    I worked at Posit Science full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They were quite meticulous about their Agile processes. I learned more about what the process actually meant there than anywhere else. We had actual demos of completed work at the end of every sprint, followed by a retrospective. Improvements to the process were built into the process. And to contribute to something so profoundly meaningful was truly an honor.

    Cons

    Asked me to stay on to train the people who we were outsourcing my job to. I think they didn't feel they had much of a choice. I got a three month runway to find another job, so it was OK. I miss working there all the same.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on delivering the tools and science of brain plasticity to as many people as you can reach.

    Pros

    Very talented and smart people. You will not be dissapointed.

    Cons

    Top heavy middle management. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who keeps the company running, and think twice before downsizing them.

    Pros

    The Science is worthy The product is about quality of life Customers were great and let us know they liked the product

    Cons

    Culture rewarded spin and frantic behavior While people cared, the Sr team was highly emotional nepotism existed in a few key area, which ultimately hurt the company

    Advice to Management

    Sr team was let go and the company returned to its roots. Drop the price of the product and don't make things too difficult

    Pros

    Paid me very well and the people were very kind to work with.

    Cons

    The company was "top heavy". Everyone was a Director or VP. Absolutely no sales direction or support.

    Advice to Management

    Change out your leadership team
