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

    Pros

    I've been working with Avenue Code for a long time and I know it's not the perfect company, just because there is no such thing as the perfect company. That said, I can't think of a better place to work.
    Pros go as:
    - Both the Brazilian and US offices are really fun places to be (the new Belo Horizonte office is just amazing!)
    - Great work-life balance.
    - Easy access to upper management.
    - Great clients with latest technologies and a lot of challenges.
    - Constantly investing in personal growth (meetups, courses, paid certifications)
    - Flexible work time
    - Opportunity to work with US clients
    And last but not least:
    - The people: From the CEO to the developers, most of them are willing to help you whenever you have a problem, share their knowledge and are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    - No 401k match.
    - Strict policy against working from home.
    - Sometimes is hard to get access to HR, and it takes a long time to answer our questions and requests.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people.

    Not only parties and perks but the small things from some of the managers and HR like answering the questions ASAP, letting people feel they are valuable to the company.

    Make sure all the managers have this profile and are able to listen and work together with the directs to solve their concerns. (Or at least give an honest feedback ASAP)

    Keep the open mind and the great work!

    Pros

    A lot of parties, fun environment, nice people, excellent tech team, good benefits

    Cons

    I feel the company don't look to the employees individually and some get some benefits that don't deserve while others don't get benefits when really deserves. It's growing too fast and has a lot of areas to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what the employees are saying. All of them.

    Pros

    The company is growing and it's great to be part of it. Teams works collaboratively and employee input is valued and appreciated.

    Cons

    There is still room to improve on processes. With constant change and growth comes new challenges - which is really an opportunity and not a con, in my point of view.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging team participation, input and feedback.

    Pros

    Management really recognize when you do a good job, other employees are usually very friendly and I was able to make real friends while working here. Good flexibility in general. Good support for career development, certifications, books, online courses. Always good company events, parties etc. In general, great place to work.

    Cons

    - Really hard to find reasons to leave ;D
    - I guess recruitment could improve a bit to reduce the amount of client incidents.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to create an Avenue Code standard on hiring and don't rush on interviews to fill a client's gap, it's not worth it.
    Get to know every employee you have, I know a lot of people who never had a chance to speak to the owners or the CEO. I think this is hard most of the times, but it adds a lot.

    I have been working at Avenue Code full-time

    Pros

    We get to be hands-on with cutting edge technologies at leading e-commerce companies, and get to work with a diverse, multi-national group of folks.

    Our style places strong attention to proper Agile and DevOps methodologies without being too rigid in theory. It's all about delivery, which makes the team more productive and pleased with the results.

    There’s a real investment in nurturing and developing the consulting staff through frequent training opportunities and shared learnings. Nothing beats the real world experience we get day in/day out, though.

    Cons

    As a boutique agency, the Avenue Code name may not resonate across the industry as much as the larger firms, but in many ways that’s better once the personal attention is recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build and enhance the company brand to empower the consulting staff who are working with clients.
