I have been working at Plex Systems, Inc.

Pros

--Software company where development is the largest department. This benefits developers because they have a larger voice and also implementation and sales because there are more resources available to enchance product than at many software companies.

--Bureaucracy is kept to a minimum.

--Career path is limited only by individual's desire and willingness to work for what they want. New opportunities go to person best for them, not necessarily who has been with the company the longest.

--Employees are treated as individuals, not cogs in a machine.

Cons

--Demand for our product and services is so high that it is straining resources at times.
--As company grows, it's harder and harder to know everyone. But growth is better than the alternative, for sure.

    Pros

    - Relaxed, informal work environment with individual offices for everyone.
    - Competitive salary and plenty of room for advancement
    - Highly profitable product
    - Cutting edge MSSQL database--every Plex developer also ends up being a DBA in some capacity

    Cons

    - Onboarding process is lengthy due to the immensity of the product.
    - Everyone has to spend time maintaining some old code.
    - Everyone has to put out fires occasionally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mostly, keep doing what you're doing. Make sure that Plex remains a meritocracy.

    I have been working at Plex Systems, Inc.

    Pros

    Good learning place, good for new graduate who don't care about work/life balancing. However they are getting strict and it's hard to for new graduate to get in.

    Cons

    - Long work hours. You are expected to work more than 45+ hours without overtime pay.
    - Big turnover. People end up getting laid off due to certain number of reasons, or resigning after learning enough to find a better job. That's why the company seems hiring forever.
    - No respect from management. Employee feeling more like working machine than respected individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employee and stop forcing them to work long hours, so you don't have to spend most of your time to hire new people for lost talent.
