    I worked at Medio full-time

    Pros

    You are given significant responsibility from day 1. Everyone assumes that you are highly intelligent and if you don't know something you are exptected to learn it very quickly.

    Cons

    Majority of the work is self taught with little to no guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more structure for the onboarding process.

    Current Employee - Intern in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Medio as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Free snacks and food in the kitchen, great teamwork atmosphere where I feel like I can ask anyone for help, cool products to work on. They give you two dual monitors and basically everything you need to get through the day and concentrate on work. Commute is super easy downtown and its a nice view too.

    Cons

    My position is very typecast and so it may get repetitive sometimes but other employees can definitely work on some cool projects and get some free room to innovate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the diversity in project types

  6.  

    Medio is one of the better, more established mobile tech startups to cut your teeth at, esp. for Big Data Analytics.

    Current Employee - Senior Engineering Lead in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Medio full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    technology vision, engineering leadership, scalable cloud, huge upside opportunity--every company is going mobile and they need what we are building.

    Cons

    engineering leadership in the past years hasnt been as well integrated with the product teams, but i've seen this at other startups in seattle (less so from the bay area). need a stronger sales team focused more on selling cloud-based software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management should focus on deepening partnerships with top providers of other mobile-industry solutions that our stuff complements really well with our analytics and real-time data pipeline. Also, hiring more data/application engineers and data scientists.

    I have been working at Medio

    Pros

    Great place to get mobile experience and see implementations across ecosystem. Great downtown Seattle location, and really smart people to work with. Good kitchen, free everything.

    Cons

    offices need an upgrade as they look like a quasi-attorney or perhaps a an public accounting firm's offices without the plush library.
