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

    Pros

    - The software and solutions are very complex and there's always learning opportunities
    - They allow you to grow in the company but there's only so much you can grow given that it is a small company

    Cons

    - Lack of team cohesion
    - Minimum communication between different departments although a small company

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your current employees

    Good environment amongst employees, terrible upper management. Stay away from marketing dept.

    WARNING: Stay away from marketing

    Change up your upper management. There are more senior exec tittles at this company then in actual multi billion dollar companies.... That should tell you something right there

    Pros

    Great company, lots of autonomy, great work / life balance. The company does care about its employees. Compensation is in line with the industry.

    Cons

    Sales cycle is long but partly the nature of dealing with large enterprise companies. new SaaS based offering will help shorten sales cycle and expand market.

    Advice to Management

    Upper mgmt should continue to reward and retain top performers while at the same time getting rid of non-performers

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology
    The culture is fairly laid-back and is pretty flexible
    There are lots of smart people who work here
    The HR team is fantastic and efficient
    Pushes employees to be their best
    Great management team

    Cons

    Sometimes there are "growing pains" as the company grows and management and departments learn how to adapt.
    People are often asked to contribute outside of their roles, this is not for everyone as some prefer more structure and more clearly defined roles.

    Advice to Management

    Y'all are doing an amazing job. Keep going.
