    Pros

    The employees at Rivet are amazing and were the only reason people stayed there.

    Cons

    Leadership is manipulative, inexperienced, and very political. Nepotism runs rampant, and unless you are a part of the "in-crowd" they will find a way to make your life so miserable you really have no other option but to look for opportunities elsewhere.

    Pros

    It's easy to take time off. The work life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    From this position, it's hard to move anywhere else in the company. XBRL is a niche market and not easily transferred.

    Pros

    The people that work here are great! They seem to care about you outside of work as well as during office hours.

    Cons

    There is a lack of vision. Too many hands in the cookie jar in all decisions. Lack of resources leads to fast burnout of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if we took action to keep our employees happy instead of always thinking about how we can get along when they leave.

    Pros

    Lots of independence, opportunity to learn new technologies and grow your career as much as you'd like.

    Cons

    Leadership is somewhat limited, employee resources are limited, not tons of opportunity for growth at the moment. When people leave for other jobs, it seems the positions are just left unfilled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more straightforward with everyone, explain as much of your actions as possible, listen to and respond to the feedback given. Take the money that you are saving when an employee leaves, and invest it in hiring another.

    I have been working at Rivet Software

    Pros

    Relaxed company that allows you to grow within the organization, small perks that accommodate employees such as soda machines, bagel Wednesdays, and adjusting your schedule to fit your needs.

    Cons

    The management team is the only team that grows, which creates a top-heavy organization resulting in a lot of managers. Managers don't do a good job of recognizing the effort by the employees except for the CEO. This isn't a company that works well together because everyone is trying to out do each other. The competition to get things done and be the one who did gets credit really gets in the way of achieving results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to every employee about their manager and see how effective everyone is. Talking to the managers about how things are going isn't an effective way to gain feedback. Do employee reviews, make us accountable.

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    So many years of no direction. To many employees that have come and gone to even keep track of. No one can figure out how to really make this Company a success.

    I have been working at Rivet Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation, excellent advancement opportunities, laid back company culture and office atmosphere, incredible schedule flexibility (you have the ability to evaluate your personal workload and decide when to complete it with the best interest of the company in mind. Employees here have been hired with the assumption that they don’t need to be micro-managed), incredibly talented and friendly co-workers, undoubtedly one of the best places in Denver to work despite our previous setbacks and hardships.

    You may be reading this now very confused as to why there is such a deviation between the negative and positive reviews of the company on Glassdoor. The reason is that the company grew too quickly at one point due to a Securities and Exchange Commission mandate, and after Rivet pioneered this particular business model, extensive reorganization had to take place to transition the company from a service organization back to its roots as a software company. Many short term employees were hired and had to be laid off, and a lot of them were under qualified and overpaid, and the negative reviews are from those people that are understandably upset that they can no longer be here.

     The truth is that this is an absolutely incredible place to work. This organization is full of extremely talented developers and business professionals, and we've succeeded in the past and will continue to be the pioneer and market leader of the corporate financial reporting industry.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working at Rivet Software. The future of the company is extremely bright and it's an absolute privileged to be a part of this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is full of talented leaders that are moving this company in the right direction. The next few years as an employee at Rivet Software will be very exciting and we're looking forward to it.

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

    Pros

    Not a single one - unless you consider being underpaid, over-worked, but you get a free lunch sometimes as a pro

    Cons

    Long hours, no overtime and the position shouldn't be classified as exempt. Poor communication and supervision from upper management. Micro managers or no management both are the worst. One person is overworked and the next is surfing the internet or reading a book - on company time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen when you are told how lousy your manager is
