    I have been working at Pinpoint full-time

    Pros

    Pinpoint provides relaxed work environment with little stress and good work/life balance. Lot of the managers are supportive and understanding. There are some creative, smart and driven and some average employees, just like anywhere else. Colleagues are generally very friendly and welcoming. Company offers additional leave for christmas and birthday to everyone.

    Cons

    Pinpoint's culture has been - to a point, negatively affected by its (now former) owner who, calls all the shots, so nobody in the company is really empowered to make decisions which is shame because it is full of smart people. No real training or transfer opportunities exist for non-managerial staff, there are no career plans. Frequent changes of strategic direction for some departments, reasons for which are rarely explained. Employees often rely on rumours which spread with speed of light throughout networks of decade long staffers. Most of the information are secret and only selected few know the details. Instances of unethical behaviour are sometimes tolerated or driven by the execs. Company is crawling with directors who have been part of the 'pinpoint family' for years and who in some cases look after teams of 5 or less people.

    However Pinpoint was recently purchased by Mastercard and a lot of the above might be changing, depending on whether the new management takes up the opportunity at hand. I truly hope they will not be afraid to shake up the old culture in order to create leaner, more professional company, that has potential to be truly outstanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your people, empower them and make them accountable for their decisions. Take best practices from other companies and implement them in Pinpoint - do not be fooled by the display of company values on the kitchen wall.
