Current Employee - Database Administrator in Salt Lake City, UT
Current Employee - Database Administrator in Salt Lake City, UT

Approves of CEO

Pros

work/life balance
compensation is top notch
employee skill level is higher than average with many top talents in the industry
Management is knowledgeable and they make good decisions for what's best for the company as a whole and not just individual teams or departments.

Cons

Sometimes I think that management sets a goal or specific criteria to meet and then all decisions are based on meeting that goal even if it isn't the best thing to do. They become paralyzed from doing anything that might interfere with the all mighty goal they have set and therefore make stupid decisions instead of making smart and calculated risks ignoring the benefits to be had.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing - its working!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent location, recognized name, young employee base, and opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Pay compensation is low and often varies depending on who is the manager in charge. Wish some areas of the leadership chain were stronger.

    Advice to Management

    Might be a good idea to give anonymous surveys from time to time to poll the staff about ideas. Would love to see a tuition reimbursement program set up for those wanting to pursue higher education.

    Pros

    Lots of additional training . Opportunities to learn about new technology. Decent tools to do your job. My direct management understands my work.

    Cons

    Growing too fast. Not a directed enough promotion or career path. Lots of stuff falls through the cracks especially after the "core" responsibilities are taken care of. Developers are somewhat separated from the nuts a bolts (both good and bad)

    Advice to Management

    More directed career paths. Develop a wider technology focus or if that is already wide publicize it more. Keep up the good work.
