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

    Pros

    Dynamic Owl truly does an amazing job of hiring the right people. For being a small start-up they have been able to achieve what companies of much larger magnitude have not even come close to. The company offers competitive salaries, stipends for continued learning and good health benefits. The work environment is very pleasant to work in. The fridge is always stocked with food, good coffee is endless and fun events are on the regular.

    Cons

    Possibly not a con but we are growing so fast that we need more people keep up with demand for Bonzai.

    Advice to Management

    The founders of the company are naturally very attached to the product, and company. It would be in their benefit bring a COO on board.

    Pros

    The people, the product, and the vision.

    Cons

    Hard to think of any, but if you are looking to join the team, be prepared to work more than 40 hours per week. Not really a "con" - hard work pays off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making great things happen and remember to breathe! You have created something special - be proud.

    You take ownership to projects assigned to you.
    Close knit Development Team, each individual is highly skilled in what they do.
    Tech stack is always being updated to whatever is trending.
    Amazing work environment, office is beautiful.

    Very fast paced work environment, and deadline driven.
    If you can't keep up, this is not the place for you.
    Especially with how fast the company is growing.

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I've been working in this company for more than a year now and it has been a wonderful experience so far. The founders have so much knowledge to share with us and the company may look small but every person that works here are real experts and challenging in what they do and it's growing very fast! The workplace is very relax and fun, everyone is super friendly and we enjoy going for drinks or playing Rockband once in a while.

    The founders are very supportive and accessible.

    Cons

    There is so much work to do here! but honestly, I don't think it's a bad thing... and less if the boss takes us to dinner after a week of hard work! :)

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

    Pros

    This is the first job I've had where I look forward to coming to work and seeing my co-workers. Everyone in the office is an inspiration and I learn something new every day! We have a "learning" culture that let's us grow and learn from past successes and opportunities for improvement. Every one works very hard, looks out for one another and our clients definitely notice. Team work and collaboration is very important and encouraged here so the end result for every one of our project deliverables is quality.

    Cons

    None I can think of for now! We have quick access to great coffee so that can get dangerous...

    Advice to Management

    Go home at a reasonable hour!

    Pros

    Dynamic Owl really loves what it does, its clients and also looks after its staff. Unlike some other consulting companies they really try to do amazing work every single time in an atmosphere of fun and inspiration. The people are really smart and we get to work with really challenging technology

    Cons

    SharePoint can be challenging to work with and the founders all work like crazy which can be a bit intimidating. But honestly there are no cons to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be scared of growth because everyone has a feeling that the company has a really bright future.

    Pros

    I recently been brought on at Dynamic Owl and all I can say is WOW! The founders have done a great job of creating a fun, goal orientated, dynamic atmosphere. This company knows how to take care of their employees with a strong focus on career development. It is very exciting to take on new projects while working with such versatile software. Every day is a new challenge, but the founders and CEO are there to help you every step of the way. Oh and on Friday's we have ‘Lunch and Learns' where employees get a chance to showcase what they have worked on while dining on delicious food, provided by Dynamic Owl.

    Cons

    None! As long as the coffee and tea don't run out everyone is happy.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work both on a professional and personal level. The founders are extremely knowledgeable in their areas of expertise and are open and willing to share that knowledge. It is a highly collaborative team atmosphere, with everyone sharing a common purpose, which is reflected in the quality of work produced. We take on interesting and challenging projects, which gets me excited to go to work morning.

    Oh and it is super fun!

    Cons

    Dont have a single thing to say ... Oh except I need to work out more now because the founders are big foodies and im always trying new things.

    Pros

    Great company culture, everyone who works here has a great attitude and work ethic. I find that everyone here works together really well and the founders genuinely care about all the staff. It is a smaller company at the moment (10-25 people range) and everyone who works here really is a leader in their field.

    The projects that we take on are projects we know we can deliver excellent results for meaning there is a lot less stress and we don't take on projects we don't have experience with. (unlike a lot of other companies i have worked for). Having said that the projects certainly are not boring.

    Cons

    I don't have anything to really say as a con for working here.

    The elevator in the building is scary.
