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

    Pros

    New technology for the most part. Comps are a pretty outdated but tech guys are nice

    Cons

    Managers seemed below par compared to other places I've worked

    Advice to Management

    Need more involvement from you instead of focussing on own goals

    Pros

    sometime the projects are interesting and challanging

    Cons

    modern day sweatshop.

    if you are not part of the in crowd you can find yourself fired without even knowing why.
    usually one of the incrowd made a mistake and you were the lucky one chosen to take the fall for him

    Advice to Management

    respect your workers and when you are about to let them go, show some decency and tell them why.

    Pros

    Small company on the leading edge of technology. Great place for enthusiastic software engineers who want to develop strong skills.

    Cons

    Due to its size, little room for career growth. If you are focused on developing strong technical skills, you will not have a better chance than at this company. If you are in the right place at the right time, you might see and advancement in career, but not likely.
