Good work-life balance, intense work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bloomington, MN

Pros- Voted top med-size work place last year, and I definitely agree
- Weekly happy hours - Fridays at 4:30
- Very open, respectful, and supportive culture
- Really good about recognizing people
- Filled with really smart people
- Lots of career opportunities since it is growing extremely fast (doubling in size & revenue every year for past few years)

Cons- You need to be 110% while you are at work
- Very fast paced and can be stressful (so although you can work a typical 40 hour week, you might be thinking about it after you leave)
- Developers & PMs need to keep their timesheet accurate to within 15 mins
- Growing pains given the breakneck growth

Advice to Senior Management- Allow more time for people to improve themselves and their projects
- More team-building activities

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
