    I have been working at Denim Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are many positive qualities that differentiate the company from others I have worked for in the past. Some of these qualities include: -Strong strategic planning which helps sustain long-term growth of the company. -A willingness to invest in employee professional growth. -Flexible work schedules which help maintain a good work/life balance. -A relaxed company culture with notable community involvement. -An involved leadership team that engages employees and listens to feedback so that the company can overcome any challenge that arises. -A culture built on trust.

    Cons

    It is tough to be in the fast-paced consulting industry and be 100 perfect. With growth comes challenges like establishing or updating policies, processes, and procedures. If you are an individual who absolutely needs these to function, you may be disappointed in operations. Things do get better if you can deal with the challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employee feedback, and take calculated risks. This is really paying off. Denim Group is definitely a great place work with top talent who wants to see Denim Group continue to be successful.

    Pros

    The ability to have your input heard is one of the biggest positives of this job. The compensation is more than fair, the benefits are great, and the people are fun.

    Cons

    Being a smaller company means that sometimes things are a bit disorganized, but it is part of the growing pains of an up and coming business.

    I have been working at Denim Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Accessible and responsive leadership. Challenging environment. Top talent to learn from and work with. Education programs for developers. 401k matching. Great Insurance. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    The challenging environment isn't for everyone. You need to be willing and capable of learning new technologies, driven to perform at a very high level, and interested in the latest security practices in software development. Really need to be interested in team leadership and client interaction to progress here.

    I have been working at Denim Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work in the Austin branch of this company. Unlike the typical software company start-ups in Austin, this company feels more substantial and the work we do is really important to customers, which I feel good about. You get to work with really smart, funny, helpful people. Management definitely understands that everyone has a life outside of work. They also give you plenty of autonomy and trust employees to get the job done (read:no micro-management), and there are opportunities for mobility when you demonstrate your abilities. Benefits are good (free for the individual employee and employer -matching 401k), the atmosphere is fun and you learn a ton from your colleagues. The free snacks and coffee are a pretty awesome perk, as well.

    Cons

    You figure a lot of things out on your own, which for my personality is great, but others might like more direction.

    I have been working at Denim Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to move around between web dev, security, and app dev Awesome people to work with Relaxed environment and dress code Awesome place to get a well rounded resume

    Cons

    If you show initiative, a lot becomes expected of you without the pay increase to match Management is completely okay with the high turn over rate because it keeps them from paying more for experienced and reliable people

    I have been working at Denim Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The schedules are flexible and they will work with you when things come up in your personal life. They have a solid understanding that everyone has a life outside of work, which is great. Some of the benefits are friendly employees, no out of pocket cost to the basic health insurance plan, free snack stash, laid back work environment, monthly social events along with competitive pay.

    Cons

    I am not sure if this applies to every role but I feel like work related expectations, standards, policies and procedures could be made more clear.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more direction

    I worked at Denim Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual Dress code (Jeans) Flexible Schedule Good coworkers Company activities Good work-life balance Fun atmosphere Food truck most days of the week Moving to new building (summer of 2014) New technologies

    Cons

    Can get stuck in a repetitive Role Teams scattered throughout building Teams are left to solve their own problems with minimal direction from managers Coworkers eat really stinky food at their desk (the smell lingers for hours)

    Advice to Management

    Provide more feedback to employees (meet every 6 months instead of yearly), seat people according to project assignment

    I have been working at Denim Group full-time

    Pros

    Great camaraderie and collaboration, fun monthly events, and good pay. A lot of opportunity for growth, and I feel like my questions and ideas are heard.

    Cons

    Monthly meetings provide a lot of information about the future of the company, and I would like more of that. The company provides snacks, but sometimes they aren't the healthiest!
