Product development: unmet potential

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThe company is a lot of fun. They give a lot back to the community, which is cool. Work environment is very laid back, the people are all great. The company shuts down between Christmas and New Years, which is nice. That is in addition to our already generous amount of paid time off. Other benefits seem to be above average. Company pays for nice equipment to work on, and has a fairly generous training budget.

ConsPeople in product development have a measurable amount of frustration. The company has grown a lot, and the CEO/CTO (same person) thinks the scrappy, short-term problem solving attitude that worked when the company had 20 people is still appropriate when the company has a few hundred employees. There is a no-work-from-home policy: the company requires you take a day of paid time off rather than put in a day of work if you have to stay home for a home repair or a sick child or a delivery or whatever. CEO seems to put more of a premium on quantity of features in the product rather than overall usability of the product.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company needs a full time CTO. The CEO needs to learn to trust the people that he hires. He needs to stop meddling at the team level, and treat people with more respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
