    Pros

    Outstanding company and people with multiple areas of focus / expertise. Everyone is very helpful and client satisfaction driven

    Cons

    From an individual point of view, there are no issues thus far. From a company perspective, they should advertise more. The only difference between their competition is that the competition is advertising themselves more.

    Advice to Management

    Become more aggressive with ad campaigns

    Pros

    Flexible
    People
    Good place to start your career

    Cons

    Management needs work
    Benefits (healthcare, lack of sick days)
    Salary is low compared to other companies

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if management could promote people based on talent and growth rather than promoting people in their friends circle. Micromanaging does not help anybody. If you did not have a problem with people working late and on weekends, you should not have a problem with people leaving work early when they have nothing to do.

    Pros

    I must say that REI has demonstrated its genuine concern and regard for employees in numerous ways. As I prepare to move on due to the considerable transition the company experienced last year, I am thankful and truly impressed with the care and thoughtfulness given to allow me to make as seamless of a career move as possible.

    Cons

    There is still room for improvement when it comes to hearing tough constructive criticism but even this has gotten better over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have key persons (Resource mgrs. etc. work to cultivate soft skills)

    Pros

    Generally nice people to work with. I was given opportunities that I would not have necessarily gotten elsewhere.

    I worked at REI Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, bagel Fridays, tuition reimbursement, the building is somewhat new, asks for employee inputs during all hands meeting, and basketball court.

    Cons

    Takes 6 years to get fully vested, which is pretty ridiculous. Low salary, lots of overtime without compensation. The cubicle scene is depressing. The company is cheap and unwilling to make employees few comfortable. At least provide some free snacks.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap, pay your workers a decent salary. Promote within and stop hiring the heartless managers.
