I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time

Pros

Friendly co-workers, good working environment, exciting atmosphere and culture. Have a number of events for employees such as softball team, symp snacks, happy hours etc...With the exception of compensation Symplicity does treat their employees well and you will definitely meet some friends for life!

Cons

Way underpaid for the amount of work you do especially for being headquartered in a city with one of the highest cost of livings in the US. Also constantly micromanaged. There is little room for growth in terms of upward movement in your career. Also the company has recently expanded more rapidly than it should have causing resources to be stretched thin and therefore causing some products to suffer from lack up development time and market research.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your employees. Also do not expand so rapidly. There should not be a release of a product when you are not in a position to dedicate enough development time to back it up and make updates when necessary. This is just setting products up to fail in the long run.

    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation

    Pros

    * Management and supervisors who care about their employees
    * Small company with opportunities to make a real difference
    * Casual but hard-working company culture
    * Open communication from bottom up
    * Above-average raises and bonuses

    Cons

    Some growing pains as the company has tripled in size, resulting in ghettoized product lines with inconsistent and sometimes haphazard interoffice communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more long term and encompassing rather than being immediately reactive to a single complaint or suggestion.
