    Pros

    Friendly environment, good managers and strong clients. Avenue Code is a great place to start your career and being exposed to different clients. The staff is great and you will definitely learn a lot.

    Cons

    Unclear career path. Its hard to know how to grow and what to expect next. The company is still figuring out how to deal with its own growth and that causes some uncertainty and lack of structure.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you communicate in a clear way what is expected, what are the next steps and how to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Great people! All have terrific attitudes, sense of humor, and desire to learn/teach.
    Communication has improved dramatically with quarterly town hall meetings and weekly company minutes.
    Probably the best reputation in the industry and long list of satisfied clients, including all of the eCommerce giants.
    Very good benefits and competitive compensation.
    Opportunities for career advancement, education, and specialization.
    Very stable -- low turnover for on-site consultants.
    Ability to switch between clients as desired.

    Cons

    No 401K match. Privately held company/no ESOP. Higher turnover in office staff. Company policy against WFH, due to past abuses. (I happen to like working in the client's office but a more flexible policy would be nice.)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Love being a part of the AC family.

    Grasping at straws here... OK, I've got one. Each week, I have to fill out TWO separate online time cards. Really, can't complain about too much!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! I applaud their effort to extend their business into industries beyond eCommerce.
