    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Motista full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are reading this and will avoid burning time you will never get back.

    Cons

    Scott. Scott. Scott. And Scott. Did I mention Scott? Wow. This guy could not run a lemonade stand.

    Advice to Management

    Stop watching "The Social Network". It's a movie, not a business model. By now you know the difference between real success and the fantasy.

    I have been working at Motista full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Solid and working business model Realistic, stable and low-drama work environment CEO with proven track-record Emerging thought-leader in the marketing intelligence space In a period of accelerating growth with a real possible upside to stock-options / equity in 1-3 years

    Cons

    Thin technical team (but growing) Lots of impending change Production pressure currently on the rise threatens the maintaining of a long-term view Not top of the line office or equipment Good salary but not a lot of perks outside of that

    Advice to Management

    Keep a big picture view of the business at hand and don't too quickly discount the value / need of a technical backbone to your product.
