    I have been working at Resource Data Inc full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Although they are experiencing some turnover right now, they are trying to improve things. If your contract comes to an end, you don't have to worry about losing your job. That is huge. They treat their people as adults and they do not micromanage. If you work, you will do well. If plan to coast and goof-off, don't bother applying - you won't last. "Work/life balance" is not just a saying - they really mean it. (But there are time you have to works nights and weekends. Just suck it up - you are a professional.)

    Cons

    Opportunities can be a little limited. Benefits could also be better, but many companies are in the same situation.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you are doing well does not mean you can now slack off. Good management is not a destination but a journey. Continue your journey, you are on track.

    Pros

    Generally great coworkers. Lots of smart people doing good work. Great casual/professional atmosphere. Lots of freedom, flexibility, latitude, and opportunities. Generally interesting projects.

    Cons

    RDI's most talented employees are busy billing work to clients. The result is that RDI suffers internally from some of the very problems it specializes in solving. Working on internal systems or with the corporate group can be frustrating.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is excellent. Salaries based on actual hours worked are extremely competitive - in fact better than most. Recruiting is selective and folks hired are the best in the business. Endless opportunities for motivated consultants.

    Cons

    Those who require a bit more structure won't get it here. You need to be fairly attracted to a flat structure and be comfortable taking on lots of different varied challenges. Benefits could be increased a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue efforts for building out the branches and synchronizing across them

    Pros

    Awesome work location with flexible hours. Options to work from home

    Cons

    Management is always conveniently missing when you need to talk to them. There is a very large disconnect between upper management and the developers as well developers across branches.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more proactive role in the software design and testing process.

    I have been working at Resource Data Inc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is not just a catch phrase here, we actually walk the talk. Very customer oriented, as you would expect from a consulting firm. Lots of opportunity for growth and development for self-starters and hard workers. Very flexible around career direction and priorities, including time-off and leave of absence. Very collegial, really a great group of people.

    Cons

    Not much of a ladder if you're looking to "climb" for an inflated salary (fairly flat organization, which is a plus in my book). Not much mentoring or hand-holding (again, this can be seen as a good thing). To be honest, there are not many cons if you're the right fit for the culture. Some clients can be "challenging", but that just goes with the territory (consulting).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Maybe start some sort of mentoring program?

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom to create the right processes for a project and project managers are given a lot of room to manage their projects as they see fit. People are talented and the hiring process results in quality developers.

    Cons

    Not great holiday and vacation benefits. Pay is a bit lower than industry standards for job description and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training.

    Pros

    RDI is a great place to work, especially if you're starting out in your field. There are a lot of more experienced employees, and the team structure for projects mean that you can glean a lot of information from coworkers, who are all ready, willing and able to help. Project managers are also wonderful. They give a lot of latitude on how you get the work done, as long as it gets done. Very flexible. They have a big commitment to work/life balance and make sure that all employees - from the top on down have the same access to working from home or elsewhere offsite if needed.

    Cons

    Benefits could be a little more robust, but they have been getting better. In the short time I've work there, they added short term disability, which they previously didn't have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, you're doing fantastic!

    Pros

    If you work hard, do quality work and have ambition, you will be rewarded handsomely at RDI. They are very good about letting you guide the kinds of work you want to do, and then environment is as laid back as you will ever see in a business of this size. Salary is in line with other companies, benefits are good and getting better every year, and the HR department is the most active I've ever seen and genuinely cares about employees.

    Cons

    Not as much leave time or retirement contribution as the clients that you will be working for. Management is almost too relaxed in a way, and though it is part of the company's desired culture, it leads to communication problems between workgroups at times.

    Advice to Management

    Increase PTO and retirement contributions, establish clear paths to shareholder status for all employees, not just Programmers, GIS and Project Managers. Reward fast-achieving employees with interim reviews/raises instead of waiting until the annual review.

    Pros

    RDI knows that their lifeblood is their employees. They hire great people and do their best to keep these people at RDI long term. It is great to know that I work with some of the best minds in my field. RDI gives their employees plenty of opportunities for additional training and certifications and encourages and expects employees to increase their skills. RDI offers competitive benefits, Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, 50% 401k matching up to 3%, bonus opportunities, and 15 days paid leave from the get-go. They nature and type of work at RDI gives ample opportunities to learn new technologies as well work on industry leading projects. If you like big data and enterprise GIS systems, this is the company for you. I have been extremely impressed with RDI and would recommend this company to anyone looking for a great place to work.

    Cons

    There are companies out there that may offer a more competitive salary package. To some this will be a deterrent from joining RDI, it was for me initially. I must say however, that RDI has been very good to me since I became an employee. There could be better camaraderie between client-site and on-site employees.
