    I have been working at Search Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Oh wow, where can I start?

    * Management is very supportive and honest. They are highly pragmatic and don't try to make big promises until things are set in stone
    * Peers are quite a helpful bunch - you can ask any expert around the company for help and they will answer you
    * Technology is not vendor - centric so there is a lot of cutting edge work going on
    * Career growth - you can make waves in this company, smart ideas on how to improve the projects and introduce new tools are very much welcome.
    * Great, family-like culture

    Cons

    * Interview process is very slow! All the folks I know took two months or more before they got hired. This is also a side effect of the very conservative hiring decisions (see next item)
    * Hiring decisions are made very conservatively. I'm actually somewhat in the fence on this one as to whether it's a pro or a con, but I know of some folks who may have potentially been hired but weren't due to slow decisions on the part of the company.
    * Salary and benefits are merely average
    * Institutional knowledge is very fragmented. There are many folks in the company that have knowledge of various technologies and tools, but there's no way to know unless you contact them directly or through the "ST Technical" mailing list. The Wiki is focused on internal products (Aspire, QPL). Each project has their own way of documentation which vary in quality and comprehensiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Try as much as possible to maintain the company's family-like atmosphere. As for areas of improvement, perhaps hiring decisions can be made faster and salary and benefits can be made a bit more generous.

    Pros

    The work environment in this company is quite good.
    The people is nice and there is good communication among employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long term projects with complicated clients. It should be better if there are more employee rotation in these cases
