I have been working at SHYFT Analytics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good client opportunities
Small company size allows you to contribute immediately
Decent work-life balance
A few good people scattered here and there in the company
Generally everyone is very nice
Lots of informal company outings, after work happy hours

Cons

Internal processes are typical of a small sized company. Processes are not always clearly defined and sometimes chaotic.
No training opportunities
Favoritism with double standards and highly political environment - infighting, backstabbing, sycophants
Promotions given to those who think the same way management does
Incompetent managers are there because they play the game or have been there for a long time, not because they are subject matter experts. The organic nature of the company's growth has resulted in very poor management. They have little, if any, experience outside of Trinity. Coupled with the extremely strong personality/management style (not leadership) of the VP's, the overall managerial stance is passive-aggressive toward employees.The end-result is a group of emasculated managers who will make false, lofty promises, say whatever it takes to avoid conflict with employees while capitulating to irrational directions handed down from the top.

Advice to Management

Have an eye for bad management behavior and do something to get rid of people who are self-serving, dictatorial, and promote a disrespectful atmosphere toward employees. Pay attention to the lowest levels of the company who go unheard.

    Pros

    A good place to start working without too much experience.

    Cons

    Salaries not competitive, so after a while if you are aggressive to earn more, then maybe difficult to stay long.

    Pros

    The people at SHYFT are the best part (by leaps and bounds). Young culture with lots of raw energy. The opportunity for growth and learning is mediocre, but it is up to the individual to seek it out (some of this is being absorbed as the company moves towards productizing). Products are awesome and have enormous potential to make an impact in the market, but remain untested. Pay is okay. Benes are great.

    Cons

    The company is going through a ‘transformation phase’, which means that talent is leaving and the company is grasping at straws to keep people as business objectives proceed. The company is not operating efficiently and there is very little collective experience (the exception being higher ups). Young culture translates to lots of fooling around. Transparency is okay. The need to know info is shared, but rumor mills run strong. I am not sure that the current business model and market potential warrants added growth.

    Advice to Management

    Mitigate gossip and poor attitudes. Stimulate and challenge the minds of your employees and provide them with the opportunity to learn. Right the customer side of the company and get those awesome products into the hands of customers!
