      Great people and opportunities

      Pros

      It's a mid-sized company that doesn't have it all figured out so there are opportunities for individuals to grow. IF you are confident, leadership is accessible and willing to hear ideas/opinions and execute on them. You have to take charge of your destiny here - you can't wait around for it to land on your lap. These are PROs for people who don't need a lot of structure.

      Cons

      Company runs lean -especially non-revenue generating groups. Expect to show a decent business case for any expenditure in this environment. No performance bonus.

      The culture is people first and that's not just said but show. Salaries are competitive. Great people to work with. Opportunities for movement not only exist but are encouraged.

      Pros

      - Absolutely loved working with the people on my team - Competitive salary - Can work remotely

      Cons

      - If you tell managers about your problems, nothing will be done about them - Zero training for managers... if you promote a developer to a managerial position with no training, how can you expect them to perform well? They're totally different fields of study. - There's what appears to be a form of nepotism occurring within one of the orgs... friends promoted to positions where they're not actually performing those titles - No career growth due to nepotism issue - VP of certain org has no accountability and would rather blame issues on technology used and previous VP than blame himself - CEO has some sort of god complex... claimed all employees that weren't RIFed as the "chosen ones"

      Zero growth for some groups. people have been in the same job for 10+ years with no growth (this is for the entire team) just the same few people (the managers) get better titles. Absolute boys club at the top. Manager do not advocate for their teams well.

      Pros

      Employees and management are generally very respectful and supportive of each other. Sabbaticals! We can take 4 weeks off after 4 years or 5 weeks off after 5 years from hire date or most recent sabbatical.

      Cons

      Moving into new roles and getting promoted can be challenging. Departments within WideOrbit sometimes feel siloed.
