    I worked at Cedaron full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, pay was received the 15th and last day of every month. Small company, so you do end up knowing everyone that works in the office.
    The benefits are decent, you receive health, dental, vision as well as a company sponsored IRA with up to 1% matching.
    The company holds several employee focused events such as outings, holiday parties, etc every year.
    Fancy coffee machine with decent coffee, though I don't think Lavazza is as good as some of the roasts you can buy.
    Work was diverse, I picked up tons of new skills, improved existing ones. As an engineer I did development, support, training, and deployment. I was never a phone guy, but this job got me over the anxiety of talking to another human on the phone.
    Pay, you really have to negotiate this well in the beginning, or prove your value to the company then request a raise, then start making plans to work elsewhere.

    Cons

    Diverse workload is a double edged sword. Being interrupted to perform support in the middle of development is both frustrating and annoying. Trying to make up for lost support time by working later/starting earlier became a theme for me.
    Upper management will skip the "chain of command" frequently. Having directions from your supervisor be overridden by the CEO is equally confusing and annoying.
    Stressful work environment, when the workload starts catching up to you. When you start, they try to keep you confined to your role, but eventually once you start taking support calls- game over.
    High turn overrate- from my time there the company had gone through about 25 people in various roles. As in 25 people no longer work there for a company of under 20 employees.
    Favoritism/Honeymoon period. This is a real thing at this company. All new employees are happy to start and impressed with the work, but once you've wronged upper management, your days are filled with dread.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to run a modern software company like a mom and pop shop. Engineering isn't moving boxes all day, and the dev team tries it's hardest to stay on time and deliver a great product.
    The employees are not trying to sabotage the company, the number one goal for a normal employees is to make the customers happy and continue making the company money.
    Appreciate your employees. The company events are a nice gesture, but real appreciation would remove the stress and tension from the work place.
    Improve employee retention, 6-8months does not help the company remain fluid. The downtime incurred to train a new person is detrimental to delivering a good software.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Cedaron in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Seemed good and professional, that was the demo, not a good company at all. Total joke of leadership and management. I am shocked the company has survived. Evident of recent past Sales experts, but currently in a downward spiral.

    Negotiation Details
    Fast, I should have known.
