    It's a shame that middle management can ruin all of the wonderful things about working for this company.

    I worked at Snagajob

    Pros

    Excellent CEO, fun events, casual attire, young company, easy commute, good benefits, attractive office, free concert tickets, volunteer opportunities available

    Cons

    8:30am-5:30pm, no recognition if not in sales, poor middle managers, undefined career path, little to no useful personal development opportunities, unrewarded overtime, no work-from-home option, obvious favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is excellent, but middle management is seriously lacking. Middle managers pick favorites and make it obvious to everyone, so whoever is left out of that group is left to weather all of the managers' bad moods. Also, as a whole, there is little room to grow within the company unless you come in doing what you want to do, or if you come in as something other than sales and want to get into sales. Typical of most small companies, the only way to move up at all is if someone leaves/gets fired, and even then it's not likely; although promotions from within do occur, more often than not, external hires seem to take precedence. Only those well-known favorites are likely to be considered for movement into different departments. Sean has really created the foundation for a fantastic work culture and he is great, but there are weak links in the middle who ruin it for a lot of employees.

    I worked at Snagajob

    Pros

    Great people
    Decent suite of products
    Decent work/life balance
    Decent compensation
    Fun extracurricular activities
    Generous vacation package
    Nice location
    Nice facilities

    Cons

    Middle management is so horribly ineffective, inexperienced, and biased it is not even funny.
    Middle management does not stick up for their teams-them first, then team second.
    Typically hire too quickly, then realize they don't have the market or territories to support those hires.Leads to layoffs.

    I worked at Snagajob full-time

    Pros

    - Decent Benefits
    - Could be good opportunity

    Cons

    - I understand moving fast and breaking glass along the way (Good for a company), but this company is breaking glass in many directions and changing their vision and strategy multiple times in a short period of time causing internal confusion. Inexperienced middle management who cannot take the company to the next level. Experience is just not there.
    - Does not let the sales team breath - Its healthy to do that
    - Marketing - Need bigger marketing initiatives to hit targeted goals (Fortune level goals with 5-10 employee marketing budget). You have the money, use it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Research your future opportunities before you move on them. Transitioning to a software company is not easy. Make sure you have your ducks in a row.
    - Brand your company. Their are many competitors in your space that have been doing it for much longer. Don't assume they are going to come to you.
