    Pros

    - Flexible working schedule
    - Location freedom, telecommuting
    - Fun people, energy in the workspace
    - Lots of events, training opportunities
    - No drama during software releases: small steady steps.

    Cons

    - Not a technology innovator. Using latest technology for web apps and web services though.
    - Sometimes projects become mundane
    - Some things take time to get done due to lack of organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So far the management decisions have paid off. Adconion has grown very big in very little time. At the same time this fast growth has caused stress points across departments because there is not enough time to reorganize and put processes in place. My advice is to start to look into some 6-sigma strategies to get the company more process-oriented.

    I worked at Adconion

    Pros

    - Start up environment
    - Free food on Wednesdays
    - Nice office space, but new office space location is horrible

    Cons

    - NO Promotions
    - NO Salary increases
    - The company has no real HR leader
    - No development
    - No real leadership (very confusing)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to evaluate its leadership and management. The leaders spend more time playing and traveling together (as friends) than in managing the company and hiring strong people.
