Pros

Great people, great technology, management really cares about employees and keeping them engaged while growing very quickly. Management is very supportive of employees changing roles and trying new jobs to continue their growth and development. It is one of the best companies that I've ever worked at.

Cons

The company is growing so fast that roles can change quickly at times, and the culture is evolving as new employees are hired. I think biggest weakness is that management relies on informal communication and email too much and as we grow we need much more formal communication to ensure everyone is on the same page going forward.

Advice to Management

Hire someone to be in charge of internal corporate communications to publish a semi-monthly newsletter and communicate key hiring decisions or role changes internally quickly and efficiently. Limit emails sent across the company

    Pros

    Love the company, culture, growth opportunities, founders, crazy growth...oh, actual technology that WORKS!

    Cons

    Growth is really hard. You can't make everyone happy and some people can't cut it in this environment - need to assess those that are being brought on / new hires at this time that will continue to contribute to the culture in a positive way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees, give growth structure and opportunities in all departments and bridge the gap between departments.

    Pros

    Great growth trajectory, lots of smart, dedicated people.

    Cons

    C-level out of touch with company sentiment, even with their own direct reports
    Political infighting between groups
    Fake culture
    Don't respect and love their customers

    Advice to Management

    Be more real. Listen to your direct reports. Build an honest culture that reflects your personality, not what you think the market wants.
