    I have been working at Microdesk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely Great Company to work for, extremely understanding, and ability to take the initiative as long as you are willing to take it. This is not for someone looking for a place to coast.

    Cons

    The only con would be having some time to do some personal development and do some training with the supported software vendors - over time - would be a major asset.

    Pros

    Microdesk has been a great company for me. I enjoy everyone I work with and love the pace. We are growing fast and more great people keep joining the team. Senior management works hard to help those on their team as well as fellow coworkers succeed.

    Cons

    It can be stressful, but what job isn't?

    I worked at Microdesk full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, HR listens, great location, BIM experts, some very hard-working people who are very supportive.

    Cons

    Unprofessional Sr. Managers who humiliate, berate, under-utilize, and downright discriminate against sales people they don't like while they show favoritism towards others. Bad work environment that HR tries to correct.

    Advice to Management

    Send your Sr. Managers to "Leadership Training" so they can understand the differences between good management and bad management. In addition, require them to create a strategic long and short-term Business Development Plan that is followed throughout the company. If they cannot, fire them!

    Pros

    Super diverse staff. No greater group of technology professionals for AEC on the planet. If you are a self starter you will have everything you could ever want at your finger tips here and an unbelievably talented group of peers. Not even Autodesk has it's nose to the ground of what's happening in the industry the way this place does. It can be high pressure, especially if you're good at what you do, but everyone is down to earth and running at the same speed. I've easily made friends for life across the country from this one job and the tools it gave me access to rocketed my career. If you're good to them they're great to you.

    Cons

    They will give anyone a chance and they expect the same professionalism and performance from everyone. What this means is they do pick up a lot of bad apples who then get upset when they can't wear sandals to work or have to put in time on the weekend or aren't running the company in 3 months while not performing at their initial job. Some figurative crazies and some literal crazies do pass through those doors. People also like to pick on Mike Delacey as a creep because it's salacious. Mike will take you out for drinks every time he runs into you but also wont suffer a fool, which I appreciate. Again, this job is what you make it.

    Advice to Management

    They could be more proactive in terms of who to they want to keep. You give someone an opportunity to become an expert on the latest technology and then introduce them to 100 firms someone is going to steal that goose from you.
