    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany should compensate some portion of the parking for their employees. This will definitely make employees happy. Vacation plan should be change. Employee should be allow to carry at least 5 days for their Vacation every year for two years.

    Symplicity is a cutting-edge company, providing great products to clients and creating a dynamic work environment.

    Client Relationship Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsWhen you work for Symplicity, it becomes clear very quickly that you are working for a dynamic and evolving organization. There are lots of conversations about updates and enhancements, and creativity is highly encouraged to create the best possible client experience. Being a part of this is exciting and inspiring!

    One of the things I enjoy about Symplicity is the flexibility to work from a location outside of the home office alongside the commitment of the company to creating a strong team even though many members may not be working on-site in Arlington. I think this allows Symplicity to draw from the very best candidate pool across the nation. There is a lot of effort made to help employees get to know each other as members of the same team and I think it shows in the work we do and the service we provide.

    Symplicity is an organization that invites and welcomes ideas and suggestions from people across the organization; the company is responsive to questions, ideas and needs. The people who work for Symplicity are truly invested in and a part of the growth of the company.

    ConsAny areas in which I would have expressed a concern about my experience have been addressed by Symplicity in ways that have truly enhanced my experience as an employee and team member.

    A great balance of corporate job security and creative freedom

    Designer (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

    ProsGreat benefits, telecommuting is encouraged, and lots of creative flexibility.

    ConsCubicles are a bit dull at first, typical office work environment can be chafing for some used to the hustle and bustle of freelancing or a startup.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore off-hours activities!

    I feel valued and engaged as an employee of Symplicity.

    Product Support Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsMy coworkers are bright, innovative and supportive. Strengths are identified and utilized. Feedback is commonly offered. Ethics are emphasized. The company is family friendly. Communication is good. Workload is busy and steady but not overwhelming. Telecommuting offered for some positions.

    ConsBenefits are along the lines of peers (small, private tech companies) which means expensive insurance and minimal leave. The trade off for few benefits is pay and work environment.

    Front End Web Developer (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

    ProsFlexible work schedule, telecommuting, positive work environment, encouragement/acceptance for new ideas, given a lot of creative freedom, given the ability to take ownership of tasks, and all of the employees are very co-operative.

    ConsWith so may projects happening at the same time, deadlines can be fairly tight.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more development/testing time for certain projects. Continue with the level of fantastic management.

    The benefits far outweigh the negatives.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

    Pros* Management and supervisors who care about their employees
    * Small company with opportunities to make a real difference
    * Casual but hard-working company culture
    * Open communication from bottom up
    * Above-average raises and bonuses

    ConsSome growing pains as the company has tripled in size, resulting in ghettoized product lines with inconsistent and sometimes haphazard interoffice communication.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink more long term and encompassing rather than being immediately reactive to a single complaint or suggestion.

    Always getting better

    Software Developer (Current Employee)

    ProsFreedom in trying new technologies and approaches, no rigid hierarchy, flexible schedule, telecommuting, great pay and benefits.

    ConsNot really a "con" but you do need to know your stuff and learn quickly, work some extra hours, and stay around for a while for all the benefits to kick in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep looking for ways to improve processes, work environment, and benefits.
