    Pros

    Young company with great potential. Good co-workers with a decent work attitude. They have a foozball table and little things like company provided snacks, drinks, and frequent lunches.

    Cons

    Can be a fast pace and what you are working on can change on a dime based on priorities that come from clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good management with a very flat structure, so we can easily approach the managers with thoughts and concerns. Don't add too many layers as we grow and add more employees and offices.

    I worked at Code Red full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Small, flexibility to do things you'd like to tackle if they fall within the larger goals of the company.
    - Decent benefits.
    - Free drinks and things like foosball and nights out.
    - Using some interesting third party tools in their software.
    - Microsoft shop, able to deal with most challenges with relative ease.

    Cons

    The cons come from the development side. Not the business.

    - The Dev manager Dwight is downright horrible to work under.
    - Long hours for emergency fixes for clients.
    - New clients means more long hours getting them set up and supporting them.
    - If you get on the wrong side of the dev manager (dwight), even accidentally, you will reap his wrath on each and every thing you do.
    - There is an inherent issue with having the Dev manager also be part owner of the company. You can't go to anyone to complain about management issues.
    - No real product vision. No real project manager either. These tasks and the vision falls under the Dev manager and client requests. You can't have any and all clients requests be met. There needs to be push-back to develop the product identity and sometimes have clients work around the product identity instead of creating one-off builds and functionality for each client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stop having the Dev manager also be part owner of the company.

    Positive Outlook
