    I have been working at Singularity University full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company mission, surrounded by high performing individuals in an educational environment. Next few years have a lot of potential.

    Cons

    Entrepreneurial company culture means you must be a self starter adn define your own work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The vision for the mission is strong, but establishing a unified way to get there is hugely necessary.

    Pros

    Great place for networking with international and high level executives from an array of industry backgrounds (if working with the right department). People are generally friendly and hard working. Open to telecommuting when needed.

    Cons

    Company lacks processes, procedures, and communication (in some departments) to get your job completed timely and effectively. High work load, not enough hours or team support to get tasks done. A few people with ill-disposed personality's that affect the office environment or have no clue how to do their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees and implement firm processes and procedures that don't need input from everyone in the company. Hire people that are more astute, experienced and have positive attitudes.

    Pros

    Great for networking. Really interesting people and things going on if you are exposed to the programs/events.

    Cons

    Completely no idea where they are at concerning who they are as a company. They treat the hardest working people the worst, and the most useless people make the most money. They have no clue of how to manage the finances, and this is always creating problems that ultimately fall on the employees. The management is always doing a lot to make you feel like they care, but ultimately it is obvious that they don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk. if you care about your people then show it genuinely, otherwise, just be real about the fact that this is just a business and you are just a cog in the machine.
