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

    Pros

    This was my first solid position a developer outside my training and smaller gigs. The company was a great fit, worked well with my family schedule and life. There was a constant variety of projects to keep things interesting.

    Cons

    This job was in Austin, I lived in San Antonio. This is the only Con that I can really point out, I left when an opportunity in San Antonio became available.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Our CEO/Founder leads by example. Hardwork, respect and integrity flows from the top down.

    Cons

    It can be hard at times to really connect with co-workers that are working remotely compared to the people you see day-to-day, but not much of a con since there are multiple communication streams.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to refine and improve business process. It is healthy for the company.

    Pros

    Smart, awesome, talented co workers.. So smart that the good ones gets snatched up by competitors. Very casual work setting.

    Cons

    Terrible, horrible upper management. This company is currupt, disorganized & mis managed. Employees underpaid, under appreciated. Everyone brings their personal problems to work & shows up hungover. Smart people who don't know how to treat others or run company. Turn around rate is insane. Everyone wisens up & leaves. They cant hold on to employees. But sure, management, lets chalk up negative reviews to bitter, disgruntled employees. Pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't even know where to start.

    Pros

    Smart lower level team members
    Dedicated staff

    Cons

    Leadership promises client the moon and stars.
    Clients services and production is never in the loop
    Clients are unhappy and lower level staff are blamed when we could have never anticipated the issue.
    Terrible Pay, No promotions. No thanks for late hours of hard work fixing problems caused by leadership misleading clients.

    Advice to Management

    Hire communicators that care about staff and clients. Tell the truth. Don't pretend you can deliver on things you know nothing about. Get the CEO and Chairman out of the way and let the smart lower level managers try to save the company. Say thanks and ask for our side of the story every now and then.

    Pros

    Working with smart, can-do team members, nice location for my kids.

    Cons

    Senior Management is unprofessional, dishonest, and lacks ability to lead. Senior Management does not have the experience or professionalism to run the company. Very ego-centric without any management skills.
    No real business plan, overcharges clients. No real Finance or HR dept.
    Senior Management mistreats and verbally abuses employees.

    Advice to Management

    Demote and replace all VPs, reduce price to clients, and treat employees with respect.
    Set real expectations with customers, do not oversell companies ability. Be honest with clients and employees.
