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

Pros

REI is a gem along the beltway. I have worked at a number of different tech companies in the area and few can match this place. The grants work we do is incredibly impactful and it's typical to work very flexible hours - which is great for me and my family. I also enjoy the team I work - very friendly and reliable - along with the benefits of bagels, ping pong and Xboxes in the game room.

Cons

The company is growing pretty fast and it is hard to know folks outside of your team. More should be done at the company or project team level.

Advice to Management

Have more company events. Get more employees involved in corporate initiatives and not rely on a handful of people to lead every club and program.

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

    Pros

    Very friendly team members, supportive and understanding.

    Cons

    1. Inexperienced management. Bad planning, no value for people and hard work. Moreover, they make developers to pay for their own errors. They make you feel misarable and always judge you.
    2. A lot of overtime.
    3. A lot of actions against the labor law. Follow them or will be laid of. If you do not want to work overtime, you are not good team player.
    4. Nothing really interesting from technology side.
    5. They promote only people who they like, not who deserves promotion.
    I quit. Back to US.
