Cons

Like all web dev, lots of bug fixes. But so is the life of an intern

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

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, smart intelligent people, highly successful in their industry and innovative company looking at how the world works and functions and what the next generation of employees want and need to be successful

    Cons

    They continue to loose their great employees because there is no career path or goals for them to benchmark themselves against; therefore they need to address this immediately or they will continue to loose more top notch employees. In order to be more successful more process needs to be put in place in order to ensure our clients understand what is going on and how we are changing as a business. Clear vision needs to be put in place and clearly articulated out to employees so they see the future path for this growing company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and understand what they are requesting to make them more successful in their position. In the end, with being more open to suggestions and helping carve out a career path for specific individuals, Management will be successful also. Plus you need to start charging for your implementation services, you are loosing money on this transaction and you are no longer a 1 year old company it has been 10 years and you are an industry leader; therefore get a move on changing the costing model.

    Pros

    Free food and casual dress are nice, as are the perks along the way.

    Cons

    This is the place where all standard modes of operation you've previously experienced mean nothing. If you've passed the screening and intense interview cycles and they make you an offer, think long and hard before accepting. If your intent is to work hard at playing politics, then accept the offer. However, if your intent is to work hard and focus on output instead of playing 'the game', then take a pass.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the self-serving 'leaders' and practice what you preach.
