I have been working at Tagged full-time for more than a year

Pros

As with most competitive and thriving startups, the employee benefits and perks here are great and often exceed expectations.

The company culture is strong and quarterly team events, clubs, tournaments, hackathons, and awesome co-workers contribute to a good work/life balance and create a consistently positive and fun work environment.

The executive team is always open to employee feedback and strives to be transparent with the entire team.

Cons

Because the company is profitable and quickly growing, some of the startup mentality has disappeared. At times some employees seem to be along for the ride and more concerned with the day to day perks rather than working with an "all in" mentality.

The product vision changes frequently and in terms of mobile apps, there seems to be a pattern of playing catch up with popular trends rather than leading with well thought out concepts that play to the company's strengths and users.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With a strong and growing user base and a talented team of individuals all of the pieces are in place for a truly exceptional company. A refined and innovative vision can tap into this potential as Tagged continues to grow.

    I have been working at Tagged full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is encouraged to work together to achieve results, so if you're a team player, you will fit in. Individuals are celebrated and recognized when they go above and beyond in helping their teammates, within their own department and across the company. It's a very open work environment, in the literal sense with open office seating (no cubicles or private offices) and also in the broader sense with the executives fostering transparency about what's going on with the company (financials, board decisions etc). You will really shine if you are willing to be flexible and scrappy (startups are often short on resources), but there are also unique opportunities here to learn skills outside of your normal responsibilities, try on many hats and collaborate with different teams. The best part of working here is experiencing a culture that encourages all teammates to really care and consider each other, and the management team definitely looks out for its employees. Employees are not taken for granted here, and that is something very special.

    Cons

    Like any startup, the company goals, initiatives and product direction changes frequently, and sometimes the employees get restless and want the management team to pick a course and stay on it. If you don't like change, don't work at a startup. Tagged, in particular, is always evolving as it is on a path to IPO, so if you're not comfortable strapping down for the ride, you will definitely get frustrated, and a corporate company may suit you better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the CEO in particular: you have a team here that loves the company and so badly wants to see it succeed. Be driven and passionate about leading Tagged to a victory, and you will have a ready army behind you. While employees do appreciate how well you treat them (culture, benefits etc), they also want to see you make Tagged as awesome on the outside for the whole world to see as it already is on the inside.

    I worked at Tagged as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Very nice work atmosphere, everyone works real hard, very trusting workplace, come and go when you want, lots of meeting rooms, expect plenty of 1-on-1s and group meetings, excellent catered lunch and dinner daily

    Cons

    Not too many, except maybe listen a bit more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to everyone who works there, and you will get a truer perspective of things. When a company gets to be 100+ employees, getting a real picture of things gets blurry. Some people just work, some like to show they work, and one often cannot tell the difference. So dig deeper, Tagged Management !
