    I worked at Baynote full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart people-no really, I mean it. Great executive team. Fun social events. On-site (nice) gym with showers. Technology is very cool..customers actually $ee the uplift in sales. Open and collaborative atmosphere-- a start-up feel with just the right amount of processes and procedures.

    Cons

    Office location was too far away from my home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the transparency..the employees feel valued and informed. Employees like the Brown bag lunches with the executives, they should be offered a few times a month.

    Pros

    Wokring at Baynote has been one of the best experiences in my professional career. The caliber of the employees is impressive. I get to work with some of the brightest people in the Valley who have a unique combination of great intelligence and friendliness that you just don't see every day in the Software Industry. Everyone is very approachable from the Admins to the CEO. I've definitely found a second home here and would recommend friends/colleagues here in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    None- I mean it's still a job, of course I'd rather be outside : )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the open communication. Really feel like a part of what's happening.

    Pros

    Baynote is a place where you can really have a voice in the company, and people really appreciate your ideas. Many people have advanced very quickly, and we have a small, friendly group that’s casual and fun.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    I have been working at Baynote

    Pros

    Baynote is a fast growing silicon valley startup. It is a fun place to work with all kinds of interesting people from startups, ecommerce and enterprise software companies. Senior management is very experienced and taking the company in a good direction with lots of potential.

    Cons

    Fast growing startups have a lot of work to do with many things that need to be done and often not enough people to do everything, which can be frustrating sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Execute, execute, execute...

    I have been working at Baynote

    Pros

    New CEO, COO /VP of Sales - changing how we do business. Great vibe - making waves the competition wont even see coming....

    Cons

    Not located in Santana Row, need a gym and shower facilities. Need more choices in the break room. Too much junk food, not enough healthy snacks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the communication coming. It makes the team work harder when we all know what's on the path in front of us.

    I have been working at Baynote

    Pros

    Excellent people, from individual contributors to the executive team. Genuinely nice people to work with. A very interesting product. Great customers. The company is not an early stage startup, yet moves pretty fast, trying to address its many challenges.

    Cons

    The company is in transition, so some degree of chaos is present. People who like everything to be in perfect order will not find this an easy environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring great people. Keep communicating with the team. Don't worry too much about company culture - it's pretty good already!

    I have been working at Baynote

    Pros

    I have been with the company for a few months now and the changes are excellent. The new leadership team has really made positive changes. I like the new communication style and the energy. We just brought in a new CEO, COO, and VP of Development and they all have great backgrounds. The COO was just put in charge of sales and that was a great change.

    All of these changes have really made Baynote a lot more fun.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to do. In many cases we are being asked to do a lot of things that we were not hired to do and so we don't do any of them well.

    The facilities aren't great, but they also improved them a lot recently. I don't like open cubicles and it can be noisy sometimes. Sales and marketing are upstairs now and they are in big cubes. That may be worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The team huddles are very important. I like knowing what is going on and having the leadership team treat us all as part of the team. This year is off to a great start.

    I have been working at Baynote

    Pros

    Weekly team meetings that promote communication through all levels of the business. Individual and team contests to drive a fun, competitive work environment. Opportunities to learn from extremely smart and motivated peers and mentors.

    Cons

    Training is not optimally structured for over-coming learning curve for employees fairly new to internet technology. Would like to have on-site showers/gym to promote healthy lifestyle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking ahead and driving for our best. Your enthusiasm and focus motivates us to succeed.
