    Pros

    Cool people that work really hard and are welcoming to new interns. Learned many invaluable soft skills from being able to work on real client projects with various teams.

    Cons

    Not as many responsibilities and guidance as I would have liked, but it was a good experience regardless.

    I worked at odopod full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great clients, very fair even tempered management. Superior work is expected and delivered with pride in craft. Technology is respected here with company time allocated for developers to seek and share new methods. Hungry for progress. Ended up learning a great deal. Front-end 90%though, there isn't much computer science involved, mostly dazzle. Fun place to work. Lovely neighborhood and perks. Pro-family, work-life balance is on point unless its deadline time (welcome to any agency).

    Cons

    Disconnects can lead to dwindling client satisfaction, and burnout rate is often time stomached until it's too late. If you don't perform you will be pruned (which isn't a con really, a reality, rather). This can be avoided by not over-promising deliverables that are not realistic in a given set of hours. There is often an air of naivety and it waterfalls (literally and figuratively) onto developers more than it should given the brains and talent in play.

    I worked at odopod full-time

    Pros

    Odopod was an impressive place to work with incredible teams, brilliant work and great people. The clients and projects that I was a part of were always interesting and rewarding.

    Cons

    Working at Odopod was like many other agencies with long hours and high levels of stress at project launches - to be expected though. The office was also really quiet, and felt very serious all the time.

  8. "Excellent smart people doing cool stuff"

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I've worked with, does a good job being selective of type of work, ambitious goals for the company. Great perks, dog friendly, good location. Lots of fun.

    Cons

    A little bit of an "insider" culture, tough for new employees to get adjusted. Sometimes actions by management don't match what they say, communication is generally good but there are some inconsistencies.

    Pros

    Exciting work environment
    Award winning company

    Cons

    Work/ life balance is nonexistent in crunch time. It's more of an industry problem though.
