Pros

Basically, it's the people. Red Gate is full of smart, decent and generous people who are good at their jobs and a pleasure to work with. The usual gripes about offices ("Why is that useless so-and-so a manager?") just aren't here, and the company makes a massive effort to communicate well and involve everyone in what we're doing.

Cons

Erm, can't really think of anything - I have to fill 20 words minimum here but all I can think of is that it could be a bit greener. It took too long to get the recycling bins sorted out ;-)

Advice to Management

Carry on

    Pros

    Free lunch, laidback day-to-day atmosphere, company days and dinners out for stuff.

    Cons

    Everything stalls at middle management, it's impossible to get anything done. Your experience is totally dependent on whether your manager/team is willing to stand up for you. There is a LOT of dead weight in the employee pool.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to each other talk about how great the company is and listen to your rank-and-file employees.
