    Pros

    The company is very dedicated to getting products built that provide value to customers. They are open to new ideas and are working to correct course whenever needed. This can look like disorganization, but I feel they are making the right moves for the company. I see a lot of improvement.

    Cons

    Communication is being improved and new technical management is dedicated to making that happen.

    Pros

    RMS has a great mission - to make the world a more resilient place. To achieve this, it has created a terrific business model that is very profitable. It provides a secure, stable environment with highly intelligent and talented colleagues. The work/life balance is real, not just a sales pitch - everyone starts with 20 days PTO plus 10 national holidays. People work hard, and there is stress (after all, it's WORK, not play), but it is very manageable compared to many organizations in Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    As with any growing organization, there are management challenges. The company sometimes lacks interdepartmental transparency and communication - a situation that leadership is addressing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire the best and the brightest. Don't settle for mediocre hires even with scarce human resources.

    I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall, the company is moving in the right direction regarding software development, though there are still problems. Flexible schedule. Free snacks. Free dinner every day. Free lunch once a week. Gym. Team outings are paid by the company.

    Cons

    Very bad organization of different teams interacting with each other. One team blocked by another is a normal thing. Some approaches used during development of software are very questionable and bring a lot of hassle without any benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Get some people experienced in software development to organize development processes. Teams constantly blocked is waste of company's money.
