I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Telecommuting, commitment to excellence, start-up mentality coupled with stability, improved emphasis on training for employees, talented co-workers, knowing our systems are utilized by millions of users daily (!)

Cons

many inexperienced managers who are homegrown and still require training and support to succeed as individuals and team leaders, but who are committed to their role, can create growing pains.

Advice to Management

Concentrate on creating consistent processes across departments, modeling existing best practices.

    I worked at Symplicity Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can acquire skills that will be beneficial in the future, and will prepare you to find another job. Other than that, it was a huge waste of my time.

    Cons

    First of all, the president/company is being investigated by the FBI, and customers often bring up the subject.
    This company only hires recent college grads, and takes advantage of them by paying them the lowest salary and giving them unrealistic loads of work and expectations.
    If you aren't near a metro, you have to pay $8 a day to park.
    President has no idea what is going on most of the time.
    Management is a joke - micromanaged to the max.
    Training does not exist.
    Very unprofessional atmosphere - the president and managers are constantly yelling and cursing while everyone in the office overhears them (even when you are on the phone with a customer).
    Most of the products are also a joke.
    Database not working half of the time - very frustrating.
    Overall, this company will make you hate your life 9-6 M-F.

    Advice to Management

    Where do I start? Hire more managers, be truthful during interviews, stop being cheap and purchase a functioning & reliable database, more communication is definitely needed., establish a training program,
