    I have been working at VerticalResponse full-time

    Pros

    -Superb environment with great office demeanor
    -Good camaraderie within departments and in inter-department relations (relative to the rest of the corporate world)
    -Managers do a good job of not domineering
    -Respect shown amongst all peers from the bottom to the top of the totem pole and frankly, its difficult to tell there is a totem pole at times

    Cons

    -Sub-par pay compensation
    -Constantly correlate employee's tasks and projects with the overarching company goals and mission to show meaning and value behind what they do when it cannot always be directly seen
    -Empower employees!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees! Trickle down delegation does little. You have such bright talent that should be doing your job for you by brainstorming strategies/projects that they themselves will be tasked with implementing anyways. Take, what you probably perceive to be, a leap of faith with what/who you've got in front of you. Only then can you truly be an unparagoned company in your industry.

    There were no standards by which to measure your performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to create benchmarks and standards across all roles and departments.
