    Pros

    The company is relatively small, and so naturally you will be able to develop closer relationships with the rest of your company. You get to express your ideas pretty freely, the manager I worked with was very open about how I wanted to solve a particular issue and took my words seriously.

    Cons

    The code they work with is poorly documented, and so you will be spending a lot of time trying to figure out what the last guy was doing in all parts of the code.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Good for starting out

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, dress casual. Company is expanding, so there are promotion opportunities. Work from home/telecommuting are options. Free coffee/tea, and continental breakfasts twice a week are nice perks. Will pay tuition for job-related coursework taken while an employee.

    Cons

    Shift work - pulling early mornings, weekends, holidays can wear people out. If you're looking to eventually work outside of marine weather routing, then there's limited skill transfer, since most work is done on the internal software system. Work can become monotonous. Pay's not that great. Employee training can be harsh and degrading (in the wrong hands).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enroll your training staff in some interpersonal skill-building classes. Discourage the "us vs. them" mentality that happens between offices. Do not treat junior staff as disposable, or else you risk losing them to a competitor.

    Pros

    Most everyone gets along in the office, relaxed atmosphere. 3 weeks paid vacation, plus 2 weeks of holiday time is a nice perk, increases to 4 weeks pto after 3 years. Breakfast is provided for the office on Tuesday and Thursdays.

    Cons

    Very rough first few months. Communication is an issue between offices, and there are plenty of bugs within our self maintained system. Raises and bonuses are harder to come by. Shipping industry isn't booming so the company is expected to do more for the same pay.
