Pros

1.) Company is growing rapidly and as a result many opportunites to advance your career exist. 2.) Experienced management team - CEO is a 2x entrepreneur focused on building a great company. 3.) Right place, right time - founders bootstrapped during a tough economy but made it through, pivoted and eventually achieved a product-business fit. 4.) Business model is on steep trajectory with broad adoption across industries. 5.) True meritocracy - if you come in and work hard every day good things happen. 6.) Fun culture - I came from a large company and the culture here is top notch. 7.) Amazing board and advisors - experienced, successful, and prudent. 8.) Customers rave about the service - I've never seen anything quite like it.

Cons

1.) The company is "growing up" very rapidly, so certain processes are changing on the fly while others are still being developed. 2.) Extremely selective for new candidates. Not necessarily a con but focused on acquiring only the top echelon of talent. 3.) No 401(k) match just yet. 4.) No defined equity purchase plan just yet. 5.) No business reimbursement of phone or corporate credit card.

Advice to Management

Excited to see where we will be in the next 3 - 5 years. Keep the level of accountability and bar for success as high as possible.

    Pros

    Listing is in no particular order: (1) Open work environment with a lot of transparency (2) GREAT product with a strong engineering and customer success team (3) Amazing customers on board and sales team continues to build on that (4) Product meets the need that customers, prospects, and others are looking for

    Cons

    My only downside is the drive to Menlo Park from San Francisco but I do the drive (with a smile) because of the opportunity at GuideSpark.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing!

    Pros

    There are companies people can't stand to work at, there are companies people tolerate for a paycheck, and then (rarely) there are companies that have a positive energy that you just feel when you walk through the front door. GuideSpark falls in that last bucket. It's a magical combination - great product, intelligent leadership and a unique culture that just buzzes. It's the type of place that all startups aspire to when they say "let's build a great culture" - and then force their employees to work long hours and over weekends and holidays for below market wages...The reality is it's easy to say let's build a great culture, and difficult to pull off. Respect is given to each individual's personal and family life, while still maintaining aggressive growth goals.

    Cons

    Tough commute from San Francisco - but worth it. No ping pong table. No chocolate fountain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Invest in an SF office and you'll open up a new talent pool of candidates.
