I have been working at Clickatell as a contractor for less than a year
Pros – Saturated market so plenty of competing offers to choose from.
Cons – For the 10 months I consulted with the company, I observed that management LACKS vision and innovation. They are scared to take risks and blow off strategic partnerships which could garner more revenues for the company. They fail to recognize opportunities to capitalize on evolving technologies and have not done anything to keep up with competitive offers. Projects are mismanaged and have poor execution when launching new websites, products, internal training, etc. One executive preaches about execution, but has been at the helm of failed web and product launches.
Advice to Senior Management – Shape up. LISTEN to your employees.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Clickatell as a contractor
Pros – Legacy Business is still doing well –they are not running out of money or business
Cons – Do not listen to their claim of being like a startup, simply based on their VC funding. If you are not simply a “yes” man type, you will not want to be in the business. They will make your life miserable if you should ever question decisions or strategies, or try to be more engaged. The leadership does not want to admit any weakness, nor take actions to fix them.
Advice to Senior Management – Productivity and Accountability are critical. Without that you will never have the success you are working toward, and continue to struggle with at the slow pace you operate in currently. Skills matter in today's work environment, not seniority.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
