    Good office technology, good fun place to work.
    You can make a difference here, willing to try new ideas
    Transitioning from start up culture into well run mid sized firm. Not too bureaucratic.


    Location in Central Reading seems a strange choice. However, next to the station so not too bad.

    Reliance on one software solution. May need to diversify to reduce dependency risk.

    Advice to Management

    As you grow avoid building unnecessary bureaucracy. EMC is the example of how not to grow.
