    I have been working at Prezi

    Pros

    I was not offered a job but staff were very quick to respond.

    Cons

    San Francisco office is very American, ie clique-y and snobbish. I was hoping for a more European atmosphere, which is why I applied there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO should be more involved in selection of candidates in order to ensure a good cultural
    fit. Otherwise it's just another SF startup with driven but very provincial and narrowly focused staff.

    Pros

    Fun, supportive culture. They are willing to help train you if you wish to learn more or want to get a broader view of the company. Lots of company events too.

    Cons

    There was sometimes a tendency to be cliquish and exclusionary of some people. I remember when a potential hire came on and she was mocked behind her back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The thing about monkeys, Joan of Arc, and Jean-Luc Picard in the value statements is just weird.

    Pros

    The colorful company culture
    Get it done attitude
    Goal driven company
    You can have dreams and Prezi will help you to make it happen (fellowship program, paid conferences, ..., dream dinner with the CEO)

    Cons

    There is way too much freedom (no working hours policy, non tracking holidays, ...) - you have to manage it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really like that how the CEO, CTO and all other executives are just as regular employes as me. Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Prezi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined Prezi as an engineer and I'm still in the engineering team, my observations and experiences primarily apply for them.

    There's clear career path for engineers, there's plenty of space to grow and explore. Company value willingness to grow and being team player more than pure hard skills. If you are someone who's happy to discover new technologies, not afraid learning a new programming language tomorrow and excited about solving technology challenges, Prezi is a great option for you.

    People work in small, usually cross-functional teams at Prezi. Even with over 200 employees, this setup has not changed since the early days. We think of these teams as startups inside the startup. They have all the power to do everything to achieve their goals.

    We hire adults and treat employees as adults. So there's no work hours, noone tracks your holidays, basically the company provides you everything to be able work in a great environment. In exchange though, they set high expectations to you. Prezi would like to be in the same legau as Facebook or Twitter, therefore the expectations should be the same high.

    Company values are great and actively used in conversations, decision makings.

    Cons

    If you're looking for a 9-17 job, Prezi is not for you. Work is measured by results and not the time spent in the office. The company also expects from everyone to constantly grow and be responsible for their career development which might concern some people.

    Great challenges, team and culture

    I have been working at Prezi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    We constantly get new, bigger and bigger challenges, we get a lot of freedom and basically the company tries to support anyone in whatever way they can. The hiring process is very thorough, we hire only the best, so the team is great. Culture is strong and awesome. You get a chance at changing the world. Everyone is expected (and supported) to grow, you can become the best engineer in the world. We do all the usual things, like continuous deployment, full ownership (we don't have an ops team), lot of monitoring and working with data. The company is growing fast, so everyone has a realistic chance of advancing fast in their careers, we constantly have open positions for techleads and managers.

    Cons

    Prezi is only for people who want to grow and like challenges, so it's not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love working here, carry on with what you are doing. :)

    I have been working at Prezi full-time

    Pros

    1- Challenging and startup culture spirit within.
    2- Almost flat organization structure levels , and when you have ideas you share it freely.
    3- A very nice office in Budapest , and you'll love to work at it.
    4- They are always up to date , and try to see what's new in technologies to dive in!
    5- They provide fellowships and good conferences.
    6- Very fixable hours and you go whenever you want , and leave whenever you want (I bet you'll!!)

    Cons

    - Salaries are not that high comparing to US.
    - The benefit package isn't that wow as I expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the flat organization structure going, and always keep in mind the Engineering culture and its care are very essential!
