    I have been working at Orc Group

    Pros

    Orc is a community of people who care about the software and service they provide, but who care just as much about the people around them. The services team works as hard as anyone I've seen, and the level of competence and experience is satisfying.

    Cons

    At times, information and authority is fragmented... but that seems to be a byproduct of the company's large geographical coverage for a relatively small number of people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mine the organization for information... there is a ton of collective experience, and it friction to its information moving up the chain. Actively seek out everyone's advice, and you may gain some interesting (and rewarding) perspectives.

    Common old company, shiny in the past, with lot of legacy code.

    I have been working at Orc Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free schedule, very wide variety of technologies used, very unusual products (like in-house implementation of Cocoa for Windows)

    Cons

    Bad and slow management, inability to change/use old frameworks and legacy code efficiently. Sticking to very unusual solution (client can run both Windows and Macs) requires very unusual specialists (experienced in both Cocoa and Windows API), same can be said for the backend.
