    I have been working at Vertex (Pennsylvania) full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people and culture here make it a fantastic place to work. Believe me, I've worked at places that were the opposite - that's why I've been here for years. The work life balance is awesome as is the paid time off and benefits. The work I do is challenging and fun and yes - the pay is competitive. We keep growing every year and even in this horrible, sad year with Covid, we are still doing fine as a business.

    Cons

    The company is growing which is awesome, I just hope the friendly, supportive culture grows with it.

    I worked at Vertex (Pennsylvania) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic work/life balance, good compensation for the area, employees are treated well

    Cons

    Tech stack is extremely outdated. A lot of the senior developers and architects who are leading projects have been with the company forever and are out of touch regarding modern technologies and best practices in software development. To be fair, it seems like they are trying to make some changes to improve things on this front but there is still a long way to go.

    Great Benefits (Insurance, Bonus, etc)

    Cons

    The company has been taking a more bottom line oriented approach in the last 2 years. Work/Life Balance is significantly worse than when I started.

    Pros

    Pay is not bad and some friendly folks

    Cons

    Don’t really listen to innovation ideas from employees. Instead, tend to fetishize consultants and will bring them in way too much to tell them the exact same things. Seems largely due to having people in leadership positions who are not qualified to be in those roles. Also, some of the leaders have been in the roles way too long, are incredibly ineffective and even toxic to their teams and will never get moved out of the company because of their friendship with the company owner. A couple of failed organizational structures over the years as well.
