    Wild West IT

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsFun people to work with.

    ConsManagement is very disconnected from current technology. Everything is shoot from the hip and hope for the best. Very demanding and burn out within a year or two is inevitable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow your employees that you value them or they will continue to leave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Quality Assurance Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood place to get basic knowledge. Some good people to learn from.

    ConsNo training. Micromanagement. The building is hot in the summer, and cold in the winter. incompetent managers, no vision. The owners buy new cars for over 100,000 then tell employees no money for raises. If the tree are good reviews they are put up by the HR department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement never listens. So why try

    Greaet owners, awesome beer cart

    Quality Assurance Engineer (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThey are finally starting to shake up middle management a bit, get rid of the old and bring in some new movers.
    The beer cart is amazing. The girl who pushes it though isn't too bright however, If you drop a dollar she will bend over and pick it up! Bonus!
    Lots of very attractive men and woman! You would hardly beleive this was a software company! Also very pro-gay. Team parties where we play touch football is super fun!

    ConsTheres only 3 toilets on the third floor to serve over 100 ovefrweight and partially diebetic male programmers. You can basically forget going number 2 between the hours of 11:30am and 2:30pm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementServe more light beers.
    Repurpose some of the 3rd floor womans toilets for the men. It is a 90% male workforce after all.
    Continue to send ineffective managers off to "middle management heaven" to keep your new initiatives progressing smoothly.

    Dramatic change in last year!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsA really fun environment, the team of people feels like family. Some amazing new technologies in the mix like Scala, iOS, and Big Data! Improved emphasis on work-life balance along with some good benefits like fitness classes, running clubs, ping-pong tournaments.

    ConsThe company is still undergoing change so there are still remnants of old culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStick to the new vision and over communicate! Put people first and continue to replace mediocre people with great people! The new culture is good - let it grow!

    "Management" isn't - Micro-Management it is

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome nice co-workers. A few good teams to work with and learn from. Good down-town location, off-street parking, and close to many lunch options.

    ConsIf you aren't part of the "in" crowd (they, unfortunately, are not the talented crowd) you can't do good work. No matter what you do, "management" will take credit or suddenly decide they wanted to do THAT a long time ago. Flexibility IF you are one of the "in" crowd, not if you are just a regular employee. Bad pay, very few days off (PTO and company days).

    Advice to Senior ManagementSince you seem to be positioning the company to dump/sale for your own profit, just do it and let the real workers continue. You obviously know nothing about your own products so your "guidance" would not be missed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to Work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsGood work-life balance. Hard-work is appreciated! Flexible work environment for the people who do not misuse it. Nice and friendly people to work with.

    ConsUpper management not always connected with the world of individual contributors. Talent and skills are not well utilized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHas great vision, but need right people to provide direction. Look for ways to hold on to talented, skilled people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Stepping Stone

    Development Manager (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsCertain teams were better to work for than others. Nice down town location. Some quality people, but not so many.

    ConsManagement philosophy doesn't promote excellent customer satisfaction. No room for growth. If you aren't in the "In" crowd, you won't go anywhere in the company. Ego and politics abound. Lots of churn and turn over with a "ride em' hard" and when they are worn out, replace them mentality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell the company. That will be the only way to change the culture here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    30 year old startup.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere is always something exciting to be working on
    Really fun people to work with
    Decent starting pay

    ConsMixed signals from middle management
    bad work/life balance
    Difficult / meager advancement
    Little to no notice on big, visible projects

    Advice to Senior ManagementLighten up! Drop the dress code, and make it fun to work there! That office is boring and stale, add some color, ping pong tables and arcade machines to the work areas. Give people a chance to have a slight distraction or escape from work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
