Pros

It's awesome to work on a product that I use daily. The people are great too, willing to help and nice.
Management is very trusting. Employees know where the company is and where it is going. The work environment is pretty relaxed- I play ping pong pretty much every day in the office.

Cons

The office is split into two floors which can be annoying sometimes.

    Pros

    It is a young company, and therefore the energy around the office is certainly positive.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Underpaid, no training, horrible middle management, broken promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding so many additional levels of management and focus on keeping the people that you do have happy. Or you're about to start losing many more.

    Cool company but poor middle management and little room for growth

    Pros

    Great coworkers and really cool products that help people. Company used to encourage collaboration and taking ownership of projects which sparked leadership and the excitement to learn.

    Cons

    With new management many of the company's pros are no longer considered acceptable. New ideas, suggestions, and taking leadership are now either discouraged or ignored. Those who express strong leadership are often treated with disrespect and/or micromanaged. In addition, expressing ambition to grow with the company is now seen as overly ambitious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to seek out and discuss potential career paths within the company. Assist them in working toward new roles with more responsibility if they express interest in growing. Allow and encourage employees to voice suggestions and opinions so teams can collaborate on projects and work processes. Provide direction when working on projects but avoid micromanaging employees who are consistently dependable.
