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

    Pros

    It is a great place to start work at. It is now the fastest growing company in its sector. There have been many new changes in the company. Heading towards the right direction under the new CEO.

    New office location coming soon. Fun place to work at.

    None.

    Sadly, management needs more experience.

    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Symplicity is serious about embracing methods and processes that improve their employees' work-life balance and promote happiness in the workplace. Although things can get busy and hectic and frustrating depending on the time of year and project one might be working on, management is receptive to open dialogue about and concerns the employees have. They understand that "life happens" and are very positive about the needs employees have to work from home, go to appointments and just have days off.

    Cons

    Symplicity is still refining their efficiency in how they handle and assign projects and workload. But I must say that they are actively working towards better, more efficient solutions constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open dialogue with the employees. Keep employee happiness a big focus and they will be happy to work hard and put in extra effort.
