    I worked at Griffin Technology full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, including 401k matching.
    Relaxed work environment.
    Management is accessible.
    Opportunities for internal advancement and lateral moves.

    Cons

    Lack of resources combined with the need to support and improve a large existing product catalog can result in limited ability to develop new ideas that depend upon the skill sets of multiple teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New managers just joining the company could benefit from mentorship and better defined goals.
    Learn how to empower the innovators in the company, or risk becoming irrelevant.

    I have been working at Griffin Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pros include a laid-back work environment and good insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Communication throughout the company is poor. Upper management doesn't seem to realize how big the company is and that it can't be run like a startup anymore. Salaries are NOT competitive, and raises are few and far between, making it seem that management doesn't value their employees. Budgets are incredibly tight, making it very hard to progress with new projects or ideas. Organization and leadership is poor. Company moral is low and social events are few and far between. Overall, it seems like an uphill battle all of the time, with no end in sight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exercise some leadership, promote company moral, and pay employees fairly.

    Ambiguity of some projects. At the time, a lot of restructuring was occurring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the lower level employees; they often had really great ideas that weren't heard.

    I have been working at Griffin Technology

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, you can push projects through that you feel strongly about, people are friendly and fun to be around.

    Cons

    Communication is a real problem as the company grows. It seems like people get fired out of the blue often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your expectations known! Allow unpaid vacation time. Hire quality people so you don't have to fire them so often.

    This company offered me with good compensation and benefits. Senior management in this company provides excellent leadership to the team.
