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.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, friendly colleagues, fair benefits. The top executives care about the employees but lately there has been a disconnect.

    Cons

    lack of planning, unrealistic and uneven task assignments, too much work, stress. Sometimes feel like learning nothing new and working exactly same things.
    Managers see-saw between being caring to mean and are overly focused on budget without focusing on proper planning and work allocation and lack the ability to motivate and utilize resources.
    Technology is outdated and people who claim to know newer technologies seldom do.
    Employees expected to work late nights and weekends frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Growing sense of insecurity distrust in some employees needs to be addressed, now. Too much negative micro management. Need to encourage employees to learn newer technologies. Work life balance needs to be improved.
