    I have been working at 2359 Media full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very flat structure - you will find the directors sitting among the teammates, having meals and snacks with them, and most importantly, opening up a lot of decision-making to the employees. As an employee here, I feel empowered and responsible for my work - though it also means you won't get to hide and be anonymous - you need to be directly accountable and be in charge of your work and career. If you are the type who takes pride in your work, then this is a great place to be.

    There is close to no politics here - most employees, including the founders, are still very young, and you get the sense that everyone is in this together, exploring new frontiers and learning and growing together. That is not to say that there won't be any politics as the company grows bigger with more people - but this place is as good as it gets when it comes down to no-nonsense and no-backstabbing culture.

    Cons

    Office can get crowded sometimes, and different teams sometimes have to queue for precious meeting rooms time. But that's changing, as the company is getting another office soon.

    Training and on-boarding for new employees need more work as there are not much orientation and structured training - but people are generally open to guiding and teaching you and showing you the rope.

    Pros

    Steep learning bell curve, able to learn a lot and everyone in the company are all very willing to teach and share.

    Family like culture and we get different events every month to try something new.

    Also the company takes the bottom up approach hence you're able to set your own goals and discuss with your superiors.

    Cons

    Don't expect anyone to spoon feed you. Working here requires a lot initiative.

    Flexible, Flat Management, Majority of work in software consulting

    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Singapore (Singapore)
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at 2359 Media full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Flexible working policies
    - Lots of experience to do software consulting.
    - Flat management structure, which means that the leaders of the organization could have a direct conversation with the staff regarding anything (from day-to-day operations to product development, and software consulting).
    - Most of the employees are young, so you can expect to meet more dynamic individuals.

    Cons

    - Sometimes there are just too much consulting work to do.
    - There's no clear vision regarding career advancement, because it's a relatively young company, and most of the work are done by small teams doing consulting, not a large team building a specific product or service.
    - If you're a seasoned software engineer, expect to meet more fresh graduates, and inexperienced software engineers.
