I have been working at WillowTree full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Compared to other organizations I have been a part of, WillowTree Apps is really unique. The DRI (Directly Responsible Individual) system and overall environment is different and sets the company apart from others. The level of teamwork and the company culture is truly amazing... you are trusted to get your work done and take care of things without being micromanaged.

Cons

Not really any cons... the DRI system can be stressful at first (everyone from designers to developers manage and interact with clients) but I have come to like it a lot.

    No room for advancement and pressure to deliver on time ahead of budget means ultra long hours.

    Pros

    Working on cutting edge technology/apps, pipeline of work is non-stop

    Cons

    Lack of PMs means you spend more time interacting with clients directly than getting code delivered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less red tape, better compensation/bonus package, less PM with clients

    Many of these areas are being addressed right now.

    Designers and developers are encouraged to decide if they want to act in a DRI role or not. If they do, DRI training is now being implemented
