Pros

You will be hard pressed to find a company with more smart, hard-working, engaged employees. For those interested, there is lots of opportunity to learn and grow. The company truly values its employees and it is evident: great benefits, the flexibility to balance work & life, the trust to work independently, support to receive the training needed to be more effective in your job, lots of little extras like happy hours, free soda/snacks, family friendly events, and more!

Cons

You will be expected to work hard with a focus on results. This environment is not a fit for everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing so the company continues to grow!

    Pros

    CEO is great and provides energy to what otherwise is a very negative place to work. Great breakfast club. company happy hours.

    Cons

    poor work/life balance, high stress with low tolerance for errors or suggestions that might disagree with management, Huge turnover which makes it questionable whether it really is the problem of hiring bad employees or rather a result of a messed up management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the lead of your CEO. Take some management classes and don't be so quick to pull the trigger on employees who might offer suggestions that disagree with you.

    Pros

    * GovDelivery has endless opportunities, but you have to be a self starter; nobody will hold your hand and help you succeed. You're generally told to get something done but it's up to you to figure out the details on how to do it. Some may find that a con, but I think it's a huge pro.
    * IT/Technology is viewed upon as a strategic weapon, not a cost center like some other companies I've worked at, and it's great to hear that message from the CEO.
    * Plenty of room for career growth at most positions if you're willing to step up and take it
    * The Chief Operating Officer is a great leader and he brings an energy that makes the company fun to work at. He also brings great ideas to help improve innovation.
    * Generous bonus program
    * For only $30 every three months, you can join the "Breakfast Club," where the company will cater in breakfast on Friday morning. It could be a breakfast sandwich, quiche, muffins, French toast, etc, but it's a great perk.
    * Company frequently has happy hour in the office and brings in cake, cookies, appetizers, etc for everyone to celebrate and unwind.

    Cons

    * The company is growing so fast that there's always a LOT of work to do, and while nobody tells you that it's required to put in a lot of extra hours, you'll fail if you don't. This can lead to reduced work/life balance.
    * Along similar lines, the amount of vacation time you get is small compared to most places
    * If you're looking for a laid back, stress-free place, this is not the company for you (personally I'd find that boring...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, we're clearly on the right track.
