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

      Pros

      Everyone in Reflektion was like family. Everyone was easy to work with and coordinate with. It's great to learn from everyone.

      The technology you work with in Reflektion are an in-demand technology stack in the Silicon Valley. What I learned and technology I worked with in Reflektion has helped me tremendously in my current job. I've definitely learned to work with many technologies in depth. Reflektion is willing to provide resources for experiments.

      Being that Reflektion is a start-up, you'll be taking ownership of several projects and will wear multiple hats including project management, which could be a good and bad thing. Good because you'll learn A LOT. Bad because, as expected, it'll be a lot of work.

      The benefits are great. You can see the benefits on their web page. They also provide lunch and dinner. Who doesn't like free lunch and dinner?

      Beautiful office location in San Mateo. Close to the 92. Great location to take a walk. Close to Bridgepointe Plaza which included BJs, Target, Starbucks, Chipotle, Panda Express. Every Thursday, there were food trucks in the parking lot.

      Every Summer and Christmas time, they have an office outing like BBQ and scavenger hunt at Golden Gate Park, or going to a fancy restaurant in downtown San Mateo.

      Just like in every company, there have been times when the company was not doing so well. However, I feel the management did a good job of changing their strategy and regaining momentum.

      Cons

      This could be a good or bad thing depending on your perspective. Considering that Reflektion is a start-up, you'll need to work about 9 - 10 hours a day to keep up with the work load.

      I enjoyed it because I learned a lot in a short time. Just to give you perspective: prior to Reflektion, I worked in a big company, so I was in a small team working on a small portion of the code. What I learned in 6 months in my prior job, I learned in 1 week at Reflektion.

      I have been working at Reflektion full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Aggressive and visionary CEO, fast pace, innovative culture, great team and camaraderie, good benefits, approachable management. It feels like working in a family enterprise.

      Cons

      Nothing so far that could be termed as a con. Open door policy leads to open and honest discussion on any issues and get resolved fast.

      Continue to keep eyes on the ball
