I worked at shopkick full-time for more than a year

Pros

Super smart and energetic engineers.
The engineering team is smart enough to implement any solution or fix any problem in a matter of weeks.

Cons

Exec team. People who wanted to spend time with family over weekends were almost made to feel guilty about it. Same goes for going home at a reasonable time after work.
Exec team felt that you were a slave, since you were getting a paycheck.

    Pros

    They always say how great of a company they are.

    Cons

    But that is not enough...I think the idea is doom to fail since people want to buy everything online any way since it is much cheaper. You can not fool the people.

    I worked at shopkick full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere and some really brilliant engineers.

    Cons

    Its hard to put into words how poorly treated I was during my short stint at Shopkick. On more than one occassion I was berated, belittled and battered. I left the company by choice with a very sour taste in my mouth, largely due to the CEOs unprofessionalism and ego. I would highly recommend that those valuing professionalism, education, and excellence stay away from this organization. There are many other start ups in the Silicon Valley doing bigger and better things. Don’t settle for mediocrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't abuse your employees. Word gets around....especially to your investors.
