    I worked at Demonware full-time

    Pros

    - lots of vacation time, 5 week plus bonus xmas days
    - flexible hours
    - full kitchen eg. salad bar, deli meats, breakfast things
    - provides a great environment for interns and people starting out their career

    Cons

    - no real direction
    - management are in positions that they have no experience in
    - tech debt that keeps growing and really follow things through before moving to the next shiny thing
    - decision makers are selected based on time worked at company and connections to management. The right people are not selected which causes support to be challenging
    - ask questions about turn-over and direction as some teams are better than others and their managers are better suited for their jobs which make the experience much better
    - get clear understanding about crunch time hours so you are aware that some longs days(months) will require longer hours

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep everyone other than managers happy. Too many people have left Demonware that were not heard and were not happy. When the underlying issues is the same, management is probably to blame.
