    I have been working at Knetik full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I truly appreciate and enjoy working at Knetik. The atmosphere is convivial, my coworkers are awesome, management is open, available and easy to get along with. They are flexible with employees, snacks and drinks are provided, free lunch on Fridays. Good equipment and a pleasant work-space(open office, lounge area with games)
    The boss is a super cool person whose main philosophy is: hire good people, set high expectations, and give devs whatever they need.
    It is a hard driving place, but deadlines are actually generally reasonable. No 80 hour weeks here and crunch time is rare.
    Pay is very competitive and the benefit package is solid.
    This is a place where growth and education are valued. If you are self motivated and open to learning you will pick up new skills on a regular basis.
    Projects are varied - clients span many industries and there is a steady pipeline of new work.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything negative to say. If issues arise, they are discussed openly and remedied. This year a new regime of senior devs has been brought in and practices are being standardized and improved rapidly.

    I have been working at Knetik full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible and reasonable hours, constantly improving, respectful of professional opinions, quality equipment, nice relaxing setting with snacks and game room, Friday lunches

    Cons

    lack of culture, fluid requirements, relaxed agile process

    Advice to Management

    Improving company culture by organizing more team bonding exercises inside or outside of office during business hours (who wants to spend time with colleagues on week-ends?). Maybe Friday lunch outside of the office every once in a while. Re-state and re-inforce company values and mission. Open more official company-wide forums for ideas on various aspect of the business. Sponsor tech events to spread the Knetik good name. Re-arrange space a bit.

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

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, free lunch on Fridays, overall nice people, decent pay.

    Cons

    Terrible management, didn't know how to manage projects, the due dates were unmanageable, so people had to work lots of overtime to do things fast, tired and obviously bad.

    They fire people every other week. Change plans every week as well.

    The main product is super overcomplicated and doesn't work well, you can't even explain what it is to other people. They don't care about the appearance or how good things are, they just care to get more investment money or sell the company.

    The quality of the projects is bad, not enough money or time allotted for the projects.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if you actually cared about the product and not just getting by.

    Pros

    Loose environment where work goes hand in hand with play, great opportunity to grow and expand your skills as well as work on interesting and unique properties. They have several different types of projects revolving around delivering media through the web.

    Cons

    Sometimes more work than we might know what to do with, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing, keep getting more projects, and allowing the employees to grow with it.
