I have been working at Extensis full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Extensis really delivers the employment experience that they promise...they treat employees fairly and with respect, provide a casual and fun environment that makes working hard much more fulfilling, upper management is open and accessible, and the importance of work/life balance is recognized and not just talked about. I've worked for companies that talked the talk...Extensis walks the walk. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.
Cons – Because of the (convenient) downtown location, on-site parking is expensive. However, they do subsidize parking AND provide monthly transit passes at no cost to the employee. As someone who drives and parks, the cost of parking is a con for me...
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros – The people, work environment and company culture are a few of the reasons why Extensis has many long term employees. The employees are smart & talented and the company treats employees well. There is a good work/life balance and great company benefits.
Cons – Career opporunity at a small company can be challenging. We have opportunities like any company but why do so many people come back to Extensis. The reasons listed above. I am female that has been with the company for many years and it's been a terrific place to work.

I have been working at Extensis full-time for less than a year
Pros – location; benefits are good. Not much else.
Cons – Product design Communication is bad, up until now they have allowed the developers to decide direction of product despite customer desires. No career advancement. Not a very diverse company and environment is all but hostile to women. If you are the kind of woman that doesn't like communication outside of your job role, or aren't willing to invest 3 times the effort for the same cultural payoff (promotions etc), this isn't the place for you. I don't really find the other employees that friendly, except in the most shallow way possible.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire a more diverse staff. Break up the good ol boys network a bit. Sensitivity training should be on your docket. Hiring women or minorities does not equal creating a good culture for them, either, but it would be a start.

I worked at Extensis
Pros – The working environment is quite nice, most people have offices with doors, and excellent views of downtown Portland. The sales force and QA and tech support are really nice people, and are fun to work with.
Cons – The engineering organization is dysfunctional - they deliberately hide information about products from marketing and project managers, and provide alternatives to marketing that is really outrageous, and then follow up with their real idea. There was no talk of career mobility, just talk and pressure of getting the job done, day after day. The senior leaders deliberately manipulate information or don't tell the entire truth when holding meetings.
Advice to Senior Management – Be more transparent to what is going on in the company, and why decisions are being made
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
