    I worked at Klout full-time

    Pros

    Fun Pre-sale to Lithium, Klout was basically a high-functioning frat house. It's come down to earth a bit now. Amazing culture full of people who know how to hammer out work. We somehow executed well as a team, despite the fact that what we executed could loosely be described as "product strategy." Great Teammates Not going for drama, just truly never seen worse management. How SF billionaires thought this group was worthy of, and could manage their millions in investment is beyond me. We sold, but at what cost? Fear of layoffs, layoffs, hope of a massive sale, missed opportunities for massive sales, becoming a meme for Silicon Valley. But I've never had better coworkers. I don't know if we were any good at our jobs, but we tried harder than everyone around us and enjoyed almost every day. I have lifelong friends that I adore. I'm so grateful to have shared Pistol Whip Alley with them. Network A high-ranking exec told me they'd give me a recommendation to any company I wanted. I think that would have hurt my chances of being hired, so I left them off my resume. My coworkers told me they'd recommend me anywhere. I'd recommend them anywhere.

    Cons

    No vision. No communication. Little hope. Sold to a company that makes Klout boring, but at least gives it structure.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.

    You must be ready for this level of energy and pace. Previous startup experience should be a must.

    Pros

    VERY fast paced and environment, where quality of work, skill, and enthusiasm gets you to where you want to be. Slacking off and trying to get by doing the bare minimum won't fly here. Problem solving is valued, and execution is rapid. Klout's overall mission is admirable and fascinating.

    Cons

    Lots of work due to small teams, scope of projects is very grand, and timelines often very agressive so meeting goals is hard. Real commitment to Klout means letting other things in your life fall by the wayside. Lots of executive decisions are made with no input from the rest of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you hire to make the right decisions. Keep making the company you want to make, not the one the investors tell you will make money.
