    Pros

    Great work/home life balance. Employees here are assets, not resources. One of our benefits includes a yearly professional development budget for training. We have a great culture and challenging work.

    Cons

    We've been around a long time and occasionally you have to work with some legacy code.

    Pros

    * Professional development lunches: Interested in learning a new technology or introducing one to your co-workers? Every Tuesday / Thursday we get together for an optional meet up to discuss new ideas, or work on projects to keep ourselves up to date with things that WE want to learn.
    * Book club: Once a week we meet during business hours to discuss a book or video series that we've agreed to read / watch. The discussions are fun and stimulating.
    * Push to learn: We're always encouraged to continue learning, both at and outside of work. It's one of the first places I've worked at that feels like they genuinely want you to better yourself. Better employees, better company, right?
    * Your ideas matter: Have an idea to bring in a new technology? Propose it to your peers, and it may actually get adopted.
    * Team building activities and outings: Go-kart racing, lunch basketball sessions at the park, etc.
    * Large focus on test driven development
    * Education / conference budget for developers and quality assurance staff: We are allotted an annual budget for attending conferences, bringing in consultants to help mentor us in different areas, or taking classes.
    * Great work / life balance: Some employers would gladly work you 80+ hrs a week. Although we have enough work to easily put in 100+ hr weeks, this is never the case. Naturally, there are crunch times, but generally, it is encouraged that you take time for yourself and live your life in a healthy, happy manner.

    Cons

    * Small development staff can sometimes lead to hectic deadlines

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employee's feedback and act on it. It provides a feeling of ownership in the company and the work that's being done there.

    Pros

    Friendly Environment. Never have I ever worked for a company where I was on a first name basis with the CEO, as I am here. The non-work-related competitions are fun and drive camaraderie and team building.

    Cons

    Can only wear shorts on Friday between April and September.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep doing what you are doing. The management at this company is helpful and you can really tell they care about their employees and their products.

    Pros

    Loyal to employees. Long history of profitability.

    Cons

    "Design by committee" mentality. To many opinions and no real decisions. Compensation was on the low end

    Pros

    Unifocus is a great place to work if you have the industry experience and expertise. Consutants are given a lot of flexibility to exercise their creativity. If you work well with little or no supervision - then this is the place to be. The company is growing and is very receptive to new ideas. The work environment is very supportive and flexible. But best to bring your A game.

    Cons

    This is not an entry level company. There is little structure or training for a newbie.

    Advice to Management

    Unifocus is on the right track. There are a lot of improvements to be made - and management is being very responsive to all suggestions. The tone is always positive and supportive. Keep up the great job!

  10. Unifocus is not a place for a good sales person.

    Rid yourself of the president.
