What are perks and other benefits like at WideOrbit?

Pros

WideOrbit has been at the forefront of innovation and evaluating clients' needs. They are constantly assessing and providing ways to serve the clients better. WideOrbit has a plethora of great people who work hard and love what they do. WideOrbit invests in a Diversity and inclusion initiative because they understand the value of having a diverse workforce. The Diversity and Inclusion Committee will bring in guest speakers or have open discussions on various topics. The benefits and perks at WideOrbit are phenomenal; they are unlike any other company I have worked for before. WideOrbit offers remote work options and great health benefits. They even offer monthly wellness seminars! WideOrbit also offers competitive compensation, and the recruitment team is fantastic to work with.

Cons

There are many great new products and enhancing of existing products; it makes it a little challenging to keep up with all the new changes. Though it has vastly improved, some teams still work in a silo and it can appear to cause some duplicity of efforts.

Advice to Management

Transparency is key. Senior Management is doing it right by disseminating information. It makes employees more invested in the growth of the company. Please keep up the excellent work with that. Be observant of areas of the company that have more turnover. Some employees may not feel comfortable coming forth about a toxic environment so will choose to leave. Thereby losing great people who love the company, just not the environment. Continue to hire/promote great people and keep in mind that some great people have diverse backgrounds and can provide different perspectives. Keep up the great job of serving the customers! We always hear compliments about the products!

Does WideOrbit offer unlimited time off?

Pros

I love the company culture, friendly and respectful teammates. I always felt that the work I'm doing is appreciated. I have the freedom to create, design and implement world class products an features. Collaborating with people is easy and everybody is eager to help. I love the benefits package, generous holidays and vacation time. Having 4 or 5 weeks of sabbaticals every 4-5 years doesn't spoil the picture either. The company is profitable, the business and the revenue are growing, I think the company is well set for success and it's great to feel like I am contributing to that in very visible and significant ways.

Cons

I'd say the yearly bonus amount is nothing to write home about, compared to other companies I worked for, probably the only weak point in the otherwise great benefits the company provides.

Advice to Management

I believe, management should make sure people get individual attention on career planning, so that nobody feels stuck or uncertain about their path forward and is always motivated to do their best.

What is the retirement plan 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.

Good 401k match

Culture
This month’s #MeetaWideOrbiter features Francesca Gaillard: My name is Francesca and I’m a senior software engineer. I currently work on back-end infrastructure, developing services and APIs to deliver data on demand. I started at WideOrbit in 2005, did a short stint in a green startup for 2 years, then came back. I’m in San Francisco working remotely from my home in the Sunset District with views of the Pacific Ocean (when there’s no fog). What do I enjoy about working at WideOrbit? I used to joke that it was the nice espresso machine in the café (not the excessive consumption of M&Ms), but the real reason is working with a bunch of genuinely nice people – a very smart, talented, and diverse group. We have nice benefits, including company gatherings that allow people to connect more personally. We also have a Balance and Belonging team, who work to make sure diversity and inclusion are more than just words, so everyone feels welcome and valued, and a Wellness Committee to encourage healthy habits. Outside of work, playing music and spending time with family is important to me.
