    I worked at Resource Data Inc (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, ok benefits, beautiful work environment, nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Cultral issues, peoples egos are overly invested in products that have poor design decisions behind them preventing criticism. Mostly remote interaction with management and senior staff led to miscommunications and poor employee engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Programmers often make poor leaders. Telecommuting is not a perfect replacement for in person interaction.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Compensation is generous. Management is very hands-off, which is appealing to a lot of people. Co-workers are all friendly.

    Cons

    If you are not on a project and are not a senior employee, you are assigned maintenance work on the company Intranet. This work can be frustrating, especially for non-programmers. Benefits are also somewhat weak, but the company is trying to improve in that area.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about brand-new employees and employees not on project work. Be more creative when it comes to using non-billable hours.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. The RDI Intranet definitely is full-featured, and I realize it can be a bit overwhelming getting started on it. It does provide stability for ... More

    Pros

    They offer a variety of work and most employees are pleasant to work with. The Anchorage office is in a nice location.

    Cons

    Very expensive insurance packages, low salaries, disconnect between management and staff. This is an employee owned company. The ownership path is closely guarded and not spoken about. Continuing education is not encouraged.

    Pros

    Overall, RDI is the best place I have worked. There is a big emphasis on work-life balance, the company is full of experts in their fields, and the culture is wonderful. Also, the management is some of the best I have encountered; they truly care about you and it shows.

    Work schedules can be very flexible depending on the projects you're working on, and there are regular opportunities to work from home or remotely. In my experience, each team is different and what is acceptable varies from project to project.

    There are a number of very smart, motivated individuals at RDI that truly enjoy the work they do. It's definitely a breath of fresh air. Socialization and team building is encouraged, and I've had very interesting conversations with my coworkers on many topics.

    Also, there is a high degree of transparency at RDI, which I appreciate very much. I think it helps the motivated individuals grow together as team. Overall, I feel that I've been treated very well since I've been at RDI, and I would highly recommend working here to others.

    Cons

    The benefits are not the greatest, so keep that in mind when negotiating your salary. Also, promotions and raises generally only occur during performance reviews (annually after your initial six-month review).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Flexible schedule if you are not at a client site.
    All the employee's are permanent unlike a lot of the temp agency type firms.
    If you get on the right project you can build a lot of experience quickly.
    Very little corporate bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are poor.
    It's hard to get on good projects.
    Unless you come in as a tech lead or project manager it is more a resume building job.
    High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Get more competitive with compensation.
