    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Digitalsmiths full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart engineers, laid-back environment, lots of variation in the work.

    Cons

    Deals often seem to take an extremely long time to go from "we got this" to "closed"

    Advice to Management

    It'd be nice if there was less of a wait between being told we have a new deal and closing the deal and seeing the work - either don't talk about it so early, or work on closing them more quickly.

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

    Pros

    I did forge a few friendships there. standard issue start-up bonuses (sodas, coffee, lunch, donuts)

    Cons

    clique-ish, quick to layoff/fire, high turnover, +40 hour work week, back-stabbing (which sometimes leads to the turnover)

    Advice to Management

    Support ALL your employees.

    "A dictatorship, good for delivery but not so good for ideas."

    Pros

    There "were" some brilliant software engineers working at this company.

    Cons

    Engineering management is pushy and abusive. You will need to cater to egos in order to make progress in this company.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a better place to work if an openess towards ideas was extended across the entire engineering staff, rather than placing the company in the hands of the established favorites.
