    I have been working at Navis LLC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Mid-size company where employees are able to influence decisions. CEO is accessible and approachable. Smart and passionate employees. Beautiful office and location. Nice perks like bagels on Friday and donuts on Wednesday, pot lucks, baseball games, holiday celebrations, etc. Employees work hard, but are able to have a work/life balance.

    Cons

    Because the company is mid-sized, promotional opportunities can be limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue making the culture innovative and fun.

    Very frustrating with a lot of double standards shown towards employees.

    I have been working at Navis LLC

    Pros

    Flexible work from home policy, great location to work, right on the Bart line. Challenging domain with some people with great experience and work ethic. High quality code.

    Cons

    There is a lot of friction and personality clash within the organization. Development is viewed as a cut throat business rather than as teamwork. Employees are expected to perform miracles with the old hardware they have to work with. Only five sick days a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees as having the potential to do the work, do not show favoritism to the "old timers". Foster an atmosphere of mutual respect and clamp down on the people creating an environment of hostility. This is very much demotivating everyone.
