    I have been working at Radialpoint full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The developers are great Mature processes Lots of time allocated to Engineering tasks (like refactor, features to help us, testing, etc).

    Cons

    -No retention program -Executive Orders with impossible deadlines for no good reason other that management whim (no customer driving said endeavor). -Roll back good practices to standardize with head office (why not improve their processes instead?) -Extremely difficult to hire good candidates with a very aggressive recruitment checklist

    Advice to Management

    The merger was handled terribly, and not by the Office Managers (which saved your short comings whenever possible). Don't deteriorate advanced best practices to "drop" down to the head office level; you should raise the bar everywhere instead. Why would you remove the perks/distinction Junior vs Senior devs?By flatlining us you are clearly communicating that you don't value experience which will cost you dearly in the...

    Each team's objectives if clearly defined will lead to a more unified approach to capturing the cloud services market.

    Pros

    - So many talented people in the office. You can always get technical help from the others. If you a junior, this is a place that you can get knowledge from. - The physical environment is good: great office location; great open-office; great daily benefit (massage, kitchen etc.) - Flexible at work. Work from home is acceptable. - Sales and product delivery know what they are doing.

    Cons

    - Management is a joke. The company was growing fine in 2016 after the acquisition: people were passionate about what they do and opened to change; however, the management decided to micro-manage the office for some unknown reasons. There was some major loss in the engineering department and the management doesn't seem to care. After many attempts of changing the processes, they still don't understand that they are the...

    Advice to Management

    You are working for a mid-size software company, not a doughnut store. You should value the individual over the process, not another way around. It is 2017, don't make 2005 mistakes.

    I worked at Radialpoint full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Prior to Appdirect acquiring them, it was rather disorganized and had an uncertain future with software that was becoming more and more antiquated. In the last two years they have become much more focused on making useful modern software. It's very nice to see. Great employee culture, nice place to work, not much stress.

    Cons

    On the engineering side, possibly over-encumbered by agile process adherence. Hard to move fast on easy projects.

    Advice to Management

    Know more about what kind of software users will actually want to use.

      Pros

      The company is honestly a pretty great place since they offer flexible scheduling, tons of snack, and health benefits too.

      Cons

      There are a few employees in the company who think they know it all, but are actually horrible human beings. They take credit for work they haven't done, obviously to look better then others and will try to glorify themselves in any means possible. They are ruthless and will make the work environment very toxic to anyone who joins their team.

      Advice to Management

      I hope that the leadership team will step up and recognize who these toxic people are and remove them before it's too late. It will give the company a bad rep.
