Pros

Cafepress is constantly moving forward; with products, ideas, & technologies. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed.

Cons

Communication is absolutely atrocious! For example, I have to hear through the grape vine that someone I depend on is leaving the company. No one tells anyone else what they are doing or asks how it can be done better. They just go off and do it, usually making the same mistakes again and again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get people to work together and communicate from the top down and you will have a much happier work force.

    Pros

    Good technology to work with and grow skills in new areas. Many great people and innovators in the company early on that were amazing to work with.

    Cons

    Technical people promoted to justify higher salaries, but given no training on how to manage or coach people. Bad personality mixes in teams led to many confrontational situations that hindered productivity. The CEO comes from the food industry, and views everyone like disposable factory workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people in the trenches who are doing the work, to experts that are already employed and vested in the company future. Too many projects are done in a vacuum, without
