    I have been working at Spredfast full-time

    Pros

    Some great people in the trenches....decent compensation plans....and a good space to be in -- although not near as 'world changing' as all the Austin Hipsters run around telling themselves it is

    Cons

    While the CEO is a smart and has talent, the layer beneath him is worthless. Insecure, low quality backgrounds, and completely in over their head at anything besides playing on LinkedIn. Result: Micro-managing control freaks in V neck tshirts, who think the world begins and ends in 'Austin'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire grown ups from real companies, who actually know what they're doing.

    Great coworkers if you are under the management level, but too many politics and not worth it in the end

    I worked at Spredfast full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Tight knit group of workers under management level
    - Compensation is decent but not great
    - Fun industry and you get to work with large enterprise brands
    - Some perks like free food, drinks, and some team building events

    Cons

    - Management favors anyone that has previously worked with them at their last successful company. If you did not you are out of luck.
    - Extremely difficult to move up or get a promotion. They like to hire outside the company for that
    - Management team is not trustworthy or loyal to employees. Too many politics and egos for an Austin startup

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening, trusting, and being loyal to your employees goes a long way. Give people that aren't from your past successful company a chance. As a former employee I've heard the same thing over and over from other former employees. It's time you actually listened or culture and company sentiment will not improve.
