I have been working at Tagged full-time

Pros

Lots of perks (other reviews cover this).
Recently, company is very willing to take risks and move in "unpopular" directions, i.e. willing to let culture take a backseat sometimes. Hope to see more of this type of internal growth and focus.

Cons

Many people working at Tagged do not seem to understand the larger technological forces at play (other reviews point at Google and Facebook as if they're the only others...). There's a technological culture at Tagged that is sorely missed: where are the seasoned developers and engineers? Why is data storage such a mess? Why are there so many holes in the product's infrastructure? Why hasn't there been a serious drive to stabilize and beautify the product?

Internal competition leaves much to be desired. Teams fight for product ownership, other's are milquetoast in fear of responsibility, others result to name calling or worse. This is unhealthy and teams need to band together in an effort to make the product better. Competition is great, but adversary is not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A dose of reality is probably needed: Don't talk about changing the world if you're unwilling to change the product into something that deserves to be around in the future. It comes off as insincere and gilded.

Is Tagged a business or a daycare for adults?

Keep the perks, but also demand more from teams. Don't be afraid to say something is crap and start over. Have higher standards, but also understand that perfection doesn't happen over night.

Slaughter the pig, eat the bacon, keep moving forward.

    I worked at Tagged as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good perks and good hours

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't know what they are doing, but it doesn't really affect me so I still rate 5 stars.

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

    Pros

    The talented people, the culture, the perks, and the opportunity to advance and have an impact. Some places just preach meritocracy, but Tagged backs it up. Good work is rewarded and you are excited to keep succeeding.

    Cons

    Sometimes strategic priorities shift too often, and some product decisions seem questionable. Also sometimes they run out of my favorite bottled beer before I can grab a second one during every Friday team meeting/happy hour. Sometimes you have to scout the lunch menu ahead of time if you want to get your favorite thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're on the right track, just deliver.
