Pros

This is a good startup company with very good benefits. It has a very strong management which keeps the promises to employees. It provided attractive bonuses for a job well done. Provides better team events compared to bigger companies.

Cons

There are limited options for growing in this company and also the compensation is bellow the competition. They don't have a clear job titles separation and career paths in the company. Only a few employee trainings provided.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide a better career path for employees to grow in the company. Recruit a few key people with very good technical skills and compensate them accordingly.

    Pros

    The REI Systems story began with a few bright, young friends who decided to start their own business in the 1980s. By 2011, their headcount was 400+. Their story is one of success through hard work and careful growth. Many of REI Systems employees have crossed an ocean to have a chance at such a dream. They come from India, Pakistan, Poland, Turkey, Africa, Japan, and China just to name a few. In 2011 REI Systems employee population comprised of 25+ nationalities. The diversity is celebrated with multicultural events, such as the International pot luck. REI Systems also recruits young talent from universities both within and outside the D.C. Metro Area. There is a culture that encourages learning and striving for personal and professional excellence. Many employees take part in after work activities such as running clubs and team sports. There is always a tremendous show of support whenever there is a fundraiser for disaster aid, a blood drive, or when a fellow employee in a time of need. REI Systems has a warmth and energy that is hard to find in many other IT companies. I believe this is the reason why so many employees stay with REI Systems, and why some familiar faces return.

    Cons

    I do not have cons to write about.
