    Pros

    Free lunch and snacks in Redwood city office.
    Easy parking.
    Used to have some awesome employees, but they all left the compamy.

    Cons

    Poor Management. Some product managers always design the product based on their imagination, they don‘t understand the technologies, they just want to please the customers.

    Advice to Management

    You are running a compamy givng people hard times and unpleasantness!

    Pros

    Replicon is an organization which is totally transparent with employees and is poised for solid growth. Higher management is very approachable and is open to new ideas and takes actions based on employee feedback. Free lunch every day and a good selection of snacks are some of the perks which you get to enjoy with the job.

    Cons

    Replicon is growing rapidly and with it comes growing pains. It needs to find the right balance in instituting processes to maintain product quality without hampering the growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Reward strong performers and take appropriate actions against the non-performers.

    Pros

    The company has seen a lot of success and there is still a lot of opportunity to grow even larger.
    There is a lot of new management and talent that has be hired recently to shake things up to get the company to the next level.
    The culture is pretty good where people are collaborative, easy to work with, and open to new ideas.
    There are a lot of talented people working here, which is always a good thing.
    They actually have a really great product that fills a major business need.

    Cons

    There are some process challenges in the organization that need to be worked out, but those are largely known so they can be addressed in the future.
    I don't think of the culture as being especially fun, but I'm also not in my 20s and looking to go drinking every night with coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Replicon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One star for the scattered smart and nice people working there, and because there's a good chance regardless of what role you're in that you'll get to gain some good experience working with a complex product. That's where the pros end.

    Cons

    Working for Replicon were some of the most unpleasant years of my professional life. It's a place you go if you need a job, and experience. Do understand that the recent influx of 5-star reviews are fake, created by HR or by pressuring employees to write. It's pretty obvious if you read them. Also take note of what office the review is from. This one is for Redwood Shores (HQ).

    It is a cheap, Indian-run company. The pay is very low, therefore they are unable to acquire and keep quality people, which basically means they end up hiring more Indians to fill roles. You will have to get on calls regularly at crappy hours as there is a huge off-shore team. The place is a workaholic mentality with a lot of negative, top-down pressure to deliver. Everything is always a rush. People eat and work through lunch at their desks (that's catered to get you to stay inside), never go outside since there's nowhere to go, then get back to work at night with the off-shore teams.

    As you can imagine, turnover is high and everyone is anxious to find a new role elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring more quality employees, in-house. It's worth having 1 quality employee vs 3 low quality offshore employees.

    I worked at Replicon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free food and snacks though they are cheap ones.
    Easy parking

    Cons

    Endless meetings and joining them are nothing more than seeing some employers talking about nonsense.
    Wrongly designs in the initial, which also lead the numerous bugs.
    Fire experienced employers cause they want to lower the cost by hiring the same positions in India.
    Whenever an issue occurs, some employers who are should take the responsibilities always try to be the first to raise the conversation with the managers and set other employers up.
    Nobody really understands the products cause experienced and capable employers leave the company all the time.
    inefficient communication with the branch in India, people there are rude and lazy.
    They don't really care about your capabilities, they only care about if you are a brown-noser.
    Poor leadership, poor process, ridiculous employers take control of the company.
    I don't see the reasons buying the defective products from them rather then choosing free timesheet or HR softwares.

    Advice to Management

    Close the company and go back to India.

    I have been working at Replicon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    compensation (both cash and equity), healthy company, incredible investors (seriously- check out who the investors are...), culture of change and improvement and rapid growth. Innovative products in a stable and yet mission-critical industry (time and expense tracking, et al).

    Cons

    Per some of the other reviews below, this is not a place for you if you are uncomfortable with rapid change and growth, as they are inevitable when one is a technology company quickly growing and rapidly evolving. If you don't embrace change, occasional confusion, and intensity, then this company, and the cloud side of the technology business, are probably not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Stomp hard on the gas pedal. "Fail Fast Forward". Just keep doing what you are doing!
