A growing company still striking a balance between cowboy coding and regimented process.

Pros

The pay and benefits are very competitive, higher than similar uncleared positions in more expensive Denver.

Cons

Not enough investment in formal training. Only a few hot shots or executives ever get to go to conferences. There used to be "brown bag" presentations but those had attendance issues because some projects wouldn't allow an hour a week to be billed to those internal training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in training. Send some developers to NFJS when it comes to Denver (it happens twice a year). Bring back brown bags, and end the billing sillyness with attendance.

    Pros

    The benefits package is impressive. The work environment is casual, with t-shirts and jeans being the norm. Middle, and upper middle management is attainable, and those in these positions are typically very accessible, and often knowledgeable about the demands put upon those they supervise. Compensation is competitive, and often above the industry standard. This company want's to treat its employees right.

    Cons

    Technological support within the company is poorly managed. Although compensation and benefits are top notch, financial management is often confusing and amateurish. There is verbal support for personal growth, but little in the way of resources. The customer base is too narrow, and the primary customer is not compatible other customer types. This has lead to a stagnation in the technology used, and this leads to technological employee skill stagnation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify customers. Analyze what the company does from an abstract standpoint, and streamline some new, very small, product offerings. Diversified customers and products will lead to diversified technology, which will lead to greater research, which will lead to innovation.
    Take a close look at top level financial management of the corporation.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, the pay is on the high end, great benefits

    Cons

    Good 'ol boy system when it comes to promotions and who's in charge, too much politics, and upper management not equipped to make most decisions
