    Pros

    They reward/compensate you based on your performance and not seniority
    They give away bonus money and trips like it's free water

    Cons

    There is very little room for advancement in the small Memphis office
    Sometimes the other workers make it a negative work environment

    Advice to Management

    Show your face more often on the production floor. There are people who have been with the company for months/years who do not know your face or if they have seen you in passing they do not know who you are/your title

    Pros

    A very people oriented company. The seem to really care about their employees and how they are doing. They want to succeed with their people.

    Cons

    Some of the mid level managers are not good about communication with their subordinates. Ignore emails and phone calls way too often.

    Advice to Management

    Take a major hit one year to really invest in the software.

    Pros

    Good employment stability. Work/Life balance is good.

    Company management is bad. No growth career wise. Technology is out of date.
    Stay out from this company if you want a growth in your career wise and technology wise.

    Advice to Management

    GuideWire is implementing the product in almost every state. Where as StoneRiver, Inc is not even reachable.

    Pros

    -benefits (medical, vision, dental, 401k)
    -decent pay with bonuses
    -lots of different shifts and opportunity to work from home

    Cons

    company is taking on millions of dollars in new business but not hiring more people or giving raises of any kind for 3 times the work. this was a great company when I started but this past year it has fallen apart. way too strict on attendence policies, people get sick sometimes! you'd think with all the new business they would show employees some appreciation but instead they got rid of all company parties, they used to even do birthday lunches but not anymore. the call volume is 3 times what it used to be so they "train" you to take other depts calls. yeah, 1 hour of training so you basically get yelled at all day because you have no idea what you're doing and team leads are never available. horrible company now, don't bother applying

    Advice to Management

    stop being so cheap! you're employees are not happy and your customers are not happy.
