Pros

- Employees (and especially senior management) are some of the brightest, humblest, and hungriest people I've ever met. That's a rare combination to find and it's awesome when your senior leadership team exudes all 3 qualities.
- All the process of a larger corporation (in the good sense that things don't get out of control), but the bureaucracy of a startup.
- Senior management/HR follows through on their promises. We were told we'd have a 401k plan, new benefits and other things within a certain quarter and they were all delivered.

Cons

- Sometimes feels like a frathouse (loud, beer leftover in common areas, beer pong tables). The Sales side of the office tends to skew younger in age, so this is understandable.
- Not too clear on communicating one's career advancement. Not sure if there are regular reviews for employees.
- Working on the weekends/working late in the office isn't mandatory, but those that do it are perceived to be the "harder workers."
- The company is geographically, in the middle of nowhere. Going out to lunch is nonexistent and your nearby eating options consist of the cafeteria which is like a college dorm mess hall. The good news is that it forces you to bring your own food, thereby saving money.

    Pros

    - Great people: both in terms of demeanor and in talent
    - Challenging work: in a good way!
    - Lots of fun: dodging nerf guns, hanging in the hammock, or playing ping pong is only the tip of the iceberg!

    Cons

    - Work/Life balance? - it's hard to say this is a "con" as many people enjoy being there and hang out, but this environment would be difficult for those looking to leave after 8 hours every day.

    Pros

    Healthy work environment with room to grow. It's always exciting, humorous and enjoyable. If you work hard, then you're rewarded appropriately. Not your standard sales job. There are always plenty of snacks.

    Cons

    As with any job, the cons are perceived and situational. Tight work conditions and budgets, which is standard for any start-up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not schedule meetings before 9 AM. That should be a company rule- No meetings before 9 AM!
