I worked at REI Systems full-time for less than a year

Pros

Nice facility with some very knowledgeable technical team members who are helpful. You can learn a lot while you are here. Very hands on.

Cons

Their salaries are well below industry average. I head people left got raises of 20K + in other companies when they left. I experienced this myself when I left the company. There are fewer americans and the companies has a lot of bound labor on visas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at REI Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has some good contracts. Senior management of the company is good and cares about the company. The facility is also nice.

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism in the company. Be prepared for long working hours. Its a sweatshop. There is no process or order. Everything is emergency. Managers are non social and least interested in the employees. They get stressed very easily and then stress the hell out of everybody. They work like dictators.

    I worked at REI Systems as a contractor for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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