    I have been working at TRUEVISION SYSTEMS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, great benefits, and a family oriented company. A fast growing startup on the cutting edge of technology with a large breadth of responsibilities. A very exciting place to be.

    Cons

    If you like a lot of corporate structure and a slow environment, this is NOT the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring to keep up with all the new projects! A good problem to have.

    Pros

    A lot of good people, interesting product, room to learn lots with no rigid boundaries between departments and positions. Fairly frequent company bbqs and other events, and a kitchen that is always stocked.

    Cons

    Management is unstable, can be dishonest, with some fragile egos. Poor direction, lack of communication, and unrealistic expectations. Low salaries all around with an unwritten expectation to work far more hours than you are officially billed for.

    Personally, I was made a couple promises in regards to wage increase and hours billed which were later completely disregarded. I made the mistake of not getting them on paper at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Honor your word, don't take out your personal stress on employees

    Pros

    Co-Workers are great, hard working, intelligent, and good people all around. Engineering projects constantly changing so work never gets stale. Stocked fridge, pantry, snacks, and coffee. Flexible work schedule. Stock options.

    Cons

    Compensation far below average, Don't match 401k contributions, no bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation isn't everything but when you're underpaid for so long you start to wonder if management appreciate the hard work and long hours.

    I have been working at TRUEVISION SYSTEMS full-time

    Pros

    Early stage company with fast moving projects and ongoing improvement. Company is employee centered. Good pay now that recent wage correction(s?) were made. + % Bonus program new for 2016. Fully stocked kitchen, stock options, good location.

    Cons

    CEO is a shouter. Not at employees, but he yells often, seems easily frustrated. May need more experienced leadership for next stage of growth.
    No 401K matching.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on bonus program. Management needs additional training. Sound proof CEO's office.
