I have been working at NEOGOV full-time for less than a year

Pros

Full Disclosure: I currently work at NEOGOV (nearly 8 months) and am a happy employee

NEOGOV is a nice sized company that is neither too big or too small. You end up knowing everyone in the office and company (~150 people). The workforce at NEOGOV has a healthy mixture of young people who are just launching their careers to mid-career managers to highly experienced professionals. I'd have to say it's a good place for anyone in their careers. The company is profitable so job security isn't a problem.

As for the products being designed and developed, they're very exciting and the market NEOGOV is going after is pretty competitive so there's a clear sense of urgency to get ahead of competitors. Most everyone at NG wants to work hard, put in the hours to level up the products and win in the market.

There are three areas at NG; R&D, Sales and Customer Success. The R&D is comprised of developers and designers who work on the products—they love their work. The Sales team obviously sells the products, primarily working through lead generation (cold calls) and then follow up demos. It's pretty effective and the slaes people are a fun bunch. The Customer Success group are hard workers who support the customers and work on implementations. It may seem a thankless job but everyone knows how important this group is.

Cons

The biggest con is that there are so many cool things NG can be making that the focus can be spread thin. It's a con but it's not being ignored and many manager and employees are working on getting more focus in the product development. I'm very hopeful that this issue will get better and better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Glassdoor is asking me to give "advice" to "upper-management" but the hierarchy is pretty flat at NEOGOV, the CEO walks around and talks with everyone and knows basically everyone. So it doesn't feel like there's even an "upper-managment" that is far-and-away removed. There's literally only two people who have offices :-)

    I worked at NEOGOV as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The pros of my time here was the free snacks and people. The office is bright and open. El Segundo is OK.

    Cons

    This place was a revolving door of interns and other employees. There's so much turnover there. Everyone from new coders, staff, and sales come in and leave after a few months. Interns come through and for a few weeks and then leave.

    Company leaders and recruiter posted the fake 5 star reviews. Reviews in 2011 are more accurate (starting with “Lots of promises, no action.”)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop writing fake reviews.

    Pros

    You'll be faced with challenges, no matter what you do. Everyone is great to work with and there's some pretty good at work perks. We also get to play with new technology and sometimes get a chance to do some abstract, creative thinking. NEOGOV is also very flexible with your schedule. If you have an appointment, just ask, and you'll receive. One more thing, a lot of random happenings in the kitchen.

    Cons

    Other than the normal tech/design company woes like staying super late sometimes to get the job done, fix issues, etc., there's not too much to complain about.
