Pros

Great compensation package. Work hard Play hard culture.

Cons

For a technology company the internal use of progressive time-saving tools is strangely absent.

Advice to Management

An "Open Door Policy" does not make you easy to talk to or eager to listen. Genius was full of more open doors with closed minds inside than the largest Fortune 100.
Trust goes both ways and most people deserve to be heard. Genius.com and SFDC are not the only tools available to run an entire company. Investment in a good BI tool would go a long way and have a huge return to avoid wasting time on spreadsheets etc.

    Pros

    Leadership (D Thompson) was terrific, culture was fun, energetic, passionate, and we all knew how to work hard and play hard. Great atmosphere.

    Cons

    I think the only cons were some disconnect and disrespect amongst members of the leadership team from time to time, which - because the team was so close generally, did have an impact across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Should just have anticipated and out-executed competitors better.

    Pros

    A dynamic company with innovative software products. The people were great. Everyone I worked with was professional and highly motivated. It was a great place to be if you enjoy a startup environment. It was an excellent place to build up my portfolio.

    Cons

    The only con for me was the company was acquired, so my role as a contractor ended.
