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

    Pros

    Tidel treats its engineers with respect. Actually, Tidel treats all of its employees with respect.

    Development processes are very light, which means we are responsible for producing quality code without a lot of corporate overhead. They expect you to know your job, and trust that you'll get it done well. It is refreshing!

    Excellent team camaraderie.

    Work-life balance is appreciated. Sure, there are some urgent issues that require extra hours, but they are very infrequent. I have never seen another engineering organization in which people choose to remain for 10, 15, 20+ years. That says a lot about the company and its management.

    Cons

    Products have a long lifecycle, which means much of the code is being written for legacy systems (not bleeding edge technology). However, the newer products use more recent technologies. It will take time for them to become the dominant products.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Tidel full-time

    Pros

    Tidel is still a relatively small company (under 150 employees) so it has some of that family business feel and you have the ability to impact the business every day. Lots of really good people who care about the business and the people that work there. Really healthy work/personal life balance.

    Cons

    Tidel is healthy and growing which has resulted in changes to the financial structure and the involvement of several outside investor/ownership groups. This has increased the level of red tape and politics and made the workplace much less enjoyable than in years past...I guess that's the price you pay when you're successful and grow and have more "outsiders" who get involved and have a financial stake in company results.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the politics, busy work and outsider driven programs to a minimum...let us focus on things that we've been really successful and profitable at doing.

    Pros

    Dedicated staff. Management has a "people first" attitude. If you think Southwest Airlines is dedicated to its employees -- it has nothing on Tidel -- most people have been here for decades and people who leaves on good terms in bad times tends to get rehired when the company does better again. Despite the dedication to employees, the place tends to be merit-based, and will reward you for being successful. Due to proper work-life balance (no overtime unless absolutely necessary, and since everything is scheduled realistically, no overtime 99% of the time.), everybody is pretty laid back and hence, no pressure for employees. Another plus -- sales are not empowered to promise things that the rest of the company can't keep.

    Cons

    Sometimes, management decisions would lead to lean times. But, doesn't that happen at all companies? Also, since the company is smallish, with only about 100 people, posting on here isn't that anonymous. So, please excuse me for not listing my job title.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
