I have been working at MicroPact full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company was founded is run by CEO Kris Collo and CTO Mike Cerniglia. Both are young, bright, rational, generous and fair. The company pays 100% of premiums for an excellent healthcare plan -- that alone is worth at least an extra $10K in salary. The work environment is casual, friendly and fun. Catered breakfast is provided every Thursday. All employees are issued iPads as standard equipment. The company is in the process of building out an aggressive telework program, and it's easy to work from home whenever convenient. The company provides generous gifts and bonuses at the end of the year.

Cons

The company added more than 50 employees in 2012. This has left the headquarters a little overcrowded. There are a very limited number of offices. The open floor plan of the office can make for a noisy work environment with limited personal space. There are few meeting rooms, which although occasionally inconvenient tends to discourage unnecessary meetings.

Advice to Management

Kris & Mike - Never change. You've gotten where you are by being genuine, down-to-earth, and very generous. At times you seem slightly out-of-step with the rest of corporate America... stay that way, it's what makes you great.

    Pros

    Professional services group and HR are good to work with.

    Cons

    They use "family" environment a lot but its not. CEO and senior management monitor your office activities(who you talk to, when you come to office/leave, internet and corporate email). Although they have grown in number of employees, they behave like a tiny company. SVP and Director of Sales control everything. Account exec have no real authority or control.

    Whatever they say about flexible environment during interview process is not correct. Also do not believe what Sales management says potential for commissions.

    Pros

    Full benefits package. Work consists primary of developing on their software platform that is easy to use and versatile. Primary languages used is (in the order of least used to heaviest used) Velocity, Java, Javascript, and SQL.

    Cons

    Office politics. Communication between employees minimal. A fast growing company that may or may not be able to support the expansion due to a loose management hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.
