Pros

Nice cubicles and lots of free coffee. Generally fun people to work with. Hands on with allot of really exciting technology.

Cons

Poor management skills, poor time tracking skills. No clear set of expectations which often leads to conflicts with personal time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop running your medium sized company like a small business. Get in touch with your employees and treat your engineers like you treat your sales. You would have nothing to sell without your engineers.

    I worked at Secure-24

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn new technologies and skills, a youthful energetic atmosphere, and an endless supply of work to be done.

    Cons

    The pay leaves a lot to be desired (or at least it did when I was there). Additionally the culture has all but disappeared during the company's explosive growth. Employees are now just numbers and are being offered up to customers as sacrifice firings to make up for the lack of accountability and incompetencies by management. The sales team jokes about how the engineers will just keep putting up with the nonsense due to the lack of jobs in the Detroit area. It's really quite sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is merely a shell of what it once was. Stop hiring drones and chaining them to a desk, focus on the type of charisma and endless desire for knowledge that allowed the company to grow so explosively.

    I have been working at Secure-24 full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Outstanding fringe benefits, decent sense of employee camaraderie, extremely flexible work hours. As long as you clear it with your supervisor in advance, for most employees it's relatively easy to come in later (10ish) on some mornings, or bank a few extra hours M-Th to leave early on a Friday. The Internet is wide open for use, and you'll find many employees listening to Pandora, reading the news, checking scores and stocks, etc. during business hours. The key element is all of this, of course, is that work still gets done.

    Cons

    Communication between departments is often poor. The company grows at such a rapid pace that it's often difficult to keep up with the latest initiatives, even if you have a close working relationship with your director. Some directors will fiercely defend and shield their departments, occasionally to the detriment of company progress. If your position is "non-technical", forget about getting much respect from anyone other than your supervisor. Salaries are below industry average for most positions (though this is somewhat mitigated by the company paying 100% of healthcare premiums). Some promotions have been based more on longevity/seniority than on suitability for management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you've finally made the local "101 Best & Brightest" list doesn't mean there isn't room for continued improvement in some areas.
