    I have been working at Orases full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have worked at Orases for more than a year, and it has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. It starts with the family-oriented, team-focused culture in the office -- from management to the developers, your team is truly there to back you up. My position is challenging in a good way -- I am always being pushed to learn and improve my skillsets. For example, Orases is currently providing Project Management training to help a few team members earn their CAPM certification. Each project is different, which keeps the daily grind interesting, and Orases works with diverse clients -- from high-profile national brands to small, local businesses.

    Cons

    If you are a person who does not thrive in a fast-paced environment or who does not seek challenges and personal growth, Orases is not the place for you.

    I worked at Orases full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The mantra "put quality first in every decision" is evident in everything that Orases produces. The management is intently focused on product quality and client satisfaction while consistently demonstrating a high regard for the employees personal needs and advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    If you're looking to hide in a corner this is not the place for you. It is an exciting, fast-paced, dynamic environment. The company is on the forefront of internet technology and that requires rapid response to constant change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote the balance between a high work ethic and the commitment to personal health and welfare of the employees and their families.

    I worked at Orases full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The developers there know what they are doing. IF you are looking to learn from others and work with a group of skilled developers, surprisingly enough they are here. Although they are slowly leaving....

    Cons

    Project Management is almost non existent. Other reviews claim there is training but there is none! We were even denied for a FREE training seminar on new cloud based technology. There is always A LOT of finger pointing from management when projects do go right but never do they point back to themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    close the doors, and stop posting fake reviews.

    I worked at Orases

    Pros

    We had decent machines to develop on and most of the employees were fun

    Cons

    Management was misdirected and had no respect for employees. Within a year there was about 6 people that left in a 10 person company. Everyone is replaceable entities to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give everything away for free, developers end up being the ones pressured into not taking pride into their work because it must be rushed.

    I have been working at Orases

    Pros

    I worked at Orases as an intern and really enjoyed my time there. The team was great and the environment is fun. We worked hard but it was worth it

    Cons

    Sometimes its hard to see all the work we do for Orases and get credit. But overall its much better then any other place I interned or worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have given me great advice and I have learned great work ethics from the management team. Its nice to see a management team that works as hard, if not harder, then everyone else. Dave and Nick our a great combo.

    I have been working at Orases

    Pros

    Orases has a cool client list and a fun atmosphere to work in. Rarely have to work overtime or weekends but is a deadline oriented focus so your work must get done. Developers are friendly and help each other out with road blocks or brainstorming.

    Cons

    Developers do not fake your resume. Be prepared to do what you say you can do -- its a small company and no where to hide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team appears to be a cohesive group - very approachable and hands-on. If you are coming from a big company the term 'management' is not the same. These guys dig in and do work.

    I worked at Orases

    Pros

    The only good thing really is the clients that a developer gets experience with while working there. Just look at the company's website to see some of the well-known clients.

    Cons

    Frequent overtime is expected and isn't rewarded. Additionally, it's nearly impossible to grow personally while at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay higher in order to keep employees happy (so they'll do better work for you) and this will also make it easier to find and keep new employees.
