Pros

Remilon offers some unique perks and opportunities:

* The company itself is doing very well and is constantly growing / expanding
* Happy hour on fridays, drink cart on Thursdays, fully stocked kitchen
* Most fridays you can work on whatever you want
* (Most) coworkers are very smart, very motivated people that are easy to work with
* You have the choice on what projects you want to work on
* You get to work on new and exciting technologies
* Competitive salary and benefits
* Still has that startup feel without the startup worries.

Unlike many other companies, Remilon lacks a lot of red tape and welcomes new ideas to make things run more smoothly.

Cons

Not really a con, but Remilon is for smart, hard-working people who like working with other, similar people. For newbies, you will need to work very hard to get up to speed quickly, or you will likely drown.

The company is still young, and there's still a ways to go with regards to infrastructure and processes (qa, working from home, team management, etc.).

The workforce at Remilon is also very young (many straight out of college). At time there can be a distinct lack of maturity and social graces.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management feels "disconnected" from the rest of the company. They will bark ideas and values from above, but they do not take the time to really connect with their employees and convince them to get on board. My manager rarely provides feedback or guidance, and what feedback is given can sometimes feel rushed and/or contrived.

    I worked at Remilon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Remilon attracts a lot of intelligent, driven individuals, many straight out of college. They are generally wonderful to work and interact with. There are also Wednesday catered lunches, and Friday happy hours. About once a quarter there is a weekend outing such as bowling, bocce ball or picnics. There is also a wide variety of work, and everyone wears many hats. Sometimes even literally.

    Cons

    No one in the senior management cares about your opinion, or experience. It is really a "worker bee" mentality, where you have to just do what you're told, or else you're being "difficult."

    Another huge factor is that Remilon pays well below market value, largely taking advantage of the college kids who are naive and just happy to have gotten a job. With that said, there is really no room for advancement, and no time to grow skills. The only way to succeed at Remilon is to be buddies with senior management, or the HR department, as office favoritism is rampant. A point of concern was always job security. There is extremely high turn over, between people moving on, and frequent firings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the core values is Respect, and employees rarely feel that receive any. ideas were tossed aside, and concerns are never heard. There is such a huge divide between upper management and the employees, which is ridiculous in such a small company. The closed door attitude of Remilon is extremely hostile, hurts morale, and stops the company from excelling.

    I have been working at Remilon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Because Remilon is a small company (with a small number of employees), everyone is able to do many things and participate in tons of cross-functional work. I have never felt limited in my position and if anything feel compelled to constantly challenge what I am working on to find new and innovative ways to do things. Remilon also works very hard to create a positive working environment which includes tons of employee perks (great pay, competitive bonus plan, happy hour, stocked kitchen, team event sponsorship, awesome employee gear, etc). Another great thing about working at Remilon is the people. When I have to go to work for most of my day, I would prefer to be surrounded by people that I enjoy, look up to and appreciate -- you really get all of those things here.

    Cons

    Small company means more limited resources (not in terms of cash), but in terms of headcount. The company really pride themselves on hiring exceptional talent, which is great, but definitely takes longer to find new additions to the teams. The openings are there to hire people, just finding the right people is a challenge.
