    Pros

    It's been a treat having a mandate to develop innovative software. Those who get this are stoked. We are talking with customers, reviewing the competitors and delivering cloud based solutions to the market that's ahead of the game. It feels good to be part of something. This company has changed.

    Cons

    Working with some deadheads who just don't get it and moan about how great things were when they could get away with sitting around and playing on Facebook. I wish these losers would just go away instead of trying to spread negative energy. See is some other company would put up with your attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going strong - we're developing things for a global market now - keep pushing.

    Cons

    We have had a lot of changes over the last year or so which presents many challenges. We have lost a lot of good people and historical knowledge during this time of transition, but I’ve noticed that people are coming back and the culture is making a turn in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is key with employees and customers. A little positive reinforcement can go a very long way, so be sure to thank your team members and focus on building a fun, rewarding work environment. Continue to listen to your customers and employees.
