    I worked at SolArc full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * The team of employees is truly amazing, everyone is very knowledgeable and supportive
    * Management is hands-off but when you need to get help, they are available
     * I liked bonus structure that was tied to billable hours, it was a good incentive

    Cons

    * Not sure how the culture has changed after the company has been acquired by a larger group

    I have been working at SolArc full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are top notch. Time off policies are good. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    It was recently purchased by a venture capital group along with one of their primary competitors. It merged with the much larger OpenLink which is pretty dysfunctional. They've brought in a new regime of C-level executives and spent a ton of money as they often do to make a splash. All the while slashing existing budgets in order to pay for it without regard for actual business needs.

    Free reign over projects during internship, lacks formal training for entry level

    I worked at SolArc as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Upbeat atmosphere, innovative company with lots going for it right now. The management team is very smart, lots of engineering backgrounds. Recently bought so expect some changes in the hiring process.

    Cons

    Company was bought recently by a conglomerate and is experiencing a change in corporate culture. Intern program is nonexistent and lacks training for new college hires.

    Pros

    Smart, capable management who have a lot of respect in the industry. Good job of selecting new employees who for the company culture.

    Cons

    Overly ambitious ideas to extend product line at times. Execs could have been more involved at a client level to help sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more willing to engage at a detailed level with all of Solarc's clients. Face to face time for clients is an important advantage for small companies.
