I worked at Austin Lane Technologies

Pros

Small company atmosphere and energy, opportunities for growth.

Cons

Some dishonest and incompetent management.
Focused more on getting tickets closed ASAP instead of taking the time to get the job done right.
Poor communication and lots of finger pointing.
Senior management doesn't take any responsibility.
High employee turnover

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just be honest and do good work.
The office is not an appropriate place to continually offer political opinions. No matter how sincere and deeply held, they end up alienating people, and are always irrelevant to getting work done.

    Stop micro managing your employees and start trusting them to do their best. Command and control style of management doesn't work well in software development.

    I have been working at Austin Lane Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I started off as an intern at Austin Lane while pursuing an engineering degree at the local university. The role rapidly developed into a full-time position.
    Small company that is growing exponentially, is established with a large client base, and has enormous growth opportunities for new hires and interns. Great group of people to work with; everyone knows each other on a first-name basis. You immediately start noticing how vital and important each employee is. Be prepared to make many friends.
    Senior management has worked every position that the company offers and have been in the industry for many years so they know their stuff. They are easily approachable, set realistic goals and standards for everyone, and practice what they preach. There is absolutely no drama or work politics. Senior management takes great care and detail in hiring the right person for the roles and has a talent for recruiting gifted people. They prefer to promote from within the company rather than just get someone to fill a position.
    Company offers team-building, company dinners, and various events throughout the year. Since the company is relatively small, everyone pulls their weight. What everyone does is very transparent and there is nowhere for slackers to hide. Austin Lane keeps expanding and growing so every day there is something to do.
    The development team is given full range and freedom to develop solutions. Interns are given the opportunity to work alongside them to really get to know the software. Development team is always helpful at answering questions or pointing you in the right direction. You’ll learn more about the software development cycle in the first few months than all four years of college.

    Cons

    Small team size with a rapidly increasing client base so when someone is out, everyone is affected.
    Company is getting larger and quickly filling up its offices so office space can be a bit tight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to interns is to apply if you really have the drive to make a career out of it. This is not just another internship to throw on that resume. My advice to management is to keep doing what they’re doing. Keep hiring the right people and keep maintaining the great work ethic, culture, and atmosphere of Austin Lane as it continues to expand.
