I have been working at Rational Retention full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good pay, good location, good benefits, fun perks (monthly after-work bar tab), friendly and reliable core group of employees who stay as everybody around them leaves or is fired.

Cons

Management and developers are always at loggerheads, very dysfunctional. Employees are always quitting or being fired, new developers are always being hired... there's little job security.

    I worked at Rational Retention full-time

    Pros

    They have a strong technical team and products that are interesting and challenging to work on from a technical point of view. It's a small company, so it's actually possible to work on the full stack. Staff are dedicated, friendly, and very informal. It's a typical, small-company environment, so expect a lot of chances to work on different kinds of projects, to have contact with clients, and to take the initiative to get things done.

    Cons

    The pace of work can be intense and juggling the various, sometimes unrelated, projects can be stressful. That said, the level of stress is similar to other startup companies of the same size.

    I worked at Rational Retention full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on the position, you have the ability to learn a ton and expand your skill set.
    Bagel Thursdays were pretty awesome.
    Current CTO is very personable about issues and does what he can to keep people happy.
    Easy to get to know everyone there (only 50 or so employees)

    Cons

    Long term planning needed work.
    IT Infrastructure was approaching limits and needed some investment (work in progress last i knew)
    Communication of major decisions could be hasty and last minute, making for a stressful time when new deadlines were suddenly fast approaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Theres a ton of very smart people under the roof there. Keep them happy and working on what they were intended to work on, don't spread them too thin, and there is a bright future for growth.
