Relatively drama-free. Friendly people. Lots of company social events and catered lunches on Friday.

Some accumulated tech debt can make developing new products slower than it could be.

Reduce tech debt.

    Pros

    GoGrid likes to innovate and create their own solutions with various opensource technologies. This gives you a wide breadth of options and the ability to see what the community is doing instead of being pinned down to vendor contracts or software license agreements (as a developer)

    Cons

    Sometimes getting a product or project to market comes at the sacrifice of a more complete solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe show how a product's spend (cost to develop) returns the company by sales and how much money we're making on that. Celebrate those successes and then continue to iterate on that feature (which is making money).

    CEO breeds dysfunction.

    Pros

    Free lunch on Friday's, frequent company fun activities. Good benefits, $10 Crunch fitness, good medical plans, 401K match. Location is good.

    Cons

    The CEO gets an idea for a product and wants it released to our customers before it is barely a V1 beta, thus our great new products that have potential never get fully bug tested or vetted. Then you have your best customers using those products and when they fail, you spend your time trying to save the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the developers develop a fully functioning product before releasing it, don't cut corners. Someone stand up to the CEO.
