    I have been working at Nextag

    Pros

    At Nextag, I get to work with smart people on interesting problems. The upper management has changed recently, and the company has begun to make significant changes (both technical and cultural) in a short period of time.

    Cons

    The San Mateo location is pretty (up on the hill off 92), but dining options are somewhat limited. The company is growing quickly, and quality talent is hard to find these days. It can take a while to bring in new people, even when they're really needed. Also, I could use more vacation time, but that's probably true most places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be unafraid to change. Continue treating employees like adults. This isn't my first rodeo, and the role of corporate cheerleader doesn't come naturally to me, but I think this place could really be a rocket ship. For the first time in years, I'm actually excited about a big company.
