    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.

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at Symplicity Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Somewhat flexible hours
    - Awesome management who genuinely wants you to be successful
    - Actually felt like a part of the company and not just another cog in the machine
    - Able to work from home
    - Able to work remotely after a year or two of employment
    - Great location, just a 5 minute walk to get to DC, metro accessible
    - They are trying really hard to make it a great fun place to work
    - Literally no one on the sales team is your typical "salesy scumbag", everyone is super wonderful
    - Free snacks in the kitchen

    Cons

    I only left the company because I was moving, and I personally don't have a deep passion for software sales, but Symplicity makes working so enjoyable that I didn't mind that I wasn't exactly working in my dream career field.

    Advice to Management

    Just got a new CEO in May, but haven't had any negative interactions with him. In fact, received a raise after the new CEO started, so he gets two thumbs up from me. Sales Manager is also super knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. My only advice would be to have more company events, but I think they're working on that, so truly no complaints!

    Pros

    - Pace of learning is very high
    - Definitely for the people who love to keep themselves busy
    - Wonderful work environment

    Cons

    - Company does not provide any parking.
    - You can not carry not more than 3 days of vacation to next year.

    Advice to Management

    Company should compensate some portion of the parking for their employees. This will definitely make employees happy. Vacation plan should be change. Employee should be allow to carry at least 5 days for their Vacation every year for two years.

    Pros

    Telecommuting, commitment to excellence, start-up mentality coupled with stability, improved emphasis on training for employees, talented co-workers, knowing our systems are utilized by millions of users daily (!)

    Cons

    many inexperienced managers who are homegrown and still require training and support to succeed as individuals and team leaders, but who are committed to their role, can create growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on creating consistent processes across departments, modeling existing best practices.

    Pros

    Great benefits, telecommuting is encouraged, and lots of creative flexibility.

    Cons

    Cubicles are a bit dull at first, typical office work environment can be chafing for some used to the hustle and bustle of freelancing or a startup.

    Advice to Management

    More off-hours activities!

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

    Pros

    My coworkers are bright, innovative and supportive. Strengths are identified and utilized. Feedback is commonly offered. Ethics are emphasized. The company is family friendly. Communication is good. Workload is busy and steady but not overwhelming. Telecommuting offered for some positions.

    Cons

    Benefits are along the lines of peers (small, private tech companies) which means expensive insurance and minimal leave. The trade off for few benefits is pay and work environment.
