Current Employee - Software Engineer in Lehi, UT

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

Pros

So much to learn!
Realizes they are behind and are quickly trying to catch up by utilizing better technology.
Challenges employees to do their bes and they reward hard-working employees that strive to do their best.
Lots of talented engineers to learn from.
Management is great and stays out of the way of the engineers.
The engineers (test and development) with the tech writers form autonomous teams that work with product management.

An amazing building with a sweet break room.
Professional (not cheap and flimsy) pool, foosball (Tornado) and ping pong (Killerspin) tables. XBOX, super fancy espresso machine (makes a mean hot chocolate!)
Subsidized cafeteria, Einstein Bagel Fridays (bagels for everyone!), and outstanding company parties.

Cons

A little bit on the low side for salary.
They have a really bizarre nerf policy: must wear company-issued safety glasses and you can only have nerf fights in the break room or an office... Pretty much eliminates spontaneous wars!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Avoid last-minute changes. Prepare and give concrete expectations for the many conferences and presentations that happen throughout the year to avoid last-minute panic and extra work.

    Pros

    SirsiDynix has created an agile software development environment that promotes professionalism and ingenuity through utilizing Scrum and Kanban. The open communication policy and team structure encourages innovation at all levels. The company has formalized a 2-day innovation period after each Sprint for self-organized teams to explore new technologies, code enhancements, or new product lines.
    The direct contact between employees and management eliminates barriers, fosters communication, and establishes a common goal direction. The executive team encourages career growth and advancement.
    The rewards and benefits of working for SirsiDynix have provided on opportunity to develop my skills, gain management experience, and obtain a competitive salary with an aggressive bonus structure. The long-term employment of so many current employees, in excess of 15 years, shows the longevity of opportunity available.

    Cons

    The company believes in the concept of personal responsibility and accomplishment. For those, who have become reliant on tenure and friendship to sustain employment, the goal/accomplishment driven environment is a harsh reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to continue to innovate, be open to change, and promote accomplishment through compensation.
