Cons

Some additional processes and procedures are now in place that weren't here in the beginning - but they make sense considering the growth of the business/technology

    Little start up with big corporate baggage

    Former Employee - R&D Department in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - R&D Department in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Cleversafe, Inc

    Pros

    - Very easy dress code
    - Occasional food benefits

    Cons

    - Despite being a start up, many employees and managers came from Motorola and the big corporate mind hive is very pervasive

    - Difficult to oppose management when the right decision isn't in line with their goals

    - Difficult to engage other departments in a collaborative way when your department head doesn't want to do it.

    - They weren't entirely honest about my contract to hire situation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shed your Motorola past and become a real start up. Let employees guide management in best practices, especially in the R&D department. Be honest with your candidates, offering CTH as a "probationary period" and then claiming you lost funding at the end of the contract period is lame.

    Pros

    Unique emerging fast growth technology company (B2B) in Chicago
    Product is so well-timed and a game changer with market and evolving customer storage demands
    Incredibly smart and passionate people
    Opportunity to learn every day, lots of long-tenured employees who have been promoted from within
    Lots of flexibilty

    Cons

    Short term- lots of hours, but the potential long-term payoff is expected to be huge so this con could be a pro in the end
