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

    Pros

    People (engineers at least) aren't wasting time trying to blame one another for problems. They're all just focused on resolving issues they encounter, not fighting to see who's right or wrong as I've seen in my previous jobs. They're all very willing and open to help you with any issue you may have. It is so far the best group of people I've gotten to work with, and I do feel like I'm helping to build something good for the world.

    Cons

    The management has been bad for the most of 2014, but it did undergo drastic changes near the end and so far it's going well. They do seem to show appreciations for the people who work there, doing arbitrary team-building events and hosting fireside chats with the board members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So far it seems they're trying to amend their problems, so will have to give some time to see.

    Not a bad place to work and they're probably going places.

    I have been working at Edmodo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I loved my time at Edmodo for the most part. While I did get frustrated working with some teams, I felt that the engineering team was very forward thinking and has some very talented people. A huge turnaround from where things stood at the beginning of 2013.

    Most of the other companies in the space seem to be so far behind that I think Edmodo will succeed merely because the bar has been set pretty low.

    Cons

    I question the management sometimes. A ton of people became demotivated over 2014 and there was a huge amount of turnover. Most of it was voluntary but there were some layoffs/firings mixed in too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was always a lot of uncertainty in the air the further you got from being in on management meetings. What is the company doing? Why are we doing this? Why aren't we doing this other thing? Answers were given but only when they were asked for and not necessarily in an inspiring way.
