    I have been working at ReliableCoders full-time

    Pros

    - There are a few people who are very nice and helpful - You need no experience to work here - You get to see a lot of cool project ideas

    Cons

    - Company is super disorganized - You will have multiple projects on you, all of which are the highest priority - The amount of interns an junior engineers make it impossible to get anything done at a higher level - Management has no idea what their competitors do or how they work - People who aren't nice are super rude and believe they are above you - Super limited Senior staff - Sales can change estimated time...

    Advice to Management

    - Add more structure and properly support your interns and junior engineers so they can excel at what they want to do - People can't improve when you are willing to work on them on the areas they need improvement - Stop looking at just the money, with that attitude you lose people who care about the company. People are important too. - When trying to be motivating, don't tell the entire staff that what they are doing...

  5. "Lots of interesting projects"

    Current Employee -  

    I have been working at ReliableCoders full-time

    Pros

    - If you are looking to grow your skills or get experience working on lots of projects, this is the place to do it. I've had the opportunity to work on many projects and all kinds of verticals here, an experience I'd never get being dedicated to a single product. - 'normal' work day not often found in startups - no culture of working late here - Flexibility for working moms - Female dominated office - about 85%...

    Cons

    - Some really killer, capable people and some really incompetent people on every team. There seems to be a lot of toleration for lazy, incompetent or timid employees. - Sales will quote an unreasonably small amount of hours or an unachievable timeframe so projects often run over budget or longer than quoted. There are often more projects than resources. - 100% paid healthcare for employee but no 401k. Terrible PTO...

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employees to stick around, work hard and provide good quality, you need to invest in them. Good PTO, 401k, stock options, pay that is on par with the area. Hire good people, not just anyone who comes in the door or because they can work for you for free. The amount of unpaid 'interns' here is frankly shocking and will hurt the company in the long run. The projects here are pretty fun, but silicon...

    I have been working at ReliableCoders full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedules. Most of the team is very talented, friendly and intelligent. A lot of room to grow and explore different areas in your career here. Free food, catered lunches. Pretty good health insurance. Variety of interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Micromanagement to the point of decreasing efficiency, management/founders expect you to not have a life and slave over the company. CEO is a character - engages in a lot of unethical activities or things that are in a gray area, pretty rude to some employees here. Favoritism toward submissive, pushover employees. A LOT of unpaid unskilled interns or low-wage employees who are on a visa. Company also keeps selling services...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in some organization in the company and stop micromanaging people to death. Just let people do their jobs and leave them alone. Don't overload people with work that is outside of their expertise or above their hourly bandwidth. Stop overselling and under-delivering. Treat people with respect and pay them what they deserve.
