I worked at Forio full-time

Pros

Most of the team is extremely bright and fun to work with. Everyone is skillful at what they do, which counts for a lot.

Cons

The product isn't very cutting edge and the code base seems to be a bit of a mess. You'll work at lot of hours.

    I worked at Forio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The developer team is open and even eager to use new technology. If you are interested in experimenting with new frameworks and javascript libraries, you'll get support and interest from others.

    Forio has the structure and size of a startup, but without the instability. Projects are collaborative across teams. People like to work with each other.

    Cons

    A relatively unstructured environment can be a double-edged sword depending on your personality. Nobody is going to give you a checklist on how to do your job well. This isn't a con if you're comfortable with ambiguity and want to take your role by the reigns, but if you're used to highly defined tasks you may feel a bit overwhelmed.

    The small team size can mean that you have to work on several projects at once.

    Advice to Management

    Give developers clear opportunities for growth and what the future looks like if you succeed in your role.


  2. "Good place to work"

    Pros

    Very nice people, quiet atmosphere. If you're looking for non-stop excitement this is not the place for you, but if you're interested in a minimum of chaos so you can concentrate on getting your work done, this is the right place for that.

    Cons

    Small company, so not a lot of room for advancement. Depending on your goals, that may be okay.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider turning off the music that plays quietly in the background. It is not particularly intrusive, but not to everybody's taste.
