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

    Pros

    people are very nice, good at working together
    communal teams
    beautiful office space
    multinational teams give experience working with developers around the world

    Cons

    housing is tough to get near the Cranbury office, leading to long commute

    Advice to Management

    be transparent and give the developers a vote; the more invested developers feel in the company, the more they will take ownership of their work and final product

    Pros

    They are among the pioneers in UX / UI area. Have been into business from good old time. Great product line they have for multiple platforms. Support team is really good and is backbone of Infragistics. They have lot of potential to grow in today's market.

    Cons

    People without vision create lot of hindrance. No clarity over employee retention. No defined policies for smaller territories. Also need to work more on open source / Android side.

    Advice to Management

    Remove people without vision from management, have frequent open sessions with employees across the globe, pay attention to team members rather than just counting on management of respective area.

    Pros

    If you want to work with some of the most kindest, intuitive, and smartest people you'll ever meet in the corporate workplace, this is the place to be. Not just in their US office, but globally as well in Bulgaria, Uruguay, UK, India, and Japan.

    The User Experience and Marketing groups has very creative people with unique and outside-the-box ideas adding to the value of the organization.

    There is an employee who genuinely cares about collaboration and wears her heart on her sleeve who might ask you to play games with her crew during lunch and welcomes you to the organization on your first day with open arms.

    The sales group, if provided the tools and resources, have the ability to become superstars because they are engaged and genuine.

    And there is an "Angel" in the organization who brings out the best in people and contributes heavily to the overall culture.

    Beyond the people, there is a nice building with plenty of amenities, fitness center, basketball court, ping pong table, pool table, video games, cafe, parties, and fun events.

    Cons

    Every business has it's ups and downs. If you can focus on the positives and the amazing people, it's easy to overlook some of the cons!!!

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the amazing talent in the organization and allow them to grow in their careers which will impact the future of the company and it's bottom line.

    Pros

    So as a software engineer there's a ton of technologies and platforms that you can get exposure to, depending on the team your on. As a control development shop, Infragistics pretty much needs to stay ahead of the curve with changes to the software landscape. The environment is casual and it's not uncommon to bump into the CEO sitting and having lunch in the cafe talking about video games.

    Cons

    Tying into the above comment, the work load is none stop, and requirements can be thin at best. There's a lot of big brains and smart people and some times it's really hard to be heard or make an impact. Teams are being consolidated and are definitely laking headcount to get done what needs to get done. Cross-functional teams are great... up until a point. Year over year raises tend to be on the low side.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with better career growth plan. Salary and compensation are a bit flat. Bring in some more people, even junior, to help spread the work load.

    I worked at Infragistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for working with bleeding edge technology; casual work atmosphere (jeans and t-shirt, if you want); great new office space in a less congested area than the old building where we were. The engineers are smart and hard-working for the most part, although sometimes under-appreciated.

    Benefits aren't as good as they used to be, but not as bad as other places. I guess that's a neutral.

    Cons

    There's one and only one person known for saying "awesome" all the time about Infragistics, and you'll find his review here. Contrary to what he says is the reason he has stayed here longer than anywhere else, here's the real reason - the CEO lets him overrule everybody and everything.

    There was a period of two years that saw a huge exodus of very loyal and talented engineers, other staff and first-level managers.

    Aside from that, Telerik is a banned word at IG, but frankly they'd be better off learning a thing or two from Telerik instead of bashing it. There's enough room in the market for both players.

    Advice to Management

    People are pigeon-holed in the same job for years and years. Allow them to rotate more freely. Think more carefully about the people you put in leadership, and create a real path for people to move up in their careers. Be open-minded to other ideas outside the echo chamber of the inner circle.
