    I worked at Rochester Software Associates as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Small company. Nice warm culture. Everyone is friendly. Mentors really help out new developers a lot.

    Cons

    Poor Salaries at least for coops. Technology is not the most cutting edge. Limited use of frameworks. Saturate learning new technologies really quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in newer technologies. Maybe more employee training programs.

    I worked at Rochester Software Associates as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They promote a casual work environment
    They have great people working there
    They are in a nice location
    The intern work is easy

    Cons

    As an intern it got boring really fast
    They do not pay their interns nearly as much as other local companies
    There is a definite age gap between most of the employees that promotes unwanted barriers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management says that they only give their co-ops a small period of time to accept their offer (usually about 3 days) so that they can tell who's serious, but it's kind of a dirty tactic since they offer way ahead of the curve and try to lock you into a lower salary before you have any other offers. Please stop doing this.

    I have been working at Rochester Software Associates

    Pros

    the people are great, my manager is great, but he is limited in his ability to change the company due to the lack of attention of the president.

    Cons

    Senior management are not leaders and lack the skills to properly direct the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they need to let their managers do their job and give them the control needed to run the company. They lack vision and strategy. Bring in an outside consultant to help guide them down the path to success.
