Enjoy the small company atmosphere that keeps it fun but works hard
Programmer (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – June 4, 2014
I like working in a small company. We often get to wear a lot of "hats" and help out with different roles and responsibilities.
Depending on the person some people may not like this aspect though as they want to be focused on a certain task or role, but often in a small company tasks and roles change and evolve over time.
The workplace has a very casual feel, casual dress, casual attitude, I like that you aren't expected to wear a suit and tie to make the "appearance" that you are working hard, we can get work done wearing shorts and sandals just as easily!
Management is accommodating to life that happens outside of work, I've been able to get approval to work remotely for a period of time when it was needed, nice to have some flexibility when you need it.
Getting along with other employees is very easy and creates a good
culture. We even get together outside of work to play cards together or Frisbee golf, we get to know each other better and have fun together, these types of events we just setup on our own but the company also sponsors outside of work events for the employees to get together at, such as a softball or volleyball team, a kernels game, that sort of thing.
I work on the IT development side of things and work can get pretty fast paced at times with ever changing requirements and tasks that can change on you daily. So some people might get stressed or frustrated at times due to these things but I keep in mind that being a service oriented company they are trying to keep the clients happy so they can keep growing the company.
Great people, casual, fun, hard working
