    I have been working at 1901 Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Good interaction and exposure with technically strong peers. Small and growing vendor with strong future potential. Top level management is transparent and communicates goals, is very open and communicates objectives well, has a realistic vision of where they want to go and know how to get there.

    Cons

    Needs stronger technical managers with oversight and interaction down at the project level. Sense of polarity exists due to variety of discrete focuses, current active growth mode and geographic resource or team distribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop focused project teams. Hire strong technical managers.

    Sinking ship, but a decent resume filler

    I worked at 1901 Group full-time

    Pros

    Good on work-life balance, coworkers are good people, free snacks and good health benefits. Managers are accessible.

    Cons

    Everything else, basically. They severely underpay their workers (think 1/3rd of what entry-level usually is for the position), raises were a year behind and then canceled for many employees. Management doesn't manage and uses tools to supplement. They overwork their employees and turnover is incredibly high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, hire more people -- and treat them well so they stay. Never in my years working there did I find someone who didn't complain about working there.
