Pros

The overall spirit of teamwork is good and at times it is great. The owners are good at creating an atmosphere where teachers (our customers) are respected. There is an ethic of going above-and-beyond for science teachers and science education. The founders give back to the community with time and with money. The 401K is terrific. After a number of years they contribute 15% to the 401K and they pay for insurance for employees families. There is an one month sabbatical after ten years of service. Most employees have been there forever.

Cons

No one leaves. Once you're in there is no room for advancement in your career or in pay scale. Sales are way up and profits seem way up, yet raises are still held at 3%.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be fair. Follow your written policies and follow employment laws diligently.

    I worked at Vernier Software & Technology full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Hours were flexible, pay was decent. In fact, they extended my contract with them from 3 months to just over a year. I was a contractor, and they still included me in holiday paid time off! They operated like a big family, and I loved that about them.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything. Leadership was good, tasks were well-written so I knew what to do. Time off when my mother was sick in the hospital...they didn't even blink an eye. There just weren't any cons. I wish I could have stayed on with them permanently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have grown something special here. I appreciate the opportunity extended to me, and wish you the best always.
