What Employees Say
I have been working at Plex Systems, Inc. full-time for more than a year
Work life balance is a priority from the top down. We are growing fast, but employee experience is important and protected. I felt that from day one. Flexible work locations/styles, well-packaged,... well-paid and well-recognized. There is little internal competition or politicking. Plex is like one big team, all driving towards the same goal with respect, kindness and an open mind to trying things out, being bold. The drive for customer happiness (not just satisfaction) is like nothing I've ever seen in enterprise SaaS. Our products change the lives of manufacturers and their companies, we feel an owness to deliver and make them successful.
This culture isn't for everyone. It's fast paced and requires drive.
Advice to Management
I see strength in our executive team. Keep representing decisiveness and extreme focus. Appreciate how you take time to individually acknowledge employees.

-Great workspace. Our Salt Lake City office is for R&D, so it's mostly engineers across different teams. The huge commonality is the space. It's energetic, feels like a startup, open environment,... and located right in the heart of the city! -Operating culture is so unique! So many companies bring an engineer in just to sit them at a computer and make them responsible for a singular output - Mavenlink is all about the team and the people around you. It's a pairing environment and we've been able to strengthen each other because of this. It also means we can continue to learn and grow while we're keeping our code clean. -Great leadership! Our Director of Engineering in Utah is extremely down-to-earth. So friendly, always positive, and definitely an enabler. -Autonomy between our teams. We have 6-7 engineering teams across our product side. We each have the ability to change our scenery and join other teams or learn different disciplines. This is the perfect setting for engineers who don't want to be pigeon-holed.
-Some light growing pains are expected and are pretty minimal here. We're expanding the space to have more room for future growth. Being downtown is the energy we want, but it can be harder to access... for those who live further down south (or who make employment decisions based on office proximity versus culture). We feel startup-y. We're not a startup because we've been around since 2009 and have a proven product, but it's not an uptight or corporate culture. This is a huge pro for many, but for those who might think the startup feeling office and environment is a detractor, it could be seen as a con. We get snacks, less rigid management, games, lunches, and the best things that come with a startup-like environment, so I personally see it as only a positive!
Advice to Management
Please keep hiring based on culture! It's hard to define and requires everyone to be engaged in finding the right fit, but as long as culture and collaboration are top-of-mind, the culture will... remain throughout the company scaling. Mavenlink is breaking the mold here so just keep it up!
