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

    Pros

    Top to bottom Replicon has the right people in place. Everyone from Marketing, Implementation, Sales, IT, and Execs are all on the same page pulling the rope together to achieve goals

    Cons

    It is very independent role. If you don't ask for support you won't get it. Squeaky wheel gets the oil.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    - free lunch
    - almost everyone leaves right at 5pm so work/life balance is good
    - lots of parking
    - most of the people are friendly and nice!
    - the location on the water is very pretty

    Cons

    - no 401k match
    - depending on department, salaries can be well below industry standard
    - high turnover, oftentimes without proper emphasis put on replacing people quickly (which meant that remaining employees often had to pick up the slack without further compensation)
    - didn't place much emphasis on career development
    - management doesn't seem to trust their employees to own their projects, which resulted in bottlenecks where c-levels had to give approval for even small project details that shouldn't even have been on their radar

    Advice to Management

    There's a fine line between having "going above and beyond" as part of the culture, and not fairly compensating people for the work they're doing

    Pros

    Very approachable e-team, very pleasant co workers, great work environment, good flexibility. Company has been around for a while, but is growing rapidly, and it is very exciting to be part of.

    Cons

    So far, none that I can think of. Everything's been great. My learning curve has been steep, but that's not the company's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Its fun working here, super challenging, constantly being pushed to think outside the box. Leaders are approachable and full engagement by the employees.

    Cons

    Feedback can be taken personally instead of focusing on fixing the issues affecting customers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in training/coaching. Training needs some attention, specifically the soft skills side.

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

    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.
