    I have been working at Eliza full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    One of very few companies where you can be proud of what its doing in terms of its product.
    Your work (indirectly) gets to help people live healthier lives and even saves lives.

    Cons

    Lost its entrepreneurial spirit
    Politics get in the way of getting things done
    Too many decision makers
    No growth opportunities (most people stay in the same positions for many, many years)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are not being heard (surveys with predetermined questions and responses is not an adequate substitute)
    Wrong decisions are frequently made

    Pros

    Yearly corporate holiday and summer parties were fun.

    Cons

    Unlimited vacation!...what this was was the elimination of a all employees' accruable vacation time benefit to get a large number off the books and make the numbers appear better for a sale. This was spun to the employees as "Unlimited Vacation". Very dishonest.

    People are OK. No one socializes after work hours. Everyone keeps their heads down since they're typically swamped with work

    Pros

    Challenging and dynamic environment with great coworkers. Room for growth and opportunity with rewards for good performance.

    Cons

    Improvements could be made regarding communication within the company. Teams tend to be in silos. Inequitable distribution of resources assigned to projects leads to high burnout rate.

    Pros

    A few years ago Employees had loved to take on the challenges and work to help make applications that would help make people healthier.

    Cons

    No team work or collaborative development. All goal development steps are unknown and kept from employees. Employees fear discussion for threat of being branded "not a team player".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the results of the employee survey, encourage team discussions and take power away from Engineering Dictatorship.

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

    Pros

    Eliza has some of the most intelligent, dedicated people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    There is a lot of inter-departmental hostility and people that are "favorites" who, quite often, have more power than they can handle. Also, there is a huge gap in how people are compensated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with the employees to figure out who should be promoted and demoted. The ability to brown nose doesn't equate to the ability to do a good job.

    I worked at Eliza full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The employees are great and helpfull, The environment is fun, including free beer, ping pong and good benefits.

    Cons

    If you are contract to hire be ready to be unemployeed at the end of your contract, even when they tell that you will be hired. If you are hired directly by Eliza then you will get all the benefits and wont be terminated. This company has busy seasons that require employee rotation. They usually have 6 months contracts and will hire only if a former employee quits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest with your employees.

    Pros

    The people all care about the product and want to deliver the best product to their customers

    Cons

    Still has a startup mentality after a 8-9 years and needs to work on its processes (i.e. employee onboarding, etc) - to make the experience consistent - but its also part of the charm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay sharp!

    Pros

    Support from team and leadership team
    Constantly pushing yourself out of your comfort zone
    Learn new things all the time

    Cons

    Management team is lacking some basic leadership skills and communication about what is going on continues to be an issue. Discipline is a huge problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rely on your managers to do what's right and it's ok if mistakes are made once in awhile. Senior management doesn't have to touch, review, and be involved with every little detail.
