    A less-structured environment where you can dig into NLP and newer technologies

    Pros

    - Some opportunities to try out bleeding edge open source technologies, which you might not get as much exposure to in a more formal industrial environment.
    - Work atmosphere and attire is like working in a college lab, with very little corporate paperwork.
    - Coworkers like to have intellecually-interesting conversations (Natural Language Processing brings up a lot of unusual and interesting topics).
    - Nice office location near the highway, with a great view

    Cons

    - Most of the positions deal with Natural Language Processing to a large degree, so if you aren't interested in learning about that technology, it won't be a good fit.
    - The software development process is minimal (not a standardized process with requirements analysis, scheduled code reviews, etc) so it wouldn't be a good fit if you desire a very structured development cycle.
    - The yearly review process is done in such a way which does not give the employee much of a roadmap for improvement.

    Pros

    The company had engaging projects in natural language processing to work on, good coding standards and excellent collaboration among developers and other employees.

    Cons

    Very disorganized project management, switching horses midstream. The management is stuck in an academic model that does not plan things out, and expectations frequently changed with only a few hours notice and very little explanation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan out ahead of time what you want employees to do, or talk about the different possibilities.

    Pros

    The work which is focused on researching and designing natural language processing software is interesting and very challenging. The people that work there are smart and friendly. The work schedule is flexible and promotes a good life balance. I got exposed to a lot of cool open source technologies as well. Since it is a small company, you can really make a difference.

    Cons

    There is not an opportunity for employee ownership, so financial incentives are fair but limited. There can be limitations for changing positions or roles within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think outside the box on how to provide long term incentives that align the goals of the company with those of the employees.
