    Pros

    If you like the "Start Up" type of feel then you will probably like it. You can take naps in the office, they have free snacks and provided company sponsored happy hours.

    Cons

    The company is in Sarasota, so that means there isn't much to do. Be prepared to be bored or commute a long way from Tampa. If you like the suburbs then I you'll do fine.

    Also, I left because I was bored.

    Pros

    Decent snacks and beverages in the break room, probably the only start up in the Sarasota area, decent pay, free dinner when you work more than 8 hours (i.e. everyday!)

    Cons

    This is the most toxic workplace I have ever experienced. Staff is expected to work 10+ hour days regularly - there is zero work/life balance. Expectations/requirements change on a day to day basis, so that thing you had to stay at work until 11 last night to finish is scrapped today. Little to no appreciation shown by management for the staff and the turnover rate was extremely high -- every day was just a waiting game to see when you'd get fired.

    Not the ideal working environment

    Pros

    They had a really great break room with snacks. If you forgot your lunch, you we're usually ok. The pay was very good. At the time while I was there, they covered 100% of the health insurance. I believe we also had a free gym membership which was really nice.

    Cons

    I didn't stay here long for a lot of reasons. In the position I was in I saw a lot of things that I knew were dishonest and blatant scams. We would rip off a lot of our competitors websites and copy their designs to the tee. Fake blogs were created to pump up the Clickbooths image...so a lot of these previous reviews could easily be from someone in their PR department. The company culture was unlike any other I've ever experienced. They had a game room 'available' for use. However, if you went in there to use them, it was immediately assumed that you were slacking off or planning to stay late that night to work. Taking lunch breaks out of the office was discouraged. Official office hours were 9am-6pm...but the CEO would usually roll in at noonish and work until 2am. So usually the big things would come up at 6pm when you're wrapping up with work. You weren't told to stay late, but it was certainly expected if you wanted your job. I was called in the work on New Years day and then the project was never used. Employees were treated like trading cards. No matter what, your job is never secure. It was kind of like everyone was always wondering who would get the axe next. There we're three types of people who worked here: 1) Disliked their job but didn't care because they were paid well. 2) Disliked their job and actively seeking a new one. 3) Drank the kool-aid in the break room and loved the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone at this company is a Senior, President, Vice President, etc. There are too many people in management. Treating your employees to work in fear doesn't really work.

    Pros

    I've never worked for a company that cared so much about the well-being of their employees.

    Between the on-campus BootCamp, Yoga and Zumba classes (FREE!), Clickbooth also likes to spark a little healthy competition amongst the employees,
    offering "CB Snipers" (a week-long Nerf War against all willing participants) and "Food Friday" (a once a month, company sponsored Food Duel).

    With a Work Hard and Play Harder mentality, we put in long hours at the office and sometimes even at home,
    but we're rewarded with the countless opportunities for advancement and an environment filled with talented, motivating and fun individuals!

    Cons

    The Internet never sleeps and every day offers new challenges...but who wants a stale workplace?

    Pros

    I've worked here over 5 years and I still look forward to coming to work everyday. Extremely fun & relaxed environment! Management is so supportive and have a complete open door policy.

    So many amazing perks & benefits; great health care coverage, promote from within, flex hours, slide in the building, the best break room someone could possibly ask for with ample games (including my personal favorite - Skee-ball!), Nerf sniper games, amazing company parties.... the list goes on and on!

    Cons

    No ball pit at the end of the slide. ;)
