    Pros

    This is just an awesome place to work, period.

    Cons

    You have to be very self-driven, but I actually like that so it's not really a con for me, but it might be for others.

  6. "Pleasant company."

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Pros

    Work-life balance is easy to keep in check. You have a flexible schedule, in some cases, a telecommuting option, and there is also a great vacation plan. The company culture is very relaxed and friendly and there is hardly any trace of micromanagement. In the office lives a stress-free and light environment and people have a great sense of humor.

    Cons

    Most training is self-taught. There is considerably less stress if you already know how to code and work with the flagship product. But if you are starting out with either, learning it can be an obstacle especially when you have a deliverable to make. On the same note, there is minimal QA so best practices are rarely enforced.

    Advice to Management

    You all work really hard. Take a break, but not all at once!

    Pros

    Supportive staff, mostly laid back culture (as clients permit), flexible work schedule/commutes depending on position/clients, challenging assignments, the work you put in will be reflected in compensation/bonus structure. Usually there is always something different to do if you are so inclined.

    Cons

    Constant evolving nature of the industry, gotta keep on your toes- embrace that "cloud" even if some days it's large grey, and ominous. Windows 8.1 was fun too.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like I have open lines of communication with them and prefer to communicate directly.

    Pros

    The work is versatile, spanning across multiple platforms of web-development and database management. You will also be working with multiple companies in both Private and Public sector, and the sheer amount of variety to businesses you'll be exposed to is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Major challenges are that most skills you acquire will be self-taught, developers are moderately busy with their own work so the atmosphere gives off a feeling that you should have more responsibility for learning your own required skills (simply from my own perspective).

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment, the upper management is overwhelmingly more tolerant than University professors.

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

    Pros

    Webfortis has a very positive team dynamic that is rare to see. Each individual of the team is valued and encouraged to achieve their full potential. The team members all tend to work well together, helping other team members as needed. There is room for growth within the company, and work is noticed (which can be good or bad, depending on the quality of one's work). It focuses a lot on self-motivation, as I estimate 25%-50% of the employees work remotely from their homes. Flexibility with personal life is a very large bonus as well, with a generous vacation plan and flexibility to adjust hours if necessary.

    Cons

    The project workload goes in a feast or famine cycle. If it is a famine cycle, it can be harder to get the billable work that is needed. Then when it gets into the feast, the movement can become very fast paced and high stress. A lot of the training is self driven, and there isn't a lot of opportunity for code review for helping to learn better ways of doing things. Communication among the team is also an area of weakness.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on finding a way to balance the feast or famine cycle, so everyone is utilized equally. Steps are being taken for improved communication, and it would be good if that continues to improve

    Pros

    Extremely smart individuals that are very passionate about what they do. They believe in promoting from within but are not afraid to go outside to bring in the best. The benefits are also very good and currently include access to the newest technology, extensive no-cost training options, remote positions and travel (if you want). They are extremely customer focused and core values are evident from top management on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work gets very busy and it can be challenging to manage my time. Management is very supportive of this however, and helps with scale and tools.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
