    Pros

    The team is full of people who have been with the company for over five (or even ten) years. It's no accident that so many people have stayed so much longer than the industry average; working here is challenging and rewarding.

    There's a large emphasis on mentorship and creating opportunities for employees to learn and grow into more responsibility. People care deeply about making things (software, culture, management) work well. Most people feel like they have a stake in the company's success.

    The perks are nice, too.

    Cons

    The company has been around longer than most companies its size and some of what worked a few years ago doesn't work as well anymore.

    Management increasingly emphasizes running a better organization, including a greater investment in HR, training, and infrastructure, but these improvements have not reached all parts of the organization equally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on building a great organization. Stay diligent about creating opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    I joined because of the incredible people I met during the interview and the medical benefits (covers 100% of premiums in a phenomenal plan).

    I stay because of the active meritocracy (people are encouraged and rewarded for finding opportunities to improve and make an impact) and the people are the smartest I've ever worked with.

    The product space is interesting and makes a real impact on people's lives - several examples where product has been used to locate an abducted child, find elderly family member with alzheimer's who wandered off.

    Cons

    Location Labs is kept behind the brand of the carriers so it's hard to get public recognition for what we do

    Not a lot of structure around performance reviews, requires personal drive to make growth happen (though I hear this is being worked on) which isn't for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the fast, hungry spirit as we continue to grow
    Reinforce your open door policy (not enough people take advantage of it)
    Keep making improvements in HR (we needed it) and keep cutting folks sooner who aren't the right fit with values and caliber of the overall team
