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

    Pros

    Great company, flexible, opportunities for growth. Allows telecommuting, good work environment. Management has open door policy. Employs people who have each other's back.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by a larger company which caused it to lose it's small, family-owned feel. There is some nepotism, but that's just life.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to employees what is going on with contracts and where the company is headed from here on out. Give promotions and jobs based on qualifications not because a certain employee is a manager's son or daughter.

    I worked at Edaptive Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I spent most of my time out of the office at a client site, but found that the company was made up of nice and considerate people. Good benefits and great work-life balance. Management is transparent and there are regular town halls to keep everyone informed.

    Cons

    Even though transparency was key, it seemed people jumped ship to other projects on the slightest bit of uncertainty which could result in lack of project continuity.

    Advice to Management

    None. I had never worked for such an open company before and it found I very refreshing! Tone was set at the top and middle managers in turn were also open and direct.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, telecommuting policy, generous amount of PTO, Very nice office environment, free soda & coffee, Gym in building, Subway in building, competitive salaries, family friendly company

    Cons

    Rely on government contracts for job security, corporate staff are distant and sometimes very impersonal and insensitive. Contract issues on my project lead to a layoff massacre of the team I worked on. Over 100 employees laid off. Good severance package, but I was laid off via an email Spam. Not one person from HR even spoke to me to explain to me that I was laid off, why, etc. I had no ability to ask any questions. Made me feel like the several years I worked there meant nothing to them.

    Advice to Management

    Even if it takes a little bit more effort, have respect when laying someone off. It's a hard thing to deal with from both sides and a little bit of respect can go a long way. DO NOT send someone an email from an HR email (not even a specific person) to lay them off. It's cold and rude.

    Pros

    This company practiced what it preaches and truly cares about process improvement, investing in employee personal and professional growth and treats every employee with respect.

    Cons

    Healthcare contributions could be better. Telecommuting policy could be a little more relaxed. Cross contract interaction is limited. It would be nice to have more of that.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, work life balance, social activities - free sodas and juice, coffee and tea. Pizza once a month, picnic in the summer

    Cons

    Training is poor. It is limited to what your manager is willing to pay from the project budget and not company overhead. People are hired who do not have the required skills.

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, remote work available for when you need to, low amount of politics, free sodas, pizza day once a month

    Cons

    Company is in awkward transition phase from a small to medium sized company, quality of work varies greatly project to project. It is government work so you get all of the usual crap that goes along with it (not Edaptive's fault though). Some employees think they are above company policy and do not have to follow it

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better. You always get what you pay for in life...

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

    Pros

    Fabulous work-life balance. Ability to work from home. Flexible work hours. Free covered parking. Gym located in building and membership is subsidized by company. 401K participation with company matching starts from first day of work. PTO is generous-with ability to buy an extra week.

    Cons

    Employees have to pay for training outside of the office and use their own PTO in most cases. This does not encourage personal professional growth. Bonuses are low or non-existent.
