Pros

Generally, the compensation package is very good, including some unique benefits. Many of the facilities are quite nice and, in general, their policies look good on paper. Most of the day to day services are provided in a very timely manner.

Cons

The culture is very unusual and they fire people at the drop of a hat. When you interview they'll tell you they have a very low turnover rate. But in the first year I worked there, over 20 people were let go. After I left, a bunch of the developers were laid off too. It seems to be one of two things. Either you fit in and you'll be very happy there or you won't fit in and you'll be out of job pretty quickly. Also, the management doesn't seem to have ever taken any professional development.

Advice to Management

Don't take people's jobs so lightly. Make more allowances for different personality types. Value diversity, don't fire people for it. And get all of the managers some management training.

    I have been working at Minitab full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and great coworkers

    Cons

    Limited opportunity unless you are "in"
    Talent has been jumping ship
    Opts for contractors and outside hires rather than advancement within

    Advice to Management

    Selective advancement and opportunity is a negative on potential talent. Requests for assignment based on skill set and career growth repeatedly ignored.
