Good product, bad mid-sr level level management

I worked at GovDelivery full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The product is great and works well. They have a niche market.

Cons

mid-sr level management lacks management skills. I wasn't allowed to do what I was hired for and when I suggested new ideas, I was shot down and then let go for no reason. My manager didn't know how to manage people very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take some management seminars and communicate with your employees to try to help them before just pulling the plug.

    Pros

    Great service for city and county governments, federal agencies, helps citizens stay connected with city hall and know more about what's happening.

    Cons

    Excessive turnover is disconcerting to current employees in all depts. Sudden management decisions and changes are often made without explanation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid micromanagement. Give direction and then stand back and let people do their jobs.

    Pros

    Mission driven and innovative company where everyone is expected to work hard and make a contribution. Very focused on delivering value for clients. Pays good bonuses and regularly promotes from within. Work life balance is reasonable for a fast growing company.

    Cons

    This is a company where everyone expects colleagues to get their work done and make a contribution. It is not a good place for anyone looking to coast. Most roles require that people are online and getting work done off hours during the busy times of year or when a bunch of new clients come on at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support innovation while building processes of a larger company.
