Good pay, decent benefits, flexwork options

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsCompensation (base salary + bonus + stock grants) are higher than most established IT companies. Plenty of internal collaboration technology to enable work from practically anywhere with an Internet connection. Fairly good autonomy as long as you do your job well (setting objectives and achieving them).

ConsVision/strategy at exec level is very good though execution is typically slowed by too many layers of management. Career advancement is challenging because 1) company is no longer growing rapidly, and 2) not much attrition at senior levels.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to sharpen focus on execution!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
