Pros

Free meals, flexible hours, work from home opportunities, great people.

Cons

No 401k match (although this is changing next year)

Advice to Management

Invest in IT development. There are far too many groups using manual processes that could be avoided with some dev.

Pros

Time off is unlimited but they actually let you take time off. Work/Life balance exists. Swag is better than average. Engaging projects that push my skills. There are actual bonus' and yearly pay increases. Free lunch is nice (not amazing food but free).

Cons

401k match is tiny. Agile sprints focus on getting something out the door even when it's not ready. arbitrary project due dates push out bad code. Health insurance is poor.

Advice to Management

better healthcare choices, better 401k match.

Pros

- Discounted lunches - Gym and showers - Free coffee and soda bar - Free fresh fruit - Bus stop near by - Frontrunner accessible - Vested 401k match - Flexible schedule - Work from home opportunities - Pay is higher than minimum wage - It's easy to get hired here

Cons

The company displays cyclical poor decision making. Your input does not matter here, unless it aligns with what your manager thinks. Making a positive change is extremely difficult, and the trend of cyclical behavior means that any change you try to make is ultimately meaningless. Management has next to zero follow-up, strings people along, gives endlessly empty and false promises, acknowledges poor morale and seems to not care whatsoever by not working to overcome it, values quantity over quality and strongly displays this in extremely poorly planned incentives that encourages dishonesty and poor quality work, fails to 1. hire competent processors and leadership, and 2. fails to take appropriate action against toxic and malicious leadership. Departments don't want to work together which makes work even harder. Many areas are under-staffed, making it more difficult for anyone to assist each other. The pay here is not very competitive. There have been several pay raise freezes with minimal annual raises. It does not matter if your performance review shows that you have been an excellent worker historically. It is very difficult to get a raise even with the new tier structure. They said you'd get a raise opportunity every 90 days, but they deeply failed in that and consistently have done so, despite consistent efforts and communications. This is related to the poor follow-up. Communication is extremely poor. No one seems to know what they are doing and are hardly ever available to talk in office.

Advice to Management

Follow the company values. Be good, do good. Recognize that most of the people working here are actually human beings with real lives and issues to deal with. Recognize that housing costs are skyrocketing while the pay they are receiving, even with years of experience, is not matching up to that cost of living. Recognize that the way you treat people SETS. THE. CULTURE. People are most likely to quit when leadership is poor. If you have a high turnover rate, maybe take a second of self reflection and see if you are the cause. Chances are... You, or your team leads/supervisors are! People can only take so much abuse before they leave. Stop abusing your workers.
