    Pros

    Company has great vision, great products and thinks a lot about its people

    Cons

    Needs to develop a sales culture and grow the business as timing is everything in new product innovations

    Pros

    Collegiate environment, Friday catered lunches and happy hours, and casual attire. In the heart of the capital, Washington DC.

    Cons

    Everything is a high priority, micromanagement, a lot of meetings a day, very poor communication about all aspects of the company- in general.

    Pros

    Sentrana is a startup tech company. As a small company, most projects requires multi-team efforts, and even newbees get tons of opportunities to work with people from other teams and get exposed to all aspects of a project.

    Cons

    Not really a con: small as it is, the name is not as cool as Google or Microsoft on your resume.

    I have been working at Sentrana

    Pros

    The company is very young and it feels like academic environment where people from multiple discipline collaborate. The problem we are solving is very interesting, the people are smart and the senior managements are a great team. Great benefits and pay -- Free breakfast on Monday, free lunch on Friday, paid parking/metro expenses, telecommuting options and etc. They are expanding work place, the environment will only be better. It's a great place if you are looking for software development, quantitative modeling or consulting jobs. Washington, DC is not silicon valley but having a company like Sentrana here is really cool!

    Cons

    There are not enough people to work on multiple projects and the workload is quite a lot. Things can get chaotic at times and sometimes people don't know how to prioritize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ramp up resources and allow people to focus more in one project rather than multiple projects at the same time. More vacation days will be appreciated! 10 days is not enough, the norm is 15 days!

    Pros

    High energy, smart people, fun, good salary, great work/life balance, company sponsored events, great senior management, awesome co-workers, the company anticipates employees needs.

    Cons

    Very full work load, difficult to focus on one task at a time, everything is high priority. So - it is high stress sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lower management staff needs more support, i.e., more assistants and more employees to help carry the work load.
