Pros

Great people- on all teams. Very energetic, enthusiastic. You've got to be a hard worker, but as long as you put in the effort, you'll be embraced and supported by the entire org.

Product- Amazing, especially if you're in sales. Huge wow factor from DMs and users alike. Very robust, always works, and works well. Incredibly easy to get behind!

Market- Hot. It's still a heavy prospecting business, so you'll have to do the legwork- but once you get a small team using the platform, it spreads virally. I've been through several startups, and its so nice to know there is actually demand in the market place for the product. This is how you want to be selling.

Company- Leadership is strong. Very driven, high energy, and thorough. Proven track records. Office location is amazing, can't beat the views. Great financial stability- just took in series A last year. Sky is the limit, and the equity packages are strong. Solid long term possibilities.

Cons

While its mostly a pro, ClearSlide is a paperless office- no printer in sight! Can't rely on the office to print concert tix, directions, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Full speed ahead- keep at it on product+ sales, and remember to throw in some fun off-site events here and there.

    Pros

    Ideas are listened to and more than often actioned. I've worked in lots of environments where technology suggestions have been ignored, often due to internal politics and infighting. Those attributes seem to be non-existent, which is in part due to the emphasis of screening candidates for cultural fit and keeping the Corporate Zombies out of here. In that respect it's a techie's heaven.
    The team works together to make Clearslide successful, which is no doubt why the company is experiencing strong revenue growth.
    High energy team, work hard play hard attitude. No bullying and finger pointing.
    Profile is increasing at a strong rate, I'll be having a beer talking to some random, they say "Hey I know Clearslide. I .....". First startup in 5 years that I've worked at where that frequently happens.
    We don't do meetings.

    Cons

    Emphasis on healthy snacks. Where is my junk food?
    Ears pop in the elevator getting up here.
    Not allowed to bring bikes into the office, have to lock it up in the garage.

    Pros

    Start up environment. Small team.

    Cons

    The technology stack on which the product was developed is questionable. The entire product is based on java servlets and and some front-end java-script with ajax etc. Some one who has worked on latest technologies will have serious concerns working with them as they are highly reluctant to change their code base.

    The company has more technical recruiters(5+) than engineering team (1). And the interview process is mediocre. Technical interview questions were rather easy and not challenging. and they claim to hire only rock stars to be part of the engineering team which is funny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more confident on decision making. Improve the technical interviews and adopt to latest technologies.
