Pros

    Ditto to "immature, failing company" review

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsBeer cart on Fridays, easy to maintain a work/life balance, awesome company parties, gained a lot of friends who feel the same way I do

    ConsPoor management. I second everything said by the "immature, failing company" review. Also disappointed that we were asked by our CEO and managers to give positive ratings on Best Places to Work every year instead of addressing how we really felt.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to be managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great at first, but too many changes equal an unstable atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ConsNot transparent in real company issues, "every man for himself" mentality, Chinese acquirement has caused negative changes, less than appealing salary

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Cool company that is still in transition

    Business Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe culture is still laid back. And for the most part you are treated like an adult.

    ConsDo to their incomplete transition with their merger the company has little room for spin up or time to let individuals develop. I was laid off after 3 short months!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
