    I worked at Infinity Software Development full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic company to work for. Culture is very employee-oriented and supportive. Can work in many different areas and with many different technologies. One of the best employers in town.

    Cons

    Projects primarily involve business process implementations which can be less attractive to developers looking for out-of-the ordinary project opportunities. However, recent expansion into the private sector have mitigated this concern.

    Advice to Management

    Step van to deliver projects when complete :-).

    I worked at Infinity Software Development full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The culture used to be great, with many smart, motivated people working there. Over time, the company values shifted, and now management seems to value profit and the appearance of success over actual results or employee satisfaction.

    If you are looking to get experience as a junior developer, this may be a good start for you, but don't expect much in the way of training or professional development on the job.

    Cons

    Management places more value in expensive facilities remodeling than investing back into employees or promoting good business practices

    In addition, as other reviews have mentioned, management has created a hostile environment that includes heavy-handed legal pursuit of non-compete agreements against former employees without cause and an extremely subjective approach to promotions and raises that favors friends of the owner over those with experience and credentials.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in an outside consultant to evaluate your management practices and begin implementing more concrete and structured frameworks for evaluation of employees for raises and promotions. Begin to place an emphasis on the quality of work and quality of service you are providing your clients - and less emphasis on how cool your facilities look.

    I worked at Infinity Software Development (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Eighteen years in as a software developer, I can say without reservation that Infinity (ISD) is the best place I've ever worked. If a once in a lifetime career opportunity hadn't arisen, I would still be there; probably forever.

    Leaving that last day hurt as though I was leaving my family.

    Some of the bulletpoint pros are:
    -Great office
    -Good salary
    -Great benefits
    -Management sincerely cares about the workers
    -Quarterly meetings where we discussed the direction of the business and could ask _any_ questions or raise any topic.
    -Financially sound firm
    -Smart business guys doing the business-ing
    -Great development methodology
    -The business process analysts are jaw-droppingly good. Their work makes the programmers' jobs way easier.
    -Stable, steady work
    -They literally _will_ _not_ let you work crazy amounts of hours. They mean it when they stress a healthy life/work balance
    -The culture is accepting of, and comfortable for workers of all ages, from newly minted devs to crusty old guys who cut their teeth on mainframes.

    Cons

    There really aren't any. It's a job, so there will be some tedious bits and some hard work as there are on any job, but that's why they are paying you money, right?

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. The quarterlies are particularly useful, informative and enjoyable. These extra words here are to make the twenty word minimum.

    I have been working at Infinity Software Development full-time

    Pros

    It's a great culture where you get to prove yourself and get more opportunities as a result. Really smart, friendly people who help each other. I've been here awhile, and the company is "growing" again (not just in size, but better and better projects and customers). Management is spending money on the work environment, so we're getting cool work areas and office surroundings, like you might have in bigger cities.

    Good place to be if you're a solid programmer, or looking for a tech company in this area.

    Cons

    I honestly don't have any, at least not any that aren't in common with any good software or consulting company.

    I worked at Infinity Software Development full-time

    Pros

    - If you're a smart/talented person, there is plenty of opportunity for advancement (technical and managerial).
     - You can make an impact on everything from application architecture to influencing management decisions.
     - Very competitive benefits.
     - Good work/life balance.
     - Good company culture.
     - They care about their people.

    Cons

    - A non-competition agreement that is very restrictive and enforced, so be sure you're ready to sign.
     - No overtime pay/bonuses.
     - There are some dolts in management, but show me a company where there isn't at least one.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    "Infinity Software Good Company"

    Pros

    This is a very stable company and helps employees to grow by providing resources such as books to grow.

    Cons

    The salary part is not encouraging though it can be compensated by stability. Got to sign non compete agreement when joining.

    Advice to Management

    Give more importance to employees than management. Send employees to training that will help the employees to grow in career.

    Pros

    - Company culture is seriously fantastic and makes work feel like much less of a chore. Projects are varied and help you gain much more skill in your professional field.
    - Management supports you 100% if you want to try a different role to see if the work suits you.
    - Great benefits

    Cons

    - Structure of management make it difficult to 'move up' in a role, as there aren't really any 'lead' developers. Roles switch out according to different projects which is fine, even great, internally but the lack of movement forward may not look great on paper if you've been here for several years.

    Advice to Management

    Consider current advancement/rewards system for longtime employees and revise. If no position can be moved into, the pay increase should be more substantial.

    Pros

    There are some great people who work at Infinity. I've been in the industry for many years and there are a ton of great folks here.

    Cons

    Infinity has been around for a long time and yet they still can't figure out how to manage a project. Upper management has no idea what they're doing, and frankly it's remarkable they've stayed around this long. I've also witnessed a pattern of poor treatment of employees over my last several years at Infinity. The company has invested tens of thousands of dollars in the last year in improvements to the building such as new windows, flooring, furniture, etc., and yet they refuse to pay competitive salaries, and are shocked when people leave for better positions.

    Pros

    - The analysts and developers that I worked with all were great people who are pretty entertaining to be around.
    - The performance review process is a monthly process and is employee driven.
    - You get benefits

    Cons

    - The upper management wields the very vaguely worded non compete agreement as a weapon. It is used to ensure that people do not leave. Just check out the Leon County Court records for more on that. I would also highly encourage you to ask around town about their non compete if you'ore considering working for Infinity.
    - Frequent mismanagement of projects often results in long hours for team members. That might be ok if you saw anything for it, except positions are salaried and there are rarely rewards for such overtime except for the occasional meal and a pat on the back.
    - Low starting salaries.
    - The benefits are expensive and aren't that great as far as coverage and retirement matching percentage.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your non compete and stop suing clients and former employees.

    Pros

    Management takes every opportunity to invest in employees for long term employment. Due to this and its great workplace culture, the turnover rate at Infinity is far below the industry standard. There's a diverse crowd of employees with who contribute equally varied interests and experiences to the group, so there's something here for everyone. Infinity is active in the community and plans events to promote employee interaction. Combine this with fulfilling work and a reasonable balance of work and home life, and Infinity is a great place to work.

    Cons

    - Project managment and structure can be inconsistent
    - At times, senior management can feel removed from day to day operation

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees
