I worked at Alchemy Systems full-time

Pros

Small, laid back atmosphere, friendly executives and atmosphere, well organized.. quality monthly company meetings. friendly receptionist, most employees care about the general direction of the company.

Cons

good ol boy management mentality.. takes a long time for change. Poorly run marketing department. Inconsistent management.. everyone is not treated equally. A tech company run by non tech people.. being smaller, lots of office politics and things that go on that shouldn't. run down office in comparison to other tech comapnies in Austin

    I worked at Alchemy Systems full-time

    Pros

    - Salary was reasonable for a small company.
    - CEO is very caring about employees wants everyone to do well.
    - Executives willing to listen to employees input and do well.
    - Owners are willing to help people get what they need to do their jobs and open door policy.

    Cons

    - Small company so lots of gossipy type best to keep to yourself.
    - Executives lack experience due to being a small company.
    - Business model changed directions often before things could stabilize.
    - Sometimes leadership was too nice and let mid-level management run amok rather than deal with issues right away.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to business plan and don't try to go to many directions at once. Solid smart group of technical guys but, Sales and Marketing needed much improvement at the time. Lack of experience in those areas and hopefully that has changed.
