Current Employee - Software Engineer  in  Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Software Engineer in Chicago, IL

Pros

This is a company is great. It is one of the best places to work in Chicago. It's got a small company feel. You can go into the CEO's office and have a normal conversation about anything without worry. Everyone is open and relaxed but hard working as well. This company also provides everyone with the tools they need to do their jobs. Devs have brand new 12 core machines with 32GB of RAM and 30 inch monitors. Everyone gets an iPad when they start. There's also fruit deliveries twice a week, happy hour every month and an atmosphere that is fun and enjoyable. You also get 18 days off, including sick days, but what's great is you don't have to use your sick days when you're sick. You can also sell back hours for extra paycheck or move it to the next year. And we get the whole week from Christmas to New Years off!

Cons

You are required to work 9 hour days with an hour lunch in between. It's not very flexible with hours. The work itself isn't the most exciting, it is litigation software after all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work! Maybe think about implementing flex-hours??

    Pros

    Great people, CEO was a developer so understands developers. Lots of social events and upper management is approachable.

    Cons

    CEO is stubborn and tends to fire anyone who opposes him too often. Employees get paid less than at other similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit firing people or forcing them to leave. Pay people what their worth.
