Pros

They bring in some of the best engineers and analysts around.

Cons

The management changes plans every morning. They constantly get ahead of what can be done by the engineers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put more trust in your team since you don't know how to make the product.

    Worst of both worlds: bureaucratic corporate feel with startup hours

    I worked at Quid as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits with a fancy gym, nice library, free snacks and you get an iPad. The product itself is pretty cool. Location of office is nice. Meetings in the park.

    Cons

    There was a lot of corporate-style pigeonholing. You have to go through your manager to communicate with the guy who sits right next to you, which seemed silly. In a startup, with a few dozen people, you're supposed to work collaboratively. A lot of unhappy people work there, and you can feel it, after I ;eft, there has been a lot of turnover. Long hours, as are expected in a startup, but you don't really feel like part of a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of brilliant minds working there. Let them do their thing, don't bog them down with middle management hovering over their shoulders. It should be about collaboration!
