    I have been working at Seilevel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The smartest people I've ever worked with, as well as the most caring/supportive. Ever hear the expression "drinking from a firehose"? Almost every day feels like that - but in a good way! It's certainly not for everyone, but if you've always felt like a square peg in a round hole - or the reverse - this might be your place.

    Cons

    (Any cons I would share have been self-inflicted)

    Pros

    Great workplace environment and the management really cares about you as an employee. I felt I was well trained and given the opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    It is a very competitive office and you need to step your game up to be noticed. This can add extra stress most people are not use to.

    I have been working at Seilevel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Flexible working hours (fairly long hours, but they are flexible about when you work them) -Great people to interact with -Interesting projects for some of the largest companies out there -You can really control your own growth as an employee -It's just fun! -Pay is competitive with most in the industry- not the highest but great growth potential quickly

    Cons

    -Changing views from management with little transparency at times -Fairly long hours (not the "you can work any 80 hours a week you like mantra," but certainly more than 40 hours on average) -Some generic small company stuff like politics and gossip, but it doesn't usually get in the way of the work or growing your career

    Pros

    High level of transparency Well compensated Great Benefits (including 20 days paid vacation) Each project involves you to use your creativity and analytical skills You get to work with a wide array of Fortune 1000 companies Your coworkers are extremely smart and creative and they will push you to become better

    Cons

    When you are assigned to a project, you work until your task is done. This is not a 9 to 5 job.

    Pros

    Seilevel offers the ability to learn a lot of different skills, as much as you would like to learn. I enjoy the opportunity to wear several different hats.

    Cons

    As a small company, those used to the structure of large organizations will need to adjust.

    I have been working at Seilevel

    Pros

    Quick note: This place is not for everyone. From what I have seen, the people that thrive here are all very similar. I was here for some of the issues that were listed by the other reviews and while I agree with those to a certain extent, many of those problems have been fixed. Management has tried very hard to improve employee satisfaction and creating more structure to company processes. High level of transparency by management. Surrounded by incredibly intelligent minds who will cause you to push your own limits. Fun environment, but everyone knows when to joke around and when to work Happy hours!

    Cons

    Work can sometimes be monotonous and boring. Sometimes concerns are not well addressed. Interview process is very hard to get through. There is a subtle distinction between senior and junior resources, not always in a good way.

    I worked at Seilevel

    Pros

    Local Austin company with many highly skilled and experienced consultants that seem to share a passion around software requirements. I had the luxury of meeting some really great people while working there. Office atmosphere can be a little hokey at times, but they tried hard to make it fun. Seilevel has good intentions to be a great niche company and do believe they still can. There will always be a need for good software requirements. Decent vacation time, but it also includes sick days and personal days. Seem to be concerned about work-life balance. Your voice can sometimes be heard.

    Cons

    It was always very dificult to understand the direction and intent of upper management. Very disconnected to lower level employees. Today we are going to do things this way, tomorrow differently, and the next day we'll go back to how we were doing it initially. Upper management is extremely intelligent and if you are not equally as smart, then you are basically very stupid (at least in their eyes). They have their favorites for projects and if you play your cards right, you might be chosen to lead a project even thought sometimes the leader is not capable of forging ahead and ensuring project success.
