Pros

Working on software that people actually want to use is always a plus. Despite fast growth, the people all seem to be on the same team, and are all quite capable.

Cons

Old code base with a fair number of Windows-specific assumptions, with no good way to learn.

Remote meetings never really work well, lots of time wasted setting these up.

    Pros

    Great Product and buzz around company

    Cons

    Sales organization is very junior and led very tactically without a strategic vision or purpose. The leaders of the sales organization are in-experienced and need additional coaching by the CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in Sr. Executive leadership who have DONE it before - the CEO is a great external leader who is very pasionate - this needs to be the culture of ALL of the leaders.

    Pros

    The products are excellent and the roadmap for future improvements is genuinely exciting. The engineering staff is top notch - you get to work with really bright people without egos getting in the way. The (rapidly growing) customer base is almost fanatical in their love of the product. Work/life balance is achievable here compared to most places. What you do here actually matters - people are going to use and depend on what you build.

    Cons

    Late stage startup so if you are looking for a garage startup where there is no technical baggage or a huge company where you can just hide and slack, this isn't it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good communication and the solid, inclusive planning.
