I worked at Symplicity Corporation full-time for less than a year
Pros – You can acquire skills that will be beneficial in the future, and will prepare you to find another job. Other than that, it was a huge waste of my time.
Cons – First of all, the president/company is being investigated by the FBI, and customers often bring up the subject.
This company only hires recent college grads, and takes advantage of them by paying them the lowest salary and giving them unrealistic loads of work and expectations.
If you aren't near a metro, you have to pay $8 a day to park.
President has no idea what is going on most of the time.
Management is a joke - micromanaged to the max.
Training does not exist.
Very unprofessional atmosphere - the president and managers are constantly yelling and cursing while everyone in the office overhears them (even when you are on the phone with a customer).
Most of the products are also a joke.
Database not working half of the time - very frustrating.
Overall, this company will make you hate your life 9-6 M-F.
Advice to Senior Management – Where do I start? Hire more managers, be truthful during interviews, stop being cheap and purchase a functioning & reliable database, more communication is definitely needed., establish a training program,

I worked at Symplicity Corporation
Pros – Developers have the option to "upgrade" to working remotely after 2 years in-office. Large bonuses and raises available upon completion of a project.
Cons – Organization is unstructured; there are 2 managers and everyone reports directly to one of them. Managers get into weekly screaming matches. Minimal to no guidance for junior developers. Zero transparency into the business (option to buy stock after 2 years with the company, but no one will give you details on the financials or tell you how many shares there are outstanding).
Advice to Senior Management – If you're going to have screaming matches, at least sound insulate your offices. (Or, better yet, conduct yourselves in a calm and professional manner at all times.) Additionally, provide support (guidance, mentorship) for junior developers that have never worked on large projects by themselves.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
