I have been working at Vantiv full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Pair programming - yes some people complain that it is not for all personalities - if you are humble and willing to learn, you will learn a lot and contribute immensely. You'll be checking in production code in less than a week.

Engineering managers are quite simply the best I have ever worked with. They are extremely good at balancing work/life, assigning priorities and taking engineer goals into account while managing them.

Engineer ownership is extremely high. All engineers will be involved 100% from concept to production for the project they work on and one is able/expected to make product changing suggestions and mission critical decisions.

Flexibility is fantastic. If you are an all star performer and work out logistics with your manager/pair, then nobody will bat an eyelid if u need to leave early to pick up the kids or work an afternoon remotely because you have a delivery.

Great medical benefits - no deductible is unheard of these days.

Cons

Use it or lose it vacation - many managers allow you to privately roll some time over.

The recent acquisition may tighten up some of the flexibility.

Not for everyone - if you cannot work with other people then you will fail fast with pair programming.

Advice to Management

Resist picking up big company bureaucracy that might come along with the acquisition. Try to keep the current top notch medical benefits.
