Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Tango full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Smart engineering team, fast-paced environment, growth opportunities, a great deal amount of cash, the management team always try hard to make the company better.

Cons

Young, inexperienced management team. All areas (engineering, product manager, operation, QA, HR) need improvement (mostly due to lack of experience). Working hours is too strict (informal mandatory hours: before 9:30 am). Working from home does not exist. Not family-friendly. Too much emphasize of long working hours than the actual productive output.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should offer more flexible hours (including working from home).

    Every negative review written about this company is true; the company needs a different CEO

    I have been working at Tango full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Strong growth metrics
    Compensation and benefits are on par with many SV companies
    There are pockets of very smart and hard-working people
    Most of the people are very nice and approachable

    Cons

    Leadership says they have values of trust, but doesn't demonstrate it day-to-day.

    The CEO is a shrewd businessman, rather than a leader that can inspire.
    -He tries to squeeze every bit of productivity out of the team through mandate and process.
    -He is very selfish: only uses the word "I" in conversations, not "we"; and it shows through his actions
    -He is a micromanager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    replace the CEO

    seek for and listen to internal feedback on how to make things better (if this happened, I bet there would be less Glassdoor reviews like this)
