    I have been working at Case Commons full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is solid and challenging. The pace is reasonable. The people are amazing. Not too much politics. Mostly fun. Lots of women and it isn't at all bro-y.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Decisions can be slow. We don't have enough time to iterate. Our clients don't really understand products and technology.

    Advice to Management

    We need more time to iterate and more resources to deal with debt. We should shift resources from new features to revisiting existing ones.

    I worked at Case Commons full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work makes you feel good about yourself and what you are doing. The people around you are generally young, talented and driven to do good in the world. The technology used is far better than your usual non profit.

    Cons

    The company has a divide between the technical team and upper management. There is a lack of clarity and direction - future goals of the company are murky and always shifting. Such is the nature of being a government contractor, but it can definitely get old.

    The mission is great. The people are smart and nice. There is always something interesting to do.

    Cons

    They don't have bonuses and stock.

    Pros

    This company has the unique combination of extraordinary talent and heart. The leadership sets the tone for the entire organization with their passion for change and the whole team rallies behind them to deliver leading edge technology and domain expertise to expertly guide customers to successful deployments of Casebook. After nearly 20 years in HHS technology for government, I am relieved and thrilled to work for an organization that delivers on its promises to customers by focusing on great user experience, data-informed decision-making and a tangible return on investment. This company is going to shake-up the business as usual, high-priced, low value, cumbersome technology currently being offered to HHS agencies!

    Cons

    Like all upstart, rapid-growth technology companies, there is more to do on a daily basis than one can get one's head around. But, the commitment level of the staff and the can-do, stay-late-to-get-it-done attitude is infectious and hugely satisfying. This team never disappoints, even if it's incredibly tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. This ship is sailing in the right direction.

    Cons

    Long term planning sometimes suffers due to short term needs.

    Pros

    Smart people, working for a great cause, well funded non-profit, excellent environment and teamwork are highly prized. Agile work processes encourage consistent and regular improvements that can be tracked on a daily and weekly basis.

    Cons

    Still immature in fully implementing processes and not sure if the solutions will be implemented due to public policy decisions outside the company's control.

    Pros

    Wonderful people. Powerful mission. Really interesting and challenging work. It is a good place to come to work everyday - never have the Monday morning blues.

    Cons

    So much to do; not enough time to get it all done. We need more people or more focus. Working with government clients can be hard.

    Advice to Management

    Figure how to prioritize better so we can stay focused. More discipline.
