Pros

- the people are great, the kind you want to spend time with outside of work
- the projects and clients are top notch, Fortune 500 companies
- the challenges are immense and complicated, allowing for complex problem solving
- management listens to all employees and there's a full open door policy - no bureaucracy
- salaries are at industry levels or make up for it in responsibility - not many companies can say that
- 3 offices in the US and international presence presents travel opportunities

Cons

- UI and development are separate groups and disciplines - should not be treated as such

    Pros

    There are some seriously good, smart people who work here. Optaros has a very strong User Experience team that works very well with the Technology team.

    Cons

    The sales team needs to work tighter with the delivery team. The company might be doing more in the eCommerce space, but the company also has a background in system integration. That's normally a good way to get a foot in the door for new customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the strongest reasons people stay in the company is due to the culture and the work being done. Keep it strong. Keep it interesting.

    I have been working at Optaros

    Pros

    sink-or-swim mentality mixed with healthy doses of support. tremendously fun culture, a small company vibe with the opportunity to work with the top of the Fortune 500. They value talent, smarts, creativity, development of skills. Interesting, challenging work. Encourage writing exceptional code. Client facing work came quickly to me, as a young person I can't think of anywhere I'd rather work in Austin.

    Cons

    Projects can start to get redundant (nature of the sales process) - may be on the same technologies for a while unless you push pretty hard to move on to something else. Communication from home base in Boston to the Austin office is sometimes a little difficult
