    Watching a good idea slowly burn out while the empowered few fight for control.

    I have been working at Indigo BioSystems

    Pros

    No dress code and very lax attendance policy with reasonable pay. Very friendly coworkers and monthly parties. Opportunity to learn and practice new things.

    Cons

    Office politics impede the growth and survival of the company. No raises or promotions are really available in this seemingly flattened hierarchy. Many in development seem very inexperienced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider bringing a consultant in to run the development team.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, although too much work to take advantage of it.

    Cons

    Crippling communication issues, management sanctioned hostile work environment, and misaligned leadership make working for Indigo a daily nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of the trouble makers, start communicating, and hold everyone accountable for their actions.

    Pros

    Awesome product development philosophy.
    Product touches lots of different platforms and technologies. You won't be bored.
    Great atmosphere for proposing new ideas and processes.
    Surrounded by interesting, smart people.
    Free caffeine.

    Cons

    Back when we still didn't have a product to sell (2010), the atmosphere was difficult. Now we have paying customers and a defined product. For some reason, that has made a huge difference. =)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great, not big.

    I worked at Indigo BioSystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working for Indigo is a great experience. There is always an opportunity to propose your ideas to someone else. Very collaborative atmosphere. There is a clear goal and vision for the products that Indigo creates and everyone makes a strong effort to see that goal realized. It was a great place to watch progress being made on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Can be a bit of a disconnect between the developers and the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!
