    Pros

    Fun and fast paced work environment. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Too many managers stepping on each others toes.

    Organize the groups better, combine and disband other groups that do the same thing.

    Pros

    Aggressive goals and commitment to be top in their field.

    Cons

    Leadership tends to overcommit the under-resourced development groups. They're trying to address systemic problems, but issues run deep across the organization's people, systems, and processes so progress can be painful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your people and provide them with resources they need to deliver and be successful. Hire or create better leaders. Organization is top-heavy with not enough skilled workers to get the job done right. Dysfunction is not just a worker issue, it starts with management.

    Environment and coworkers. It's a comfortable place to work and an interesting product. Overall, the conditions were good.

    Management turnover. It's nuts. It's disheartening when you see good people pushed out.

    Pros

    Good work environment, great people to work with, lots of interesting projects

    Cons

    Upper Management does not know how to run the business, the growth will be short lived and the company will end up in stagnation, unless there is a shake out of the senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that either the organization as a whole succeeds or fails. If you feel one part of the organization is more important than the other, that will be a recipe for disaster. Be involved in the happenings of the organization at all levels and provide guidance and vision to the organization as a whole. The company has great potential, unless there is a change in attitude at the management level, you will not be able to realize the full potential.

    Pros

    Gogo really cares about their employees. They are always thinking of fun, creative ways to do nice things for their employees or offer new benefits. They do company breakfasts, offer $100 monthly commuter benefits, free emergency day care, and have social gatherings. The people are so friendly at this company and you can tell they are proud to say they are Gogo employees.

    Cons

    Because of the large amount of growth in short period of time we continue to go through growing pains. Still trying to figure out best ways to organize departments and get people in best roles to help company be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a curriculum for Manager development training. There are so many new managers that really need guidance on how to best lead their teams. A structured training program would be really beneficial.

    Pros

    Great work/life ethic within a fast paced leading edge technology company.
    Moving downtown to be in the center of business and an active lifestyle.
    People are very supportive and always willing to help understand the products, services and language of our business.

    Cons

    Rapid growth means fast paced activity requiring rapid start-up. You must be willing to run with the herd or you will be left behind. Not for the timid or complacent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve the onboarding process. Give newbies a deeper dive into the products and services offered. An overview of frequently used acronyms would be very useful.

    Pros

    Fast-paced industry, fun environment, decent salaries

    Cons

    Growing pains, ambiguity, imbalance in employee recognition-some are promoted for what seems to be no concrete accomplishments, some with stellar accomplishments are passed over repeatedly

    Advice to Management

    company is too top-heavy, need more staff to do actual work
