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

Pros

Symplicity will immediately put you in a position to really learn and grow. You are thrown into situations that require strong work ethic and self-responsibility. At some organizations it takes years to direct sell, so the quick movement is great. It is also a very dynamic company with excellent products. There is also quite a bit of room to make your opinions known, which is amazing to have at such a young age.

Cons

Management is a nightmare to navigate. There is absolutely a culture of micromanagement, which is a four-letter word in this office. Furthermore, there are zero programming and training opportunities. Oftentimes you are not given the tools you need to succeed. Ultimately this is a bunch of 20 year olds training and managing other 20 year olds, which is a huge 'con.'

Advice to Management

Please hire a Sales Director. It is unheard of to have a sales organization without a leader. It is not conducive to a healthy, supportive, growth-oriented sales team.

    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working from home is a great convenience factor. I love talking to clients and helping them work through problems or develop a new work flow. My opinions and suggestions are always taken into consideration either for new client features or changes to staff work flow. There are great benefits and management is flexible should you need to temporarily adjust your work schedule.

    Cons

    Working from home presents challenges. Work social connections are all online or over the phone. It can be difficult for some personalities to not see people throughout the work day. The other challenge is the office is in your home and it can be difficult to limit your work to the hours and days scheduled. I often work on weekends to get ahead or work on an issue (addicted to solving puzzles).

    Advice to Management

    Clients are charged for onsite trainings. The staff member who covers them should be monetarily rewarded as well as they may fall behind in work and have to work extra hours to catch up.

    Pros

    Great benefits, telecommuting is encouraged, and lots of creative flexibility.

    Cons

    Cubicles are a bit dull at first, typical office work environment can be chafing for some used to the hustle and bustle of freelancing or a startup.

    Advice to Management

    More off-hours activities!
