Pros

Taulia has a very dedicated and driven team. They know their trade and are not afraid to get their hands dirty. The best thing really is the camaraderie - in good and bad times the team works closely together to deliver on their commitments. Community and collaboration is a big part of the team.
The monetary compensation is fair compared to the market - but you don't work here just for the money. You work here to have a position in a really strong, low-ego team that pulls in the same direction to achieve great things. If you are looking for a 9-5 job that pays well and doesn't require you to step up your game and get better at what you are doing then this is the wrong place.
The team strives for customer satisfaction, business-case delivery and building a great company. Not just for "a job".
The new office locations outside of SF (Park City, Utah; Austin, TX; London, UK; Sofia, Bulgaria) are really tied into the overall community and there is no 2nd-class citizen at Taulia ever - from the intern up to the C-level team everybody is treated well and people value everybody's work. I could not have joined a better team at a better time.

Cons

Hiring the competitive markets that Taulia is in there are sometimes people joining for the wrong reasons. They leave relatively soon - but Taulia could be even better by making sure the wrong people don't stick around for the wrong reasons. It is hard to sustain this really fast growth and only hire great people - but Taulia could be even better at parting ways from the ones who are not a great fit. This is only a small piece though - the culture is great and people are great. But if I had to choose, this would be an improvement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We grew to from 50 - 160 people in a really short time - continue paying attention to good systems that support this growth. Don't be afraid to change approaches radically if the new environment with more people and larger size requirers it. Also - keep an eye on the culture (as you are doing!) and sort out the bad pieces quickly.

    I worked at Taulia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Brilliant and motivated young people who work hard and care about their jobs. The Product and Engineering teams are particularly well run—with great leadership—and those teams are very tight/close. Taulia has awesome health benefits, commuter cards, catered lunches, weekly happy hours, a game room, a wet bar, go-carts and all the top-tier startup benefits one would expect. Staff work hard together and play hard together--most are sincerely good friends also. If you’re a young engineer there might not be a better place to work in the City. Taulia has an innovative product that is constantly evolving and will be extremely successful.

    Cons

    Senior/C-Level staff are super-smart and passionate, but they’re also sophomoric, impulsive and foster a frat-boy like environment within the company. Examples: it’s encouraged to ask potential job candidates the dirtiest joke they know during interviews; a C-level manager showed a graphic during a meeting, a parody of the John Deere logo, that promoted bullying to get a laugh; our manager took us on a retreat where all we did was drink for 3 days straight—not one iota of work or “goal-setting for the year” was done.

    You probably won’t be successful, or C-level management, if you don't fall within the current paradigm of male, under 40, straight and white. If you’re over 35 your resume will definitely get passed over by the current marketing leader. The company has a core value of diversity, but is predominately young, white males. Taulia’s real diversity comes from the many European countries the staff comes from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify your staff and provide an HR department where staff can speak privately and openly about work environment issues. Provide sensitivity training to your managers to foster a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

    Pros

    The people are great. It is nice to work with a growing and passionate group of people who are interested in the product. Very international too which keeps things interesting and exciting.

    Cons

    Nothing specific that doesn't affect every company. The work life balance is good and the locations is great. Might not have the same perks as more established companies.
