Pros

Team oriented collaborative culture is the secret to our success, along with fully engaged, energized and forward thinking supportive leadership; and great people. Plenty of autonomy to be creative and innovative in my job.

None unless you don't take well to a fast paced open environment where continued change is a certainty and opportunity is plentiful for innovative thinker/doers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

One of the most critical and challenging parts of management is deciding who makes the team and where you play them. Let's keep bringing in great people and using them to their fullest potential.

    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."
