    I have been working at Beeline full-time

    Pros

    Beeline is a very collaborative, family-oriented environment. When you become a member of this family, it is a privilege which you will soon come to recognize. They are very involved in the community as well as charities and also promote physical fitness and healthy lifestyles. Management is very open and your voice can be heard. I absolutely love my job here and plan on never leaving.

    Cons

    This company is suffering growing pains as it expands in the market. Like anything else, it will require some adjustments and endure some confusion or disillusion as this growth continues. Internal issues that were previously low on the list are now increasing in importance. As management struggles to adapt to the changing culture there have been some morale issues, but mainly among the younger employees who don't have as much experience in the real world workforce as some of the older employees. Beeline is trying to implement the Agile process which is quite a feat in itself, but management has not entirely bought into it which is causing some problems in office processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agile is a wonderful methodology but it has to be implemented as all or nothing. Management must absolutely be 100% behind the implementation or it will fail miserably. That is where we are at this moment, setup to fail. As they try to implement some aspects of Agile on the Product side of the house, the Client side is not part of it. In order for Agile to be successful, Management MUST be involved in every phase, all employees need adequate training, and Agile Experts need to come into the office and hold our hands through the first few weeks of total Agile conversion. Total immersion and dedication is required to be successful; piecemeal will not work in this instance no matter what middle management may be conveying. I am a Type A perfectionist, and to sit here and watch this unfold is very sad and disheartening. Unfortunately, I am in no position to sway management at this time so I have no other choice but to suck it up and stay the course as our boat takes on water. It's pretty obvious that upper management is clueless about this methodology, so after the failure of this so called "Agile Implementation", we will be right back to square one. I am hopeful that it may force some needed changes and perhaps Agile will be taken more seriously by everyone if they attempt to implement it again in the future.

    I have been working at Beeline full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beeline's culture is one-of-a-kind. It's a fun atmosphere with dedicated and hard working individuals who go above and beyond for a common goal. Life outside of work is respected and there is a focus on each individuals physical health, with such perks as gym membership reimbursement and group activities that promote fitness. Leadership is key. They support members of the team and company and department vision and principles. Simply stated, I love working here. Even on a really, really, really bad day.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons worth mentioning. Any "con" I could mention would just be nit-picky.

    I have been working at Beeline full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing culture with a focus on work/life balance, a macro-management approach, great training program and a fantastic culture of employees proud to be a part of Beeline. Community involvement and internal events promoting employee participation are a big plus.

    Cons

    Only being with the company less than a year I have yet to find any significant cons. So far this has been one of the best if not the best employer I have worked for in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! Constant focus on our current state and how we could be better is the reason Beeline is such a great company in the first place.

    Pros

    The people, the culture and the environment. Some of the brightest most hard working minds I have had the opportunity to work with. Great people to work with at every level. Flexible and courtous in regards to work life balance. Challenging yet, not overwhelming.

    Cons

    Wish we had better benefit coverage of the recent past and salaries would increase.

    Fairly minor but none the less:

    - remote workers need to be looped in more (even if it's just on free coffee days)

    I have been working at Beeline full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Almost too many to list...Work-life balance, work hard-play hard, casual dress, etc. There is a true sense of family and appreciation for everyone who works here. Probably the only company where I have been that has "guiding principles" and truly lives them. Doug Leeby is a super leader that really cares about fostering an awesome culture while driving company performance. Most everyone would run through a brick wall for him!

    Cons

    Beeline is making the transition from a small company doing everything it can to grow, to a stable mature organization that is scalable. The arrival of COO Autumn Vaupel has brought structure and process to Beeline that is really needed to take us to the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, I love this place and bleed Beeline green!
