Pros

You know what you are working will have a large contribution to the company and to the overall benefit of our customers. With the new continuous development model we see our impact in as little as 2 weeks from when we developed it.

Cons

The company is growing so quickly and we are constantly trying to make our products better so sometimes the technology might change faster than we know how to adapt to it.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Open to working from home and there are lots of employees who work remotely from home offices 100% of the time.
    Lots of employee "perks" and and fun contests.
    Promote healthy lifestyle with health club discounts, brown bag seminars etc…
    Product is great and getting even better.

    Cons

    1st/2nd level managers are still doing an individual contributor jobs and thus aren't effective leaders or communicators
    A lot of managers seem to be people who have just "been there a long time" not necessarily people who are true leaders. Manager Leadership training would be a huge help here.
    Career path isn't obvious nor discussed.
    PTO lags behind other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer training to your managers so they are more skilled at leading effectively.
