    Fast paced, get things done mentality lets you be who you want to be

    (Current Employee)
    Saint Paul, MN

    Pros* GovDelivery has endless opportunities, but you have to be a self starter; nobody will hold your hand and help you succeed. You're generally told to get something done but it's up to you to figure out the details on how to do it. Some may find that a con, but I think it's a huge pro.
    * IT/Technology is viewed upon as a strategic weapon, not a cost center like some other companies I've worked at, and it's great to hear that message from the CEO.
    * Plenty of room for career growth at most positions if you're willing to step up and take it
    * The Chief Operating Officer is a great leader and he brings an energy that makes the company fun to work at. He also brings great ideas to help improve innovation.
    * Generous bonus program
    * For only $30 every three months, you can join the "Breakfast Club," where the company will cater in breakfast on Friday morning. It could be a breakfast sandwich, quiche, muffins, French toast, etc, but it's a great perk.
    * Company frequently has happy hour in the office and brings in cake, cookies, appetizers, etc for everyone to celebrate and unwind.

    Cons* The company is growing so fast that there's always a LOT of work to do, and while nobody tells you that it's required to put in a lot of extra hours, you'll fail if you don't. This can lead to reduced work/life balance.
    * Along similar lines, the amount of vacation time you get is small compared to most places
    * If you're looking for a laid back, stress-free place, this is not the company for you (personally I'd find that boring...)

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up, we're clearly on the right track.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    GovDelivery Offers Many Opportunities for Growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Saint Paul, MN

    ProsThere is a lot of opportunity to advance. People that work for GovDelivery are very smart and talented as a rule. GovDelivery provides opportunities for its employees to learn and grow with the company. The company cares about its clients and their missions. There is a congenial atmosphere most of the time.

    ConsThere are many top-down decisions made that seem sudden and are not necessarily well explained. The company is extremely sales-driven, sometimes to the detriment of serving the current customer and employee. The workload can be overwhelming, as the company tends to ride the line in terms of having the appropriate number of staff. Expect to be stressed out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis was in the process of being changed when I left, but at the time it was clear that there needed to be more employee involvement. Workers could use more ways to feel empowered and part of the ongoing success of the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Room to grow, hard face paced work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsWork in a quick and engaging atmosphere on issues that matter. Clients are very happy and organization is continually trying to improve. Feedback is atleast heard if not instantly taken.

    ConsAtmosphere is fun but very challenging, long hours and lots of hard work. Teams are constantly influx, with lots of turnover and new hires. Mid-level management is not yet worked out.

    A small company growing quickly with growing pains to match but great opportunities for learning and advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Saint Paul, MN

    ProsLeadership is accessible, high growth leads to advancement opportunities, great market, strong commitment to customer satisfaction, solid product development, and a very laid back atmosphere.

    ConsAbnormally high employee turnover, while typically explainable, is still disconcerting. Also, while high growth often leads to advancement opportunities, larger companies afford more diversity of options. DC office can be degrading towards St. Paul office (classic "East Coast vs. Midwest" mindset).

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove retention, reduce friction between DC and St. Paul teams, add resources in technical support to ensure prompt response times.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
