I have been working at BigMachines full-time for more than a year

Pros

You learn a LOT
You are working with very intelligent people who know what they are doing and are always willing to help you out if you need it
The culture is great, with a very open door policy

Cons

The company is up and coming and that means that there is always a lot of work to do and can lead to long hours
The company is located in Deerfield,not Chicago. But it is right off the Metra line, so that's nice

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Acknowledge to talent that your people have and reward them for it with advancement in the company

    I worked at BigMachines full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Strong Cultural beliefs, values training, and fringe benefits like Friday lunches and Friday happy hours are nice as well.

    Cons

    Layers of new management.
    Compensation/Benefits need to increase since HQ is in Deerfield, IL, not Chicago downtown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better, more open communication

    I worked at BigMachines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Don't know. It used to be great, and I would sing its praises whenever I could. Being an early employee, my career grew exponentially thanks to the opportunities I had at BigMachines. If you worked hard and proved yourself, the promotions and advancement were limitless. Unfortunately, I don't think it's the same place now as it was then.

    Cons

    I stumbled onto this site looking for something else, and happened to click on the BigMachines profile. Reading the employee reviews and how dissatisfied they are with the current state of BM just makes me happy that I left when I did (several years ago for reasons unrelated to dissatisfaction). I left when the old management regime was still there, and all were well respected, smart, and nice folks. The kind of people that you knew had your back if you needed it, and seemed to really care about employee happiness. It sounds like the new management that was brought in by the Board is just the opposite. That is a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know most of you new people, but it really looks like you need to listen to your employees more.
