    Client services has the worst management members

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsCentrally located, close to public transportation, feels like a fun start up (from the outside)

    Cons1. Managers don't really care, they will make you feel miserable every day and do nothing when you are being abused by a male colleague even after expressing yourself.
    2. Manager does not listen to feedback and hires colleagues that have the least technical aptitude - only to build a empire of their own.
    3. You do all the work, while your manager and other ass kissing colleagues take all the credit.
    4. Upper management does not follow the open door policy that they preach about.
    5. At the end of the day if you can't play the office politics, you can't work here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has a lot of potential, but the management team is there to stop the success of the company. I only hope the founders realize the black moles within the management team before it is too late

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Really bad company to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNot anything positive feedback on company.

    ConsI was hired in March 2013 and was laid off after 4 months for no reason.The company was not really doing good.I feel they should not advertise and hire people and lay them off in couple of months.The immediate managers are bad.My manager had no clue and was not technical at all.He just used to expect results and there was no proper transition of job duties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease see and understand what happening below you and how low level the employees really feel.This will really help the company to grow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Highly DO NOT recommend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood people, fun social events, great location in downtown SF

    ConsCompany is currently going through a RIF, second in three years, and the quality contributors are always the ones effected negatively. No career advancement because no one takes the time to care or guide properly. Exec team and management are pitiful, no one can take the reigns and lead the direction of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire the proper financial advisers to avoid going through a potential third round of layoffs. Don't tell employees this may happen again because cutting people shouldn't always be the option. Be transparent about what's going on because employees know more than you think.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Had that startup, world changing feel in the beginning

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt was a close-knit family and everybody had the same focus on building the company and attracting top customers. The back-end development of the software engine was very good and a quite a bit of thought was put into the moving pieces.

    ConsHighly against working remotely. It was actually discouraged. The best contributing employees are ones that don't need to come into the office for 16 hours a day.
    A great deal of focus was upon marketing rather than sales or building up the product or handling client services.
    High turn-over with the initial senior management that helped build the foundations of the company. Actually nobody from the old senior management is left there except the founders. Multiple client services VP.
    In reading some of the positive reviews, it tends to have a marketing flare. The negative ones are more honest.

    Interesting company but too focused on marketing. Huge emphasis on making it seem like a Google or FB which it isn't.

    (Current Employee)

    ProsFun. Can't say that everyday doesn't have it's laughs. Passion. Need lots of passion to strive to maintain momentum.

    ConsCurrent opensource Mahout technology developed by past customer took it's toll on our enterprise clients (public knowledge. google mahout overstock). As more and more opensource becomes readily available, the differentiation factor diminishes greatly. In looking at the rest of the comments here, I see a general theme of marketing blurbery. That's where I see the fault of the company really lies. It's too focused on marketing and being glitzy rather than being innovative. If a former customer created a workable solution and threw it out in the opensource world...then you have to strive to innovate rather than change marketing and keep pushing the old same stuff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the marketing budget perhaps and put it into engineering? Focus more on creating product differentiators. That's really the key. How do I keep my company on the cutting edge, especially when opensource alternatives have eaten away at our earnings.

    Rich Relevance- Growing Startup

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsRapidly growing startup, useful service.

    ConsThe organization is dysfunctional and unethical if not actually dishonest- misleading and cheating vendors and playing them off against each other. Some managers perform tasks which should be performed by others which require substantial amounts of time away from their core duties and which is counterproductive to the work of others. The facilities are overcrowded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStopping trying to manipulate and cheat your vendors. Try to treat them fairly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Paranoid, know it all management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    Prosinteresting market potential but many other competitors and same technology out there. not sure if technology can not be duplicated elsewhere

    Consstay away. Incompetent, fire fighting management who creates crisis in order to feel good

    Advice to Senior Managementget a life. Let its people do their job. Don't control everything.

    Lots of room for improvement

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople are smart and friendly at lower ranks
    Lots of internal jokes so people take things in strides

    ConsUnhappy, burnt out people. No work-life balance there. Lots of emphasis on marketing and fluff but no real structure to service. Rather than focus on creativity, the focus seems to be "improve the overall image of the company" which shouldn't be the solution.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on problems, not on cover up

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
