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

    Pros

    A lot of people mention that there is a high tolerance for incompetence at PL, and that's true. Sometimes they take too long to give warning to someone. However, if you are a self-started and push yourself to excel, they'll really take notice. Lots of room to grow at this company, with plenty of opportunities for promotion and raises IF you take it upon yourself to figure out where PL really needs your skills.

    Cons

    Again, the tolerance for incompetence. It's too easy to take advantage of the fact that the management isn't structured enough, very few people have a real "boss" that holds them accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you long for the old startup days when everyone pushed themselves and management was fairly unstructured, but that's over now. Appoint managers who have the actual time and resources to hold their direct reports accountable....and then hold the managers accountable.

    Pros

    Small company, you get to know everyone quickly
    Good rapport within the office
    Very transparent, weekly office catch-up meeting

    Cons

    No transparency with regards to job requirement. Unreasonable expectations such as 12 hour days and working weekends ( all without extra pay) that were not mentioned before employment.

    Company and management has lack of respect for employees Company offers low salary compared to market . There is close to no designation advancement .

    I have been working at Peanut Labs

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, good place to learn new skills. Awesome parties and cruises. Intelligent management staff. Good location. Smart tech staff.

    Cons

    Extreme tolerance for employee incompetence. An employee could be dead at his desk for a month before he is issued his first of ten warnings.
