    I have been working at Demandware full-time

    Pros

    everyone is hard workers with great attitude. there is no hierarchy barrier in day to day communication. I hardly see politics within the company.
    It is growing so fast and people are up beat to grow further

    Cons

    You feel the growth pain. It's been growing so fast you need to expect certain amount of over time and your day will be intensely busy. Company recognized it and working on this issue, but implementation will take more time

    Advice to Management

    need close look on day to day operation side and give more guidance on how to deal with this growth pain. majority of employees are feeling need more conference rooms, it support etc etc.. these small issues needs to be addressed and taken care of for the employees to focus what management want us to focus.

    Pros

    Overall, the company is great to work for:

    There's interesting work (usually)
    There's a lot of great people
    They work hard to keep morale high - company events, "Thirsty Thursdays" (once a month), etc.

    Cons

    * Not all managers are created equal - sometimes the folks in management positions need a bit more training, other times they need more authority to really be able to be effective
    * The interesting work can vary a bit by department, so some departments are more interesting than others.

    I worked at Demandware (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Environment was awesome. People loved to have fun and the office was incredible. Need to meet word minimum so here are more words.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement or matching on the 401k when I was there. Another word minimum requirement so here you go.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really. Company was fast paced but was exciting time to work there so keep it fun and not like a big corporation. Left for reasons not related to job or company.

    Slow movement for a company of this size. The power structure is a bit slanted at times.

    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

    I worked at Demandware as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Always providing fun activities and lunches, catered events. The people are friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    Not always the best communication between departments, projects seem to get started and not always followed through on, overall the company seems to have grown so fast the organization isn't always up to speed

    Advice to Management

    Need a better system to share files, Xchange is horrible and impossible to find all the available information out there.

    Pros

    Great product and fast growing company. Many really exciting brands as customers. Company invests a lot in the culture and making their employees happy.

    Cons

    Some growing pains - communication is not great, specifically within certain departments. A relatively small company but often feels like there is more red tape than companies 10x the size.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on communication - it is key to the company's success and employees' happiness.
