Great environment and people to work with

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at RealDecoy full-time

Pros* RealDecoy has a great culture and values
* best people to work with
* friendly and supportive management team
* flexible dress code
* fun environment (BBQs, Foosball table and PS3 in place, Waffles served on Friday)
* good learning opportunity
* Work-life balance, flexible working hours if you aren’t available for the average 9 - 5

ConsThe company has gone through some changes since the beginning of the year. The change initiative was generally implemented for the good of the company, however sometimes the need for change was not clear to everyone. This spreads doubt and fear among employees, especially for the change resistors.

Disorganized but fun if you like people

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at RealDecoy full-time for more than a year

ProsGood people, you will laugh.

ConsTalking is more important than thinking. If you are a nerd and want to touch many technologies, this might not be the place your are looking for. If you are an extrovert and know some technology you might be a good fit.

Advice to Senior ManagementChallenge your employees and get to know what other skills they might be good at. Listen.

Lacking consistency and competent leadership

Pros- the people are some of the best that I ever worked with
- decent benefits and vacation

Cons- lots of talk about change and continuous improvement with little actual change or improvement
- indecision of what exactly their product offering is
- HR depth and professionalism is lacking

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at RealDecoy

ProsGreat people, good environment, emphasis on learning and work-life balance. Collaboration and sharing, teamwork. Positive environment. Growing. Travel if you like it.

ConsNot everyone is ready for change as the company grows. The challenge will be to keep the close entrepreneurial culture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A passenger during a transition

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

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

ProsStrong technology partners and interesting projects
Relaxed and youthful atmosphere
Work-life balance
Learning opportunities and professional development
The opportunity to be part of a growing professional services firm

ConsThere are many clans on islands, with very few bridges
Workflow is best described as "fits and starts"
The company's potential is tied to the leadership's ability to learn how to grow a company for the first time.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe expansion into other regions leaves teams a fragmented and communication challenging. There probably is zero chance of over-communicating so opening the all channels couldn't hurt.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Wonderful people, great advancement opportunities, interesting work - what more could you ask for?

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I have been working at RealDecoy

ProsOver my years with RealDecoy I've had the opportunity to work with wonderful people (both colleagues and clients), learn new technologies and skills, travel, provide input into improving the RD process as the company transitioned through exponential growth and tried my hand at 3 distinct roles. It has been a great experience!

ConsLike any organization experiencing rapid growth, there have been bumps along the road. Processes and methodology have been evolving (with the purpose of providing a superior customer experience), which can be challenging; but it is all for the greater good.

Advice to Senior ManagementI hope that the RealDecoy management team continue to work at being as transparent and open as possible as we continue to grow and change. It makes all the difference!

I have been working at RealDecoy

ProsLearning Culture - allows employees to expand their knowledge
People - Hard working, driven, fun
Growth - we are always growing; whether to new locations, adding new people to the team, or learning new technologies or processes - we never seem to slow down. This is exciting.
