    I worked at Homestead Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Back in the day, pre-buy out, these guys had a great HR department. They had this "mental health day" policy where you could show up at work and not be 100% into and just tell HR and they'd let you have the day off. I can't remember the number of these days you got in a year, but it was one of the better policies around.

    Cons

    They thought the level of the sites that are produced by their customers were top notch, when they weren't. There was also a lot the "drinking the kool-aid" sort of thing from the younger employees so that felt pretty creepy in the Monday "all hands" meetings. Not sure how the buy-out changed culture here.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and community support.

    Cons

    There was a hugh push on sales.

    Advice to Management

    The sales part of the job was talked about in the interview but I got the feeling it was a small part. After training, getting sales is all that' was talked about. I wanted a tech help job, not a sales job.
