Advice to Management

    Stopping fooling your employees and get it right; value your people not your directors.
