Pros

Idealist CEO is a sweetheart and very concerned that his people are happy. 360 degree feedback encouraged. Responsive HR. Lots of genuine people working there.

Cons

Constant changes in pay structure, which are genuinely designed to reward certain behaviors but the reality is that people are getting paid less and less for more and more work. Disorganized growth spurts = growing pains, which is expected for a fast growing company but can be difficult to assimilate.

Advice to Management

More measured, well thought-out growth. Test feasibility and the possible effects on changes to salary structure before implementation to understand if desired changes are realistic rather than back pedaling later- what looks good in a spreadsheet might not work in real life and translates to disillusioned and demoralized workers who feel that your spreadsheets and bottom line are more important than their ability to make a living.

    If you're desperate for a job, skip this company. You're better off working in a fast food place.

    Pros

    Company mission. Coloful employees. Creativity is unlimited.

    Cons

    This company boast a great mission, but the Sr management team are amateurish at best. Favoritism is clearly the only key component to move up in this company. So if you want to move up within this company, kissing ass won't get you there, unless you're a child hood friend of the boss. You'll get a nice job title but at Mcdonald's wages, and will be overloaded with work. So, working 24/7 is a requirement at this place. Flip flop decision making from the Sr. Management Team. Unorganize with no proper rules and standard procedures in place. Work enviroment is typical startup with used furniture or "homemade" work stations, the place is also noisy, dusty, depressing and grim.

    Advice to Management

    Entire company need restructuring.
