    People are very smart and nice. The leadership seems to really care about its employees and provides great benefits, solid compensation. The field of technology is very interesting and what has been built is rock solid.

    Need to innovate faster and come out with new products.

    Advice to Management

    Create a small R&D team that can focus on nothing but new technologies and products.

    I worked at Basis Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small team working in an agile environment, flex hours and vacation, competitive salary, free lunches and breakfasts occasionally, willing to give you real responsibility

    Cons

    My experience is skewed - I was told I would be working on digital forensics software, but ended up working on the testing suite the entire time. I did not end up working on what I was told I would or what I signed up for, so I was rather disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    While I know that the work I did was valuable, make sure that the work coops do is in line with what they are told they would do. I brought this up several times to my manager and it never changed.

    I worked at Basis Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some very smart, creative and interesting people in this company. The culture is relatively laid back and there are little perks that are quite nice e.g. providing lunch, the monthly masseuse visit. The technology is interesting and solves some important data related problems.

    Cons

    Not sure where this company is going. At times it felt like a ship without a captain.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what the goal is. Find someone who has achieved that goal for other small companies (preferably multiple times). Hire them. Let them steer the ship.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay and a lot of care for the Engineering departments.
    Coworkers in the engineering side of the company are bright and friendly.

    Managers have a "legacy" mindset and are ultra resistant to change. There is a lot of emphasis on hierarchy, so if you like to have your ideas listened to good luck

    Advice to Management

    Set up a more open structure and listen to your employees.
