    I worked at REI Systems as a contractor

    Pros

    The community was awesome. You are working long hours with people and really getting to know them. Most people are really nice, but some times there are blow ups due to the stress. The work was really interesting and challenging though.

    Cons

    They work you round the clock. My phone never stopped ringing. I would be at work till 2am in the morning then have a manager call me at 10am asking me why I am not at work. They have completely unrealistic expectations of their employees in terms of hours. I couldn't even imagine being a salary employee there.

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the pay and bump down the hours.

    Pros

    Everyone I encountered at REI was interested in the job and eager to learn.

    Developers were all new to the technologies they were marketed as being experts in.

    Advice to Management

    Contribute more to the open source technologies that your developers are using.
