Suggestions for improvement
- Continue communicating changes and reasons, and be open to employee concerns. Don't play semantic games like calling someone's office a "Team Room"... if execs are going to get offices, than just say so. Don't abandon development in Mpls and EC, and don't send all the new projects to Poland.
What I like about the company
The company has been able to maintain a "startup culture" for a long time even though it's about 13 years old now. It's generally a fun place to work where everyone works hard but enjoys what they do and who they work with. Work/life balance has been good. We're moving to a new building soon which will be much nicer and have better amenities than our current building. Decent benefits and perks.
What I dislike about the company
Company is undergoing some significant changes leadership-wise, as well as phenomenal growth (company has nearly doubled in size over the past year or so) and only time will tell if the direction of the new leadership team, as well as this growth, will maintain the company as a great place to work, even though the leadership team says that is their goal. A new Poland development center is in the process of being opened up which has caused some fear internally on how this will affect the existing development culture. Subtle cultural changes are already happening, such as executives getting offices where the old culture said "everyone was equal and part of the open office environment".
