I worked at Simpleview Inc. full-time (More than a year)
Benefits package is good, even if compensation is less so. Employees are competent and (for the most part) easy to get along with. Snacks!
First, some operating philosophy...Simpleview applies a rigid "closed structure" approach to just about everything they do. If you aren't management at Simpleview, you are a trained monkey. Work at Simpleview is copy/paste, and not necessarily because it is maximally effective or optimal, but because it minimizes investment and reduces time and cost. That...and trained monkeys can do it. It reminded me of the attitude of many of my superiors while I was in service to our military. That is not a compliment. There also isn't much room for advancement. Despite their attempts to come off as "big time", they are still a small company servicing an industry (mostly CVB) with little growth potential and that is victim to the whims of the taxpayer or bureaucrat. During my two years at Simpleview, I watched a handful of educated, qualified employees who had been there 4-5+ years with get passed over for a minor advancement to an outside hire straight out of college (and by college I mean the University of Arizona, of course). While we are on the subject, fitting in at Simpleview means either graduating from the U of A, having a high interest in golf, or having a high self-awareness of your trained monkeyhood. Male 'shareholders' also seem hesitant to get rid of female employees due to perceived sexism. In one department alone, two female employees were guilty of multiple terminable offenses including public shouting matches and inappropriate language. Simpleview operates out of one big open office packed with pods...so everyone in every department heard these altercations. Not long before I left the company, a highly-skilled male employee in the same department was let go for "rubbing people the wrong way". When I asked what people he had rubbed the wrong way, I was told it was the aforementioned two female employees...who were both still employed when I gave notice. Simpleview is not a bad company, just not a particularly good one either. It's fine for anyone looking to pad their resume for a year or two, but despite what they will tell you regarding advancement, compensation increases, and boundless opportunity, this does not reflect the reality of the company. The shareholders (essentially the company founders and senior management -- though this term is used in the offices as if invoking the Wizard of Oz) are selling a false bill of goods to potential employees. Simpleview drinking game? Take a shot whenever someone says "shareholders".
Advice to Management
If your philosophy works for you, don't change a thing. Just don't expect employee loyalty or low turnover either.
