Pros

Developers have the option to "upgrade" to working remotely after 2 years in-office. Large bonuses and raises available upon completion of a project.

Cons

Organization is unstructured; there are 2 managers and everyone reports directly to one of them. Managers get into weekly screaming matches. Minimal to no guidance for junior developers. Zero transparency into the business (option to buy stock after 2 years with the company, but no one will give you details on the financials or tell you how many shares there are outstanding).

Advice to Management

If you're going to have screaming matches, at least sound insulate your offices. (Or, better yet, conduct yourselves in a calm and professional manner at all times.) Additionally, provide support (guidance, mentorship) for junior developers that have never worked on large projects by themselves.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, some really cool co-workers

    Cons

    Depending on who your manager is, you either have a micromanager with a temper, or someone who is hardly there and already mentally checked out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire additional managers.

    "Symplicity is a great place to work out of college or if working from home is important. Remote teleworking is a plus."

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility in choosing which projects to work on. You can easily reach out and connect with senior management and be heard.

    Cons

    Resources are usually stretched thin, particularly in development. Management definitely makes an effort to hire to fill gaps, but the increase in work is growing faster than the amount of resources.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs more hierarchical structure. Currently the org chart is too flat and career paths need to be outlined.
