Pros

Great, flexible hours, very casual dress (more than shorts, t-shirt & sandals for the guys is a little overdressed), working with talented and intelligent people.

Cons

The management team widely derided internally as toxic to the company's long term prospects has just been promoted. Rumors abound of huge layoffs, and developers are openly discussing the job prospects they hope to interview for.

Advice to Management

Please take your golden parachutes and move on before you destroy the company.

    Pros

    Great focus on giving back to the community and challenging yourself both in work and physically with company races and events.

    Cons

    ACTIVE has high turnover and with that, comes lots of regular change. Expectations change often so at times you are working towards a moving target.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a vision based upon meaningful metrics, communicate that vision and allow some time to pass before making changes in focus or objectives.
