    Pros

    Beverages, snacks and nice meeting rooms

    Cons

    No process development orientation is given. They make tests but you don't get a formal orientation on what they expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't assume all developers have work on a team environment. Training is valuable for solo developers to be integrated as part of a team.

    Pros

    work life balance is good
    company sponsored party is fine
    My manager is awesome. This is top bottom so its a great trend set by the CEO

    Cons

    compensation isn't even on par with Houston standards
    no clear career path for QE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better standards for career path and better compensation will get you better people.Clean up people who don't add value anymore instead of retaining them to work from home. I see not so great employees retaining their jobs in this division. This will mean you are underpaying creative prospects and colleagues.

    Pros

    Good pay
    Free snacks and beverages
    Lots of company event
    Flexible hours, work from home

    Cons

    Not very good at documenting their processes. This makes it difficult to train new people and follow through with improvements.
    Teams don't communicate well. Many simply don't have a good grasp on where their responsibilities end and begin.
    Don't like the work area, very noisy. No cubical, just desks facing one another separated by a low shelf.

    Pros

    Great peers to work with, smart, dependable, friendly. Working here you are able to get involved in many different projects for diverse customers and industries, and acquire lots of experience.

    Cons

    While decisions from the C-level execs make sense, the middle "senior" management people that has come in the recent years does not really seem to get it. They are putting in jeopardy the results-oriented customer-focused culture that made this company great in the first two decades. They don't seem to really know how to execute the vision and are leaving people frustrated in their path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the organic growth, avoid wasted resources, watch for inefficiencies not just add more layers of people hoping this will take the company to the next level, do retrospectives after decisions.

    Pros

    Good tech team. Flexible hours. Smart developers.

    Cons

    A few people control the company and over rules anything that they dont agree. Most managers would not survive in any other decent company. Managers who dont kiss up are taken out or put into other departments or groups.
    Most of the promotions are based on politics and who can kiss up more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO is good but too much controlling. Has a few selected people put in each department who are used to run the show.
    Sad that this company has middle and senior management with full of people with no managerial skills. Every other person is a VP or director.
