I have been working at Accretive Technology full-time (more than an year)

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.

    Pros

    — A lot of fun to work at. Freedom to pursue interesting technical challenges.
    — Great Work from home policy.
    — Very Dog Friendly.
    — Some pretty amazing benefits (22 days of vacation/PTO, 8 holidays), great (paid-for) medical plan, 50% 401k matching, Profit-sharing bonuses, bus pass, gym membership, etc.
    — No dev burnout!
    — Awesome industry to work in.
    — Career advancement is encouraged, and good work is recognized.

    Cons

    — Very Political. Middle management heavy.
    — Base Salaries (for junior engineers) are 10-20% below the mean.
    — Long vesting schedules on everything. Bonuses take ~2yrs to become a meaningful portion of your take-home pay.
    — No transparency when it comes to business metrics. Very few have any idea how the business is doing. Hard to feel personally invested when you’re not sure how your performance affects the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    — Lower the bar on your vesting schedules, and/or increase the pay for lower tier employees. Also, The ratio of Senior/juniors engineers is very high.
    — Embrace new technologies (with healthy skepticism).
    — Reduce the bureaucracy involved when adopting new Technologies/Methodologies.
    — Tell the employee’s about how the Business actually operates/performs. What are the gross margins? What is the cash flow? What is our customer retention (and how has it changed over time) ? What is the overhead? What are your plans for the future? Telling us these things may help us feel more invested in the company.

    Pros

    Good people in general to work with, very friendly and laid back overall.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of inter departmental collaboration or interaction so there was a bit of ambiguity when walking past other employees. I was not the biggest fan of the sites that were supported by the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach and promote growth of the employee rather than have them be task driven positions.
