    Pros

    There are tons of pros. Broadly stated, social and data are two of the hottest industries on their own, so it's energizing to come to work at a place that brings the two together. Add the fact that the product is truly differentiated in a crowded market and it's hard not to be excited about the things that are ahead.

    The office, work environment and employees are all phenomenal. Employees have autonomy and the successful ones can chart their own growth path within the organization.

    The management team shows strength by making hard decisions before they need to. This kind of foresight is often lacking at a startup/growth company and it's something that shouldn't be taken for granted!

    Cons

    Like any company there are some pains associated with growth, including executive turnover and lots of changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep thinking big! Progress has been made to make compensation packages more competitive but still room for improvement.

    I worked at Simply Measured full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Simply Measured was a great chance to try new things and grow. For self-starters, there are many opportunities to take on projects and experiment. For those who can self-advocate, there are many opportunities for advancement. Simply Measured has above-average base pay and excellent health care benefits. There are also additional perks, like transportation, food in the kitchen, views of Elliott Bay, a kegerator, and a very real putting green in the office. Simply Measured has company values that leadership strives to live by. I cannot stress how smart and passionate all of the employees are at Simply Measured, and combining this with a fast-paced environment (think Tableau), you will get far more experience in 1 year than you would at any other similarly-sized company.

    Cons

    Simply Measured has grown very fast and there are growing pains associated with this-- it's a wild start-up in a medium-size company's body that is looking to go big. That's a lot of changes to account for.

    I want to note that I would not recommend this place of work to a friend at this time, particularly for the role I was in. However, I do hope to see this return to an environment which is good for most any amazing employee to succeed in and enjoy. Currently, below is what I would consider cons regarding working for Simply Measured:

    There is a lot of distraction and stress in this environment at times, and leadership could provide more clarity and professionalism to individual contributors. There continues to be confusion around roles and responsibilities, and I have seen employees be set up to fail in this environment, even those who have a lot of potential. Training for new hires is present in some portions of the org, and completely non-existent in others. I also found that the work-life balance at Simply Measured is very not aligned with my personal style (even as someone who genuinely likes to work), and after some reflection I attribute much of this to the disorganization and lack of clear communication among teams and the leadership. I currently do not see this company living by their values, but I know the intention is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make clear lines of decision-making, and provide employees with the environment and tools they need to succeed. Do not cut corners when it comes to investing in people. Listen to and trust the people you hire, regardless of their place on the org chart.

    Pros

    My coworkers are the smartest, most driven, most fun-loving people I've ever worked with. They make me excited to walk into the office every day.

    The office environment is a weird combination of relaxed and intense. It's hard to describe, but it's an environment that really facilitates me doing me best work. There's just kind of a special feeling in the air.

    The market opportunity we're tackling is a big, exciting, challenging one. We all recognize it, and it's part of what drives us. It's very fun to be on the cutting edge of our space.

    Cons

    The breakneck growth the company has experienced has come with its own set of challenges. Everything from our processes to our infrastructure to our culture to our physical office has to scale. There are always some growing pains that come along with the insane growth we've experienced. But I consider this a good problem to have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being accountable and transparent. The people here really look up to Simple Measured's leadership, with good reason.

    Pros

    Choose your own adventure! It's a quickly growing company jam-packed with the sharpest tools in the shed, so opportunities are available in every nook and cranny. It's challenging, but you have the potential to make a real difference in not only the company, but the industry.

    Bonus: everyone genuinely likes each other. Everyone in the office is so happy and aligned with the company vision that it sometimes feels like you're stepping outside of rainy Seattle and into an alternate reality.

    Cons

    Too many openings, not enough qualified candidates!

    In all seriousness, there aren't a lot of cons. The company does an amazing job of identifying problems and working to resolve them quickly and effectively. The leadership is outstanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to our values (with the potential addition of #winning?) and keep hiring folks that share them. A company growing this quickly is bound to encounter some growing pains, but keeping these at top of mind will ensure we continue on the path to success.

    I have been working at Simply Measured

    Pros

    I don't even know where to start. I love going to work every day! It's a great group of people who work hard because they're passionate, and play hard because they enjoy being around each other. I feel challenged and I love that effective processes have been put into place that allow my voice to be heard. My supervisors are great mentors and I learn so much through working with them. I feel well compensated and we have great office perks. Our founders and leadership are incredibly accessible and approachable.

    Cons

    There is not much to report. Standard growing pains that you would expect from a start up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping to the company values.

    Pros

    The people here are amazing - from the longest-tenured to the newest addition. We have a ton of different roles here, but everyone loves their particulate role and you can see that in how they attack work every day. I think it says a lot when you see people not just working together, but having fun and actually relating - and that's what happens here.

    Everyone has a good idea of how what they do here makes the company a better place and makes our clients love the product/company. That's something that definitely sets Simply Measured apart from other companies - a direct line between what each individual does and the success of the company.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say there are any cons here, but i'm sure others may have areas they might want to see improved. We have an open communication plan that helps people share their frustrations and suggestions for solving them.
