The Technology is Fun. The CTO & Technical Leadership do not exist.

I have been working at Thermopylae Sciences & Technology full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The software can provide some really interesting projects. There are some great engineers and the work life balance is good. There are fun parties and good activities. The Benefits are very nice. It could be a GREAT place to be if you didn't have to compensate for some really bad employees.

Cons

Salary lower than what you can make elsewhere. There is no career path for tech, and the company does not have a CTO. Government work tends to come with people who are meat in a seat. TST definitely has some of that. There are some terribly bad people who don't work (game, screw things up, pass work off on others) but stay employed because of magic.

Advice to Management

You have to let people who do not contribute go. It doesn't matter if they were in the service, or an old friend. It breeds and atmosphere of nepotism and then moral tanks and then those who are not in the buddy club stop pulling the dead weight.

    Pros

    Great staff, generous salary and benefits, and laid-back corporate culture.

    Cons

    The company is primed to branch out to other business areas but I'm not sure all employees are on the same page as to what the way-ahead ought to be.


  2. Great work environment, but company is about to go under.

    I worked at Thermopylae Sciences & Technology full-time

    Pros

    -Casual work environment. -Flexible hours. -Ability to work from home anytime. -Smart coworkers.

    Cons

    Despite the great work environment, I have noticed several signs that point to the company going out of business in the next year. -In the past two years, over 50% of employees have left. This includes people in roles previously critical to the company being laid off. -When a key employee left, another employee often took over their position, and a replacement was not hired. -The company is currently bleeding cash, and ot doesn't look like the company will find a stable source of income to cover expenses anytime soon. -Management has started cutting expenses such as free snacks and corporate social events. -Employee morale has declined significantly.

    Advice to Management

    - Have more company social events to boost morale. -Find a way to get acquired because your company cannot survive as an independent entity.
