    Pros

    Great company to work for. The executive team knows what they're doing and care about their employees to lead them to success. I've never been happier being part of a successful company and able to see the growth. The office is great and the people are too! I definitely would recommend others working here.

    Cons

    We are growing way too fast!! Just need some work on the operations side.

    Pros

    Nice location close to food and coffee
    Updated offices

    Cons

    Lacks leadership
    Technology has too many parts and pieces to make it work well (cameras, sensors, POS, etc)
    Super slow on-boarding for customers. It takes us months to make a sale

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial, plenty of junk foods in the kitchen, paid parking, most workers are relatively nice

    Cons

    Too much politics, management at times make emotional decisions, unknowingly setting people up for failure just to save some money, ~ 30 people left the company in 2014.

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat your employees like sweat shop workers for your own personal gains.

    Pros

    Company was fast moving, had great people for the most part, and paid relatively well.

    Cons

    Defining a role for the Sales Engineering was never really clear. The understanding of the technology was also all over.

    Advice to Management

    Start defining roles, clean house with folks who are bottle necking the org and final start educating the organization properly

    Pros

    Unlimited Vacation, nice people (non-management), product concept, kitchen snacks, free lunch on Fridays...

    Cons

    No process, broken product, ridiculous politics, firings that go unannounced, no transparency, no vision, over worked employees that compensate for broken product, gossip culture, drunk culture, total inappropriateness around the office, absolutely no leadership and all customers are unhappy. There is not one happy customer which keeps everyone in firefighting mode.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourselves.

    Pros

    RetailNext has a strong team, it is innovator in its space, employees are encourage to grow and take more responsibility. Very exciting being at the forefront of the retail analytics market.

    Cons

    Things are definitely fast-moving and change is constant, typical of an early stage company. Need to ensure you are a fit for that environment. great for those that are!

    Advice to Management

    The company is evolving. Need to ensure there is a focus on managing the culture and careers for employees as growth continues.

    Pros

    - Everyone here at RetailNext is very collaborative, cross functional departments are willing to help each other in solving problems or giving insights.

    - Everyone here is very easy to approach if you need anything, even the C's are very friendly!

    - You will be immersed to all aspects of the company to have a feel of what our company is like, from operations to engineering to marketing to sales and more.

    - We are a startup; we get our hands on everything! Your skill set will expand for your future!

    - No cubicles! We love the open community collaboration tables.

    - We know how to have fun! We have employee events hosted twice a month to keep our fun level at a maximum!

    - Did I mention that we have a gym, located near the best restaurants, and have a pantry full of food?

    Cons

    - As a startup company, we always experience uncertainty (as most companies do). Our collaborative teams are always open for opinions and solutions in maximizing our efforts in fixing any forthcoming issues.

    Advice to Management

    - I wouldn't change anything!

    Pros

    +Still small, meaning you can have an impact
    +Good team spirit. If you get someone's attention, they will help you
    +Good investment. I really believe Retail Next is going to be successful in the long run and if you're looking to work at a hot startup that's going to look great on the resume, this is it

    Cons

    -Still small, if you think there's going to be a ton of documentation and guidance, think again
    -Can be political
    -Commute can be brutal if you live in SF

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Alexei is the hardest working guy I know.

    Pros

    Salaries are pretty good. Work life balance is ok (depending in what group you are in). There are some hard working people at this company.

    Cons

    This company has a lot of Immature and/or unprofessional people, and a lot of growing pains. There are many VPs with useless titles, too many high level managers with not enough experience. Leadership and/or direction can be very unclear at times. Business people making too many decisions and not enough technical people in Leadership positions. A lot of Technical debt.

    Also its funny there are a bunch of "Amazing" and "Wow" reviews all near the same time from Nov....

    Advice to Management

    Running too fast, not focused on longevity/stability.
