Pros

WideOrbit is a solid company that continues to enjoy rapid growth and a leadership position in the marketplace. It has a solid, approachable management team that is well respect amongst the employees and within the industry. Given the size, everyone still has visibility and opportunity to make an impact, and the company has a good vision of where it intends to be in the near and distant future.

On a human level, people are genuinely nice. Everyone seems to care about creating a positive work environment and there's a real sense of collaboration. I haven't seen one pissing match yet, and I've certainly seen my share of them in other software companies over the years.

Cons

There's currently no formal structure for reviews, raises and bonuses, so it's up to you and your manager to work it out. This could be good or bad, depending on what you're used to. Of course, as the company grows, this will probably change.

Advice to Management

To upper management, I'll say stay the course!

    Pros

    WideOrbit has a supportive management staff, they provide a flexible work environment with great work/life balance. WideOrbiters are creative and fun people to work with. Also, you are given the resources to do your job - technically and in other ways. It's great experience to be with a company as it grows quickly and see that first hand.

    Cons

    Company is spread out, so it'd be nice to get together more often. Broadcasting is a huge learning curve if you aren't from the broadcasting industry, but people are really helpful.

    Pros

    It is generally a good company with smart people. The code base is generally solid and the senior VP of engineering is a developer himself.

    Cons

    It tends to be somewhat marketer driven rather than engineering driven, and the technical debt piles up at times, but time is allocated to fixing things in the long run.
