    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time (Less than a year)


    At Symplicity, it really feels like a family. From my first day, people have been really welcoming and eager to help. It's a relatively small company (200 or so employees) with many young employees and it still has a bit of a start-up feel so it's very more laid-back. If you are in the Arlington office, we tend to play music all day on the speakers, get free snacks, play ping pong, and do social activities on Fridays. The company is also very big on diversity as we've been expanding our business internationally and work with folks from all types of backgrounds - probably my favorite part about working here. There aren't that many layers of management and you get exposure to C-suite execs from day one. On my first day, the CEO proactively came over to my desk to introduce himself. You also get a lot more recognition for your work since everyone has a specific function in the team and we are very big about recognizing our achievements. The work/life balance is also a big plus!


    Communication across team could be improved. There is often a discrepancy between the tech and sales side of the business, which can make sticking to deadlines and getting buy-in a bit challenging. Salary could also be more competitive for the DC area.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for teams to communicate better with each other. I realize their is a love/hate relationship with email and meetings, but often it's better to ensure that employees are included in communications in order to do their jobs better.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Symplicity Corporation.


    Generally they take 2-3 rounds but took only one round with me, asked general questions like program to find a number is prime or not and how I get the latest trends and news about technology. Recruiters asked me for referrals the very same day and offered me job within 1 or 2 weeks
