    I have been working at hedgehog lab full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exciting, challenging and varied projects doing what I love - solving everyday problems for real people by considering the bigger picture. We are also getting free pizza again today so I consider that as a definite pro. The office is also wicked and a nice place to be.

    Cons

    Us not opening an office on Tokyo yet so I can move there for a year, still got the travel bug bad I need to fight it.

    Thanks for the advice and feedback. I love you used "yet" after Tokyo as we can't comment on future plans. Watch this space. I will pass your advice on to the Chief Design Officer who is striving to ensure design stand-ups are adhered to.

    Pros

    Teamwork is second to none, with locations on several continents the ability to work as a cohesive unit is a testament to the culture developed by the leadership team. The holistic approach to making sure the best services are offered to each customer, instead of just pumping out development projects ensures that the customers are well served and the hedgehog brand is recognized for quality and integrity.

    Cons

    The only con, is that we operate in an industry with such broad levels of service, as well as quality and integrity, that we are often dealing with clients who are being mislead by lower price point offers from competitors, they lose sight of what is best for their project and only see cost not value.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I feel your pain in relation to cheaper competitors who are selling snake oil but this is a problem the whole industry faces where the barrier to entry is low and clients have had bad experiences with previous organisations. Our mission is to educate our partners on good software development and work with them. This is an extension of our supportive and inclusive culture.

    I have been working at hedgehog lab full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people. Great clients. Entrepreneurial spirit. Always looking at what's next and taking steps to work on those projects.

    Cons

    Strong growth leads to some pains as company size changes what we do and how we do it. Sometimes we try out too many technologies.

    Thanks for the feedback. I think the growing pains are inevitable as we add people at the rate of 5+ per month but hopefully this will stabilise. Very fair point about new technologies and this is perhaps a fallback from the founders' approach of constantly embracing change in a world where every new week there is a disruption that could up-end our business and the way we work. We are working on smoothing and solidifying this so as time goes by we will see less and less of this happening once processes are firmed up.
