I have been working at SilkRoad Technology

Pros

Flexible work hours, Love the ability to work from anywhere, Really fun brand to promote and market, Easy going and mostly stress free

Cons

Very few complaints worth noting other than no 401K matching. Have worked places with better benefits and better salary

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I do notice silos between teams so it would be nice if upper management would make a greater effort to bring everyone together to feel like the family that we are.

    I have been working at SilkRoad Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being able to utilize flex time and working from home make working here very appealing. The "unlimited" PTO makes for planning trips easier and less stressful.

    Cons

    There are no other real benefits and, actually using your PTO is a little difficult as there is always an enormous abundance of work and every person is always bogged down. The pay is sub par and there has been a wage freeze for over three years, making it more and more difficult for people to stay with this company. There has been a few management shake ups but nothing has really changed other than them spending money on frivolous things such as branding and getting 3rd party mockups of our applications instead of paying their workers to do their job and create an integrated suite of applications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they're worth and they will stop leaving.

    Pros

    Flexible PTO, interesting work, good manager. Starting to see a direction for the product suite. Some of the long term plans are encouraging.

    Cons

    Raises are rare, regardless of performance or promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If raises are not an option due to budgetary concerns, find alternative ways to take care of long term employees who believe in this company. Stock options?
