    I have been working at Base2 Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work / life balance is stellar. You won't find a smarter, more genuine group of people. You'll get to work on some pretty cool projects. We have some huge opportunities coming up and it's great to be a part of that. The company is in great shape and the next 6 - 12 months are going to be huge, I think. They'll really set us up for the next 5 - 10 years. I continue to be pleasantly surprised by each new person we hire and I work with. Nobody feels like just a number in the office - most people left bigger companies because they wanted to make an impact and be part of a close-knit team.

    Cons

    Sometimes people can seem like they're heading in all different directions.

    Advice to Management

    Work on unifying our messaging and getting everyone on the same page.

    Pros

    Good work environment! Although everyone is working on their own project, people are always willing to lend a hand. Management is very transparent and easy to reach.

    Cons

    The office can get quiet, but that just means everyone is hard at work.

    Great team to work with. Engaged management team.

    Perhaps a little more work on the health coverage. Certainly not a deal breaker.

    I have been working at Base2 Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Base2 is a solid, mature, no frills and no bs place with experienced people who have been around the block and know their stuff. I couldn't care less about having florescent bean bag chairs in the office or a clown troupe show every Friday... I want to do good work and get the job done and go live my life, and Base2 is all about that. There are perks like free lunches, stocked kitchen snacks, company parties, that kind of thing which I appreciate and enjoy, but more than that I appreciate them putting their money into their employees - like bonuses, training, not letting people go even when they're on the bench, sit-or-stand desks (a recent addition), improving the benefits package, etc.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints. It's easy to make a wish list of stuff you'd like, but there's no substitute for owners/execs/managers that genuinely want to do right by their people and go about their business with that in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Please just keep doing what you're doing. I appreciate: the regular honest communication; spending money on employees rather than frills; flex schedule & work/life balance; modest attitudes & realistic ambitions and expectations.

    I have been working at Base2 Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    (+) Manager is super motivating: Good work receives constant appreciation. Manager's feedback constantly encourages me to do more and better. (And also to stick to Base2 longer) (+) Micromanagement is absent.
    (+) With the flat hierarchical system, any one from management regardless of their seniority is as approachable as the rest of the workforce.
    (+) CEO, management and front desk always appear cheerful and happy. Everyone is not just open but always welcoming new ideas
    (+) Colleagues do not sound over worked or stressed out. The office mood though professional mostly stays light and fresh
    (+) Good growing cultural diversity
    (+) Options to choose from standing / sitting / both workstations
    (+) Public transport / parking reimbursement
    (+) Located seconds from the BTC, Bellevue Mall and Restaurants
    (+) Nice decor, beautifully decorated lounge. View of the Cascades
    (+) Several free lunch days a month.

    Cons

    (-) Health benefits though better than last year, could still be improved further
    (-) Building and the facilities at the building premises are outdated
    (-) As seen in most tech companies male - female ratio is heavy on the male end. The 7:1 ratio goes further down if only the IT staff is accounted for (meaning minus the HR, Recruiting, accounting, Front Desk)

    Advice to Management

    Stay just as you are!

    Pros

    Base2 just lowered the cost of my HSA, and contributes to my savings account. How many places are making your health care benefits cheaper? They also added another paid holiday.

    Cons

    After the free lunch friday's, brown bags lunches, social events, and interesting projects, its hard to find cons.

    Pros

    Very good Manager (that I reported to).
    Good company and very friendly staff (I am talking about week 1).
    One of the few companies that understand work-life balance. After 4 years at Google, Base2 is on same level for me when it comes to 'how happy every morning thinking about going to work'.
    Very friendly team members that are always enthu to help you out with any info you need.
    The industry my project is in (Aero) needs lot of time to ramp up. But, the team support made the ramp up quick and fast and easy.

    Cons

    Driving upto client place is the only negative thing. But again, allowing flexible timing by Base2 has made the long slow commute avoidable.
