I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time

Pros

Friendly co-workers, good working environment, exciting atmosphere and culture. Have a number of events for employees such as softball team, symp snacks, happy hours etc...With the exception of compensation Symplicity does treat their employees well and you will definitely meet some friends for life!

Cons

Way underpaid for the amount of work you do especially for being headquartered in a city with one of the highest cost of livings in the US. Also constantly micromanaged. There is little room for growth in terms of upward movement in your career. Also the company has recently expanded more rapidly than it should have causing resources to be stretched thin and therefore causing some products to suffer from lack up development time and market research.

Advice to Management

Trust your employees. Also do not expand so rapidly. There should not be a release of a product when you are not in a position to dedicate enough development time to back it up and make updates when necessary. This is just setting products up to fail in the long run.

    Pros

    Freedom in trying new technologies and approaches, no rigid hierarchy, flexible schedule, telecommuting, great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Not really a "con" but you do need to know your stuff and learn quickly, work some extra hours, and stay around for a while for all the benefits to kick in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for ways to improve processes, work environment, and benefits.


  2. "Rewarding & frustrating all at the same time, but overall good work experience"

    Pros

    Rapidly growing and progressive company that is an industry leader, great benefits, good pay, stellar, knowledgeable, loyal co-workers, opportunity to enjoy the convenience of working from home if that's what you'd like, opportunity to assist clients meet their goals is rewarding

    Cons

    Often inadequate communication from mgmt, mgmt distrust employees, little positive feedback, too many knee-jerk reactions/decisions, volatile work environment

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and remember you hired them for their abilities, so let them use them. Have a plan and stick to it, not changing abruptly as some knee-jerk reaction to a client comment. Believe in your plan and your employees abilities to carry it out.
