    I worked at airG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people I worked with were a joy to be with during my time there. I learned so much from them. My managers were very clear with what they wanted from me and patient whenever I was unclear with their requirements.

    Cons

    At times there was a lack of work coming my way, which my managers were aware of. They did give me this opportunity to work on personal projects.

    I worked at airG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fairly flat company, and opportunities to wear many hats.

    Cons

    Poor pay, dishonest and disorganized management kills any potential for future growth. Only a stepping stop for junior developers to gain some experience before moving on. Lies about bonus that is never paid out.

    I worked at airG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly & non-stuffy work environment. Very flat structure - lots of idea and info sharing. Some interesting problems to solve and never a boring moment. A good place to learn behind the scenes on telecom networks, both business and technical.

    Cons

    Management (CEO) is a workaholic, always at the office. It's a bit scary... also means there's not much 'down' time...

    Pros

    The best part about airG is the the culture and the team.

Other pros: - flex start time - free breakfast daily - beer Fridays weekly - team lunch outings monthly - weekday company social events (yes, get paid to play) - standing desks - herman miller chairs - catered lunch & learns - kids friendly family fun events I feel management & HR go the extra mile to take care of the employees.

    Cons

    - Office can get almost too quiet at times - Hard to get to know people from other teams as some teams really keep to themselves
