    I have been working at Flatirons Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the consulting group, you have the opportunity to use new and interesting technologies. In the last couple years, I have learned a lot and gotten to use some really cool new frameworks and technologies. The company is marketed as a solutions company, and for the consulting group, this is certainly accurate. It is great to be on a team that finds a cool solution to an interesting problem.

    Cons

    On the flip side of consulting, you can also get unlucky when joining a project that uses technology that you don't like or is ancient or just plain awful. Clients often have deals with large software houses like EMC that bring in business, but that means that we have to use those products, even if we know they aren't the best tool for the solution. People can often get stuck on these kinds of awful projects for a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation can be more competitive. Even in years when the company doesn't do so well, employees should still be rewarded for good work. More perks would be a good compromise when compensation can't be improved each year.

    I have been working at Flatirons Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a software engineer, you are pretty much independent. There is no micro-management going so that's a plus. There's plenty of time-off available. High opportunities for traveling to customer sites nationally and internationally.

    Cons

    The company has historically been reorganizing several times each year. There is an incorrect balance of engineers versus business people causing a ton of overhead on business positions (project managers) and an overload of work on the engineers. The pay is significantly below the average based on companies near by (bottom 10%).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve compensation, specially for employees exceeding expectations. Hire more engineers instead of project managers, after all it is a software engineering company.
