    Pros

    Work life balance and 90-minute lunches are the big perks at Bandwidth. You can essentially come and go as you please so long is there isn't a huge project looming, at which point they grind developers to the bone. Paid insurance premiums are nice. Lots of free t-shirts. Fun co-workers. The CEO is truly a great man and knows everyone by name.

    Cons

    Management seems to lack a sense of direction; priorities change on almost a daily basis with little explanation as to why. There isn't much room for growth internally and pay is generally much lower than other companies in the area. Generally no clear career path; if you ask about it, you'll get a generalized answer and a loose promise of something down the road with little follow through. No bonuses or stock options for most employees. Very top heavy - directors and VPs for just about everything you can think of. Some don't even have anyone reporting to them. HR needs a tough look under the magnifying glass - It's hard to get a timely response on anything that runs through HR including interviews/hiring, compensation reviews or personnel issues. Lots of turnover in the past year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to your roots and evaluate why so many talented people are leaving. Free t-shirts and workout lunches only go so far. Review your compensation structure and get on par with the rest of the industry. While pay has always been an issue at Bandwidth, opportunity for growth was there several years ago. It's now been capped by the hiring of so many managers, directors, and VPs. Keep the benefits free as long as you can (if not for this, more people would probably leave). Improve communication and inform others about the reasons for sudden changes and seemingly knee-jerk decisions. Bandwidth has the potential to be so much more than what it is.
