Pros

1. Lots of opportunity
2. Great people to work with (it's nice to work with smart people)
3. Nice work environment - feels modern, great perks and other fun stuff

Cons

1. The company is big enough now that a person's experience will depend heavily on his/her particular manager and department. There are a few managers that don't reflect the company's culture and need to go.
2. The pace is fast - can feel hectic. That is not for everyone.

    Pros

    I've found Benefitfocus to live up to everything I was introduced to while being vetted for the job. I was told upfront what was required, what the values of the company were and what the job description was - all accurate. The pay is right on. I do what I love to do and there is creative room for growth. The people are extraordinary as far as kindness, being optomistic and hard working. The environment is open and energetic - occasionally a party atmosphere pervades when some buiness activity closes or software goes live. I'm sure a book will be written about this company as a case study for doing it right.

    Cons

    There are some personalities you have to just work araound. Engineers are a fickle bunch anyway. Some who have been here for a long time think they are the keepers of the BF way when they are just in the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never stop learning about people. The larger BF gets the more concern should be taken over managers becoming more popele oriented.

    -No processes in place
    -Not enough staff or support for the volume of business coming in
    -Some decisions are unethical-- being told to lie to clients
    -Mangers throwing their team members under the bus due to their lack of action

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your teams are telling you! If you are overwhelmed and under-staffed, then do something about it.
