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

    Pros

    - Fantastic company culture. Friendly and collaborative people.

    - Work life balance is awesome. Flex hours and lots of paid leave. Nobody looks at you weird if you come in to the office for only two hours on Tuesdays.

    - Benefits are very nice. Lots of food. Also yoga and boot camp.

    Cons

    - Pressure to deliver. Workload is quite high.

    - Steep learning curve.

    I have been working at Kitware full-time

    Pros

    Kitware offers all the usual benefits (health care, vision, dental, short / long term disability and life insurance, 401(K) with company matching contribution, FSA, 6+ weeks paid time off, etc.), plus you get to work on some great projects that really make an impact in the world (and most of Kitware's work is released as part of one of their popular open source platforms such as CMake, VTK, ParaView, ITK, or Slicer).

    Cons

    You need to be motivated / self-directed to succeed at Kitware.

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

    Pros

    Great job workplace, professional, yet compassionate. Tons of opportunity for the energetic engineer. Senior Management and Engineers worked shoulder to shoulder. Always open for new, good ideas.

    Cons

    Workload was always cyclical, with high peaks being difficult to manage. Company growing pains were apparent while the company was increasing by 50% each year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Kitware full-time

    Pros

    Kitware provides a flexible working environment and allows me to work around my family obligations.

    I am empowered to pursue my research and commercialize the results.

    Cons

    The majority of Kitware customers are in the government.
    External contracts/consulting require strict time tracking / charging.

    Advice to Management

    Management should do a better job describing how bonus sizes are determined and what individuals can do to get larger bonuses.

    Pros

    They're big on work-life balance and truly encourage you to take full advantage of the benefits. The benefits package is quite good.

    Cons

    For too many of the projects, there's too much emphasis on the quantity of time spent, and not the quality.
