    Pros

    Hours are relatively flexible depending on which team you're on.

    Cons

    Base salary is extremely low. Work environment is toxic! The upper management give high promises for new projects but do not deliver. Managers can be very passive aggressive and don't show much interest in my work.

    Advice to Management

    Act like you care about your employees. Stop acting as though they're slaves.

    Pros

    The Reply does a really good job of creating a culture around learning by building an internal community among its disciplines. If there is a problem or technology you are struggling with, there is always someone who is an expert and willing to help you out.

    Cons

    You don't always feel totally informed on what is happening with the company.

    Pros

    If you are someone that likes to learn on the job and has the motivation to tackle cumbersome projects, then this would be a good fit as there are always many issues to deal with that require multitasking and wearing several hats.

    Cons

    Work life balance not the best.

    I have been working at Reply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - High level of responsibility early on

    Cons

    - Nonexistent work life balance.
    - Very top down management approach - management will promise a deadline without talking to its developers, and then expect long hours to meet the deadline that was never discussed.
    - Compensation below market value; only discussed once per year.
    - Only one main customer; no other projects coming in.
    - Absolutely no working from home.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance needs major reform; employees should not be buying their own monitors, keyboards, mouses, etc.

    Pros

    Slow work environment...good for inexperienced developers. They are good about providing paid training related to your work. Good about reimbursing expenses.

    Cons

    Lower end of pay scale, medical package very very expensive with not great coverage. 401k is about less than average with not a great match. No bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more direction to your newer employees. Folks are hired and left to fend for themselves. Very little nurturing or advice given.

    Pros

    - The experience is very good: you work as a consultant to a very big client right off the bat.
    - Because it is a small startup, you are given much responsibility early on in your position.
    - Small startup makes for a more casual dress code and workplace.

    Cons

    - Moving up to the next position is very difficult; there are senior consultants here who manage 5-10 people each that the company refuses to promote to manager.
    - Career path and other such discussions are difficult to have because career path is not clearly defined.
    - The pay and benefits are low compared to other positions of the same nature.
