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

Pros

Young people believe that they can change the world ! Lol. But all they do are adapting to Google Search algorithm to get their pay show on top of the search.

Happy hour ( drinking ) every Fri at 4PM. Some food in the fridge.

Cons

Cheap pay, mainly just good for recent college graduation. High rate of turnover. Old technologies. Senior tech people don't know enough/don't have industrial experience.

If you can hangout/go to the bar with your co-workers several times/week, you are good to go. If you are not that kind of people, i am not so sure.

    I worked at Remilon full-time

    Pros

    They hire directly out of college and especially in this economy it is nice to have a job with benefits. Middle management is often responsive to ideas and feedback.

    Cons

    Management is completely inaccesible. They throw around buzz words constantly like innovation, no red tape and collaboration but rarely follow through with any of their supposed company goals. They make you hate fridays because every few months they do a massive purging and fire people out of the blue.

    Furthermore people are shamed for leaving for almost any reason (including family reasons, graduate school and jobs more in line with their interests). The pay is distinctly not competitive and they do no budge an inch when negotiating even when challenged with specific salary data.

    They have ridiculous "bonus" schemes and expect an extreme amount of loyalty to a brand where employees don't have stock benefits or competitive salaries. Upper Management takes home an extreme amount of profits but does not share it with employees and exhibit EXTREME favoritism. Upper management does not seem to care about high turnover and extremely low morale. Any hint of looking at other jobs is met with extreme suspicion which makes for an anxious workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to learn that just because they say they are "a start-up" does not make them one and neither does one drink fridge. A state-up should be a dynamic place to work where people do not feel pressured to do work in a bureaucratic way and want to be at work because they enjoy what they're doing.

    Instead of just thinking that one "fun" activity a quarter is sufficient they should look at restructuring the company to make it transparent and encourage people to be hones without fear of retribution.

    I have been working at Remilon full-time

    Pros

    Remilon offers some unique perks and opportunities:

    * The company itself is doing very well and is constantly growing / expanding
    * Happy hour on fridays, drink cart on Thursdays, fully stocked kitchen
    * Most fridays you can work on whatever you want
    * (Most) coworkers are very smart, very motivated people that are easy to work with
    * You have the choice on what projects you want to work on
    * You get to work on new and exciting technologies
    * Competitive salary and benefits
    * Still has that startup feel without the startup worries.

    Unlike many other companies, Remilon lacks a lot of red tape and welcomes new ideas to make things run more smoothly.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but Remilon is for smart, hard-working people who like working with other, similar people. For newbies, you will need to work very hard to get up to speed quickly, or you will likely drown.

    The company is still young, and there's still a ways to go with regards to infrastructure and processes (qa, working from home, team management, etc.).

    The workforce at Remilon is also very young (many straight out of college). At time there can be a distinct lack of maturity and social graces.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management feels "disconnected" from the rest of the company. They will bark ideas and values from above, but they do not take the time to really connect with their employees and convince them to get on board. My manager rarely provides feedback or guidance, and what feedback is given can sometimes feel rushed and/or contrived.
