    Not the best company to work for

    I have been working at Fiksu full-time

    Pros

    It is a great place to start if you went to school for something different and want to try something new in your career. Free Thursday lunch and unlimited vacation

    Cons

    Compensation: Extremely low
    Company values: unstructured
    Office culture: pretentiously warm, old timers get away with anything
    Work: Make it sound like your job will be exciting and ends up not being as cutting edge as they claim. False advertising
    Honestly if you have other options in career search take those because for a company that is "best company to work" they luck great management and organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get organized and listen to employees. Improve on structure and give proper direction. Don't sale a position to someone and they end up just siting and doing nothing

    I worked at Fiksu full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Young and fun coworkers, a well stocked kitchen, free food on Thursdays, and most importantly, a brilliant work-life balance offering.

    Cons

    Lack of organization or structure. Everyone seems to do what they want - this is great initially, but once the novelty of this misleading freedom, along with the free food and snacks which blinds employees, wears off, you realize that the place is just an average/below-average firm that pays it's employees less than market averages. This is a great place to for mid-level managers looking to continue their career but if you plan on starting your career here, I'd suggest you give it some more thought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more diversity
    A more professional HR staff
    More communication with the staff.

    I have been working at Fiksu

    Pros

    Relaxed start up culture (but you will obviously work hard), free lunch Fridays and unlimited vacation. The CEO and most of the upper management are very smart, nice people.

    Cons

    If you are not involved with the campaign management, you're not really cared for. Upper management seems to only care about growing as fast as possible. Also the HR department doesn't seem to take employees issues too seriously. If you are grandfathered in at the company apparently you can just treat everyone like crap and it's okay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step away sometimes and think about everyone in your company, bottom and top.

    Pros

    Smart, smart, smart people. This is the #1 reason I went to work there and the #1 reason I stay. I want to work with people I learn from every day.

    Cons

    Its a startup, so it comes with a bit of the unpolished edges, but on-par everything is going in the right direction.

    I have been working at Fiksu

    Pros

    Fiksu provides excellent opportunities for advancement and creative input. As a rapidly growing start-up company in the red hot mobile advertising space, Fiksu is an exciting place to work.

    Cons

    Starting compensation for entry level employees is somewhat on the low side. A 401K plan is provided but without a company match.
