    Pros

    - People are genuinely collaborative and caring
    - Some great products
    - A clear technical strategy

    Cons

    - The clear technical strategy is unreachable without a significant investment in additional technical staff
    - Little consideration given for work/life balance
    - Very low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reign in the strategy of acquisition, or factor into it the need to increase the sales + technical resources needed turn acquisitions into successful revenue generators without neglecting the existing portfolio of products.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
