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

Pros

Ability to try out different older technologies
Ability to work with code written by many former employees with little or no time to achieve them

Cons

Poor sub standard hardware
Hostile environment consisting of yelling when issues occur as incentive to do better
Difficult employees who are not open to discussing problem rather to assess blame

    Pros

    Very dynamic and upbeat work environment. Overall policies and rules are straightforward and fair and there isn’t any second guessing what’s expected from you. The pay is in line with other high tech companies and paid on time. The hours are fair, benefits, and time off are superior to most employers. The company also offers the most generous health and dental insurance program I have seen anywhere. Also, it isn’t uncommon to see someone with the company, for less than full year, take advantage of their full vacation time. Family emergency issues are always respected as a first priority. Each employee is considered a valued team member. I am motivated by the daily team challenge to make it all happen. I for one, enjoy using my brain and can take pride in my accomplishments.

    Cons

    Expectations are very high. You have to work…and a high level of energy and performance is expected from everyone on the team every day. This is not the type of company where you can only pretend you know what you’re talking about or doing. This being the case, it is definitely not a good environment for people who want to sit in a corner and waste away the day. Demonstrating a high work ethic is expected from all team members. Nothing less than a self motivated responsibility to perform and produce excellent work is accepted. Most quality tech companies are actually run this way. In today’s economy, no can tolerate a free ride with unexcused time off.. If you’re not built for speed this isn’t the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing; embrace and reward your performers and let the bad apples go when they deserve it.

    Pros

    reasonable pay but not exceptional. Small company, easy to get to know everyone.

    Cons

    Certain individuals here had serious anger management issues, creating a very hostile working environment with poor communication. The computers were cheap, old and frequently crashed but they wouldn't invest in new equipment. They put little time into long-term fixes for issues in the code, always looking for an emergency, quick-fix, so the things we were building wound up being very poorly designed and difficult to work with. Management claimed to know a lot more about coding processes than they actually did.

    Advice to Management

    Calm down, treat everyone with respect and focus on what you're trying to do.
