I have been working at DataSift full-time for more than a year

Pros

This company is definitely a rocket ship, growing like crazy and will be public company one day. Love working with incredibly smart, fun hard working people on really interesting work.

Cons

The DataSift culture is pretty intense and fast moving. If you are looking for a slow day job, this probably isn't your place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More free lunches!

Thanks for the feedback and advice for more free lunches. I will pass it along to Senior Management and gauge their "appetite."

    I have been working at DataSift full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work challenges, fun & games, (very) talented people. Unique culture that makes you feel part of something bigger than just 'work'.

    Cons

    Perks could be better. Company has start-up mentality, but is probably a bit beyond that stage why you would expect a set of core benefits that currently aren't there, i.e. pension contribution, health insurance (UK only) etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Safeguard the DataSift culture - we are in for a ride, but core values are important and must be protected.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. DataSift is in the process of improving the UK benefits scheme. So be on the lookout for information on pension contributions, PMI and Season Ticket Loan programs ... More
