What is paid time off like at WideOrbit?

Pros

Great benefits package and flexible on time off. Positive work environment. Coworkers are eager to help you learn and grow. Opportunities to advance your career. Many employees have been with the company for a long time. Flexibility to work from a home office or from a WideOrbit office. Management is top notch. They are eager to help and listen to their teams well.

Cons

Internal workflows and processes can be a little unclear. Product teams/department are fairly silo'd in their business (but this has been made a priority to address).

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your team's input and implementing more efficient operations. It helps drive success for customer satisfaction!

Does WideOrbit offer massages?

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.
