    I worked at Fluid full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Terrific co-workers
    Great office and location
    Dog friendly

    Cons

    Plenty of money for senior management; raises are almost non-existent for everyone else
    Astonishingly bureaucratic for a "start up"
    Fuzzy future

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. You have outlived your usefulness and are now impeding success. If you can't make the company a success after 15 years of trying, get out of the way and let those who know what they're doing try.

    I worked at Fluid full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, telecommute friendly, friendly coworkers, talented creatives.

    Cons

    - Used to pride itself on culture, a culture that is all but gone now. Sells itself on a startup culture, but acts like an enterprise.
    - Lots of middle-management favoritism with groups/subsets within a single department; becoming a part of the "favorites" felt like trying to break the bind in a rugby scrum.
    - A 40 hour week was a pipe dream -- think 60-80 hr/wks end-to-end with comp time rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Don't float the faults of one department down the waterfall for the next department to deal with; fix the problem where it starts and equip your employees properly (ie, have a competent sales team who can sell all services equally).
    - Upper management should engage more with ALL employees, not just those in choice departments.
    - Don't blow smoke; taking outside investment with the claim that it will allow hiring "ahead of the curve" and reduce the need for people to work unpaid overtime hours, and then cutting people because of low revenue is just garbage...
    - Regain control of your company from the investment board.
