    I worked at S.P. Richards full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    SP Richards was one of my favorite places to work. I worked as a software engineer and thoroughly enjoyed my team and my co-workers who contributed to my team. You can tell that the company cares deeply for their employees and to keep a very positive culture.

    Cons

    There are some bad eggs just as there would be at any company. They are very easy to find and avoid, however. Everything else about the company and the staff made it easy to avoid negativity so it really didn't affect your work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being supportive and continue to use your positive energy to grow your products. You do have it figured out even if you might not think so at times.
