    I have been working at SilverRail Technologies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Autonomous, direction is set and teams are left to get on with it.

    Cons

    Can be a little detached from head office in London and other office in Boston, but every global company has this issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep engaging with the team and showing the direction we're heading. The growth is exciting and we're all looking forward to taking rail in a new direction.

    Pros

    There is a fantastic, collaborative culture in the Brisbane office. Feels like you are part of a team.
    Very ambitious company, tackling some very challenging problems. There are lots of opportunities to get stuck into interesting technical problems.
    The office has partnered with the University of Queensland a couple of times on R&D projects.
    Flexible working hours and the ability to work from home are huge plusses.

    Cons

    Whilst there is a really nice team feeling in Brisbane, with other offices in London and Boston the time differences and geographical distance means there isn't the same 'togtherness' vibe across the entire company.

    I have been working at SilverRail Technologies part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    SilverRail has positive and supportive atmosphere. Everyone works in a team and wants to be a part of the community. It is a relatively casual work environment and every team member is approachable. There is an emphasis on true work/life balance and a good understanding that there is life beyond the work place.

    Cons

    Things can be intense and fast paced. This is not something I consider a con because there is always new challenges, but it might be difficult for others.

    Pros

    Young and dynamic organization
    Unique value proposition to work on
    Lots of opportunities to learn and help grow organization

    Cons

    Due to fast growth, organizational scaling issues have to be worked out. This is at the same time an opportunity to learn and build skills

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus and keep communicating
