    Pros

    The people. I love working with everyone at the company - the people are genuinely nice while also being driven to do their best work. The team is very open to suggestions - engineers can contribute a lot to the design process, if they want.

    Cons

    Sketchy elevators. Honestly, I find this amusing and semi-adventurous; it's never a safety concern, they just take you to the wrong floor sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the impending need for profitability restrict our vision.

    Current Employee - Sales Development in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    - Our senior management leads with total class and are unmatched transparency
    - Phenomenal team co-workers
    - I am in control of my own success
    - We are small enough that individual contributors can still see their accomplishments impact the success of the company

    Cons

    Benefits and HR processes are a work in progress. Few employees are realizing full value of benefits due to complexity and transitions between providers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more notably into individual employee skills training & development

    Pros

    --Amazing coworkers
    --Transparency from all sides of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain transparent. Keep the focus on the internal employee while we scale bigger. Provide internal growth opportunities.

    Current Employee - Product & Engineering in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    Awesome, fast-paced company focused on its product and its people
     - Full Transparency & No Terrible People are core values—and they really mean it!
     - The CEO and management team make time for anyone
     - Amazing Product & Engineering team
     - Team & Company Culture are as important to management as sales numbers and product features
     - Free snacks all the time, lunch/breakfast programs exist if not perfect, health benefits, device stipends, plus others

    Cons

    Although they've been around a couple years, they're still very much a start-up
     - Work/Life Balance needs constant vigilance
     - Being at the office can be stressful because the office is a horrible crowded mess with terrible climate control
     - If it's freezing outside, the air conditioning is usually blasting in the office, if it's sweltering outside, the heat is usually on
     - Because of space and environment limitations, it can be almost impossible to get work done without being at the office for 15 hours straight some days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being transparent and awesome! And buy the building already!!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    Everyone works so hard, it's inspiring. They care about what they do, and about doing it right. Because we are in a competitive space and there are old incumbents, we are encouraged to approach problems in new and innovative ways. It's made our product amazing, and our team fearless. Our annual offsite is always amazing. Team building and office fun is also taken seriously.

    Cons

    The CEO cares a lot about face time at the office, which is sometimes annoying, but not surprising (given that he is at the office constantly). The managers that most report directly to, don't seem to care as much. Definitely not a WFH culture, though. There is an expectation that you work really hard, which can get exhausting if not managed correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need some help on the food order and office organization / tidiness, conference room scheduling, etc. I think that's largely due to growing pains, but would be good to address sooner rather than later.

    Pros

    Working on products that are changing the way people interact at events, "remarkable" people, leaders who really care about team and culture. Role flexibility and lots of learning opportunities. Leaders presume trust from day one and empower employees to make immediate impact.

    Cons

    Office is spread across multiple floors in an old building. Culture becoming more difficult to scale as company is experiencing rapid growth.
