    Pros

    Everyone that I work with here at Greenshades is wonderful. They are what makes GS a fantastic place to work. The energy and kindness and willingness to help each other across teams and departments is just amazing. Management is very open and transparent. You can walk up and talk to the execs at any time. They do meetings annually / quarterly / monthly to show the people where the money goes and where we are as a company. Day to day I almost always leave work filling fulfilled and satisfied that I made a difference.

    Cons

    Really the only cons comes from the fact that the company is growing still. Over the past year we hired so many new people that the teams have been changing a bunch. I want to see us stable out a bit more. Some of our process are still being perfected on account of us growing into a bigger company and it causes some shake ups. but nothing too crazy and nothing that seems like a red flag to me.

    I worked at Greenshades Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Full-time but very flexible. As long as you get your work done you are good to go. I respect that. Management and HR are very solid, and really do care about you, which is rare nowadays. Fun company events are common and food is often brought in.

    Cons

    Pay is not optimal at some entry level positions. They are improving their product constantly, but sometimes not everyone is on the same page.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Greenshades Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn a lot. Being around hard working people but in a laid back environment. In-house perks and company activities. CEO gets into the trenches with the dev work. Managers are open to hear your concerns and ideas. Flexibility to work remote. Career opportunities dependent on the dept you're in. Not a very high turnover rate overall. Employer contribution matching is great. No opinion on CEO & President as one's role is ambiguous and the other is so diversified.

    Cons

    People resources stretched very thin creating a very high stress environment at times. Some very critical functions are 1-person owned/known. High goal setting of new products/services whilst other dependent products have big problems. Dec-Feb. most stressful months but that's the nature of the business. A sense of lost communication cohesiveness within departments. Medical benefits are *meh* for a small company. Hard to have work/life balance depending on department and definitely depending on time of year and 1-person key knowledge factor highly affects this. Pay is decent.
