Current Employee - Product Manager in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Ifbyphone full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Everyone who works at this company is smart. You're not going to find a single person here that doesn't fit that mold. It's tough to understate how much of a benefit this is- the free drinks are nice, the pinball is fun as are some of the company sponsored events/parties, but seriously you can take all that away for the benefit of working around smart people. Not a day goes by that I'm not able to learn something or find someone different to talk to.

Cons

This is not an easy place to work. Let me explain- If you're looking to punch the clock and never have your work bleed beyond 5pm this is not the place for you. For me that's a good thing- I tend to be passionate about what I do with my time at work and beyond. For others, that's going to be a negative.

    Pros

    Casual work environment. Success driven individuals. A company big enough to provide perks (good benefits, competitive salary, open vacation policy) but small enough to feel like a community. A management staff that doesn't micro-manage (can be seen as detrimental to people who are lazy). Overall Ifbyphone is an incredible place to work for anyone that is looking for an opportunity to succeed.

    Cons

    People that are looking for very buttoned up, corporate structure should steer clear. Ifbyphone has done a great job hiring like minded individuals and fostering a work environment that lends itself to success. There have been some, not many, but some that have come through Ifbyphone looking to be told what to do and have their hand held through everything. This is not what we look for, we are looking for people that like creative freedom, that like to know that day to day their opinion helps mold an already excellent product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please rotate the drinks from the back to the front when re-filling the company paid for drinks.

    In all seriousness the company has their act together. There have been people that claim otherwise but it is pretty clear when you are here that this is a company that is going places. They have maintained a spot on the INC list the last two years as one of the fastest growing companies in the country. Not an easy thing to do.
