    I have been working at GovDelivery

    Pros

    The company is very passionate about the work they do, and it shows. Free snacks and beverages, Friday breakfasts and relaxed space outside of your cube to work make it a great working environment.

    Cons

    There is a bit of micro-managing at the top levels which can slow progress on projects and cause frustration. If members of the executive team aren't immediately all-seeing and all-knowing, they discard a suggestion and focus on something more comfortable to them. Voices are raised when frustration occurs, so expect outbursts and try not to take it personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan your strategy and goals for the future, but don't be so self-limiting that you discard a good idea just because you're not a seasoned expert in an area and you can't make the project fit into your current timeline. Sometimes the wait and slower progress yield an even greater outcome, and you can gain experience and knowledge in a previously unknown area.

    I have been working at GovDelivery full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great service for city and county governments, federal agencies, helps citizens stay connected with city hall and know more about what's happening.

    Cons

    Excessive turnover is disconcerting to current employees in all depts. Sudden management decisions and changes are often made without explanation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid micromanagement. Give direction and then stand back and let people do their jobs.
