I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

My coworkers are bright, innovative and supportive. Strengths are identified and utilized. Feedback is commonly offered. Ethics are emphasized. The company is family friendly. Communication is good. Workload is busy and steady but not overwhelming. Telecommuting offered for some positions.

Cons

Benefits are along the lines of peers (small, private tech companies) which means expensive insurance and minimal leave. The trade off for few benefits is pay and work environment.

    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Organized and timely promotions and salary review process. Management cares about keeping employees happy and working in a good environment -- this includes up to date hardware and software and good support from IT and HR.

    Cons

    The main web application for internal project management is dated and complicated. Communications are sometimes scattered across Email, IM and this management app making it difficult to properly understand where a project is at and what has been discussed when working with many people on it.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to consolidate all the different methods of project management and tracking (Manager, supportwiki, and other "loose leaf" requirements docs) into one system with all the tools necessary.

    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.
