Pros

The energy here at FTB is very strong and very positive. The company is very selective in hiring and it's paying off. Very flat organization -- very few layers of management. Anybody who is willing to take the initiative can own a project and run with it. People are smart and energetic and really enjoy hanging out together. Lots of great food is always on hand and exercise classes every day.

Cons

It's an intense culture, so it's not for everybody. People work hard, get in early and stay late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pats on the back -- do more of that.

    Pros

    - Great people: FindTheBest (FTB) aims to hire "smart athletes" (i.e. people who are intelligent and competitive) - this results in everyone at the company doing their part to succeed.
    - Great leadership: Kevin O'Conner has been through this process before and brings invaluable insight to a quickly growing company.
    - Interesting problems: The technical problems that arise at FTB are intellectually stimulating and I've had plenty of freedom to pursue the paths which I found most interesting.

    Cons

    - Long hours: It's a startup, there is more work than there are people to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful to maintain our company culture while we scale.

    Pros

    Kevin O'Connor did a great job setting up the framework for a good idea to develop into a business. A lot of autonomy and transparency

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on being "competitive"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time with your employees and motivate them by providing learning/growing opportunities. Give them resources and training tools to develop personally and professionally. Aside from KO, management lacks vision and direction.
