Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

For a company that has been around for 4+ years, it amazes me at how extremely non political this place is. Very collaborative open environment, employee development is encouraged, you are definitely given the opportunity to grow.
Smart talented people, some that really believe in the business and the power of impact/change.
Engineering culture is geared to solve problems the right way, emphasis is on quality.

Cons

Not sure of the business vision of the company, management needs to work on it more. This is not a typical 'explosive' valley startup anymore...if you are looking to work at a startup that gets featured in techcrunch all the time..this isnt it.

    Pros

    Great, great, great colleagues: very smart, dedicated, friendly, and fun
    When the company makes mistakes, it recognizes them and works to fix them
    Company is deeply loyal to the employees
    Excellent office location in SOMA, San Francisco

    Cons

    Not a "hyper-growth" company (ala Facebook, Square, Dropbox); instead, more measured (but steady) growth
    What we do is *hard*: there are tough challenges to work through, both technical and business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating; spend a lot of time with employees at all levels. Use MBWA: "management by walking around"

    I worked at Boku

    Pros

    Free snacks
    Fun, Relaxing, Do Whatever
    Big Monitors
    Beer and wine clubs

    Cons

    Executive management team is very poor
    Missing a good product/service strategy
    Mission is to grow revenue and sell company so the executives make lots of money
    Not much of a culture to speak of
    Careless about the customer
    Just work, don't even mention about career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executive management team needs to care about the company and its employees for a change. They should actually come in and stay for a full-day in the office. If they are bored, they should open their office door and talk to the employees to learn what is happening. That would be a good start.
