      I have been working at Bluebeam full-time (More than 3 years)

      Pros

      Freedom to manage your own projects. Lot of good technical challenges to solve.
      Always good scheduling for release cycles, have never had to crunch or work a weekend once here.

      Hiring is really good, bluebeam will never fill a position if its not right fit, this does lead to having positions open for very long time but it also makes it so everyone you work with is really great at their job.

      Benefits are good. Generous bonuses, 401k match, 100% of health/dental insurance covered by bluebeam, beer and wine in kitchen for after work happy hours, etc. Company cares about its employees and management is receptive to feedback.

      Cons

      Despite the office being very nice and well furnished, the open floorplan sucks for people who struggle to work in distracted environment. It can often be pretty noisy. Would honestly prefer to sit in a high wall cubicle or 1-4 person office.

      I have been working at Bluebeam full-time (More than 3 years)

      Pros

      Most of my co-workers are great. It's easy to become friends with the amount of communication you do with each other.

      Cons

      Management has been here since the beginning so the room to move up isn't easy. You will get "promoted" with a new job title but it's really the same job. Management doesn't have prior management experience so if you get stuck under someone who doesn't know what their doing, then it's not a good place to be. The company allows really smart and talented people to leave and that should be a clear sign that something is wrong but management will say it's "normal" and then make excuses for anything that doesn't go well.

      Advice to Management

      It's a place to work for a few years to gain experience and then look to go to a different software company for more pay and better management. The positive reviews on here are from HR and marketing.

      I have been working at Bluebeam full-time (More than a year)

      Pros

      I LOVE my coworkers here. I feel lucky to work with such smart, dedicated people. Bluebeam cares about its employees' well-being and development. I have grown as a professional so much in my ~2 years here.

      Bluebeam changes and reinvents itself every 6 months, which provides a lot of exciting opportunities for growth and experimentation with new roles and responsibilities.

      Cons

      This isn't a con per se, but you should be flexible and open to change if you want work here.

      Advice to Management

      Communication is key.
