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

    Pros

    The mission and ambition of the company is infectious. Lots of good people that want the organization to be it's best, willing to put in the work and help each other out.

    Cons

    Moving at a very fast pace, process and resources struggle to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Help everyone focus on what is most important... make hard decisions to say "no" to good things that are not highest priority or don't have resources to be done well.

    Pros

    Tech company that focuses on having "fun" at work.

    Cons

    For most, this company is just a stepping stone in your career. I'm not sure how to get promotions at this company but I do know that working hard and having a measurable impact on the company's bottom line is not highly weighted. If you are lucky, management will create positions for you and promote you to one of these positions without an interview or any open competition. However, this right is reserved for a select few. I can't really see a pattern or best approach for being one of these luck employees. Their quality of work and contribution to the company vary.

    Advice to Management

    There is so much that needs to change.

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, very flexible work schedule.

    They allow you to work with manly new technologies and give you the training to keep up to date with the ever changing world of software engineering.

    The work from home policy is great as well.

    Cons

    Management sometimes cares more about strict deadlines for clients than actually making sure the product is the best it can be.

    Pros

    Valuable lesson about corporate culture and structure.

    Cons

    Behind the times in software engineering. Leadership doesn't foster technical innovation. They sell development hours for inconsequential custom work to keep afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback of employees. Nothing changes no matter how loud employees complain.

    I have been working at CivicPlus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people
    Flexible work schedule (able to work from home if needed)
    Casual attire
    Opportunities for growth
    Office amenities

    Cons

    For a company that really tries to focus on retaining great employees, their benefits package is a little lacking. Good basics like health care, 401k, etc. but not many "oh wow" benefits that really make you feel valued for staying
    Consistency on how employees are treated across departments is severely lacking.
    Hard to take actual vacation time then it feels you are wasting your days and not actually relaxing

    Advice to Management

    Make sure every department is providing the same benefits and resources to their team

    Pros

    Free drinks, bagels and donuts. Being able to dress casual is pretty great and lets not forget Patti the office dog!

    Cons

    Change is our middle name. If you can't handle frequent change, this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    Nice office perks, colorful atmosphere, casual dress code.

    Cons

    No work life balance, no clearly defined expectations, lack of singular voice from management, no accountability for upper management, no processes outlined and no organization. Basic things you would expect from a 15+ year old company are lacking. Still running like a 2 year old start up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. They are telling you what they need to succeed and no one listens.

    I have been working at CivicPlus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am a fairly recent hire within 1 yr. It has been such a great experience so far. The hire process was smooth, all online, and they communicated very well. The company itself is very open and transparent with its employees. Coming from a company that wasn't this is very refreshing. They trust me to do my job and do not micro-manage my decisions. Most decisions I make and just report that I made them. Also, they have made a company stance towards a leadership and company development process and are actively working towards it.

    Cons

    -The 90 company waiting period for benefits is a little long. But just my opinion.
    -Only 15 days of PTO a year for vacation and sick time. Makes it a bit hard with kids. Do have the option to work from home on days but can still be hard to manage only 15 days for both.
