    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.

    Pros

    Great people, flex hours and good benefits. Work is busy and keeps us on our toes.so people who like to be productive will love it -not a place for slackers!

    Cons

    1. Salaries were lower, exec management worked with HR to benchmark salaries against industry standards. However implementation was not consistent across Business units. The group where i worked salaries were not changed to match the benchmarks for most employees if not all.
    2. Even though the company is small, each Business unit operates in their own worlds. Some units are very organized, process oriented and others are chaotic at best.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure consistency in work processes and compensation across the company
    Take more risk

    I worked at REI Systems full-time

    Pros

    REI will pay you a high salary, and the employees who work there are mostly enthusiastic people with smiles on their faces.

    Cons

    The cost of living for the area is fairly high compared to other cities. Many of their workers are H1B workers which means that they are able to push their employees harder and use the revocation of their H1B as leverage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the strong culture.
