What is the retirement plan like at WideOrbit?

Pros

401k match, work from home opportunities.

Cons

Too many mistakes from the top. Bet on the wrong horse and kept head in the sand. Layoff was completely random and good intelligent people were let go, while others who probably deserved to go got to stay. Zero reward or validation for hard work on successful initiatives or projects. CEO claims to hate Glassdoor but then HR and upper management request employees give good reviews on Glassdoor. Layoffs don't facilitate trust and there have been scores of people leaving the company for greener pastures.

Advice to Management

Listen to your middle management. Re-institute employee feedback survey you have been avoiding for the past 4-5 years. Serious changes need to happen at the Executive / VP level....snakes and atrocious personalities have poisoned the company.

401k match, work from home opportunities.

What is paid time off like at WideOrbit?

Pros

Good 401k match - sabbatical - generous time off - work/life balance

Cons

Zero growth for some groups. people have been in the same job for 10+ years with no growth (this is for the entire team) just the same few people (the managers) get better titles. Absolute boys club at the top. Manager do not advocate for their teams well.

Advice to Management

Promote from within. It's not difficult - just like when a manager receives a new title for doing the same job they have always been doing, your staff would like the same recognition of a job well done.

Does WideOrbit offer dental insurance?

Pros

As a developer, my base pay and benefits matter, but what makes a job great for me is the learning opportunities available. WO has many, many products that leverage multiple technologies and languages. There's always new things to learn and ways to grow as a developer. WO also provides (at least currently) paid subscriptions to Lynda.com for every employee. The office I work at has around 20-25 people which is great for me as it has a small company / startup feeling, while benefitting from being part of a much larger, established company. The people here are amazing. Friendly, open, honest, intelligent and helpful. However, that seems to be the overall trend within the company at large from what I've experienced. The benefits have been great. HR actually listened to our suggestions and came through to provide a very great plan, while also reducing our out of pocket expenses. Dental, vision, life, health, plenty of vacation leave, paid personal time, lots of sick leave, etc. There's always plenty of snacks, soda, sparkling water, and a super fancy coffee machine. Video games, nerf guns and other toys. Company parties are always a lot of fun here, especially thanks to our awesome home brewers who happily share! Development here has been pretty good. Management is always open to discussing process changes, new technologies, etc. I don't feel like I'm just a mindless drone carrying out programming tasks, as I've felt at other places.

Cons

Technology changes happen a bit slower than I'd like sometimes. Artwork is kinda lame.
