I worked at SCVNGR as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Really fun, energetic company who hires fun, energetic people. Pay is competitive, commission structure in sales wasn't built for tacking on more than 10,000 extra per year--however the company changes various structures so quickly maybe it's changed by now.

One of the best internships you can get if you're a Northeastern student and going on Co-Op-- pays very well.

Cons

they fire people on short notice, dragged along a group of intern-to-full-times and instead of offering them full time jobs or letting them go, they just extended the sales intern contracts for another three months to "test" them out some more. Gave them a little bit more money but not worth it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be more transparent with your employees

    I worked at SCVNGR full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You'll be hard pressed to find a more casual work environment. Everyone wears jeans, they provided a lot of food, and it is incredibly social. You're given a lot of responsibilities which forces you to learn and adapt quickly, and really prepares you for roles at other companies.

    Cons

    Because it's a startup, sometimes it's a little disorganized. By the end of 2012 they were just scraping together a HR team, people's performance bonuses had be pushed back and, although the Chief Ninja often promotes transparency, there seemed to be things going on behind the scenes that weren't communicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organization and training for all management positions will go a long way. The company will be in an even stronger place!

    Pros

    Great energy, young company, you can work as hard as you want and you will keep getting new opportunities. Accomplishment is encouraged and appreciated, casual and direct communication is the norm, and it's a great way to learn a lot in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    People burn out pretty regularly (or they used to). A lot of stuff happens at the top and then people just disappear. Room for improvement with creating processes and being more organized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent. Don't over-work employees. Hire talent and reward them - aim to keep them around for the long-term.
