Decent company

Senior Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
Vienna, VA

I have been working at Ratner Companies full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFamily and fun culture. Management team are very considerate and caring. CEO and president walk around the headquarter to greeting people and listen to people constantly. A lot of company fun events. Free hair cut coupon and hair product coupon every month. Flexible hours and low pressure at work. Up to 24 days unpaid leave after 5 years of employment.

ConsSalary is low. Management team is against the idea of working from home.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ratner Companies

ProsThe free education and the training.

ConsIf you're not a part of the click you are not accepted or liked. It's sad to know that adults behave this way in the business world but it's true. I was consistently bullied and attacked by women that behaved like young girls. The higher up's are also a part of this issue and thats why this behavior will never change or stop at all. If you are looking to work here I strongly advise you do your research. I have never experienced such behavior in the work place. It's sad to know that the owners are really great and loving people I hope that someone brings this issue to there attention and they can look into this issue and investigate with HR. No one should experience the consistent behavior/bullying that I went through. This behavior needs to stop.

Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure the Management team and bring people that are serious about work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
