I worked at The Echo Nest

Pros

Bright, nice people, very young crowd

Cons

Senior management still has a bit of a sweatshop mentality. Not willing to invest fully to get to the next step in focusing of a balance between features and quality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't talk the talk, do the walk.

    I worked at The Echo Nest as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Environment is open and friendly, Co-workers are quirky and fun. Free lunch on Fridays is always a plus. Exciting projects and exposure to new music.

    Few opportunities for upward mobility. Would sometimes sacrifice quality of programming for ease.
