Pros

party house - lots of parties and drinks
work from home when needed
flexible work hours
free pop
free bagels and donuts on Friday

Cons

Being good at politics is very important here. You get promoted not by your talent, but by who is your buddy, friend. You get kicked out if you are not one of them. Management team are really close to each other so that they can screw up anyone they want. If you are social and can talk you will be successful. If you can only do things even you have great talent you are screwed.

Advice to Management

The executive team should be alert about management team. Good management team should not use politics to manage team. Instead they should keep equal distance with everyone.

    Pros

    Other Employees
    Relaxed Dress Code
    Flexible Work hours
    Good Starter job
    Good place to learn the software business
    Growing company

    Cons

    Salary are sub par
    Benefits are not comparable to other companies of similar size in the area
    401K matching is terrible
    Lower management lacks experience
    lack of career development opportunities
    lack of a career path
    lack of personal growth opportunities
    Management likes to play favorites and outcasts

    Advice to Management

    Overall the direction the company is heading as a whole looks good, but there are some serious challenges that the company must undertake in order to transform from a small software shop to a mature public organization. Management would be smart to secure the best talent at the company by reviewing salaries and compensation in all positions. There is a risk of high turn over (mass brain drain) with the talent if the local job market improves!

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere

    Good benefits

    Management supports flexible time/work from home if needed

    Good coworkers for the most part

    Management promotes team atmosphere and respect-- almost weekly team meetings, birthday cookies, holiday gift, and anniversary gift

    Cons

    Supervisory positions are filled by people with tenure, not by qualifications, resulting in sub-par direct management structure

    There is segregation within the department between the "favorites" and the "outcasts"

    No opportunity for career growth/advancement

    Advice to Management

    Utilize SuccessFactors and read employee's manager reviews. If we take the time to review our managers, we expect our review comments will be used to influence performance reviews of our manager. It feels like manager reviews are getting ignored, which gives employees no opportunity to provide real feedback.
