    Pros

    Very smart developers, great opportunities for career advancement, interesting work

    Cons

    Consilience is a growing company, so at times your workload is higher than it would be in a similar job at a larger company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, Consilience continues to be a great place to work year after year

    Pros

    If you're looking for a job right out of college, the pay will probably be decent.

    Cons

    The President lives by a "shut up, you have a job now get back to work" mentality, does not seem to value his employees and micro-manages. He's made jokes about firing employees before, because apparently it was "funny". Junior to senior employees are underpaid by around 20-30% from market value - because of this there's a high level of mediocrity in the development staff. Low salaries coupled with the fact that they are using a fairly archaic stack, leaves little incentive for engineers looking for a challenge to join. They've recently been purchased by Xerox and from what I understand the employees that have stuck around are having their benefits slashed. Most of the original employees left before the acquisition and after hearing about how those that have stayed are being taken care of, I don't blame them for not sticking around.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employees. You may be cashing out, but they are the reason you are where you are now.
