    I have been working at Critical Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good company to work, especially for those that are starting - An excellent environment like a family - Company transparency at high level

    Cons

    - Some projects with really deprecated technology - Not so transparency at micromanagement - Low-level salaries, some times very unfair

    Advice to Management

    To retain talent and add more experience to projects it's urgent to pay better. In other hand what motivates Engineers is the innovation and usage of new/great technologies, let's capture more projects in that sense.

    Pros

    We have a good notebook, just this

    Cons

    Several. They tell you that you are Critical, but you are hired by another company and work under the Critical domain, you are not hired directly, you do not have the benefits, you cannot attend Critical events because you are allocated. But they want to convince you that they are "part of the family" and have all the Critical structure at their disposal. They could be honest with subcontractors and take the... outsourcing stance

    I have been working at Critical Software full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company has a quite vibrant and entrepreneurial culture. Teams are generally encouraged to work with great autonomy and the hierarchy is flat. Leadership is pretty democratic and gives everyone a voice. The number of spinoff companies and joint ventures that have emerged through the years (the latest being a JV with BMW) speaks for itself. Also, the company works with top customers worldwide so no shortage of... challenging projects here. Perhaps the most unique aspect in Critical is its culture - it is founded in solid values that are part of everyday life and not just nice catchy phrases in the wall.

    Cons

    Nothing obvious really. I really love it here.

    Advice to Management

    Stay vigilant with fast growth - integrating hundreds of people per year in the company culture is not easy. Culture requires time to sink in. Also pay attention to the "brilliant jerks" type characters.
