I have been working at Hightail full-time for more than a year

Pros

Medium size company, great location, free lunches, good swag.

Cons

Sr. management has no idea what they are doing and has become a buddy network. No longer a fun place to work that has a good solid direction and no upward promotion unless you are already a senior level.

    Might be a great place to work in a year or two, but not right now.

    I worked at Hightail full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Current CEO Brad Garlinghouse has plans to move this company into interesting territory.

    Cons

    Environment is still very political. Mid-level management only looks out for themselves, which has resulted in short-sighted decisions being made that effect the quality of the product. Very little room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more effort into thinking about the company and less effort into thinking about your careers.
