try to find consistency

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Cherwell Software full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Cherwell is really a great place to work. Here are a few reasons why: - Culture: I work with people all across the country (and developers in Scotland!) who all are very talented, offer diverse... perspectives, and bring out the best in you. Communication is easy, and trust is high. And this is experience is consistent both within and outside my R&D department. - Flexibility/Benefits: We have a good remote work policy that even allows employees who live near HQ to work from home. There is a flexible PTO policy that doesn't put a cap on vacation - and there is no stigma around taking time off. The other benefits (health, 401k, etc) are comparable to other tech companies in the area. - Tech: Cherwell has a unique product and a seemingly limitless potential for new projects and innovation. As with any product, there is room for improvement. But as an engineer, this kind of thing excites me. On a given day I can find myself working on anything from websockets to machine learning algorithms. Overall, the people are wonderful and the work is exciting. There isn't much more I can ask for.

Cons

As with any company, there seems to be a loud vocal minority who either complain about trivial issues or irrational misconceptions. Much of the negativity in the reviews seem to think that management... is out to get them and destroy their work-life balance. This is irrational and untrue. When you take a step back and compare Cherwell to other similar tech companies the stats bear out that we have one of the lowest voluntary employee attrition rates. This is a testament to the great culture and perks. The anonymous surveys also point to how the majority of employees love working here and think the CEO, Sam, is doing a fine job. Let the numbers do the talking instead of the vocal minority.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!
