    A great and innovative company to work for with a positive outlook.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsYou get to to work on a lot of the latest technologies.
    Executives are very easy to talk to even as far up as the CEO.
    The culture is becoming more employee focused, with new facility upgrades and more numerous employee events.

    ConsCan be very unsatisfying if you are working on one of the "forgotten" products with very few customers.
    A few managers do not seem to care about their reports. Thankfully there are less of these as time goes by.
    Compensation can be very inconsistent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on continuing to improve the culture and making it more fun for employees. It will help build a family that will work together much more effectively.

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

    A great place to work!

    Product Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe autonomy is excellent. I'm free to work beyond my job description in areas that interest me. I also enjoy the travel!

    ConsSometimes the autonomy is a little too free. There are cases where more guidance would be useful.

    Good place to work, but still way behind in Software Engineering practices.

    Software Developer (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsSome managers have different control/management styles and at the same time some teams have very tight timelines, so if you extremely unlucky and fall on a team that has those two characteristics, work-life balance can be hard to achieve. Otherwise, as long as you work for 8 hours, you're fine. Working from home or even working remotely is possible once you've built trust and demonstrated to be a valuable asset.

    ConsAs a software development shop, they still have a lot to learn from the industry. Some (or most) of the tools and technology they use is past their prime. Don't expect to be able to suddenly start changing the tools and practices radically.

    That being said, I left shortly after the new, young CEO was named, and a lot of things were changing quickly, so it could be possible that the development process will change soon too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWatch out for bosses who micro-manage. On one occasion a manager confessed to me that he was spying on me.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
