I have been working at Gogo full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

As a company, we get to do things no company has ever done before. Its pretty cool to be a part of. There are plenty of opportunities to grow a career if you are willing to work hard and make your own way.

Cons

Work/life balance can get tricky as the workload can be very heavy.
The office is in Itasca (moving downtown in 2015!!)
The company is growing very quickly (pro) and sometimes it takes a bit for the infrastructure to catch up (con)
Middle management needs to improve their skills

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest heavily in current employees to develop them
Work to make sure the company vision is clear

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    I worked at Gogo as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Gogo pays well, is wonderfully flexible, and the things you get to work on are deeply interesting. They are thisclose to being a top-five place to work in their class; it would take just a small cultural and philosophical shift. If that shift comes, flood the place with resumes.

    Cons

    The company is bogged down badly by an excess of stakeholders, a lack of role clarity, and odd internal priorities. The value is in process over product, and the processes themselves are broken. I root for Gogo to get it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline product approval processes by aggressively clarifying roles and approval authority at all levels.
