    Pros

    Fast paced and growing company in the technology space. Exposure to many facets of the business in any position. New executive team committed to bringing enhanced values and cultures.

    Cons

    A lot of growth means a lots of growing pains. Tons of projects to balance and move forward at the same time. Change can also be difficult in implementing new business processes.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to try new things. Given a lot of freedom on implementation. Recently started using newer technologies that make the work fun. Tim is a great manager who really gets IT and how things should be done. If you are a hard worker and willing to learn on your own, this company is a great fit for you.

    Cons

    Not a lot of experienced talent. Many developers stuck in the expert beginner stage. Not that there aren't talented developers but there tends to be a lot of hard to maintain code.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your IT department is dysfunctional. Really low skilled sys admins. Sending developers to conferences is just a must. Give each developer the option for 2 developer conferences a year.

    Pros

    Great people, a lot of freedom to work how you want. We currently have ruby and php going on. You have to love the Ruby apps.

    Cons

    Developers area tends to be very dark. They provide lamps though if you want them.

    Pros

    You have plenty of time to learn new techniques and to apply for other jobs. It's a great place to work if you want to start at 8, leave at 5, and have lunch in a restaurant (not always local) for two hours every day. Yep - every day.
    There are some really talented people working there.
    Garden parties in the summer, and film outings throughout the year.

    Cons

    There's nothing to do. They have far too many people for the work available. Entire teams sit around doing nothing, and developers leave because 'the pay at (xxx) isn't better, but they offered me something to actually do'.
    Don't expect to share in the success of the company. If you're not related to the CEO, you're getting nothing.
