Pros

Fun, and empowerment, and fun. Did I mention fun?
Yes, every company wants to think that they're fun to work for, but few walk the walk. Many company Web sites have pics of employees looking like they're really enjoying themselves. However, the proof of the pudding is whether said employees will 1. have positive things to say about the company and 2. actually care enough to tell everybody about it. This review is one piece of the proof that _YOU_, too, want to get here ASAP.

Cons

I feel that, at least in the Development group, the structure is quite loose. If one needs a reasonably structured engineering environments, one might not fit well here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. You guys are doing great at your prime directive: make Spiceworks a fun place to work.

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated, fun coworkers who have become like family to me.

    Cons

    I don't think of this as a con, but if the "pros" are that I feel surrounded (and supported) by smart, dedicated, fun coworkers, then the con would be if you're not dedicated, smart or fun you probably won't like it much here. :)

    Current Employee - Software Developer in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Spiceworks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is pretty awesome here
    Founders are real people who interact with the rest of us
    No stagnation
    Great work-life balance
    Free snacks and catered breakfast every Monday and Friday

    Cons

    Growing pains like crazy! We're got hockeystick growth here!
    Benefits could be better, but it's not a huge deal. It'll get better once we're out of the startup phase.
    The pace may be too fast for some

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've got nothing. I love management here.
