    "Good Experience"

    I worked at Pixafy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My experience at Pixafy was unique, because I was placed on the Pixafy team following the First Year Associates [rotation] program with Net at Work (formally Net@Work). This placement, while not being my first choice, was actually a true blessing. I joined a team of incredibly smart and friendly people and learned so much more than I would have ever thought within the course of just a few months. My role was interesting because it involved a mix of project management, account management, and business analysis. I learned (for the most part) on the job and did not have a lot of training. I did, however, receive consistent feedback from my manager, who challenged me and helped me learn and grow at such a rapid pace. I was involved in some really interesting projects during my time at Pixafy, and some of my clients happened to be really great people who I actually enjoyed working with. Above all, my coworkers were always very supportive and encouraging (even when I would ask the silliest questions). They all helped me develop the skills I have today, and I will always be thankful for that.

    Cons

    The team is very small, which is not a bad thing at all; however, it was often hard for me to get help/guidance when I desperately needed it. Solid mentorship is something that lacks at Pixafy, and I hope that this can be improved. Regardless, my manager was very helpful and worked hard to support me as much as he could, and I really appreciated that.

    I worked at Pixafy full-time

    Pros

    Pixafy is great. I think some of the reviews on here are from the transition period after the company was acquired, so there are bound to be some unhappy folks. Fortunately, my very recent experience at Pixafy was nothing like theirs. The development team is hard working, focused, and driven. They are eager to please, have a desire to create, and are leading some of the coolest builds and deploys for their customers. This team of developers (and PMO office) is led by the Director of Operations who always thinking of the client and managing expectations. From team outings (LOBSTER BOAT!) to game nights, I’ve never had so much fun working with a group of technology professionals.

    Cons

    Pixafy is in a growth period, so naturally it can get a little hectic from time to time. There are also some legacy customers and issues (like the unhappy reviews here) that will take some time to fully overcome.
