    Pros

    Really great lunches, fully stocked office - and I mean, stocked with every kind of food to the brim - friendly. supportive young team, sense of purpose, the chance to see the newest and most innovative projects come through every day, down to earth CEO who's full of passion. The company is on its way up, since the crowdfunding industry in general is growing quickly. Awesome perks.

    Cons

    You gotta really care about the work; there's no "just getting by" here. Constant pressure to perform. There's a lot of freedom and opportunity for ideas, which can feel a little isolating at times; entrepreneurial minds do best.

    Advice to Management

    As the company quickly grows, make sure to hold on to the startup mentality.


  2. Great Mission but Lacks Focus and Long-Term Vision

    Pros

    Pretty friendly environment. Snacks. Random Acts of Awesomeness are fun. The company mission is fantastic.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Constant change. Too many experiments. They move people around - across teams, roles, functions and never provide them additional compensation or support. Very top heavy. Lots of execs. Lack of diversity. Aside from one female founder, no other women on exec team. Bro mentality.

    Pros

    Super passionate people who genuinely cares to help others get funding, nice and chill office, love gathering weekly as a company to measure how well and the social good that we are working towards

    Cons

    Would like to have more mentorship in career development, more opportunities to grow within the team

    Advice to Management

    As we scale, more risk accompanies it. This needs to be accounted for. Keep investing in the employees.

    Pros

    Nice office, awesome campaigns coming through on a daily basis, feeling like your job is making a difference on an international level.

    Cons

    There is a lack of HR policy, employees have been fired day of and told to leave without even 2 week notice, no work life balance.

    Pros

    Indiegogo is a company that puts a lot of time into hiring smart people who really care about the mission of the company. People here are smart and super dedicated to the overall cause.

    Cons

    Things change rapidly. The company is also adding additional space, which will be awesome once all of the construction is completed soon.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to communicate changes to the staff and explain why certain decisions are being made.

    Pros

    Amazing team with great leadership in place. Fast paced and fun work environment. Everyone is genuinely excited to be here. Comparable salary and benefits. Offices are dog friendly.

    Cons

    Still missing a couple key hires at higher levels. Interview/Hiring process is strenuous but understandable wanting the right people in place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture as company scales. Stay transparent & keep listening to feedback.

    Pros

    Great team of people, amazing mission, very passionate management team and extended team. Fun office environment and a lot of people who really want to put their heads together to solve big problems.

    Cons

    There are lots of dogs - for many this is a pro :) Also because the company moves so fast communication could be better - buts its steadily improving and management is very open to feedback. Having management split across coasts is tough, too.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously think about everyone in the SF office.
