Pros

Its a great place to get your foot in the door and grow within the company. The culture is a great learning and fun environment. It is a team atmosphere. They are on the cutting edge with new technology. They are laid back with a focus on getting the work done and providing the client with the best services and products.

Cons

It is a growing company, which has its growing pains.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing!

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with great clients
    Good pay and benefits
    Potential to grow and learn new things
    Nice location in Reston near bike path and right next to the future Wiehle metro

    Cons

    Fast growth allows some people to advance quickly; however, there are some who can't keep up and will attempt to let others carry the weight.
    This is basically a site where people who get fired come to complain, but having been here a couple years now I would say if anything the company lets people who are along for the ride hang on for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the communication has gotten better lately. For many people this is their first job so a little extra support would go a long way.

    Pros

    Relaxed work atmosphere
    Generally friendly staff
    Good health and dental, 401k (no real other benefits)
    Nice building, Reston is pretty area
    Despite cons, decent stepping stone, kind of like going to a community college and transferring to a better one if needed
    Work with lots of big clients that you can name drop at other job interviews

    Cons

    Depressingly little to do in Reston area unless you like very overpriced drinking
    No other benefits other than health + dental + 401k. You will not get top of the line hardware unless you are lucky enough to nab a hand me down. You might get free food at the all hands meeting.
    It's all about the money, and you are viewed as nothing more than a means of company profit
    No really, it's all about the money. Corners are cut everywhere from buying software to hardware to employee time spent doing things "right" vs "fast"
    Talented developers and engineers do not stay at Siteworx for very long, because there is no reason for them to stay. None of the managers (even the technical managers) are at a senior level technically, so there are very few people to go to for improving your skillset
    Mainly a Windows Server/.NET shop. If that's your thing, good for you
    Many government / corporate clients = IE6 compatibility for everything required
    No internal standardization, expect to reinvent many wheels. No knowledge sharing, often disorganized. Several headless chicken projects because high turnover rates means people leave without documenting anything. You'll get word of mouth instructions if lucky.
    Expect to not know what anyone else in the company is working on, and for no one to know what you are working on.
    People who have been there the longest are just coasting, have no real interest in expanding their technical abilities, which is part of the reason why Siteworx loses good people so quickly.
    You will not have code reviews, you will not write tests for your code, you will not explore any new technologies. Good practices are overlooked to make deadlines, especially by the longer lasting employees. You may even hack out some Visual Basic if you're lucky.
    Siteworx will try to underpay you as much as possible despite large profit margins. Never accept a first offer they give you.
    No respect for employees, firings are indeed without warning. Personal vendettas are common among employees
    More politics behind the walls than I cared for
    No HR department to grease the wheels, fight your own battles
    Billing department is friendly but often off track, expect errors on pay stubs, wrong vacation day reporting, and unanswered emails. It is inevitable.

    Advice to Management

    Management is obviously aware of high turnover rate but does not seem to do much about it. Get people with strong technical backgrounds leading teams. Give employees more benefits, better hardware. Focus more on company pride, which all but disappears in the trenches of projects.
