Pros

Nice office Fun company events Senior management is very dedicated Very friendly employees, you'll make good friends. Small company atmosphere and energy, opportunities for growth.

Cons

Management pressures you to work overtime on a regular basis. Analyzes where you spend every 15 minutes. Poor communication and lots of finger pointing. Senior management doesn't take any responsibility. High employee turnover in software development.

Advice to Management

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.

    Pros

    Austin Lane has a very unique culture with smart employees that are very dedicated to the company and the product. It's a small company so everyone (even interns) play a vital role in the development process. This is a great place for entry level and intern positions to get the training and experience needed to develop enterprise level solutions. Management notices and rewards hard work and if you're heavily motivated there is definitely opportunity for fast growth here. The President of the company, Austin, is extremely approachable and truly cares about his employees. The entire development team is a close group, if you work here you'll make good friends. The company is growing very quickly and sales are at an all time high. If you're motivated and want to be apart of a winning team this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    There isn't much transparency within the company regarding financials and employees salaries are lower than the industry standard for the corresponding job title. However, the company has been very successful lately so this can likely soon change. The company operates in an old-fashioned way and doesn't partake in some of the more modern business practices, this could drive some employees away but for those that fit the mold this place is great. The internship program is pretty "hands off" which is great for extremely motivated employees but a few interns seem to be lost most the time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talented people as the company expands and continue to invest in ideas and technologies that will keep the product innovative and unique in the industry.

    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 Management

    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.
