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

Pros

The health, well-being and happiness of the employees is a top priority. Salaries are competitive and the benefits are excellent: 12 PTO days, 8 holidays and 2 weeks vacation (increases over time). The environment is relaxed and it's easy for the lowest level employee to get feedback to upper management. It's friendly with employees eating and chatting together throughout the day. They are very cognizant of recognizing employees that go the extra mile and will reward hard workers.

Cons

Some of the code is a little dated. We're still working with flash and some departments need to support IE6. The company has grown a lot in the last year, so office space has become tighter over time.

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

    Pros

    The development team consists of knowledgeable programmers. You can easily talk to
    Your manager. Great benefits and perks. The company continues to grow at a fast rate.

    Cons

    Not much to
    Say other than - Remove all employees who constantly complain and bring other employees down. Constructive criticism is always best.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire newbies with limited experience as they can be a detriment. Continue with the perks and awesome benefits.

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Accretive Technology Group is a great place to rest and vest. The main benefit to this company is the unlimited 50% matched 401k plan that vests over 5 years. I would only recommend this company to experienced engineers who want a break from a demanding job and plan on staying for the full 5 years.

    Cons

    Nothing gets fully done. There are overly ambitious quarterly goals which only get partially done at best. Then the next quarterly initiative will begin without tying up loose ends from the previous quarter. As a result, the company only produces half finished products that nobody like/uses/maintains. New problems get introduced every quarter without resolving problems from the previous quarter.

    Compensation is low but is to be expected because of the lower than average bar. Bonuses are much lower than average. Raises and promotions take a long time to process.

    Advice to Management

    Rock stars generally go to Google/Facebook/etc. You need to realize this isn't a company of rock stars. It's mostly people who either couldn't get a job elsewhere or people who want to rest and vest. Tailor expectations accordingly. Stop making overly ambitious goals that most people know can't be met. When goals aren't met, it's not enough to just learn lessons from the failures. Start APPLYING those lessons the next quarter as well.

    Reward good employees with prompt raises or bigger bonuses. Getting shout outs in blog posts is patronizing.
