Pros

Company is doing well, a leader in its particular business sector.

Cons

Two houses: product and client services

Product: Nice team, but work is rather unchallenging. Looking for a nice/safe job, great place. Looking for challenging technical problems or new development - look elsewhere.

Client services: Not many are held accountable for anything, except that of the developer. QA and management have a pass on missing specifications and everything is dumped/blamed on the engineer and hence hi turnover in such positions. Development is non-existent and is now a support organization. Management is now trying to spin motivational slogans into performance reviews. The way some developers are treated borderline on abuse.

    Pros

    Employees are really cool to work with.
    Work from home if you want to.
    Everyone, including the senior management, is laid back and the work load isn't that bad.

    Cons

    Lots of politics within the senior management.
    Contractors are not given a full time position even after your performance is exceptional. I saw a lot of contractors being underpaid and let go after a short amount of time.
    The company is not really organized and is all over the place.
    Its a good place to work for a few months but you cant set any career goals at this company.
    The food in the kitchen sucks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the politics!

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, taking family into great consideration.

    Vacation includes 2 weeks, also get the week between Christmas and New Years off.

    Environment is nice. People are friendly and knowledgable. Lots of food available.

    Cons

    Only major complaint is the resistance to growth. Company lost some good potential employees due to an unwillingness to hire Full Time.

    Company is still small (employee-wise), so career paths are not clearly defined and could cause some stall in advancement opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. The environment is fantastic and the company is a good place to work. It was enjoyable to go to work everyday. However, be more open to hiring Contractors on Full Time.
