    Great place to work right here in our home town

    User Experience Designer (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsFlexibility for professional staff. Not a punch-the-clock type of place. Personal freedom for defining the work and the future of it, and career growth potential. Culture that actively removes barriers to getting things done. Amazing customers, and a sales leadership that has scored some really big deals. A chance to make a difference in the world instead of selling stuff that people do not need (or want). Company that likely has a long future and has shrugged off acquisitions. Great products with growth potential. Leadership that is judicious, personable, and thoughtful.

    ConsRecent focus on security and securing technical operations means forward movement in product development has slowed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun like a start-up; stable like a blue-chip.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsAs a technologist I love the diverse set of challenges we face and our willingness to try new things. Intelligent risk-taking is encouraged, and it has resulted in a platform built on exciting technologies that still has plenty of room for growth.

    As an employee I love the stability. Do a great job and you will be rewarded and given room to flourish. I have never had cause for concern about turnover or work-life balance. We work hard but we work smart, and we believe in maintaining a sustainable pace.

    There are a ton of really bright people working here; there is something to learn (and someone to learn from) everywhere you look, and always someone willing to teach. But be ready - the classroom can be anywhere from pair programming at your desk to a chat over a beer in the breakroom.

    ConsOur niche is hard to explain. We have a great value proposition and a strong, loyal client base; but explaining to a friend exactly what we do sometimes elicits a blank stare.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay laser-focused on what we do best.

    Great place to work and grow!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's a growing company and things move fast, which is part of the allure of a company like this. Your work will have an visible impact and the chances of being lost in the shuffle are rare. There is a lot to do so you're never bored.

    ConsSo much to do, so little time. It can become a bit overwhelming at times, but that is really what makes it so exciting at the same time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep moving forward, stay consistent in message and direction.

    Great culture, great people, at a company that is doing great work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou will be hard pressed to find a company with more smart, hard-working, engaged employees. For those interested, there is lots of opportunity to learn and grow. The company truly values its employees and it is evident: great benefits, the flexibility to balance work & life, the trust to work independently, support to receive the training needed to be more effective in your job, lots of little extras like happy hours, free soda/snacks, family friendly events, and more!

    ConsYou will be expected to work hard with a focus on results. This environment is not a fit for everyone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing so the company continues to grow!

    Respected, Valued, and Challenged at a Young and Fast-Growing Company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsCompetitive salaries and benefits, great company culture, unique make up of employees, beautiful location and office space. Kind and intelligent people work here. Management is instructive, challenging, compassionate, and appreciative.

    ConsMust be a self-starter to make headway (not necessarily a con, but important to note), wide range of ages and backgrounds means you must be able to navigate a variety of unique people to succeed (again, not necessarily a con, but something to consider).

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue growth and continue encouraging communication with all employees from the top all the way to the bottom. Display long term plan to help employees aim in the right direction and align with their personal long term strategies.

    Best kept Secret in the Twin Cities

    Chief Operating Officer (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsGreat success with Gov in USA and NW Europe....strong engineering and marketing....recent focus on sales is paying off. Customer service is very strong.

    ConsToo few people know about the company or its footprint. With over 500 customers including some of the most significant federal organizations, the company should move from the "best kept secret" to "look at us"

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrive for simplicity

    Fast growing company with excellent team

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsMission driven and innovative company where everyone is expected to work hard and make a contribution. Very focused on delivering value for clients. Pays good bonuses and regularly promotes from within. Work life balance is reasonable for a fast growing company.

    ConsThis is a company where everyone expects colleagues to get their work done and make a contribution. It is not a good place for anyone looking to coast. Most roles require that people are online and getting work done off hours during the busy times of year or when a bunch of new clients come on at once.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to support innovation while building processes of a larger company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
