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

    Flexible work schedule, telecommuting, positive work environment, encouragement/acceptance for new ideas, given a lot of creative freedom, given the ability to take ownership of tasks, and all of the employees are very co-operative.

    Cons

    With so may projects happening at the same time, deadlines can be fairly tight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more development/testing time for certain projects. Continue with the level of fantastic management.
