    I have been working at Spigit full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A product that, if properly managed, could hit a real pain point. A few really bright stars.

    Cons

    Incredibly fractured culture, incredibly political, myopic, and cheap with salaries while wasteful on expenses. Strong 'friend of the CEO' culture.

    I worked at Spigit

    Pros

    Idea management is a relatively hot space, they have some famous customers

    Cons

    Management has poor strategy, and they are always chasing their tails. Lots of politics and few real decisions being made. Investors have walked away, but the company spends money like they have deep pockets. It feels like a shell game and is not sustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut team and costs to focus on core

    Pros

    The team is amazing. Very talented and innovative. It is a lot of fun to work here.

    Cons

    A lot of drag is caused by legacy code, which makes it not so fun to do your job as it could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes I am not sure whether to be optimistic or not about this company, but I am curious to see where it will go.

    I have been working at Spigit full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The new corporate offices are great and allow the corporate staff to share a common space. Collaboration has improved greatly and the energy in the building reminds me of why I chose to leave Cisco and come to young company in an emerging market. Lots of room for career advancement.

    Cons

    The recent org changes have already begun improving the issues around proper communication between teams, but that can always get better. In the past, too much energy was focused on ancillary concerns and development on the core business stalled. More equity would be nice as well.
