Pros

Everyone I encountered at REI was interested in the job and eager to learn.

Cons

Developers were all new to the technologies they were marketed as being experts in.

Advice to Management

Contribute more to the open source technologies that your developers are using.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, friendly colleagues, fair benefits. The top executives care about the employees but lately there has been a disconnect.

    Cons

    lack of planning, unrealistic and uneven task assignments, too much work, stress. Sometimes feel like learning nothing new and working exactly same things.
    Managers see-saw between being caring to mean and are overly focused on budget without focusing on proper planning and work allocation and lack the ability to motivate and utilize resources.
    Technology is outdated and people who claim to know newer technologies seldom do.
    Employees expected to work late nights and weekends frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Growing sense of insecurity distrust in some employees needs to be addressed, now. Too much negative micro management. Need to encourage employees to learn newer technologies. Work life balance needs to be improved.
