I have been working at Globys full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There's a very strong focus from all levels to hire great people. The atmosphere is casual and friendly - everyone seems to get along and work well together. There's good opportunity for career progression and everyone is working towards the same goals. Well-stocked cafe/lunch room with video games!

Cons

We can be very picky during the hiring process, and not a lot of entry-level opportunities lately. Still working out some of the kinks in our processes...

    Pros

    The people are nice, and there are some genuinely smart people here. The company is trying to move forward. There is an acknowledgement that the old reliance on death marches to keep up with unrealistic customer expectations only leads to burnout and churn; so there is a new attempt to keep a work-life balance. There is interesting work to do, and there seems to be plenty of opportunities. The company knows that they have significant technical debt to overcome, and that has made them receptive to change. We have recently moved to a new location at 705 Union Square (near 5th and Jackson) so the public transportation and lunch options are much better than at the old spot on the ship canal.

    Cons

    The legacy code is a mess. Plenty of the core product still lives in the land of VB6 and old-school ASP. Even the C# code can have its share of problems, depending on the author. I haven't looked at the Java codebase yet. The build system is a mess, with only a few automated builds.

    Advice to Management

    1. Your eyes are bigger than your stomach. Focus on what you can do. 2. Invest in your employees and infrastructure. If you want big things they can't come from nowhere.

    Pros

    Company has a great culture: eg. employees are helpful to new hires, minimal politics, collaborative environment and small company feel. Interesting technologies and products in the high-growth mobile analytics space.

    Cons

    Location not very convenient for public transport and office is currently a bit small. Carrier business has relatively long sales cycle and large deployment effort.

    Advice to Management

    Move to a more easy-to-access location. Remember to retain/preserve culture while growing business, and devote a bit more time on outreach programs to increase awareness of company.
