Approves of CEO

I have been working at Hightail full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

New CEO is a star. We've already seen and heard from him more in 5 weeks than from the prior CEO in five years. Finally getting some leadership and not just lectures. We have some great managers, but used to spend a lot of time on internal matters Great culture in office in terms of activities, etc. Really, really fun place to work

Cons

Better pay (hey, who doesn't want more money). Especially among people that have been here a while. Newbies get bigger packages. Could work better cross functionally. But sense that changes on that front are coming soon.

Advice to Management

Keep everyone in the loop about what is going on. Let's keep growing this great company and have more people find the hidden gem of silicon valley.

    I worked at Hightail full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good staff, interesting business plan, flexible work time.

    Cons

    Sales seems to be the decision maker as to what the company needs for IT, and no matter what the IT team recommends, if it is shiny and new, sales wants it, regardless of the potential impact to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Long range planning and sticking with a plan, instead of throwing a lot of ideas at a wall to see what sticks.

    Pros

    We just hired Brad Garlinghouse as our new CEO and the buzz couldn't be any better! Brad is focused and committed to leading YSI to new levels! Super excited!

    Cons

    We are coming out of a time of uncertainty. It's a "wait and see" situation now.

    Advice to Management

    Constant communication! Keep it coming!
