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

    Pros

    Small Company, has a close knit culture. Good benefits, generally friendly atmosphere. Owners are very genuine, sincere people. They work extremely hard.

    Cons

    Doesn't support Telework - even when the customer approves. Owners are old fashion, and prefers people work on site. Needs to work on Work/Life balance, though they say they do, it doesn't always show in practice.

    Advice to Management

    Step up to the 20th century and embrace Teleworking! Consider other Work/Life balance schedules for people. Catering lunches, giving out ball game tickets isn't Work/Life balance programs, they are perks.

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

    Pros

    Christmas party and Kids yearly party

    Cons

    Awards and recognition are reserved to the selected few in the company.

    The pyramid is really steep to grow up the chain (for a small company, it shouldn't really be the case)

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

    Pros

    It was a small company that I thought had a lot of potential. There seemed to be an emphasis on family.

    Cons

    Very little depth to positions. When there is a budget cutback on a project, the company cannot really keep people around to look for new positions. Sometimes, though, I did get the impression that there are those who are in the know and like that position of power.

    Pros

    This small company has a great work environment; dedicated leadership; it is a very honest and ethical business; there is a lot of commitment and dedication to its people; the company always asks employees for input and shares in profits

    Cons

    As a government contractor opportunites are available when there is new business so if you want to move up fast it might not be the right place.

    Advice to Management

    You are on the right path keeping employees updated on where the company is going - keep doing what you are doing

    I worked at Pyramid full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small company, welcomes innovative ideas, processes and approaches to run IT development and maintenance projects.

    Cons

    Budget/cost and resources on the project are not in complete control of the PM but the expectation of delivering the product on schedule and on budget resides on the PM.

    Advice to Management

    Discuss the best course of action for delivering success on the project with your Sr. PMs and support them on the agreed upon plan.

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

    Pros

    Most of the leadership is top-knotch in this small company. They are successful and good at what they do. Integrity. Fun. Very international crowd.

    Cons

    Job security? If they can find someone to do the job cheaper (college grads, immigrants) they will keep them not you. Only a few select positions require good experience.

    I worked at Pyramid full-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and good work/life balance. Some really talented managers and employees alike. Nice small company perks, such as free lunches and celebrations for important life events (baby showers, birthdays, etc.).

    Cons

    Advancement and training is political and lots of favoritism was shown by management. Not very good at adjusting to their growing size.
