    I have been working at Affinity Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    After working here, it can only get better. This is the rock bottom you need.

    Cons

    If you want a job where you don't have to actually produce any sort of output, this is the place to be. The only thing that matters is schmoozing up to management and agreeing to every delusion "leadership" comes up with. Your average lifespan here is very short because there are regular layoffs without any thoughts given towards resources. Technology is so old, it's a miracle anything gets done.

    Advice to Management

    You should have cut your losses a long time ago. Everyone knows the 5 star reviews here are fake but you will just keep writing them because better to appear like a legit company than actually try to be one.

    I have been working at Affinity Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most people here are very laid back. They let some people work from home all the time. There are a lot of people in upper management, so there is a good chance that you'll be promoted to VP of something if you just wait long enough.

    Cons

    There are a lot of cliques in the office. In some of the departments, there is a total lack of leadership. They can be very juvenile and exclusive. There are often times disagreements between the different groups and it's just hard to get things done in that sort of environment.

    Advice to Management

    The layoffs aren't cool. I survived this round, but who knows about the next round. Stop comparing us to bigger more successful companies. Affinity isn't Amazon or Google or Microsoft.

    Pros

    Exquisite selection of pens and manila envelopes.

    Cons

    During today's staff meeting, my soul died. I don't know how this company survived until now, but there must be some magic involved because it's definitely not know-how or talent.

    I have been working at Affinity Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) Company has lots of opportunities to grow. 2) In very few companies employees has opportunities to work on different tools and platforms, it enhances personal and professional growth. A chance to learn everything new in the market while your working, is a dream for many people and Affinity provides that. 3)Flexible timings and vacation hours.

    Cons

    Combination of bad management and very few bad employees. Same mistakes keep repeating over and over, NO ONE is interested in fixing the issues. No Subject matter experts. Everyone wants to pinch in without any knowledge. Losses every opportunity in hand because some people do not understand or forgot what was discussed earlier. Never ending discussions.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Employees : Its a start up company, everyone knows about that. When managers are allowing you to be flexible, you cannot take advantage. At least give something back to the company. Be responsible and take ownership of your tasks. Advice to Management : Don't you see the flaws in the project process or you don't want to see them? Temporary fixes to the problem and talking about it isn't the solution.... TAKE AN ACTION.

    Pros

    I’m very happy to be here. I’m learning a lot, the people are great, and the company has a strong vision. I saw some negative postings, and can only assume they’re from disgruntled former managers who were let go because of all the negativity they created at the company. Good riddance. Management cares a lot about the people here and their success.

    Cons

    I’d like to see more formal training programs, especially for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more lunch and learns. Thank you for the opportunity.
