I have been working at NGP VAN full-time

Pros

Good mission, good products, great people, interesting work, quirky friendly culture. Hard to complain about anything.

Cons

I worry a bit about the long-term strategy of the company. You can't grow endlessly in a small niche.

Advice to Management

Circulate among the non management staff more. Have fewer meetings. Build more new products.

    I worked at NGP VAN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    By the very nature of this company's mission, everyone is very left politically and personally. Benefits were also excellent, and they can accommodate working from home really well. A significant percentage of the engineers on staff were permenant remote employees.

    Cons

    As a more mature company, I found the management structure to sometimes be overly-hierarchical and unneccarilary bureaucratic. I personally found this stifling but others may appreciate the structure. Also, I didn't negociate my salary and, retroactively, feel like I got shafted.

    Advice to Management

    Reward intelligent engineers with more responsibility and salary.

    Pros

    NGP VAN treats it's employees like gold!

    Cons

    Only specific to my project... but it hasn't been managed very well.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to impose much needed change to projects in jeopardy, whether that involves replacing PMs or not. Do what's best for the team!
