    Pros

    This place is great, the 5 owners are all very personable and relatively easy to approach. Some cool things about working here is that we are in a great location right on the waterfront in Kirkland. Great view, restaurants and coffee shops around. They have the "innovation lab" where the latest gadgets are kept can be checked out or borrowed. They have quarterly meetings at really fun locations - such as Mariners Game and fun restaurants. And the kitchen is fully stocked. Benefits are good and pay seems to be at market. Also, with the acquisition, seems that the owners are still keeping the culture the same and it doesn't seem like a whole lot is changing. Which is great news for us that love Radius!

    Cons

    Cant think of anything right now.

    Advice to Management

    With the acquisition, try to keep the culture alive and the same.

    Pros

    I've never worked for a company that values its employees the way Radius does. The compensation, benefits, and work/life balance are as good or better than most of the major companies in the area, and truly feel that my contributions are valued.

    Cons

    Radius was recently purchased by a large company out of Switzerland. For now, it's fine but I feel it still feels a little unclear how the acquisition is going to effect working here long term.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You've built a great culture here.

    I have been working at Radius Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Small company that still knows how to have fun
    - Quarterly company meetings (i.e. social and fun)
    - Ranked by the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the best places to work (2nd place, if I remember correctly)

    Cons

    - It's hard to interact with co-workers when most of them are on-site working on their projects
    - recently acquired by a larger company
    - parking at the office is difficult

    Pros

    * Very friendly senior management, they are extremely understanding and easy to talk to. They genuinely care about their employees' well being.
    * Very good benefits (401k, medical)
    * Location is right downtown Kirkland with views of Lake Washington
    * Interesting projects with big-name companies
    * Every employee is multi-skilled, very knowledgeable and generally a huge pleasure to work with. Made many friends here.
    * Regardless of how many years you have been in the industry, Radius provides plenty of opportunities for personal growth. This is not going to be "just a job" of "making some mundane app" that you've done a thousand times. There's a lot going on at this company, so rest assured your skills will only get sharper here.
    * Company events are always lighthearted and set at nice locations. Open bar is fairly common during the holidays. Senior management is very down to earth and will take everyone out for beers at a local pub just to mingle.

    Cons

    * Vacation policy. Not really a con, but it's not super great either. Understandable for a smaller growing company. I should point out, though, that you do get more than 2 weeks of paid time off here, so it's definitely better than many other companies out there. But sick time is packaged into your regular time off and is not a separate item.

    Advice to Management

    The management is very sharp and approachable. I think they strike a very good balance between meeting the business needs, caring for their employees and delivering to the customers. I wouldn't change anything - I'm hardly qualified to give this kind of advice :)

    Pros

    Great team, wonderful culture. VPs and CEO legitimately work with the average employee and are interested in feedback.

    Cons

    Like any consultant company, contracts rule all. Radius tries to limit layoffs by 'benching' their employees when they're no longer tied to a contract. In a recent event, however many individuals ended up being laid off due to enormous changes in the contract.

    Advice to Management

    Fight back on some demands of the customer. Some demands issued by large companies cannot and should not be accepted.
