    Pros

    Relaxed culture - everyone wears jeans and gym shoes, snack rooms, everyone is friendly

    Cons

    Bad leadership in operational groups -bunch of 20-somethings who are inexperienced and uneducated, low base salaries (not market value), no training, no performance feedback/reviews, cliquey culture, company seems uncertain about future and seems to make up growth numbers and performance metrics. If they IPO, they are going to be in trouble when they report earnings to the street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some experienced leaders in your operations departments - ones with outside experience that can manage employees properly. Hiring a 25 year old, because they performed as an entry level, to manage a team is going to cause problems.

    I worked at Yodle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The engineering department has some pretty cool technology and several very knowledgeable people in leadership roles. The company is very successful, largely due to a top notch sales department.

    Cons

    The company is on a beeline to go public. The engineers spend most of their time struggling with bugs and past engineering mistakes. Management's answer is "work harder".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some upper managers who are good with people. Be realistic about what you can accomplish. Be more aware of the seriousness and severity of engineers' unhappiness.
