    Pros

    ThoughtLab rarely gets boring, as new projects are always on their way through the door. The culture is great, and the CEO listens to the employees.

    Cons

    Although collaborative, getting stuck can sometimes really put you behind, and there's not always someone to ask for help.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring smart people who are god culture fits, keep the energy up, and take time to enjoy a successfully completed project.

    Pros

    ThoughtLab hires the best. The team is stellar and the culture is fun and fast-paced.
    Lots of interesting, challenging projects. Given a lot of independence on projects.
    Team is collaborative and pulls together to get things done.
    Really cool clients with exceptional high retention over last few years.
    Growing quickly.

    Cons

    Need to be self-motivated and independent. If you don't like big challenges or you need someone to hold your hand you will feel out of place and lost.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to celebrate successes more often. It is too easy to do something awesome and then move onto the next project without taking a moment to pause as a company and celebrate what we have accomplished.

    Pros

    The environment is always improving. It's easy to stay cutting edge and use new technologies knowing your employer is supporting new tech. You aren't just a name on a paper you are part of the team and your voice is heard.

    Cons

    You need to be self motivated. You are expected to be able to hold your own and if you need someone to hold your hand, you will struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your employees for new ideas and keep improving the work environment. As long as the communication is great between the staff and clients things will be golden.

    Pros

    Great technical team and interest in new technology. Collaborative coworkers. Flexible work schedule (best thing). Great location downtown. The strength of work lies in the individual talents of the staff.

    Cons

    Management mostly hands off approach, and doesn't support the team throughout entire length of project (multiple examples of staff being thrown under the bus for management to save face at end of project). Clients often dissatisfied as projects conclude, almost no repeat work says something. High staff turnover is very disconcerting to clients. Minimal training, or advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need reviews, predictable payment increases, insurance payments on time.
    It should be a major focus to have very happy clients at end of projects.


  6. OK! But not an organized company.

    Pros

    Pros - strong technical team and other smart non-tech good people work here, we can pick and choose timing you come in.

    Cons

    Cons – Management is not so good, less salary, random people come at this place sometimes and started asking questions ends up in distraction, team members need to act like a receptionist, Outlook mail is 16th century old work only around 0.05 mile radius.
    as usual like any other cmny's any time you can expect layoff when there is no work.

    company policies are not clear cut.

    Advice to Management

    ----- still reading my post? as you are going to change something...
