    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Adaptik full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, nice company culture

    Cons

    bad middle management, managers are not technically sound even though its a tech company, friedns and family culture when it comes to hiring leading to a lot of technically incapable people being hired.

    Advice to Management

    Get a CTO because current tech leads are not good. Also it is a tech company. At least hire people who are technically sound and get rid of friends and family culture.

    I worked at Adaptik full-time

    Pros

    Pay is very generous. Database design was pretty cool.

    Cons

    Lack of technology leadership was disappointing. The technical thought leaders were former PHP developers unfamiliar with modern, object-oriented programming and web development.

    Advice to Management

    Get your people trained.

    Pros

    The company has a very family like atmosphere with everyone going above and beyond to help each other out. Everyone wears multiple hats which allows for growth within the organization. The management team has an open door policy and no suggestion is deemed unimportant.

    Cons

    More frequent updates from the management team would be nice, however I can't imagine working somewhere else. My coworkers are helpful and I enjoy the challenging work that I do.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent corporate updates

    I have been working at Adaptik full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome work culture, Encourage innovation and implementation of cutting edge technology, Good compensation and flexible time-off policies. If you work well, it does not go unnoticed and you are rewarded with a very flexible time-off. Very flexible scheduling and emphasis is on good work done rather than seat presence.

    Cons

    Being a small company sometimes work-life balance is affected. Especially during release times it can get very stressful. Even though you are encouraged to learn and deploy the latest technology, you never get enough time. Everything is super critical and hence you have to be constantly on your toes. Promotions are a tad bit too slow as well.

    I have been working at Adaptik full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you're willing to learn, there are a large number of extremely skilled people who are happy to share their knowledge
    The culture is one of collaboration - we are all working towards putting out a best-in-class product and everyone, from the president down, is willing to put in long hours if needed
    The company has created an atmosphere where I truly feel like my colleagues are my friends
    The daily lunches, frequent potlucks, off-site parties, and celebrations of birthdays/babies/marriages all combine to bring us together

    Cons

    Getting company-related information quickly can be difficult at times

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to see senior management show more willingness to share information around where we might be struggling in the market and what plans have been made to alleviate/ameliorate those struggles

    Pros

    Work Life Balance
    Flexibility and Laid Back Environment
    Free Lunch and Decent benefits

    Cons

    Lower Pay
    No Career Advancement
    Poor HR Policies (there is no HR at all except for 1 person who handles everything from payroll to ordering lunch

    Advice to Management

    i) Create Opportunities for people to grow
    ii) Make manager accountable for their actions (as I don't think anybody has any oversight as to how Managers are treating their team members)
    iii) Don't make fake promises of bonus in offer letter when you can't afford them
    iv) Hire some fresh blood and remove incompetent managers
