    I have been working at Recondo Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My experience in being a part of Recondo's staff team is really positive. It's a great place to work. There are a lot of really smart people that work hard, and are good at what they do. Working hard and smart gets recognized and affirmed. Executive staff are leaders, not just bosses, which pulls out the best in everyone.

    Cons

    The office space isn't the prettiest, but I have what I need to do my job.

    Pros

    Fair pay, work from home benefits available.

    Lay off's unexpected, even after CEO said there wouldn't be.

    I couldn’t agree more that the people are the best part of Recondo. Unfortunately, we have had some challenges that did not meet the long-term goals of a few key team members. While it is natural ... More

    I worked at Recondo Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people who in general wanted to do a good job.

    Cons

    Tons of turnover - with one exception entire senior management team has changed - and in some cases more than once in less than a year had everyone spinning.

    Thanks for the review and I understand your concerns. At the end of 2014 we appointed a new CEO for the first time in 7 years. We then set-out to rebuild and re-organize our company in order to ... More

    I have been working at Recondo Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Recent changes to our C-suite have brought new energy to the company. We are very results focused and have a TQM practice growing in all areas. Even the CEO shares his "MITs" (most important tasks) at Town Hall. There is still work to do... releases can be a struggle and outages still happen BUT we have the talent in place to address things quickly and get to root cause rather than blame. The environment is more and more fun everyday. Staff can be themselves, wear jeans, work remotely, etc.

    Cons

    Sometimes a sense of urgency driven by client requests / issues can overtake other business goals. Fire drills are fewer every day but they do still happen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparent communication - be more visible.

    Pros

    -Recondo has become a great place to experience the dynamics of a changing, refreshed company. There is a new energy being brought in by a new executive staff and a positive drive towards maturity. -Sense of 'employees-as-a-community' via fun activities and a more balanced workplace than with the prior management layer. -Newly re-defined technology and product path that is showing momentum. -Finally!, a new website and more social networking activity to show what Reco is doing. -Hard working, dedicated group of people. My team has found flexibility and a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    -Some groups within the company still retain aspects of the previous management style.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Many of us are feeling the change and it is exciting!

    Pros

    You get used to running around putting out fires due to poor infrastructure decisions and even worse code decisions.

    Cons

    Just about everything. The systems are ridiculous, there is no QA, everything is a priority 1 fire and everything is on fire all the time. A lot of the critical systems are single threaded and fall over regularly. They're bleeding customers faster than they can bring them on board. The management model is based on nepotism and if you're part of the crowd awesome! You don't have to know anything about your job, if you're not they will work you to the bone

    Advice to Management

    Your management model is completely broken, your code base broken. Focus on stability instead of throwing out 20 new features every release

    Pros

    Very good developer philosophy. Scrum, Agile, KanBan, we've got it all. Developers are mentored somewhat, while you're not stuck with someone always looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    Company refuses to use up to date anything. Everything is years old, horrible technology. Tack on feature creep and improper testing with bad management and this is a very bad situation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding new features to every single thing. The products aren't stable, why should you be adding new things that just break everything once more.

    Pros

    The intern program is great ... if you are an intern. They have a "School Comes First" mentality and have small offices located near colleges to accommodate students who want to work during the school year. You get to pick your hours and how much you work.

    Cons

    They hire a ton of interns and when they go back to school we are left short handed and overworked There is way to much work and not nearly enough employees. People are quitting due to stress and being overworked and we don't back hire to fill their positions so their work gets distributed to other, already overworked, employees. Recondo 7 years old and still has a startup company mentality. We are trying to break through that and all we have managed so far is a bunch of extra work for everyone that accomplishes almost nothing. Pay is decent but there are no bonuses or 401K matching. They tell us we all have stock but it means nothing because we still haven't managed to go public though we have been trying for years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and don't overwork your staff! Without them you would be nothing

    Thank you for your feedback. Recondo is a dynamic and fast-paced software company. We recognize this sometimes means working over 40 hours a week. Our intern program has been instrumental in the ... More
