    Pros

    people, culture, twice/weekly catered food. Really as good as it gets for a small software company.

    Cons

    shipping software is pretty niche and might not seem new and/or fancy as they are mostly form based. However, they do have some cool web development.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work

    Pros

    The Salary and benefits are not bad. Employees are passionate and committed. Never not busy. Managers are approachable and will listen.

    Cons

    Demanding and cheap client base. Company is privately owned and sometimes seems based on the whims of owners. Lack of accountability throughout management structure. No processes in place. Very little room for career development. Do what you do but do it more and quicker.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Think deep and had about career development for employees.

    Pros

    -You will never be bored
    -You will never say "is it 5 yet?"
    -You will constantly be challenged
    -Employees are extremely autonomous
    -You are rewarded for your heard work
    -Your accomplishments are noticed
    -Everyone is very flexible. There is a huge focus on work+life balance
    -Benefits are great
    -Catered lunch two days a week + a fully stocked kitchen
    -Free liquor and beer after 5PM (or when you are done working, of course)
    -There are a ton of opportunities to do more than your normal job description

    Cons

    -The only con (which is also an extreme positive) is that the company is growing so fast that everyone has a lot of work to do.

    -Veson is a very fast-paced environment and a lot is expected out of everyone. If you enjoy being challenged and have a good work ethic then you will do fine here.

    Advice to Management

    -Thanks for fostering an environment where I am constantly learning from some of the smartest people I have ever met!

    Pros

    Family-like + fun environment
    Company that cares about its employees
    Work hard - play hard mentality
    Fascinating + unique industry
    Extremely smart + dedicated team
    Entire company wants to hear what you have to say + they take your thoughts into consideration

    Cons

    At Veson, you are expected to work hard in a very fast-paced environment. Every day is different and you need to stay on your toes. If you are not up for a challenge, then Veson probably is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for creating a workplace that I enjoy going to everyday. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Intelligent and enthusiastic coworkers
    The chance to work on a variety of projects where your feedback is encouraged and implemented
    A respectful team of people who I genuinely enjoy working with
    A fantastic office space designed with employees in mind

    Everyone's contribution is expected. If you aren't up for accountability, it might not be the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Amazing, smart, quirky, accomplished, professional people, gorgeous office, opportunity to grow and take on new challenges, unique opportunity to take the marine market by storm

    Cons

    It's only a downside if you are faint of heart - people are highly engaged and as a result we work hard. If you're not up for that, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    They know what they need to do and are working towards it - pressing responsibility deeper into the organization, creating more repeatable processes and structure, these are the challenges of rapid growth - we are doing it!
