    I have been working at Decision Toolbox full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many employees, including myself, are engaged in a freelance-like relationship. That means I can say yes or no to any project, set my own schedule, take a vacation whenever I want. I have TONS of flexibility in balancing different parts of my life; for example, I am able to volunteer in my son's classroom. At the same time, they offer benefits, including a generous profit-sharing plan.

    DT's leadership does not treat me as an employee, but as a partner, and I often have opportunities to brainstorm with others, including senior leaders, on resolving issues or special projects. The creativity is palpable.

    Leadership is truly committed to doing the right thing, including providing tools as well as support and kudos -- they never fail to recognize my successes. If I see an issue, I feel comfortable bringing it to leadership and they make a genuine effort to resolve it.

    Working from home probably isn't for everyone, but it is way cool for me.

    Cons

    In a freelance-type relationship, you have to bear a good deal of the responsibility for your own success. I get paid by the project and, when business is slow, there isn't a lot of money (when it is slow, it is because of the economy, not because of DT's lack of business development efforts). You also have to reach out if you have a problem or need support -- you need to be an entrepreneur. Personally I like this kind of situation, but if you're not somewhat assertive, it may be frustrating for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company grows, the unique and wonderful culture is susceptible. Continue to protect that culture diligently and cultivate it lovingly.
