I have been working at Accretive Technology full-time for more than a year

Pros

Privately held, no outside investors to satisfy, hence job security. Unbelievable focus on work-life balance; very transparent and collaborative environment; awesome benefits including profit sharing. Owners are developers, so this is a company driven by technology. Flat management hierarchy - no VP's. Young company in business for 14 years with a mature concept and ever-evolving product. Several hundreds of millions in revenue.

Cons

Too much innovation, not enough contributors. Need more good developers and QA pro's to execute upon ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    14-year old, privately held company, that makes several hundred million dollars per year, so we don't sweat money like other start-ups, nor do we have to answer to a VC BOD. Anything you need to do your job is provided without any debate. The perks are amazing: matching 401k (who still does that!?), very generous and competitive salary, quarterly bonuses with guaranteed minimums, full medical/dental/vision including the co-pay!, paid parking, gym memberships, bus passes. Catered food twice a month. Bagels every Friday. Company events like paintball, golf, picnics, zoo trips. The whole company goes on a fully paid first class vacation to exotic lands with your S.O. every 18 months or so! So many more perks I can't think of...

    Cons

    It feels like they have grown very quickly despite being 14 years old. They have a lot of money, but some of the technology and HR stuff is a little quirky, even compared to other adolescent start-ups. For example, FTE fill out a time-sheet still -- usually a FTE simply fills out a sheet for the days off, not the days worked. We have amazing huge printer/scanner machines that aren't connected to the network?! There is no public LAN share drive? There was no developer email list until recently. Some of the code base is a bit "legacy" and while it's slowly being brought up to speed, it can be frustrating at times to work with.

    Pros

    The health, well-being and happiness of the employees is a top priority. Salaries are competitive and the benefits are excellent: 12 PTO days, 8 holidays and 2 weeks vacation (increases over time). The environment is relaxed and it's easy for the lowest level employee to get feedback to upper management. It's friendly with employees eating and chatting together throughout the day. They are very cognizant of recognizing employees that go the extra mile and will reward hard workers.

    Cons

    Some of the code is a little dated. We're still working with flash and some departments need to support IE6. The company has grown a lot in the last year, so office space has become tighter over time.
