I have been working at REI Systems full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours -- come in whenever you want (within reason, earlier than 10:30 am, etc) and do your work and 8 hours and you're good.
Great facilities (new building) -- well lit and comfortable.
Nice benefits -- decent 401k matching, good healthcare, etc.

Cons

Sometimes cheap -- won't pay any sort of overtime, but WILL dock your pay if you're under 80 hours (biweekly). Pretty much never provides free gifts, lunches, etc.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to spend a bit extra money on projects to achieve excellence!

    I worked at REI Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A growing company with many project

    Cons

    Totally under staffed and real inexperienced management. Most of the line managers are from India with hardly any American work experience or knowledge of US labor laws.

    At the time of interview, they will be really nice to you but when you actually start working for them, they will expect you to work every night as well as weekends. These managers will not ask you if you are busy during he nights or weekends, they will simply tell you that you need to get the work done during nights or weekends. No apology for asking you to work during the nights or weekends, they will simply require you to work when the managers want.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional managers with American experience. make sure they have the knowledge of local labor laws. This company can do really well if the Top management tries to actually find out why so many good people leave this company. It is not if but when someone will sue them for forcing employees to work for 16 hours a day but paying only for 8 hours a day. This is a very unprofessional company.

    I have been working at REI Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are friendly, Very relaxed on hours, Quarterly events to raise moral

    Cons

    Unrealistic deadlines with constant changes, very difficult to debug company standard platform

    Advice to Management

    Drop a few projects. Quit expanding. Learn to fix the scaffolding at the bottom of the building before trying to go higher, otherwise the fall will be much greater. Pay more attention to the developers and less to the customer.
