Pros

As an intern, I worked alongside the CTO, got some hands on project management experience and committed code to be used in production code bases. The work is well-defined, fast-paced and exciting. I have learned an incredible amount in my time with Rocket Wagon, in no small part due to the fact that I was given so much trust to complete the tasks assigned to me. I was allowed to learn from failure, rather than fear it. All of this together with a team that is easy to get along with make Rocket Wagon a great place to work.

Cons

As a small company, focuses change and things will come up that require shifting gears to meet new challenges. Rocket Wagon is not a place for those who wish to be told precisely what to work on every day.

Advice to Management

The small-team, senior developer-heavy work environment really seems to keep things moving quickly, and also fosters an amazing workplace to bring in and train newer developers alongside the seasoned veterans. Be careful not to lose this dynamic.

    I have been working at Rocket Wagon part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked with RW and its leadership for several years and seen they grow into a smart, transparent, fun company to work with. I am a latinamerican woman and have never felt discrimitated, on the contraty. The leadership listens and values their employees' input and contribution, regardless of who they are and where they are from.
    I hope I get to work with RW many more years. They are at the top of the list of companies I have worked with!

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing but sleep every now and then :-)
