Pros

Get to work with very smart people on a daily basis who have a lot of knowledge that they can share.

You learn a lot, and are challenged on a regular basis

Cons

The biggest downside is that there isn't always work with the company, and that sometimes a decent amount of travel is required

Advice to Management

I think what is going on now is great. Keep up the good work, and continue to share the information you have about what is going on.

    Pros

    Those who work at Pillar have good intentions and are truly smart.

    Wide variety of projects to work on, always working with new people

    Growing company

    Cons

    The following is my personal opinion from working for Pillar less than six months:

    Pillar does not uphold the values they sell to clients and prospective employees

    Pillar has grown too fast for its own good and has done so at the cost of its employee experience.

    No one really knows who does what or who has what authority at Pillar making it a complex organization of self-formed cults who run different aspects of the company.

    Pillar management seems to be under immense pressure to perform which appears to have caused them to resort to abandoning their values in order to achieve performance goals.

    In my personal opinion and experience Pillar claims that employees, their families and their career future are all highly valued yet instead of offering a a decent benefits package for this type of career (maternal/paternal leave, sick leave, decent health care, retirement savings) they spend their money on private jets for the CEO, all-company all-expense paid conferences in water-parks, office buildings with retractable roofs (think about that one for a minute) and private chefs. Pillar is a flash in the pan - all show and no substance.

    Each Pillar as a company is a collection of loosely associated office locations which are all managed differently. This is important to know because if you are ever to interview or work with a office different from your local office you should expect a completely different work experience.

    Pillar is constantly changing and they are genuinely trying to improve so it is my hope that your experience would or will be different from mine.

    Advice to Management

    The company, experience and values that you sell clients and prospective employees is great. Now it is time actually start creating the company that you claim to have already built. Stop wasting time and money on flashy things and get to the real heart of creating a top-tier software company
