    Pros

    Everyone is super friendly, and while people mock you for being different for a time, they eventually realize that that's just who you are. As long as you're ok with a startup like environment, I would recommend this place to work, since it has a great atmosphere, the leadership is great, and has a free office lunch every day (although the restaurant that serves the food lately has fallen on hard times). Most of the employees are early-30s and under, so you will fit in unless you're hard to get along with or don't have the motivation to do work.

    Cons

    The vacation is stingy, just 2 weeks off whereas in other companies they were more generous, some having as many as 2 weeks vacation and 2 weeks sick leave, in addition to maternity leave or daddy leave. They also have yet to have a raise for people involved with the team for less than 2 years. Snacks were constantly an issue as well, as foods were constantly ordered that were the same from Costco, even though some of them were stocked multiple times due to no one eating them.

    Advice to Management

    More vacation time would be appreciated, and while some might abuse the privilege you should reward those that use it sparingly, or even allow employees to "cash" out their paid time off. While the leadership is great from up top, the leadership in the middle or lower end isn't as great at delegating tasks and seeing visions. Admittedly, they are relatively new to agile development practices, but it's surprising how little they seem to care about code quality that they have no automated tests whatsoever and have no production-level app analytics for iOS or Android. Hopefully they can change that, otherwise, I don't foresee the future being great because while the company does occasionally trail-blaze, others often do a better job of following the products they make, launching their own version, and making a more useable product. In other words, the competition is doing a better job of quality assurance.

  2. Great place to work if you are into video

    Pros

    Work with some passionate people who are trying to build great products for the video industry.

    Cons

    Expect long hours from time to time, this is no 9-5 gig.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the good talent you have accumulated and the company won't stop growing.
