    Pros

    great pay, extremely young, fun and spirited employees.

    Cons

    The work was repetitive and boring, but that is only my opinion because I don't have an interest in going into sales.

    Extreme Tolerance for Retaliation

    Pros

    The CEO’s passion and tireless commitment to build better products. You can learn a lot from this. This is one of the biggest pros.
    Opportunity to learn new technologies.
    Better looking office and really a great chair for all employees
    The newly formed Crotia team. They know how to run a product team better than the guys in the LA office.
    Lots of free drinks and munchies

    Cons

    Total chaotic environment for sure. You can see many reviews says this.

    The company management doesn't enforce integrity and non-retaliation among the employees in the company.

    A couple of employees who don't deserve the positions for their skill level are building a team of trustable, loyal, silent, average skilled people who don’t question them. Many skilled voluble candidates have been rejected by them intentionally.

    At least a dozen people quit the company in the last 2 years just because of the extreme politics orchestrated by couple of employees.

    The biggest problem is full tolerance for retaliation. This affects the morale of the employees all the time. Even after several people raised so many retaliating complaints against a person, the management didn’t take any action, most who were directly reporting this person quit the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give strong importance to integrity and non-retaliation.

    Hire a better leader to lead the development in the LA.

    Please fix the actual root cause of the issues instead of posting fake reviews.

    Pros

    Really nice office and facilities and costco delivery. Plus the employees are really friendly.

    Cons

    Place has NO structure or management and unless you were fortunate to get in the company at the right time there is no opportunity to advance your career in any way (or make any real money). "Consultant" sits around making up numbers for quota out of nowhere and then just tells sales to find them. I think three sales people have hit their quota in the past few years. Most people figure out quick that if your "buddy buddy" with the executive staff you can totally slack off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the consultant and bring in some real sales management from the outside.

    Pros

    The environment is cool. It's laid back and chill and the people are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    It's so disorganized from a business standpoint. It's chaotic and everything is up in the air. There's no clear cut way of doing things and you feel like you're flying by the seat of your pants.

    Pros

    It has a start up culture, so you have an opportunity to work in many different areas and complete a variety of tasks and learn a lot, which is great for your career. Excellent work/life balance, pay and people that are really nice and smart. Fast paced and the level of passion of employees and customers make it one exciting place to work. Everyone seems to care about the product and company.

    Cons

    As we're growing direction changes too fast

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on current products and customers

    Pros

    I've been at NEOGOV for over a year, and this is definitely a great place to work for the entrepreneurial-type worker. You're given a lot of responsibility from day 1 and have the opportunity to make a large impact on an already successful organization. Everyone is extremely friendly and upper management has a constant eye out for ways to improve the company both internally and externally. The Costco-stocked fridge is nice, but it's great working for a company that tries to get its employees involved outside of the office with sports leagues, happy hours, and other company-sponsored events. Overall, I've been very satisfied with time here, and I'm definitely intrigued as to how the company will continue to grow with it's expansion into the private sector.

    Cons

    If you're the type of person who expects change to happen by itself, this probably isn't the company for you. NEOGOV rewards the doers and risk-takers of the working world, so if you want something done, bring it up to management and take it upon yourself to see it through completion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to recognize and reward your successful and hard-working employees with more growth opportunities in a more timely manner.

    Pros

    The company culture and work atmosphere here is great! There is a lot of flexibility and responsibility given to employees to get their work done independently. A lot of opportunity here for self starters - if you have an idea, you'll have the chance to execute.

    Cons

    If you enjoy autonomy, then this is a place to get it. If you like to be closely managed, then it's not the place for you.

    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchen, close to the beach, close to chipotle, friendly employees for the most part.

    Cons

    They write fake reviews of the company to hide how miserable it is. "Consultant" needs to go before the entire sales department quits. Zero value of employees, they make it clear that if you want to leave because you are unhappy, they will just replace you. I wonder how that's going? Almost an entire team has left the company within a two month period, and they are blind to the issue at hand. Get better management that will provide valuable training and culture in order to engage AND retain employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate what is going on WITHIN the company. Not everything is about closing a deal. You won't be closing any deals if there is no one left.

    I worked at NEOGOV full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Costco Delivery - after you start to see through the cloud of false promises, this is the only positive thing you have left to look forward to day in and day out.

    Cons

    I worked for this company for almost 3 years and kept telling myself things would get better. They take enthusiastic employees and exploit their efforts endlessly. The CEO is off in a dream world of where the company will be in 5 years but has no idea of the current state of the business. The president of the company is in the same boat selling products today that will not be available until that 5 year mark and considers 60 hours a week normal. Lastly, the consultant mentioned in many other reviews, is not only an obstacle to the company's growth and potential, his behavior is borderline uncomfortable.

    It is a SHAME how this company has done a complete 180 from success to what some may consider failure. The worst part is the employees that work tireless hours believing in something that the executive level is taking for granted. The company had real potential but as the years went by, the lack of management and attention to detail has created a pitfall. Not only is the professional community no longer considering NEOGOV as a competitor, but long standing customers have sensed their lack of responsibility and have predicted the downfall of the company. Just ask them for a solid customer reference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is non-existent. Quit disguising lack of accountability and integrity as "flat organizational structure". When employees AND customers are jumping ship at such a rapid pace, you would think addressing the issues should be a priority.
