Pros

Symplicity will immediately put you in a position to really learn and grow. You are thrown into situations that require strong work ethic and self-responsibility. At some organizations it takes years to direct sell, so the quick movement is great. It is also a very dynamic company with excellent products. There is also quite a bit of room to make your opinions known, which is amazing to have at such a young age.

Cons

Management is a nightmare to navigate. There is absolutely a culture of micromanagement, which is a four-letter word in this office. Furthermore, there are zero programming and training opportunities. Oftentimes you are not given the tools you need to succeed. Ultimately this is a bunch of 20 year olds training and managing other 20 year olds, which is a huge 'con.'

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please hire a Sales Director. It is unheard of to have a sales organization without a leader. It is not conducive to a healthy, supportive, growth-oriented sales team.

    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My coworkers are bright, innovative and supportive. Strengths are identified and utilized. Feedback is commonly offered. Ethics are emphasized. The company is family friendly. Communication is good. Workload is busy and steady but not overwhelming. Telecommuting offered for some positions.

    Cons

    Benefits are along the lines of peers (small, private tech companies) which means expensive insurance and minimal leave. The trade off for few benefits is pay and work environment.
