SparkFun Electronics is an amazing place to work.

I have been working at SparkFun

ProsEveryone is open and respectful with each other. No politics. The CEO eats lunch right next to the new guy from Kitting or Shipping, and they have great conversations. It's a real community feeling to work at SparkFun, everyone is giving extra effort to make the company succeed. And it is succeeding!

ConsPay is on the poor to average side--the many perks of working here are NOT monetary. SparkFun's fast growth rate means that there are always some growing pains. Procedures could be more clearly defined in some jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, although bumping up salaries a little bit certainly wouldn't hurt your employees! You've built a great group of people, make sure to keep them around.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
