    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

    Cons

    The 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.

    I worked at RealDecoy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people, you will laugh.

    Cons

    Talking 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    I have been working at RealDecoy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Strong 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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.

    I have been working at RealDecoy

    Pros

    Over 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!

    Cons

    Like 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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!

    Pros

    Learning Culture - allows employees to expand their knowledge

    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.

    Need to solidify processes - progress has been made in the last six months to do so and we are headed in a great direction
