I have been working at Symplicity Corporation

Pros

* Management and supervisors who care about their employees
* Small company with opportunities to make a real difference
* Casual but hard-working company culture
* Open communication from bottom up
* Above-average raises and bonuses

Cons

Some growing pains as the company has tripled in size, resulting in ghettoized product lines with inconsistent and sometimes haphazard interoffice communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think more long term and encompassing rather than being immediately reactive to a single complaint or suggestion.

    Pros

    Rapidly growing and progressive company that is an industry leader, great benefits, good pay, stellar, knowledgeable, loyal co-workers, opportunity to enjoy the convenience of working from home if that's what you'd like, opportunity to assist clients meet their goals is rewarding

    Cons

    Often inadequate communication from mgmt, mgmt distrust employees, little positive feedback, too many knee-jerk reactions/decisions, volatile work environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and remember you hired them for their abilities, so let them use them. Have a plan and stick to it, not changing abruptly as some knee-jerk reaction to a client comment. Believe in your plan and your employees abilities to carry it out.

    Pros

    Developers have the option to "upgrade" to working remotely after 2 years in-office. Large bonuses and raises available upon completion of a project.

    Cons

    Organization is unstructured; there are 2 managers and everyone reports directly to one of them. Managers get into weekly screaming matches. Minimal to no guidance for junior developers. Zero transparency into the business (option to buy stock after 2 years with the company, but no one will give you details on the financials or tell you how many shares there are outstanding).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to have screaming matches, at least sound insulate your offices. (Or, better yet, conduct yourselves in a calm and professional manner at all times.) Additionally, provide support (guidance, mentorship) for junior developers that have never worked on large projects by themselves.
