I have been working at SHYFT Analytics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good client opportunities Small company size allows you to contribute immediately Decent work-life balance A few good people scattered here and there in the company Generally everyone is very nice Lots of informal company outings, after work happy hours

Cons

Internal processes are typical of a small sized company. Processes are not always clearly defined and sometimes chaotic. No training opportunities Favoritism with double standards and highly political environment - infighting, backstabbing, sycophants Promotions given to those who think the same way management does Incompetent managers are there because they play the game or have been there for a long time, not because they are subject matter experts. The organic nature of the company's growth has resulted in very poor management. They have little, if any, experience outside of Trinity. Coupled with the extremely strong personality/management style (not leadership) of the VP's, the overall managerial stance is passive-aggressive toward employees.The end-result is a group of emasculated managers who will make false, lofty promises, say whatever it takes to avoid conflict with employees while capitulating to irrational directions handed down from the top.

Advice to Management

Have an eye for bad management behavior and do something to get rid of people who are self-serving, dictatorial, and promote a disrespectful atmosphere toward employees. Pay attention to the lowest levels of the company who go unheard.

    Pros

    Benefits, compensation, work-life balance, and ability to contribute meaningful work from day one due to small company size. Interesting, committed co-workers and beers after work helped take the edge off pressure situations.

    Cons

    The company grew from a small group of people around a conference table to a medium-sized operations split over two floors of a office building. The core team became the management team and that transition didn't appear to go smoothly. As a result, the management team is a clique that is secretive and you're never quite sure what is going on with the company or whether you could ever become a member of the club or advance within the firm. Also, some of the managers became de-facto management as a result of being there at the beginning, despite the lack of managerial (or people) skills.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more managers from the outside to dilute the clique.

    Pros

    *The company is currently seeing a lot of demand for our products and services which provides a significant amount of growth potential. Employees can get promoted quickly and reach managerial and executive levels faster than if they work in traditional firms *Multiple high value wins within large pharma and emerging biotechnology companies against very well respected companies is creating a lot of buzz within the industry *Improved operating model and a focus on hiring is evening out episodic working hours *Working environment is very entrepreneur, teams are constantly working together to improve the product with little bureaucracy

    Cons

    *Still need to add a lot of additional employees and skills to keep up with demand
