I have been working at Litle & Co. full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Pair programming - yes some people complain that it is not for all personalities - if you are humble and willing to learn, you will learn a lot and contribute immensely. You'll be checking in production code in less than a week.

Engineering managers are quite simply the best I have ever worked with. They are extremely good at balancing work/life, assigning priorities and taking engineer goals into account while managing them.

Engineer ownership is extremely high. All engineers will be involved 100% from concept to production for the project they work on and one is able/expected to make product changing suggestions and mission critical decisions.

Flexibility is fantastic. If you are an all star performer and work out logistics with your manager/pair, then nobody will bat an eyelid if u need to leave early to pick up the kids or work an afternoon remotely because you have a delivery.

Great medical benefits - no deductible is unheard of these days.

Cons

Use it or lose it vacation - many managers allow you to privately roll some time over.

The recent acquisition may tighten up some of the flexibility.

Not for everyone - if you cannot work with other people then you will fail fast with pair programming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resist picking up big company bureaucracy that might come along with the acquisition. Try to keep the current top notch medical benefits.

    Pros

    The company really values its employees, more than any other place I've worked. The work/life balance is respected and valued here and that is evident by the smiles in the hallways. Don't get me wrong - hard work is also valued, but if you have family or personal obligations, no one ever blinks an eye. Do your work, get it done, be excellent, and you can work flexible hours and even work from home a day or two a week. Obviously this depends on the department you work in but this is true for most parts of the company. Again, work/life balance highly respected and valued.

    Cons

    The building is a little too 1980's corporate america, but that's about it. Parking is ample, location is pretty good even for those living in or close to the city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People really love bagel Thursdays, great for mixing it up with other departments and personalities, but maybe some other options beyond bagels, like fruit? That's all!

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. Very good non-monetary benefits. The owners really do care about their employees and try to provide an excellent work environment. High degree of understanding that employees have a life outside of work. Good company, no layoffs or downsizing through 2009 and 2010.

    Cons

    Salary could be better. Accountability sometimes lacking. Too many silos, there's isn't an operations department coordinating effort.
