Pros

* Management and supervisors who care about their employees
* Small company with opportunities to make a real difference
* Casual but hard-working company culture
* Open communication from bottom up
* Above-average raises and bonuses

Cons

Some growing pains as the company has tripled in size, resulting in ghettoized product lines with inconsistent and sometimes haphazard interoffice communication.

Advice to Management

Think more long term and encompassing rather than being immediately reactive to a single complaint or suggestion.

Other Employee Reviews for Symplicity Corporation

  1. "Soul crushing"

    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.


  2. "Over worked and Under Paid"

    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.
