I have been working at Impermium full-time

Pros

Very smart peers, startup agility, hard-working but family friendly, A-list investors, good location near CalTrain. Pretty good compensation plus significant stock options. Big vision for the company, to protect the social web from spam, profanity, abuse, etc.

Cons

Small team of 16 trying to do everything while keeping costs down, tough to focus on just 1-2 products with so many different possibilities, lots of time and effort to prove our new technology works for customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest seriously in marketing.

    I worked at Impermium full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The team is made up of a very bright group of people.
    - The company is solving a very challenging problem around defeating spam on online social, community and collaboration sites and services. Definitely not boring stuff.
    - There's a lot of enthusiasm for their products and services.

    Cons

    - It's still the early days of solving these spam problems, so some sites are not yet treating this as urgently as they should.
    - Risk with first time CEO, but he's consciencious and works hard, so it's not a bad chance to take.
    - Service still has to be made easier to integrate and trials need to take less time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on making the service easier and easier to integrate and use.

    I worked at Impermium full-time

    Pros

    Senior management cares a lot about making sure everyone is having fun. There are a lot of perks, including meals, snacks, drinks, video games, movie days, field trip activities, etc. Walkable from Caltrain. Brilliant leadership team. Flexible work schedule, great work-life balance. Overall, great vibe and company culture.

    Cons

    Everyone works in one big room. It can be good for collaboration, but is occasionally distracting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More unsolicited communication and feedback for employees.
