    Former Employee - Enterprise Delivery Manager in Long Beach, CA

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

    Pros

    An innovative company whose founder actually created a market for data that didn't exist before. At the time of my employment Etilize was a successful, multi-national company with employees in the US, Canada and Pakistan. It was purchased by GfK, a huge German marketing behemoth.

    Cons

    The bulk of Etilize's employees are in Pakistan. The time difference can be an asset in a 24 hour world, but can make separating work time and personal time difficult. Understandably, employees need to be available to support the company's customers at any time of the day or night.

    I have been working at Etilize

    Pros

    Company is very flexible on hours but is very focused on stated results. Management communicates clearly and often, no guessing. Feedback is clear and timely. Global company with many talented people who are intelligent and very helpful. A place for dedicated people who enjoy working and a fast paced atmosphere.

    Cons

    A lot to learn very quickly. Being global means never meeting the majority of coworkers and learning many different cultures. Some may feel that the clear feedback is harsh but I very much prefer it. Not a place for people who are afraid of leaving there comfort zones, you will be expected to achieve results without all a clear playbook. Not for the fait hearted, you will be challenged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on present track – it is working. Continue to question everything and challenge employees. It would be great to have a clearer “who does what” chart.

    I worked at Etilize

    Pros

    The pay was good, their niche was advantageous to the market because there is almost no competition

    Cons

    You are expected to give one of your limbs or your firstborn to work here. If you want time off you will be guilted heavily by the senior management and others. Those who work 18 hours per day are the ones who get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people have a life. Stop the intimidation and unspoken threats to those who have families. Try to evolve with your product suite

    I have been working at Etilize

    Pros

    Company gives great flexibility.
    A lot of freedom for work/life balance.
    Good opportunities for taking ownership of projects since there is more work to do than people capable of doing it.

    Cons

    Focus is on costs instead of creating value.
    No effort or desire to attract and retain top talent - focus is on low cost.
    No innovation or new products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the people. It needs to be a place that people want to work, where smart, driven people are attracted to and retained.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Etilize full-time

    Pros

    - A Great place to start your career
    - Get to meet a lot of people from diverse cultural background
    - A very steady place to work
    - Great culture of helping co-workers
    - Humble Management

    Cons

    - Used to be a great innovation factory, but now the innovation has stopped
    - Company has grown in terms of size but the management style is still the same
    - Management does not constitute strategist who can think far ahead, thus its down to retaining what you have.
    - No culture of grooming an individual. If you are crazy enough to self-learn you'll fit right in.
    - No real career growth patterns for the smarter lot. If you are lucky you will be noticed, you will be appraised otherwise you'll get paid what every one gets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on People. There is no point in bragging about culture every month. Live the culture and nurture the talent. You started on the right foot and cared for your folks and thus you are here. If you don't care for them, you'll start decaying soon.
