Pros

The people are great. Made good friends at the company.

Ever changing management, especially on the engineering side. Engineering team going from modern tech stack to old and proprietary stack.

    I have been working at Viggle full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are super passionate, super talented, and just all around great to work with
    The office is pet-friendly so there's usually some adorable dog (or cat) running around
    The company is working on a really cool product in an exciting and interesting market

    Cons

    The office hours are technically 9a-6p, but people usually end up staying later than that and answering emails on the weekends because of the nature of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regular company-wide meetings are appreciated more than you might think :-)

    Pros

    Some incredibly smart people who are passionate about their work
    Great neighborhood and beautiful office
    Nerf guns; bagels and bacon Fridays
    Pet friendly

    Cons

    Smart and passionate people are leaving...FAST
    Shockingly inept and unethical engineering "leadership" which promises and doesn't deliver...and then lies about it
    Long hours
    Concerns from employees - including those leaving - are dismissed and ignored
    The product no longer works well, and is an outright embarrassment (see the reviews); the user base is plummeting
    Engineers are treated like machines, and distrusted by their own "leadership" - a bad idea in this market
    Misery and frustration is rampant among staff
    Little communication, and when it does happen, it's incomplete, incorrect, unprofessional, and too sporadic to be effective

    People bolt without jobs lined up, out of sheer frustration and disgust. Turnover is outrageous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the CTO, and then listen to the rest of the company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
