    Pros

    the best part about Fanhattan is getting up everyday and working with the brightest minds in silicon valley and hollywood to invent the future. this is a great company in the making and there is a strong vibe in the office that we are all in this together. it's the perfect example of that silicon valley start-up.

    great perks like membership to equinox gym, catered lunches, movie nights, great 401k and health care.

    strong management team and leadership.

    Cons

    the company is growing so fast, we are all packed in the office... but that is a temporary situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep running ahead...

    Pros

    Office looks nice. Great compensation. The Product Manager is a reasonable person.

    Cons

    No headroom to grow. The computer is financially weak with a product that has to reach million of people, yet nobody knows about it. Office is too small for the number of people and has no privacy. There is nothing startup about the company except the look of the office. Company is running out of money soon without a new round of funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your marketing and let the engineers drive the product design more.

    Pros

    Inspiring CEO, Strong and experienced team, huge vision, amazing passion, friendly work environment, lots of perks including meals, heath club, and corporate benefits, movie buffs, mentorship, generous company events and activities.

    Cons

    Fanhattan is not (yet) located in San Francisco city, currently located in San Mateo, which means commuting for employees in the city. That being said, the office is located a few blocks from the train and provides transit or parking passes.

    I have been working at Fan TV as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Work alongside some of the most creative, driven and fun people from Hollywood and Silicon Valley, as well as the Hulk, Iron Man and Han Solo whose life-sized figures cheer you on at your spacious and sunny desk. Get paid to talk about and watch TV shows and movies. Make entertainment technology better.

    Cons

    Most of us can't spend the WHOLE day watching videos. The generous spread of free food and beverages also makes it hard to keep those New Years' resolutions, although there ARE healthy options like fruit, nuts and green tea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work -- you're building something uniquely awesome here.

    Pros

    At Fanhattan we all work very close together. We have daily stand-ups at the start of everyday on our all of our products. Everyone is well versed in each product and constantly updated on their statuses. We have all hands meetings monthly both on and off-site. Catered lunch is a common occurrence and off-site events with teams are always a blast. Weekly one-on-one meetings with upper management are appreciated, this provides the opportunity to verbalize problems and concerns.

    Cons

    Office is a little small and sometimes loud for this growing company. Can be particular about who they hire (which can be both good and bad).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is always room to improve team communication, compared to when I first started this has changed dramatically!
