    Timesheets are sometimes tedious five words

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing please! Also, the company website reisystems.com should have the URL shorted so that the /Pages/default.aspx is removed

    I worked at REI Systems full-time

    Pros

    Kudos to the marketing department that gamed the best places to work thing.

    Cons

    Identifying the fake Glassdoor entries is so easy to spot--keep working those numbers so your ratings go up!

    Advice to Management

    Accusing former employees as poor performers who were asked to leave and accusing them of writing multiple posts to bring down the scores, only proves the point that is exactly what you are doing! Who hires a coach unless the atmosphere is toxic and the turnover rate of good people is accelerating?

    I worked at REI Systems (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great happy hours, great team, great projects.

    Cons

    Spent a lot of light night at the office. Would seriously be there till 5am in the morning. The hours would make some people irritable.

    Advice to Management

    I learned so much there and was so grateful for my time there. Management is what kept the whole place running. They were calm smart and good listeners. Just keep doing what you guys are doing. My only suggestion is go a head and splurge and hire the really talented guys. I think you will thank your selves in the long run.

    Pros

    Great people, flex hours and good benefits. Work is busy and keeps us on our toes.so people who like to be productive will love it -not a place for slackers!

    Cons

    1. Salaries were lower, exec management worked with HR to benchmark salaries against industry standards. However implementation was not consistent across Business units. The group where i worked salaries were not changed to match the benchmarks for most employees if not all. 2. Even though the company is small, each Business unit operates in their own worlds. Some units are very organized, process oriented and others are chaotic at best.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure consistency in work processes and compensation across the company Take more risk

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are looking to work with good people. Lot of fun activities throughout the year.

    Rely heavily on client's work income which causes the company to struggle to innovate.

    I worked at REI Systems full-time

    Pros

    REI will pay you a high salary, and the employees who work there are mostly enthusiastic people with smiles on their faces.

    Cons

    The cost of living for the area is fairly high compared to other cities. Many of their workers are H1B workers which means that they are able to push their employees harder and use the revocation of their H1B as leverage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the strong culture.

    Pros

    nice offices, open mindset of my boss, willingness to experiment and try new things, earnest co-workers

    Cons

    Sometimes the owners/leaders of the company are only 90% willing to walk the walk

    Advice to Management

    Enforce accountability in small ways. Yes, modeling it is important, yet there are times when some small unilateral rules are needed
