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

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, good perks, great talent that you can learn and grow from. Management is proactive and helps you move forward. Lots of PTO, bonuses, and even some pretty cool parties.

    Cons

    It can be a bit difficult to get up to speed when first starting out - there's a lot to know that has legal ramifications. There's lots of manual processes that are around that (eventually) could be automated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    PrizeLogic is a very warm and welcoming company. Employees are always ready to bring on a new team member with a smile and are more than willing to help you learn what you need to know in order to be good at your job. An open environment creates opportunities for employees to feel comfortable to continue to ask questions, shadow and do whatever they need to do to succeed. Excellent PTO, Friday company lunches, early release on summer Fridays, holiday celebrations, fun work activities and great culture.

    Cons

    There are offices across the country which all communicate and work together to keep the company operating at such a fast and efficient pace.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have a positive and encouraging energy that makes employees feel wanted and welcome.

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

    Pros

    A great group of people that love to work hard and play hard. I have been impressed at how many people have been here for a long time - doesn't usually happen in this type of company. The PTO policy and flexibility are great options too.

    Cons

    Geography is a challenge but it won't be forever. Each location operates independent of the others but it's clear leadership is working on that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working toward product process improvements that will allow us to grow!

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

    Pros

    - Fully stocked kitchen
    - Decent PTO pool, with flexibility if you've hit your limit
    - Interesting projects
    - Friendly and supportive co-workers
    - Great place to learn and grow

    This is an excellent work environment for developers who are just starting out, or people who are looking for an easy, stable gig long term. Decent benefits, and a friendly atmosphere. I learned a lot from the assortment of projects I was given during my time there. Very laid back, casual work environment, and the bonuses are very generous most of the time.

    Cons

    - Bad developer retention rate
    - Management can be poor
    - Focus on making money on tight deadlines, sometimes at the expense of the developer
    - Pay is below market rate
    - 5 work from home days policy is absurd

    Management tends to rely on a handful of developers to do the more difficult projects. It's an agency so expect good times and bad times. Pay is bad considering how much money the company makes on every project. Bad processes for implementing new technologies. Don't work "too" hard or the company will exploit you, doing the status quo will keep you happy long term if you don't want to be overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better process for implementing new technologies into the stack. Train your team appropriately, and hire new talent when you need it instead of pushing your team to learn things too quickly. Spread the workflow more evenly across all developers, don't depend on a few for the "hard stuff". Stop investing in front end application libraries. You're rendering a portion of your back-end useless, and the tech doesn't make sense for one-off promotions. Stick to what you're good at.

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

    Pros

    Strong inter-department communication, challenging and varied assignments, lots of experience and support for new developers to draw from, relaxed dress code, flexible schedule, performance-based bonuses, open office, full kitchen, company lunch on Fridays.

    Cons

    Open office (it's both good and bad), PTO "pool" which is usually fine but can be unfriendly to those with small children, no 401k matching, work-at-home is discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the 401k policy. The bonuses are nice, especially if you are young and on the run from job to job, but for those of us looking to establish a solid foundation for retirement, it can be a turn off.

    Pros

    The team in LA is a smaller office compared to the rest of the organization, but has a great team and culture, with a passionate about growing the business and servicing its clients. Great focus on training and development!

    Cons

    It's hard to be a 'remote' team member, but the team makes it work.

    Pros

    Constant flow of new projects. Company is willing to invest in your growth as a developer. Great culture (free snacks/drinks, lunches on Fridays, flexible schedule). People are generally really friendly. Lots of opportunities to make a direct impact on the business. Management is open to improvements and suggestions to make things better and employees happier. Can be a really satisfying role. A great chance to dive into SQL, if you are looking for that kind of challenge. You can really just focus on back-end if you don't want to deal with the front-end development tasks.

    Cons

    I had no experience working in an agency prior to this role. For developers, an agency is not going to run like a traditional software development company. As a developer, if you can understand that and embrace it, you will be fine. Many developers can't/won't do well here because the role won't play to their strengths. Be sure to ask a lot of questions in your interview to understand if this environment is right for you. Ask how an agency is different than a traditional software development company be sure you are ready to take on that kind of a change. There's a lot of SQL work, which will be a turn-off for some. You will be required to juggle 5 or 6 projects at the same time, which can be too demanding for some folks.

    Advice to Management

    The back-end .net developers working on promotions do not necessarily have to be top notch senior software engineers. Be willing to take on entry level folks and mold them into what you want them to be. Senior developers are quickly turned off because this is an agency and not a traditional software development company and these developers don't know the differences between the two when they come on board. Design the interviews to have more coding exercises to determine if the candidate can code well and solve problems. Be sure they are comfortable with troubleshooting server side issues. Be sure they know that there will be a lot of SQL development required. Coding boot camps are the wave of the future, and it would be nice if the company would be willing to give those guys a chance. But this will mean that the company needs to figure out a solid mentoring program and on the job training of the proprietary systems.

    Awesome benefits, family comes first always, lots of flexible schedules available.

    Growing company is losing the boutique agency feeling and becoming more corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid letting the culture slip into full corporate zombie mode.
