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

Pros

Working from home is a great convenience factor. I love talking to clients and helping them work through problems or develop a new work flow. My opinions and suggestions are always taken into consideration either for new client features or changes to staff work flow. There are great benefits and management is flexible should you need to temporarily adjust your work schedule.

Cons

Working from home presents challenges. Work social connections are all online or over the phone. It can be difficult for some personalities to not see people throughout the work day. The other challenge is the office is in your home and it can be difficult to limit your work to the hours and days scheduled. I often work on weekends to get ahead or work on an issue (addicted to solving puzzles).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clients are charged for onsite trainings. The staff member who covers them should be monetarily rewarded as well as they may fall behind in work and have to work extra hours to catch up.

    Pros

    Great benefits, telecommuting is encouraged, and lots of creative flexibility.

    Cons

    Cubicles are a bit dull at first, typical office work environment can be chafing for some used to the hustle and bustle of freelancing or a startup.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More off-hours activities!

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Organized and timely promotions and salary review process. Management cares about keeping employees happy and working in a good environment -- this includes up to date hardware and software and good support from IT and HR.

    Cons

    The main web application for internal project management is dated and complicated. Communications are sometimes scattered across Email, IM and this management app making it difficult to properly understand where a project is at and what has been discussed when working with many people on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to consolidate all the different methods of project management and tracking (Manager, supportwiki, and other "loose leaf" requirements docs) into one system with all the tools necessary.
