Does Bottle Rocket offer unlimited time off?

Pros

Flexible work schedule. Unlimited PTO, Great people.

Cons

Below market salary, Top heavy with management, changing culture. Growing disconnection from actual technical innovation.

Advice to Management

Offer salaries that are actually competitive. This would help you hire good talent and retain your best engineers. Stop adding more management and work on building from the ground up. You don't need a 10 VPs to make your company seem like it has vision, allow your employees to help craft that. BR used to be innovative. Working from wherever isn't innovative when plenty of tech companies offer this already. If you want to be an industry leader again, focus on using other tech companies as a baseline/bare-minimum for what you offer, then move up from there.

Unlimited PTO, Great people.

How are senior leaders perceived at Bottle Rocket?

Pros

I feel like I can be myself in this environment. My director is incredibly supportive. It feels that everyone here wants to have a good time but do some serious work (that they actually enjoy.) I really enjoy the people I work with, PMs, QAs, Devs, everyone wants to work together and perform well. I have opportunities to learn and I have opportunities to teach. I have opportunities to meet and get to know people I otherwise wouldn't have met.

Cons

As a consulting company - it can be a pain to deal with clients sometimes. But that is to be expected.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing!

My director is incredibly supportive.
