    I have been working at CAKE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As I was interviewing for a new role, CAKE was one of the handful of companies I was entertaining. In learning about their product, process, organization and getting to know their management team, I was most impressed with all of the above and decided to join. My gut feeling was correct! The organization is extremely collaborative and filled with extremely intelligent, passionate employees. We're roughly only five years old but you would never think it as CAKE is a well-oiled machine growing at an extremely rapid rate. I truly enjoy the individuals I work with and how I am treated here as an employee. Everyone who is here is truly happy to be here and it definitely shows. I love going to work each and every day!

    Cons

    Having to decide where to travel as we have an open vacation policy here!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and I appreciate how well CAKE is run!

    I have been working at CAKE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company is poised for great scale, employees enjoy working together across different divisions in a collaborative manner, technology is continuously evolving to dominate the marketplace, resources readily available and continuously updated

    Cons

    They don't actually feed you CAKE as a new hire.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay transparent and approachable. The relationships you work to build with each employee and the way you invest in individual career development and growth is inspiring and unique in the industry.

    I have been working at CAKE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with CAKE for almost 5 years and have had a very positive experience. The company continues to remain as one of the innovative leaders in the industry. We have been providing a SAAS product to performance marketing companies for more than 5 years and are now using our experience and expertise with brands and advertisers directly. The technology is outstanding and every employee has an opportunity to shape and mold the product. I have been given several opportunities for growth and truly feel that management has invested in me. Oh, and we have an open holiday plan!!!

    Cons

    CAKE has not been around for 20 years servicing a mature market. Instead, we rely on feedback from customers and continue to build new functionality to service an evolving market. This may come across as a negative to you. Instead, I find this to be challenging and therefore requires every employee to remain engaged and on their toes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in company culture. Our company is experiencing crazy growth spurts year over year and I'd love to see the start up vibe remain as we get larger.

    Pros

    First and foremost CAKE makes a great technology that the market needs and loves. Everyone in the company is exceedingly helpful, smart and motivated to make CAKE an even bigger success than it is. Unlike many start ups, the company's business model is extremely sound.

    Cons

    There are challenges, like any high growth company, but nothing unusual, and the organization makes a concerted effort to address and solves any significant challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Management has done a great job creating and articulating their vision for the company's growth over the next several years. My advice would be to stay ambitious, stay humble and continue to execute at a high level.

    I worked at CAKE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Other than the frequent travel there really aren't many Pros here

    Cons

    Out of touch with reality. Pricing is more than double to their competition. Former sales folks have "turned into engineers" Senior Management has hired some "real winners" The new product is NOT what it is said to be.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the old founder back, that was the 1st mistake. Don't worry about being the next big thing especially when the product is basically overpriced and nearly obsolete in the space. You already know this hence the new product that really is the old one with a new name. Who are you fooling?

    I worked at CAKE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Semi bleeding edge, but lacking in office equipment.

    Cons

    The only nice way to put it is that they were less than honest about everything. From the job description to start times in the morning it was all just a big charade.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be honest with people. Maybe go back to school and learn something about business ethics.
