    Pros

    Good coffee and morning snacks.

    Cons

    Expect to work ALL the time. No career advancement. Tons of favoritism. Everyone is always stressed and negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you truly want your employees to be successful, check in more, be involved, and actually manage. Don't just make someone a manager either because they've been there for awhile. Do it because they actually know how to manage and motivate a team. Celebrate successes rather than always being demanding and only pointing out what goes wrong.

    Pros

    The company open and transparent about our performance, strives to provide healthy activities (fitness challenges, gym memberships, standing desks, free bikes to ride around as we feel like it, ping pong), and the work is challenging and fun.

    Cons

    There haven't been a whole lot of cons, honestly.

    I have been working at Decipher full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I've learned a lot working at Decipher, everyone is really open to helping you and you never feel afraid to answer questions. I think, if you want, it isn't hard to move up in the company, so there's definitely room to grow. The company operates very much like Google with lots of fun perks like a foosball table, ping pong room, company sponsored activities, post work happy hours!

    Cons

    It can get a little monotonous sometimes because you're doing the same thing everyday and it can also get very stressful when there's tight timelines and not enough available people to work on projects. Due to the stress level, I do think the compensation is very low and not very competitive with other firms. There seems to be a lot of turnover in the company and the low pay coupled with the high stress levels may be why it's so frequent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While people are friendly, there are definitely some people in the company who believe they are higher up in the chain of command than others and that's simply untrue. It is important for the managers in every department to stress that without all departments working together and efficiently, the company would be screwed!

    I have been working at Decipher full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's easy to get in Decipher especially for recent graduates since no experience is required.

    Cons

    The first 6 months were fun as you learn many new things. After that, you'll realize that the job is boring. Not much of a career. Promise things like matching 401k that never happen. Lousy bonus structure which based on company goal. It's perfectly fine if the management do not propose extremely high goal. Haven't gotten bonus for several years since the company never meet their goal. Last but not least, the salary compensation is very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you advertising the company is mobile-focused, then you should provide the employees the mean to test in these mobile devices. 1 mobile device for 100 employees is not an ideal ratio.

    Pros

    The advancement available has been great and moving up in the company is done so easily once proven abilities and opportunities are available. Breakfast is provided daily, company activity days, bring dogs to work, family events, casual clothes.

    Cons

    Can be a high stressed job due to the nature of survey errors. Everyone is human, and even though every survey goes through QA, sometimes things are missed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would appreciate more transparency when making strategic company moves and business decisions.
