    Leadership...ready to blame everyone but Sales team. Bias, place didn't feel safe to speak out. I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone, unless you are white man.

    DO NOT trust their sales pitch.

    Pros

    There were some nice people, outside of management

    Cons

    The leadership is full of shady businessmen. They don't care about you unless you're bringing in deals for them or breaking your back working overtime. This is an old white dude club, and it feels like everyone else is their pawn. Be very careful who you trust. You'd be better off working for just about anyone else.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good pay

    Cons

    Like any company in its space, if there isn't client work to make you 100% billable, you're not employed.

    Fast Paced, Lots of Opportunities

    Pros

    The team is very focused on driving some amazing and innovative solutions for customers via the latest emerging tech, so it is very refreshing to actually deliver digital transformation and be part of our customers' change. We often hold discovery sessions and host companies whom are just wanting to understand how the latest tech is being used today to determine how they also might create competitive advantages or avoid falling behind - this is a great way to see how customers are thinking. Lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Open doors to the management team whom are always open for discussions. The employee and customer referral program is amazing. Stocked kitchen is a plus!

    Cons

    As with many tech companies, it is a fast-paced environment where we are often on the cutting-edge of solving problems. It is important that employees can self-direct work and delivery and not be afraid to take chances.

    Pros

    A truly collaborative company with exciting client work and inclusive culture. This is a great place to be for folks who like to raise their hands, wear a lot of hats, and love technology.

    Cons

    Small company, so you have to be okay with a fast pace and lots of pivots.

    Perfect environment for creativity

    Pros

    This is a company that has a startup feel without the startup problems. The management has a number of successful companies under their belt and they know exactly what they are doing. The culture is fantastic, and the projects utilize cutting edge technologies that a lot of companies are only now thinking about looking into. This company has great opportunity for growth, both personal and professional. Creativity and any kind of input is very well encouraged, taken, and acted upon. You can really make a difference here and have plenty of latitude to make project-impacting decisions. I love the fact that the Valence values their employees' time with flexible working hours and even the standup meetings are automated using a chat bot (incidentally, Valence works with natural speech interfaces, so talk about eating your own dog food!). This company is a rare gem

    Cons

    There aren't any downsides that I can think of, but as always there is room for improvement. This is why it's so great to work here and be able to influence a growing company's direction and culture

    Pros

    It's been a blast so far! Lots of autonomy, ability to shape direction and help build something. Flexible work schedules and no micro management. Leadership team is enthusiastic and everyone enjoys coming to work!

    Cons

    It can be ambiguous here. If you need a lot of direction and feedback, you might have to wait for it. It's a great place for pushing your skill set, but you might have to do the pushing.
