    Pros

    The pay was competitive as were their benefits.

    I worked at HelloWorld full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My experience as a PM grew the most here. Great people, great company to work for overall. Was able to work from home a lot of time.

    Cons

    Had some issues with some employee(s) not being well managed that affected the team's morale.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees decent pay raises... 1% is hardly anything after 2 years. One year we didn't even get a raise.

    Pros

    Great people, attitudes of said people, atmosphere, willingness-to try new ideas, willingness to let people learn. Can get promoted rather quickly.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, under market value, little to no raises, always told “you’ll get more next year” which never happens. Benefits are great but health insurance is subpar. Be open about training, it’s kind of secretive, but if someone asks it usually gets approved. No one says anything about it being available.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people who stay. You have a loyalty program maybe you should take some time to look at that and give back to the people who are loyal to this place instead of giving false hope to people who deserve income raises.

    I have been working at HelloWorld full-time

    Pros

    -Flexible hours
    -You can work from home in order to get work done if you're either going to be working strange hours that day due for whatever reason, or you are sick and don't want to use up PTO.
    -Work-hard-play-hard culture wherein things are relaxed(dress code, beer on tap, pinball room) with the expectation that you'll get your work done.
    -People are genuinely friendly and many will go out of their way to help when they can.
    -Senior staff seem to be very knowledgeable and down-to-Earth.
    -When things are going smoothly, there's a 40 hour work week.

    Cons

    -Sales will promise the client the moon.
    -The client will often ask for changes to be made after giving approval on completed builds.
    -The hours can get heavier when things don't go smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    If you find a way to monetize last-minute revisions in a way that is palatable to the client, all parties involved would benefit.

    I have been working at HelloWorld full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    First and foremost, the company culture is amazing. It's a mix of fun and flexibility needed in today's workplace. HelloWorld "gets it" in terms of benefits, work/life balance, communication, openness, management style, etc. The workforce is diverse on all levels, and the pay is fair. Review processes are candid and beneficial. The work we do is sometimes difficult, but it's also cutting edge and ultimately fun and rewarding.

    Cons

    The commute to Southfield can be long for some, depending on where you live. Otherwise, there aren't many cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing; it's working!
