    I have been working at ThoughtLab full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment is always improving. It's easy to stay cutting edge and use new technologies knowing your employer is supporting new tech. You aren't just a name on a paper you are part of the team and your voice is heard.

    Cons

    You need to be self motivated. You are expected to be able to hold your own and if you need someone to hold your hand, you will struggle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue listening to your employees for new ideas and keep improving the work environment. As long as the communication is great between the staff and clients things will be golden.

    I worked at ThoughtLab full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technical team and interest in new technology. Collaborative coworkers. Flexible work schedule (best thing). Great location downtown. The strength of work lies in the individual talents of the staff.

    Cons

    Management mostly hands off approach, and doesn't support the team throughout entire length of project (multiple examples of staff being thrown under the bus for management to save face at end of project). Clients often dissatisfied as projects conclude, almost no repeat work says something. High staff turnover is very disconcerting to clients. Minimal training, or advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need reviews, predictable payment increases, insurance payments on time.
    It should be a major focus to have very happy clients at end of projects.

    Doesn't Recommend
  3. OK! But not an organized company.

    I worked at ThoughtLab full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pros - strong technical team and other smart non-tech good people work here, we can pick and choose timing you come in.

    Cons

    Cons – Management is not so good, less salary, random people come at this place sometimes and started asking questions ends up in distraction, team members need to act like a receptionist, Outlook mail is 16th century old work only around 0.05 mile radius.
    as usual like any other cmny's any time you can expect layoff when there is no work.

    company policies are not clear cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ----- still reading my post? as you are going to change something...
