    I have been working at Dante full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dante's central product -- the Allegory Platform -- is used by a variety of businesses, large and small. When you work at Dante, you are constantly challenged to understand new business domains. The thrill of seeing a customer's storefront (and other supporting business processes) come to life in Allegory makes the hard work worth it.

    Cons

    Working under tight deadlines to deliver new features into the Allegory platform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a small number of priorities and deliver.

    Pros

    We're working on the latest's technologies with very cool projects. There is no seniority, so you can take on more and more responsibilities and move into different jobs.

    Cons

    The expectations are very high of the employees -- not a con for many folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With so many new customers, it be good to know whats taking place across the company. So better communications

    I have been working at Dante full-time

    Pros

    Dante is a great company to work for because they focus on quality people. Everyone that I have worked with here is knowledgable, helpful, and most importantly, fun. As a whole, it is clear that Dante values its people because of the great benefits they provide (not to mention the flexible schedules). Gaining more responsibilities and moving up in the company is entirely based on how driven you are and where you want to be in your career. It's a refreshing feeling after spending some time at a much larger corporation to be able to get out of my comfort zone and work on some cool things.

    The company is divided into teams, which works out great because you can rely on one another. There isn't a lot of micromanagement. The structure of the company is flat, and often the CEO stops by to talk about progress, plans, or conversation. The company truly follows the "fail fast" mind set, encouraging experiments and different ways of doing things. Most things don't require miles and miles of paperwork, just a heads up to those who might be affected.

    Cons

    The location of the office could be more convenient (a little closer to metro, or in an more urban center), as parking can be difficult (this isn't to say it is in a *bad* spot, but it could be better).

    There is little by way of training, but I expected this coming from a large company. I prefer to be engaged in this manner, so it didn't bother me in the least. Lots of cool stuff to explore is how I look at it.

    Work-life balance can be challenging. Sometimes I feel like I should be working 24-hr's a day. This is more indicative of the fact that there is a lot of work to do and not of company policy.

    Other than these three things, there really isn't much to write here. I've loved my time at Dante.

    Pros

    The small, flat organization encourages everyone to step up and drive the company's success. Fantastic camaraderie, constant change to improve products and processes. Great mix of employees with varied experience, age and talents. Truly an Agile environment.

    Cons

    Some can find constant change a challenge.. but, hey, it's software, if it's not changing, it's old news. It would be nice to have more paid time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for the great vision and opportunities!
