    I have been working at Software Advice full-time (more than 3 years)


    It is an amazing work environment and you work with a passionate leadership team. The majority of the employees are young and full of life, and you tend to make friends fast. There is also a growing population of the 30+ crowd that is adding a needed maturity to the workforce. You are challenged daily, and are able to build strong skills for most any profession. The company is one of the few I have found that not only cares about the work, but has a true compassion for the employees and their well being


    The major cons/concerns of the past are going away as the company matures (unresponsive or understaffed management). They are cluing in on better ways to work with their employees, but there is always room for improvement. Some say the working hours are long, but you get to leave your work at the office when you leave and don't have to take it with you - which is a rare thing nowadays. You don't get a lot of time away from the desk during working hours, but part of that is my choice, and the other is due to the nature of the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on developing the culture that you have managed to hold on to, and promoting from within. If you find a candidate for management, nurture them before it is time to take the position so they can have time to build up the tools to make them effective and keep the company strong. Everyone needs mentors no matter their tenure, and even the best should not just be left on autopilot all the time. Keep the open door policy as much as you can to help keep everyone in the loop as it builds trust.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Software Advice.

    Interview Details

    Software Advice is very selective when it comes to hiring and won't just hire to fill a space, but wait until the right person comes along. The whole process took about 2 weeks for me, starting with a couple phone interviews, an in person meeting and a day in the life session. Everyone who handles the hiring at SA is awesome.
