Pros

Engineering has new leadership which is hopeful (if they last). Sales team is fun, young, talented with a strong leader. Product is sexier than the competition. Good location. High performers rewarded. Weaker links are weeded out. Free lunch on Fridays.

Cons

Lack of clear strategy and vision - can't trust what leadership says. Product improving, but nowhere near Enterprise ready. Technology infrastructure is poor leading to product failures for major customers, many who are unhappy. Internal systems a disaster. CEO talks a big game but rarely backs it up. A lot of talking behind people's backs instead of giving direct feedback.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When things go wrong, look at yourself rather than blaming others. Be honest with yourselves, your employees and your customers, and the investors. Invest in fixing what is broken and build a good foundation for growth. Figure out what makes Fuze truly different or you won't last.

    Working at FuzeBox has been the best job in my life!

    Pros

    The people at FuzeBox are awesome to work with. It is a fun environment. The dress is casual which I love. Everyone seems to like everyone. You don't hear any gossip. The potential for growth is out of this world. That alone is the reason I am working here. It has the potential to grow into a super power company. And most importantly the CEO cares about the employees.

    Cons

    FuzeBox is growing fast and going through typical growing pains. It means sometimes you have to work harder until the company can catch up with hiring. But we are hiring like crazy! And that is also very exciting!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more all hands meetings to keep everyone up to date on the great things that are coming and happening. Department heads, remember that communication with other departments on changes you are making can affect others. Think about it before you do it and who it will affect.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, nice location convenient for commuting, most of the people are nice, catered lunches on Fridays, free coffee & espresso.

    Cons

    * Constant crisis mode
    * Having to work with engineers in Bulgaria.
    * Extremely buggy apps that were nearly impossible to maintain.
    * Sales & marketing driven, rather than engineering driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw away all of the code & rewrite it from scratch, not using engineers in Bulgaria.
