    Pros

    Everyone I work with is smart, engaged, and interested in doing high quality work. My day to day experience is fun and full of laughs. I am learning faster and more deeply than ever before in my career. I am grateful for having found Asynchrony. The combination of work environment, people, and benefits add up to the best job I've ever had.

    Cons

    If you are averse to charting your own course you probably won't thrive here. Teams are responsible for choosing the tools and methods we use. It means we have a great deal of control over the development process. With that control comes an expectation of serious consideration and thorough examination of options.

    Advice to Management

    Please do everything you can to maintain the culture you've built. There is exciting growth that will provide new clients and resources. As long as that growth doesn't undermine the unique environment you've created I expect to spend a long, long time here learning and building.

    Pros

    This is my second career change and fourth company I have worked at in 12 years. I have found my niche and love the people I work with and the exciting vibe of an Agile work environment. Very cool office space and view of the Arch, Busch Stadium and Cardinal fans arriving for a game.

    Cons

    Have to think very hard to identify what is not to like. Continuous learning....no that is a plus. Pair programming with developers who share knowledge and force you to do better....no that is a plus.

    Pros

    The values of the company are great, strong emphasis on quality work, and exercising discipline to have a powerful agile process. The open communication that happens between teams and colleagues is great. The leadership in the company seems humble, yet confident. The projects were all so interesting.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't great. If confrontation is something you avoid or are not very comfortable with at times you may have difficulty.

    Pros

    Good location of the office, very spacious and great decor

    Cons

    If you are a Type A personality, then please feel free to apply here. Management allows belittiling of employs amoung co-workers, and if you are of Type A personality and are in their good ol boys club, then no repercussions will be had. It really makes you wonder if the employer even cares about each person even though they are a 'small company'

    Advice to Management

    Stop this mentality! Even though you might get good workers, it hurts the morale of the company and the workers that have to deal with this.

    Pros

    They value work/life balance, pay well, great benefits, nurturing environment to grow professionally. It's more like a family of coworkers that trust each other.

    Cons

    I have yet to find one... If I had to pick one thing I'd like to change it would be a full week off for the week of Christmas.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the culture you've created at all cost.
