I have been working at REI Systems full-time (more than a year)

Pros

People are friendly, Very relaxed on hours, Quarterly events to raise moral

Cons

Unrealistic deadlines with constant changes, very difficult to debug company standard platform

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drop a few projects. Quit expanding. Learn to fix the scaffolding at the bottom of the building before trying to go higher, otherwise the fall will be much greater. Pay more attention to the developers and less to the customer.

    I have been working at REI Systems

    Pros

    - Competitive pay
    - Excellent benefits package (401k, health, life insurance, stock options, training, tuition reimbursement, etc.)
    - Very diverse company (experience and cultural)
    - Commitment to hire productive and talented workforce.
    - Competent colleagues, supervisors, and top executives.
    - Very friendly work environment, which also includes top management.
    - Just moved into a new building (looks amazing).
    - Defined career paths/opportunities for advancement.
    - Open to ideas and suggestions on ways to improve current processes.

    Cons

    - The PTO accrual rate can be increased a bit.
    - No real other items to discuss. I see some people working late hours, but they don’t seem to resent the idea. I think they enjoy their jobs and it shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get to meet the CEO and other top executives during orientation, that's a very good impression on new hires. Please sustain this company culture and don't turn into a money-hungry corporation as your numbers grow, the company culture will cease to attract employees if you turn to the dark side :)
