    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.

    I worked at REI Systems full-time

    Pros

    Great people, good 401k plan and benefits. Nice workplace environment, flexible hours (does not mean less work)

    Cons

    Dated technology stack, convoluted, closed framework library which all projects have to use. This makes learning and introduction of new technologies very difficult. Growth depends on the project you work on, salary not par with other companies in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new technologies, ideas.

    I worked at REI Systems (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great happy hours, great team, great projects.

    Cons

    Spent a lot of light night at the office. Would seriously be there till 5am in the morning. The hours would make some people irritable.

    Advice to Management

    I learned so much there and was so grateful for my time there. Management is what kept the whole place running. They were calm smart and good listeners. Just keep doing what you guys are doing. My only suggestion is go a head and splurge and hire the really talented guys. I think you will thank your selves in the long run.
