    I worked at Incredible Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Business is run like a family - Management treats the employees (for the most part) like family so there's opportunity to get the individual attention you may need as an employee. They tend to be more understanding and patient with employees than other companies, sometimes to a fault.

    Perks - Benefits are great (health, dental, 401k matches, etc), casual work environment (almost to an extreme), flexible work hours, laid back work environment, decent vacation/sick allowances, ability to work from home when needed depending on job type.

    The people - Most employees are easy going, fun to work with, and a joy to hang out with. Employees here tend to become close friends and form bonds that extend outside of the workplace, something that doesn't happen at most companies.

    Cons

    Business is run like a family - Because management treats the employees like family it means that there are favorites, and that even people who are bringing departments down and not doing their jobs properly continued to be employed. Decisions aren't always made based on performance or skills and this really holds the company back.

    No room for personal growth - In both the job descriptions and during interviews, management will tell you how much potential there is to grow and develop. They'll even go as far as to make promises of projects and responsibilities you'll grow into the longer you're with them. But in 80% of the company it eventually becomes pretty clear that there is no room for individual growth. The position/level you are hired at is where you will stay, despite what they tell you. There are few promotions and even fewer recognitions of good work. Most of the recognition happens at an upper management level, as they take credit for what their departments do. This is not a place to work for if you want to grow and develop your own career.

    Close mindedness - The management will tell you they want your ideas, and they want to constantly improve, but the truth is they are very much stuck in their ways. Innovations and creative endeavors are kept to a minimum because that's not how it has been done in the past. If you have a different way of thinking they will constantly push back on you. This can make for great challenges but lead to a feeling of constant defeat when your feedback falls of deaf ears.

    Very frugal - Don't expect to work with the latest technology, hardware or software. Upgrades are often delayed until the very last minute for both computers and software packages. Even if it can be justified as a means to do your job, it will wait until they absolutely have to. The frugality of the company also means below average salaries, limited raises and pathetic cost of living adjustments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management tries to be transparent with their employees, and tries to make employees feel as if they have a say in the direction the company is going. This is not the case though, so my advice would be to stop making promises you'll never deliver on. Consider taking a step back and making the changes that need to be made even if they are "hard decisions". Start recognizing all employees for their accomplishments, and not the same few who seem to get credit for everything. Help those good employees you do have to grow and develop by giving them the opportunities to do so.
