    Pros

    Team mentality. Everyone wants you to succeed!
    Ability to work remotely. This really gives you the ability to live your life in a more balanced way. You can throw in a load of laundry or start a pot roast without disrupting your day.
    Constant improvement of the products that you work with.
    Fun people, who have senses of humor.
    The managers that I work with are thoughtful caring people. They are also very reasonable.

    Cons

    Benefits : The benefits aren't that great when you are coming from higher education. Family health insurance is very expensive, the retirement is probably in line with normal businesses, but is not close to higher education. It is especially difficult to envision planning a parental leave after having that covered so well at an institution of higher education.

    I knew about the benefits going in, and I didn't let it stop me. I am grateful!

    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working from home is a great convenience factor. I love talking to clients and helping them work through problems or develop a new work flow. My opinions and suggestions are always taken into consideration either for new client features or changes to staff work flow. There are great benefits and management is flexible should you need to temporarily adjust your work schedule.

    Cons

    Working from home presents challenges. Work social connections are all online or over the phone. It can be difficult for some personalities to not see people throughout the work day. The other challenge is the office is in your home and it can be difficult to limit your work to the hours and days scheduled. I often work on weekends to get ahead or work on an issue (addicted to solving puzzles).

    Advice to Management

    Clients are charged for onsite trainings. The staff member who covers them should be monetarily rewarded as well as they may fall behind in work and have to work extra hours to catch up.

    I have been working at Symplicity Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Organized and timely promotions and salary review process. Management cares about keeping employees happy and working in a good environment -- this includes up to date hardware and software and good support from IT and HR.

    Cons

    The main web application for internal project management is dated and complicated. Communications are sometimes scattered across Email, IM and this management app making it difficult to properly understand where a project is at and what has been discussed when working with many people on it.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to consolidate all the different methods of project management and tracking (Manager, supportwiki, and other "loose leaf" requirements docs) into one system with all the tools necessary.
