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

Pros

I'm always learning new technologies; the culture and atmosphere is very friendly; I love being able to work with others; my managers are always desiring for me to grow;

Cons

You don't always know what's going across different departments; a lot of the projects you work do end up being very similar and mundane; might have to work late shifts some time;

    I have been working at Switchfly full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Ping Pong Table
    - Catered Lunch once a week
    - Talented Developers & IT support

    Cons

    - Incompetent directors and managers who scratch each other's backs since most of them are long timers. This comment applies especially to senior level folks in Engineering and Product Management. Common practice for these folks is to get new hires to get work done, take credit for work performed by them and then fire the new hires
    - Teams are very cliquish and behave like teenagers with minimal professionalism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand issues of your direct reports and help them in resolving issues if required rather than firing

    I worked at Switchfly part-time

    Pros

    Friendly people, great location, good pay, fun office atmosphere

    Cons

    Their product isn't the most exciting thing in the world, so it is difficult to be super passionate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
