    I have been working at MeLLmo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice, intelligent coworkers. Office is located across the street from the beach. Not a lot of pressure to put in "face time" of extra hours beyond getting your work done. Not a lot of direct micromanagement.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low side, and there are no annual reviews or merit increases. No bonus program or stock options. Rather than delegating responsibility/ownership, management tends to assign tasks, so it's difficult to feel autonomy in your job. There is zero team planning and releases tend to drag out and hurt morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do something to focus on employee retention--we're a big enough company now for annual reviews. We've lost a lot of good people in recent months and will lose more unless some incentives beyond a steady paycheck and location across from the beach are offered. Let team members help with planning--you might come up with more realistic release plans that way.

    Pros

    Team is passionate about the work they do!
    Expertise in data visualization!
    Amazing product
    Really care about their employees.

    Cons

    Only con, but not really is that we are growing quickly, so we have to build out new offices. This is actually a positive thing! Amazing to see the growth!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cannot think of any.

    I have been working at MeLLmo

    Pros

    Nice office location, flexibility in working hours/telecommuting options, cutting edge technology, good opportunities for learning new things, good camaraderie/work environment, casual dress. The company treats employees well by providing snacks, food and other goodies. Management values the employees, and several of them have worked with the founder Santiago Becerra at previous jobs.

    Cons

    The company is strongly focused on results and performance, potential long hours/weekends, at times to meet aggressive deadlines, high stress at times. You must be able to perform. The company has a very casual culture, so it may be hard to fit in if you don't have the right personality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the excellent treatment that you give the employees. Continue with the way you communicate the vision of the company. Try to keep the existing company culture. Add more benefits, like tuition reimbursement or stock options to retain employees. Retaining your employees will be critical when growing the company.
