Pros – Cool software and opportunity for anyone starting out. Had that start-up feel initially.
Cons – This was Austin Ventures company, things buckled down when the investors started getting involved. There was a culture change after that.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Surgient is working with really cool and interesting technology. They are working with something called virtualization. They are building software products around the technology. They have really good employees around you. They have a good employee package as far as health care, dental, vision, compensation, 401k plan, stock bonus plan, etc.
Cons – A lot of ups and downs. They don't always listen to employee ideas. Hard to move up the ladder. Most people are in the position that they will be in for years. You can end up working pretty long hours.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your employee ideas. Keep on track and focus on product advancement.
