    Pros

    Great compensation. Great teamwork. Awesome building

    Cons

    As the company grew and they started hiring these high level people that had come from other companies that they had messed up. They came in and wanted to change a well working machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Glad they sold to a company that can take the great products to the next level

    Teach your recruiters to speak better English or hire people in the US and not India.

    Pros

    Money is reasonably good but not great. Vacation is better than average. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Career advancement is tough. It's who you know not how good you are that will get you a promotion. Accomplishments are rarely acknowledged.

    Pros

    Radiant is a large company with a small company mentality. Not a lot of structure for individual jobs - you'll love it if you like freedom to make improvements where you see fit, you'll hate it if you need a lot of structure and direction.

    Cons

    Very hard to promote within this company. Leadership is a very tight knit group, and like many other companies, it's who you know more than what you do that gets you promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuously seek out opportunities to make Radiant the best place to work - not just strive to be on par with other companies.

    Pros

    Time off is good, not tons of overtime is required. Direct management is willing to be flexible with work schedule. Some working from home is allowed.

    Cons

    Salary is low after working there for many years, but that may be common for other places as well too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees up to market on their salaries, even if they have been with the company for years. Deadlines should have developer input before being set.

    Pros

    Always challenging
    Never boring
    Most ideas are considered
    Management tries to fit the best person for the job when promoting

    Cons

    The downside of the above happens when you get a little seniority and the guy who just stepped in the door is promoted ahead of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more transparent in your promotions.
    How are employees supposed to know what to strive for if we don't know why people are chosen for projects, promotions, etc
