    I worked at Ensequence full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some great co-workers to work with. They are always willing to help you out, and are experienced and likeable. The projects and subject material that you work on/with is cutting edge and very interesting.

    Cons

    The upper management is unfocused. They lie about the status of the company over and over again, such that you cannot trust anything that they say. Also, the profitability of the company is highly dependent on other slow-moving companies, such as Comcast. This means that the realization, and checkpoints, of Ensequence's financials is highly dependent on the bureaucracy of these corporations, and not on the ability or expertise of Ensequence's staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop lying to your employees. Honesty is going to keep your employees better prepared and motivated to keep doing the excellent work that they have been doing for years.

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

    Pros

    Ensequence is an amazing company with great technology, intelligent people, and an outstanding product! Since Ensequence has been around for over 15 years they have the stability of an established company, but the culture of a start-up.
    - Above average health benefits
    - Good culture and nice work life balance
    - Upper management listens to your feedback
    - Opportunity to work with friendly, intelligent, and high integrity colleagues

    Cons

    Ensequence is no exception to the problems of most fast-paced, entrepreneurial companies; things move fast so mistakes can happen.
    - No 401K Match
    - Pay Could Be More Competitive

    Advice to Management

    Treat the performing, valuable members of your team well with flexible work hours and competitive pay. Stay humble, passionate, and on the cutting edge of technology. Further enhances products with data + analytics investments.

    Pros

    Location, good work life balance, nice people for the most part

    Cons

    Management can't be trusted, constant change is solution to everything, no settling time to see what works before next change occurs, under tasked people

    Advice to Management

    Stop reinventing the wheel, from the business model to the SLDC to the jobs people are doing.

    Pros

    Some of the best people I've ever worked with. Folks work hard, and form friendships that don't involve work.

    Cons

    The business plan changes every quarter. If you don't have a business plan to make money, fold up shop.

    Advice to Management

    Having upper management fly from NY to Portland and take managers to expensive meals does nothing for moral. Peter, people laugh at you behind your back.

    Pros

    Decent culture ( maintained by outgoing employees, not management ), good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Terrible management, lack of direction, zero loyalty to anyone without a C in their title. No incentive to work hard or perform at your best. Poor allocation of funding.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.

    Pros

    I have been with this company for several years and have experienced nothing but professionalism, camaraderie and support by my colleagues and senior management. Management acknowledges and appreciates the employee's efforts and hard work. A healthy work life balance is also a part of Ensequence's culture.

    Cons

    long commute
    In the past some departments didn't communicate with each other, but management was committed to and has resolved most of these barriers.
