    Current Employee - Associate Software Developer in New York, NY

    Pros

    Since it is a small company you get to play a lot of roles. So you get some really good exposure. It is a great company as a start-up. The pay is also competent with other companies and the bonus is also quite good.

    Cons

    Since it is a small company, it is not that renowned. So it will not create a great impression on your resume for the company name. But the work is really good. The people tend to get very serious as soon as they step in the office premises. It would have been fun had it been a little lighter. Colleagues hardly have a chat over coffee or something. The other thing is if you are into some kind of development work, you also have to support it. So you have to be there from 8:30-5:30 even if you do not have any work. And there is no work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Work on making the work culture a little fun. Everyone is very serious all the time.

    Pros

    Freedom of exploring new tech and solutions, management fairly open.
    You are quickly in contact with clients and given responsibilities (if you want them).

    Cons

    The client services & support teams are expected to work a lot of overtime with a lack of planning leading to a near absence of standard.

    Advice to Management

    Growing is a hard task and flextrade has grown a lot, make sure you keep things under control.
