    Pros

    Grid has a friendly environment comprised of people who really care about the company and executing at the top of their league. Grid is is about 400 people but feels like there are 20. You have the ability to stand out, contribute and make a difference compared to larger companies where you don't know everyone.

    Cons

    Grid has been growing fast and is making strides to transition and change to keep up with the employment explosion. This is not really a con, as a plan has been set into motion, but is all I could think of to fill the requirement to type in this space.

    Pros

    -Dynamic environment, new experiences and opportunities each day -Genius-level engineering staff; amazing to learn from and work with -New professional executive with experience and drive to take Grid to the next level -Positive outlook for the future; between the market and our strategies, we will stay one step ahead of technology. -Excellent health benefits and a company that really cares about you as a person and your professional development. Semi-annual review process is a priority with most reviews and meetings completed within the due date. -Although we are over 350 people world-wide, In the US we have a nice family feel.

    Cons

    -As Grid is a major consultant in eCommerce, and has such talented engineers, we are extremely particular about hiring and can always use more amazing engineers! I will say, at least once we find the right person, we move fast!

    Advice to Management

    -Continue listening to our employees and shaping Grid into a mature eCommerce leader! Keeping the human element (care) while growing can be tough but hang in there and I am certain we will retain that wonderful sense of morale and family we currently have! Empower as many people as possible to care for our group, especially our talented engineers who make Grid what it is...a superior company to be part of!

    Pros

    - great career perspectives in a growing company (management and administrative tracks) - good fraction of really smart engineers in all locations - persuading and charismatic leader

    Cons

    - not a good place for senior engineers oriented on technical growth - chaotic changes in directions - achievements are not evaluated properly - waste of resources on meaningless research/non-billable projects

    Advice to Management

    - define company core mission and stick to it - remove excessive levels of management, flattening the structure - take projects aligned to the core mission, stop doing work just for revenue - focus and invest in what makes sense for the company core mission, with research projects in particular - recruitment practices are what makes any company; and those need a lot of improvements, in US in particular - invest in marketing and sales

    Pros

    Work here gives opportunity to develop technical and management skills as well as knowledge around e-commerce business. On-site technologists analyse business requirements, transform those into functional and non-functional requirements for software application, design architecture, oversee implementation, tune performance and see end result in production. It is really amazing!

    Cons

    Sometimes there is too much organizational and management work which is perfect for those who want to develop those skills, but less preferable for those who wants to focus on developing technical skills. It is a matter of being able to setup process right though.

    Pros

    There is no boring things there. Every task are challenging. Motivation of all teams is really impressive. 100% of managers have technical background so they totally understand problems of all developers. Also it is good that clients are located both in the city and in the whole Bay Area, so employee could choose good location to work in

    Cons

    Grid Dynamics need more engineers
