Pros

Small, tight team doing good work. No bureaucracy or politics - freedom to do your job the way you see fit. All the tools required. Great location and work environment.

Cons

Many of the same downsides/upsides as other SoMA locations: big bullpen open work environment (love it or hate it). Expensive parking if you have to drive, partially subsidized by the company.

    Pros

    - Pay is above average
    - Great location in SOMA
    - The technology is interesting and has room to grow
    - Some great talent in engineering, sales and marketing
    - Despite the company's age, still a start-up feel

    Cons

    - There is absolutely no semblance of executive leadership - or any leadership at all, for that matter.
    - Despite being an office of less than 50 people at any given day, in a relatively small space, you will feel disconnected, especially from the e-staff.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your CEO and breathe new life into this company; that guy has no vision and during my tenure there showed no indication that he cared about his employees or the success of the company. He may have an impressive background, but it's not rooted in the security industry, period. The wrong people from the wrong industries were constantly hired into positions of leadership instead of looking inward at others that could have excelled in those roles, whom ended up just leaving an obviously-sinking ship.

    Turnover was constant; the most skilled developers were replaced by outsourced work and average-at-best talent. 3VR had the opportunity to be the, "Google of searchable face rec technology" but instead threw away millions of funding due to a lack of understanding of the security space and its competitors, and then over-extending its resources by fragmenting its software focus and alienating their customer base. It's a shame that the inner circle of board members never stepped up to the plate and gave this company the leadership that it deserved years ago.
