    Pros

    Walking distance to some great restaurants, awesome views, some fun people.

    Cons

    Poor salary, bad management, going no where. Each day is dismal.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a professional team. Create a positive environment. Lunches and parties aren't rewarding enough for hard work and dedication.

    Pros

    Working at Gogrid gave me a lot of freedom to be creative, I earned well, and the people on the sales side were highly professional and friendly. I'd not worked with many other departments, but holiday parties were enjoyable. A great bunch of loyal characters there.

    Cons

    There was little reward for innovation and what reward there was often required thick skin. The infamous, "no good deed went unpunished."

    Advice to Management

    Reward extra effort with freedom and respect. Start shifting away from a pure startup mentality.

    Pros

    Terrific Technology with bright, motivated people who work well as teams. Location is wonderful and Friday lunches were terrific.

    There was a good focus on keeping customers happy and helping them fully utilize GoGrid product and services.

    Benefits were awesome and the 401K matching was the best I've ever had

    Cons

    Senior Leadership was all over the map - and it bit them big time. Deciding the fate of the company and walking away from so many opportunities created a number of layoffs this year.

    Also caused an exodus of long time employees who didn't see a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Advice to Management

    Decide and act on final disposition of the company. Shareholders and employees need to see this happen soon

    Pros

    Good people, exposure to lots of technology, great office location.

    Cons

    The CEO has likely burned every bridge he has ever had, and seems to be ready to stab you in the back to make an extra cent at a moments notice. More than half the staff was laid off and you get the sense that he probably enjoyed it.

    Advice to Management

    Hand over the reigns to someone who knows how to run a business.

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated people that focused on helping each other
    Cool Technology that served customers well
    Started to focus on Career Paths

    Cons

    Leadership Lost Focus and went into a downward spiral. Layoffs have followed and the company is in survival mode.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent about your plans - focus more on how decisions will impact staff. The technology and services are outstanding, but without significant additional investment, the customer base will continue to shrink.

    Cons

    pay is not as competitive within its industry. Employee morals are down as management has changed a lot.

    Cons

    The arrogant CEO destroyed this company as he would not let folks that are trained to lead do their job. This company started going down when owner/CEO fired the CEO and his former friend. It's just a matter of time but this company isn't going nowhere and the pay is not good at all.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a career CEO, let developers develop finished products and pay your employees like they deserve to be paid. Stop playing with employees' minds -- be honest with them.
