    Pros

    New field so growth in the space is unlimited
    Mostly nice co-workers
    They're trying to have some fun employee events

    Cons

    My manager does not understand my job yet tries to micromanage me and does not or will not listen
    Was promised something when I started and now it's never been mentioned again (like I'm going to forget)
    Poor direction from my immediate manager
    One really bad co-worker
    Not a lot of support from other departments (this starts at the top with any company)
    Trying to do too much with the product perhaps. Smells a little desperate

    Advice to Management

    Have cross manager meetings so that people can express frustration with their own manager with impunity, in case that person is incapable of listening or having a normal conversation. When you promise an employee something, either deliver it or have a conversation about it. Get all departments working together. Try to understand (really understand and care) what the interdependencies are between groups/job functions. If you bring someone on board, make sure that they have a clear understanding of what their job role is.

    I know the cons I state are specific to me, but it's a small company and this kind of thing should only happen at a larger company (if it happens at all) One of the reasons to work at a small company is to not deal with this kind of BS. You infuse this kind of stuff and all of the cool reasons to work at a small company go away.


  2. It was a eye-opening experience which I enjoyed a lot

    - great individual contributors
    - good facilities - kitchen, sofas and game room

    Cons

    - great individual contributors but lacked cohesion
    - a lot of bureaucracy (which seems to be going away now)
    - over confidence in the product
