    I have been working at Coconut Software (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Opportunity to work with fantastic people.

    - Work place culture is very highly valued - you will have no problem finding your place at Coconut.

    - All employees (including the CEO!) are exceedingly friendly approachable.

    - Opinions of employees are very highly valued. If you have something to say, you can feel assured that you will be heard.

    - High degree of autonomy and trust from upper management. It's great to feel that you are dependable and trustworthy -- to be valued!

    - Kitchen cupboards and refrigerator are always stocked with snacks and other goodies! Unlimited coffee!

    - Affordance of being surrounded by competent, knowledgeable individuals. As a software developer, it is vital that I am able to quickly bounce ideas off others' -- and to receive a rapid and adequate response.

    - Flex hours are amazing -- seriously, this cannot be understated. Especially in a relatively small city like Saskatoon where hours of operation are typically the same from work place to work place and it can be difficult to find the time to attend different appointments. Coconut is very lenient if you have somewhere important that you need to be.

    - Very casual office environment.

    - First day on the job they gave me my favourite chocolate bar -- as well as a brand spankin' new MacBook Pro!

    There are way too many good things to list about this company. If you're an awesome person and you're even considering applying -- just do it! You won't regret it :)

    Cons

    - Like most software companies, bureaucracy takes a serious toll on internal decision making in the company and detracts from the pleasure of writing code. Again, this is not in any way a reflection of Coconut individually as a company. This is a problem that exists within most, if not all, software companies.
