Pros

The co-workers are good people.
Decent benefits from being a subsidiary of a bigger company

Cons

Have to live with the CEO's pet peeves, including strict 9-5 "flex hour" work day and odd pet peeves (They have a camera mounted to point at the kitchen sink. I kid you not).
CEO is fairly clueless about the underlying technology.
Commute into Bethesda to meet 9-5 schedule is a pain.
EVP announced that the office was open after a snow storm, and none of the executive team showed up to the office.
CEO hired his kid as an intern for the summer. Nepotism, anyone?

Advice to Management

Get a real CEO that has real management experience.
CEO should stop using the company/office as his own personal place. It's owned by Duchossois group.

    I worked at Brivo full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people that work at Brivo are dedicated, smart and hardworking. It's those individuals that keep the company going. The office is located in an area with places to walk to which is helpful when you need to leave the building to escape from what can often be a stressful environment.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership/poor management - The company's objectives are unclear and constantly change causing frustration.
    High turnover rate - Employees are taken advantage of, tasked with unreasonable expectations and unappreciated.
    Lack of benefits - no 401K or bonuses.
    Unethical - Beware of the 5 star reviews on Glassdoor. They are fake reviews posted to maintain high ratings.

    Advice to Management

    Saying the right thing and doing it are two completely different things. Look beyond your inner circle and listen to your employees because they are unhappy. Fix the company culture before you lose top talent that is under valued.
