Pros

The problem with large companies as an engineer is that you rarely get a say in what areas of technology you want to explore or learn about. If the company has standardized on Java then you are pretty much hosed. The plus side about working at a smaller company is you get to explore and grow without a large amount of the bureaucracy you'd find at a much larger company.

Dishcrawl tends to adopt a solution first strategy. Python is mostly used but it doesn't mean we frown on PHP. Whatever gets the job done. As with a lot of startups there is a good deal of autonomy with a focus on the end result.

Cons

It is a lot of work. There is an infinite amount of things you can make and picking what direction to go is tough. Like with all code there are bugs and critical ones have to be fixed quickly (even if it is 9pm on a Sunday night).

    Pros

    The concept is beyond great, the training is well thought-out, for a start-up, but could use improvement. Overall, the experience garners experience in many areas of business.

    Cons

    Too many to mention!!! For prospects the most important thing to now is that you are expendable, all your hard work will most likely be for nothing because you will get chewed up and spit out and also that your compensation is minimal, therefore unsustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus in specific target markets to strategize growth.
    Re-think certain aspects of the business model, operations, and management.
    Put your employees first, open and honest communication goes both ways.

    Pros

    They teach you some marketing skills that will provide you some knowledge to take the concept and do it on your own! You'll make more money that way and you won't be someone's slave.

    Cons

    Don't let them fool you. All these 5 star reviews before mine are just a ploy for the company to make themselves look better. The current employees in the home office where probably required to "spin a positive light" to cover up the reality of the sinking ship that is Dishcrawl. They make you work like a dog and do not care one bit about the people outside the Fempire ran office. Now they require everyone to work on commission, what you should do is take the idea and do it yourself. You'll make more money that way and will get the same amount if support which is non from the office staff. They brainwash their employees into thinking they are doing amazing things and require you to really screw restaurants and partners in your community all in the name of making money for Dishcrawl. They don't care who they step on using Non-Profits names to promote events while screwing them out of money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to your employees. Pay better for the amount of work you exspect from your employees. And follow up with the promises you make!
