Great Company, Somewhat Lacking in Upward Mobility

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

Pros

The work environment is fantastic and the culture in general is very good. People are friendly, and almost everyone seems excited about working at Jive. Management is extremely open and approachable, and go out of their way to get to know everyone. Offices are great. Product is really good and the company has a great reputation. There are a lot of really smart people here.

Cons

While the company is growing quickly, there just doesn't seem to be that much upward mobility (observed this, not that relevant to me though). Qualified people often leave before being promoted. The onboarding process is fairly inefficient

    Pros

    flexible work environment, forward thinking benefits plan and package, positive culture. People who are genuinely excited and happy to be at work. Sometimes what is displayed outwardly is not always the case when you get to the other side-but at Jive, what you see is what you get-pretty happy employees, trying to do the right thing for customers and their company.

    Cons

    might need just a tad bit more structure, continuing to grow and mature-and with that comes new challenges-things that might have worked before might need to be done differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on customers, refining the marketing approach, add a bit more process. Continue to deliver but also stop and make those changes that are necessary to reach the longer term goals set, it might mean stopping some things and starting others.
