Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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

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

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Tango full-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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)

    I worked at Tango full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people are decent to work with, assuming they don't quit after a few months.

    Cons

    What else to add that other reviews haven't? Awful management team led by autocratic CEO who makes egotistic, reactionary business decisions. The employee turnover here is astounding. Everyone is unhappy. Most of the employees are H1B and are stuck here. I know several have resigned the day after their visa went through.

    Advice to Management

    Sell! Everyone who is hanging on just wants to cash out before the truth comes out about this place.
