    Pros

    The environment is good, free food and soda, management usually tries to engage employees. Work life balance is possible in some areas. The company monitors the Internet for criminal activity.

    Cons

    Recent senior executive changes began to take the fun out of the environment. Some very good people left last Fall and since then. Technical debt. Meh projects to work on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it fun. Allow more experimentation for product and engineering teams. Focus and keep senior leadership stable.

    Pros

    There are some very intelligent people that work for G2. They are a good reason to work there.

    Cons

    The company is changing their path. They have let go of the President, the SVP of Sales and the thought leaders for the company. Not a good sign!!

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, vacation/sick policy. Small company and great ability to affect change, a lot of freedom to make and implement decisions. New CEO is aligning departments in a positive way. Great culture with a lot of perks for a smaller company.

    Cons

    Getting better but need focused direction, also need to spend more time focused on dealing with low performing staff. Need to move from a "start up" feel to more discipline, paying some tech debt, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused and bring in key technology talent needed for positive growth and the ability to deliver quicker

    Pros

    Solid core service offering, though under pressure, means the company has solid business footing. A more robust technology backend is automating manual work and improving service quality Flexible PTO policy and office environment, free cereal and soda A great opportunity to learn grow as company is in the midst of expanding from its core business

    Cons

    Initiatives need to be focused and less scattered. A little bit of shiny candy syndrome has crept in Not all departments are rowing in the same direction Vestiges of prior management dysfunction, mostly but not completely fixed with new leadership Some frustration from more tenured employees about ability to contribute to new strategy

    Advice to Management

    Get the company back on a growth track without losing the spirit and teamwork that has gotten us this far. Listen to the employees who have been here for earlier chapters of G2.

    Pros

    G2 Web Services offers room for growth within and across departments, and promotes from within where possible. The company provides a flexible time off policy, so we can take as much time off as we need within reason. The benefits are great, with full medical, vision and dental paid, 401k match and transportation reimbursement. G2 is a technology and data company, with a fast-paced environment and interesting, unique products. Management has an open door policy, and while the company is mid-sized, it's easy to have your voice heard. Overall, I definitely recommend working at G2 Web Services.

    Cons

    I don't love commuting to Bellevue, although the partial transportation reimbursement is nice. And the building temperature is pretty chilly. Overall, no major complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Management has greatly improved over the past few years, and we have a passionate and engaged management team that is dedicated to the success of G2 and making it a great place to work.

    Pros

    Genuinely friendly professional atmosphere, engaged helpful management, insurance, snacks, The feeling that may work makes people safer and contributes to making the web (and by extension our world) a much safer place.

    Cons

    I haven't been here very long, but this company feels like it has a lot of people, especially Ed Barton, that care about the impact our work has in securing payment processing services.

    Advice to Management

    Move fast, live rich ;) haha

    Pros

    Flex schedule for some, free snacks/drinks, bonus structure

    Cons

    Flex PTO can be abused and is, poor management, retaliation against employees

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming the employees for a someone elses bad performance.

    Pros

    - Very friendly atmosphere between coworkers. - There's always something new happening every day, either internally or from a client. - Management is there for support, but likes to step back and let people do the work they know they need to do. - Working hard and helping out other people when possible does get you recognized. - Constant opportunities to learn - Big push for promotion from within, especially with employees who go above and beyond their position to help the company as a whole. - Feedback is awesome. You're told when something works well, encouraged when you find a new oddity that may help a client, and also shown how to improve your work if something is not quite perfect. Rather than be told this is wrong and fix it, managers are helpful to find out how to fix the problem and move forward.

    Cons

    - Better inter-department coordination would help with strategies and alleviate the stress on fast and urgent projects. - More conference rooms, and people sticking to the conference room schedule. - The building seems to be set on 'artic' heat level.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping the entire group informed on strategies while also building rapport with all the employees is awesome, keep it up.

    Cons

    Some degree of quarterly churn or fallout, though the trend is improving One or two groups need better departmental coordination and process

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the current path! This company has become a dynamic, energetic and exciting place to work.
