    Challenging, yet rewarding if you know what you want in your career. A tight-knit family.

    Creative Director (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsVERY 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.

    ConsLots 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 Senior ManagementTrust 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.
