    I have been working at Wiline full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work with a variety of languages and technologies. The software projects are interesting and management gives you input and ownership over design decisions and implementation. The software team has smart, experienced, and approachable developers who are happy to give you guidance or mentorship if you're stuck on a problem. Easily the best group of co-workers I've ever had. Very collaborative, everyone is working toward the same goal, trying to share knowledge and improve every day. Work-life balance is emphasized and the work schedule is flexible provided you're meeting reasonable expectations. Salary is competitive with similar job positions in the area.

    Cons

    There is a lot to learn, so you might not feel comfortable right away. It takes time and effort to have a good understanding of how the business model interacts with the software. There are developer groups in different time zones, so communication takes real effort and can be challenging at first.

    I have been working at Wiline full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can show up to work and not be required to do much and fit in. Great place if you want to show up for 8 hours and browse the internet and watch movies and chit chat.

    Cons

    Micro management. Senior management expects you to pick up clunky old outdated projects quickly. Little to no help on boarding or setting up technology to get started working. Senior management cares more about being at work 8 hours a day more than getting actual results done or problem solving in the software. Management and team leads complain about leaving 5 or 10 minutes early and expect you to "make up hours" asap. No trust from management to employees. No work from home options. All of the senior management is in ireland HQ so basically working with just other junior devs who are on their first programming job so no experienced software engineers to talk to. The average entry level software salary in portland is 72,000 and these guys offer 45,000 and expect "hard work".

    I have been working at Wiline full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hard-working people. Flexible work schedule. Telecommuting

    Cons

    No sense of appreciation for good work. No raises since hire date. Sporadic bonus' and limited benefits. I've been working here for almost 3 years, and they recently brought on a new management staff who is totally changing everything I've done over the last three years. I'd be gone if I had a job offer that would pay me a decent rate for the work that I'm doing.
