    I worked at Basis Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some very smart, creative and interesting people in this company. The culture is relatively laid back and there are little perks that are quite nice e.g. providing lunch, the monthly masseuse visit. The technology is interesting and solves some important data related problems.

    Cons

    Not sure where this company is going. At times it felt like a ship without a captain.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what the goal is. Find someone who has achieved that goal for other small companies (preferably multiple times). Hire them. Let them steer the ship.


  3. Good perks, but not a lot of room for growth.

    I worked at Basis Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay and a lot of care for the Engineering departments. Coworkers in the engineering side of the company are bright and friendly.

    Cons

    Managers have a "legacy" mindset and are ultra resistant to change. There is a lot of emphasis on hierarchy, so if you like to have your ideas listened to good luck

    Advice to Management

    Set up a more open structure and listen to your employees.

    I have been working at Basis Technology full-time

    Pros

    Basis is filled with great people. The benefits are good and it's near the T. Some of the work done at Basis is very exciting. Overall it's a good place to work. It's a life-style company meaning that many come to work just for work and are eager to leave.

    Cons

    Basis has been around for awhile but has not seen much growth. The company tends to move slowly. Some of the work done at Basis is not very exciting. It's a life-style company meaning that many come to work just for work and are eager to leave.

    Pros

    Smart people, Interesting technology, good location, free food, opportunity to advance, ability to grow into other positions if you work hard

    Cons

    The environment is a little old fashioned and the business has had its ups and downs but is now doing well so I would not worry about that actually

    Advice to Management

    You are all smart people and continue to take an active interest in your employees and show appreciation for a job well done
