    I have been working at SilkRoad Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't understand the bad reviews...This company is amazing if you like a challenge and enjoy problem solving with a team. The management here truly cares about their team and treats us well. I would not recommend this company for someone who is more traditional. This company is as close as you're going to get in Jacksonville to the Google, Blizzard, Microsoft, and Apple style companies. If you are a millennial who wants the ability to be creative and problem solve then this is the company for you. Also, there is a lot of opportunities to advance within the company. The pay is nice, and they also have an ESOP plan so if you want to own a piece of the company before it becomes an IPO this is an excellent opportunity. You get to work from home occasionally, and there is no limit on PTO time....You can take PTO whenever it's available as long as there is proper staffing and you get your job done. Weekends Off, 8-5 Mon-Fri. Another thing.....The culture here is amazing, I felt like I was at home my very first week....everyone is super friendly.

    P.S. You cannot slack off when it's GO time....Some days are slow, but some days are busy...and you have to grind.

    Cons

    No 401k matching (But the pay makes up for it) and no healthy rewards. I don't know what else can be listed as a con....Traffic sucks?

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The job can be stressful at times, but you guys make it easier with outstanding leadership skills. Management has been so good here that most of my stress comes from the thought of disappointment, not the amount of work.

    Interview

    Typical interview with some scenarios presented (how do you handle a difficult client, what type of animal you would be if you were an animal and why etc. Don't pick a bat - there is a story there, but, if I tell it I will no longer be anonymous. Owl is a good answer (wise).
