    I have been working at Learning Objects full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small, innovative, agile company on the rise Based in learning science and focused on learner success Fantastic physical space in downtown DC

    Cons

    Boot-strapped growth through new client acquisition sometimes makes it hard to get out ahead on the product roadmap. But we're getting there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent regarding resourcing issues and how they relate to accelerating the strategic roadmap. Be more strategic regarding professional development--tie it to the company's vision of improving learning and education wherever possible.

    I worked at Learning Objects full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time as a QA Engineer at LO; I met some great people, learned a great deal about agile development and software in general, and felt like I had chances to contribute. If I had to list the positives, they would have to be - Awesome co-workers, great job flexibility, amazing perks, and significant growth over a short period of time.

    Cons

    I'm not going to sugar coat things because wherever you have a ying there is always a yang. The QA role can require long hours because there are times when you will need to work later than usual to ensure build quality after all developer code has been checked in for the day. This is definitely not the place for you if you are faint hearted or can't be flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Try to recognize your frontline QA staff more for the effort they put in and how much they care. In fact, that should be the case for all staff members, not just development staff.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Daily snacks, beer and wine for after hours. The work is interesting and exciting. They are really at the cutting edge of education technology.

    Cons

    I would really expect some sort of 401k matching. The work can sometimes result in very long hours. Initial work planning still needs a bunch of help to make sure there is a good balance.

    Advice to Management

    401k matching is a must to be truly competitive. Need to involve software developers in the business development process.

    Pros

    It has a friendly working environment. People would try hard to help you if you need help. It's close to Chinatown metro.

    Cons

    They have some new competitors.
