I have been working at Indeed as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

* Everyone in the company seems invested in furthering your abilities, and helping you become better at what you do.
* Meetings are short and to the point.
* They embrace new and cutting-edge technologies.
* You work with some of the most brilliant people you have met.
* Collaborative work environment where management seems to care about each individual greatly.
* Free lunch. Weekly/monthly outings. Fun people to work with.

Cons

* Since they are smaller, opportunities to "work your way up" can be limited, but this is also a plus for them.

    I have been working at Indeed full-time

    Pros

    - Great energy
    - Lots of young people
    - Great potential for getting paid well and rather quickly
    - Awesome product
    - Do a good job of promoting
    - Cool offices
    - Lots of free food!
    - Happy Hours

    Cons

    - HIGH turnover
    - Growing quickly...but at what cost?
    - Great place to work if you're not in sales
    - Unattainable quotas (consistently)
    - Performance plans aren't performance plans....they're your notice of termination
    - Managers are like frat buddies
    - Minimal sales training
    - Stupid emphasis on "activity" (a person will do just enough just to get you off of their backs)
    - Micromanagement (be prepared to hear it from your manager if you took a 30 minute lunch break)
    - Not much job security

    I worked at Indeed as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Start working quickly - most interns deployed code in the first week
    Intern projects have front-facing impact and real-world business value
    Chill, laid-back atmosphere (not just because of Herman Miller chairs!)
    Super nice, super smart coworkers and managers
    VPs and Rony (co-founder) very accessible and helpful

    Cons

    Interns are self-employed independent contractors (may change for summer 2013)
