It's a work-hard, play-hard environment with some very smart people that are enjoyable to work with.

Pros

The salary is very competitive and you're given full autonomy to get your work done - but the team is always willing to help when/if needed. Management always has an open door and there's always an opportunity to speak your peace or to ask questions. It's a relatively small team, but everyone seems to get along and work well together. Oh, and half-day Fridays during the Summer... I love that!

Cons

There's very few bad few things to say about working at Yapta. Pioneer Square after dark isn't always pleasant, but there's not much you can do about that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the open door policy with your employees. It's important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that it takes a real toll on people to constantly have directions change out from under them. Be honest.
