Pros

An 'A 'list founder, executive team, and intellectual property protecting all products and services. Every one works hard and well together to get the work done.

Cons

As a nimble company we may start something but toss it quickly as we discover a better\different approach. These changes while being understood can be frustrating at times especially when it's your work being scrapped.

Advice to Management

Maintain course!

    Pros

    Onsite training/employee onboard process is very thorough, and the trainers attentive. Generous paid time off (plus benefits package) and friendly/supportive co-workers make for a positive work environment the vast majority of the time. Full time work from home is a huge plus. Long weekend's almost always mean leaving a few hours early (with pay!), which is again a bonus.

    Cons

    Priorities can change overnight and mis-communications can result in several weeks of code being scrapped and/or re-written. Management and QA do not always understand how things should/do work, and it can be frustrating explaining the same thing 3 different ways.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries could use improvement - as a contractor I was receiving a generous $86,000/yr, but when I was hired as a full time employee (and switched from hourly to salaried exempt) it dropped considerably to $72,000/yr.

    Perhaps more forethought into upcoming priorities so time can be efficiently managed (versus changing direction mid project)
