    I have been working at Gimmal Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Solid benefits and pay
    - Collaborative culture
    - Forward-thinking, knowledgeable leadership
    - Open PTO policy means a great deal of freedom and a good work/life balance provided you deliver the (reasonable and well-modeled) results expected of you

    Cons

    You need to be self-motivated and willing to ask questions and voice concerns. Gimmal expects a lot of staff at all levels, so if you are not comfortable with a degree of autonomy and the culpability that comes with it, you will not thrive. Confidence and continuous learning are key.

    Advice to Management

    The transformation from a services/consulting org to a software-led business has meant a lot of change, but in my opinion it has all been for the better of the organization, it's culture, and the staff.

    I have been working at Gimmal Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    WFH, open PTO, fast-paced. Challenging environment that can be fun when they put the right players together. Unfortunately, doesn’t happen often any more.

    Cons

    Gimmal used to be a place where the best talent in the industry worked and played hard together. Upon acquisition, most of the talent has been replaced by newbie arrogance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the mass exodus of true talent walking out the door.

    I worked at Gimmal Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with Gimmal for almost a year and my journey was memorable. This is a team that strives to excel in every way possible. All coworkers were knowledgable and had a passion for their work. There is a spectrum of knowledgable engineer, who can really help you, no matter what stage of career you may be in.
    All my work was challenging and I learned a lot from the experienced people.
    The development practices are industry leading, the Gimmal SDK is the evidence of that. The Chief Architect is extremely knowledgeable, not just within the company products, but also a wide range of technology, products, development styles and engineering.
    Very flexible around time and schedule. Tons of competitive benefits. A kitchen with snack and drinks help socialize.
    Excellent vacation: 4 weeks + 3 days.

    Cons

    While there are ton of resources, you must make an effort to go out there and grab knowledge from them.
    No clear career path to grow up in the company. You have to make your own effort to get out of your way to find out how can grow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing new products and get new clients in new sectors of business.

    I have been working at Gimmal Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A positive work environment. At the end of the day, everyone has the same goal, doing whats right for the customer. Great collaboration among the various departments when needed. Even though we're a highly distributed company I feel plugged in to what's going on. Good technology in a growth market segment and the company continues to make a succesful transition from an SI to a SW company.

    Cons

    Like any growing company, there are growth pains occasionally in processes and infrastructure. We are highly distributed so self discipline, creativity, and resourcefulness are required.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the transition you've started. Keep looking for creative ways to keep the distributed team engaged.

    Pros

    Extremely sharp group of people; diverse workplace; very supportive of career development; transparency all the way to the president. If you are interested in SharePoint and product development, you will find lots to learn.

    Cons

    None to speak of from my point of view. If you don't want to travel and if you need hand-holding, you probably will not thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Stay open and communicative. Continue to support career development. The frequent company communications makes remote employees feel closer.
