    Pros

    Great place to learn a lot and awesome people to work with.
    A small company means a lot more opportunity.
    Innovative group with lots of people willing to help and mentor others.

    Cons

    Constantly changing environment. Job stability is often a big question mark. Leadership is lacking higher up, and down the line there is a lot of pressure which in turn leads to lots of micromanagement.

    I worked at TrialPay full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really great group of people for the most part. Work environment is pretty flexible regarding hours and working remotely. Lots of company perks and they kept me well-fed. Depending on the project, the work can be interesting.

    Cons

    Depending on your role, base salary is not competitive, bonus structure is not consistent, and career development is uneven. Overall mission was ambiguous, but it seemed like management was working to solidify that.

    Pros

    There are some very bright and dedicated people working besides you. It's a very fun and social environment. Has decent perks.

    Cons

    Lacks leadership and growth opportunities after the first year or so. Health benefits is somewhat lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees and incentive them better.

    Pros

    Great people. Some of the best I've had the pleasure of working with. Super flexible. Allowed me to be a great mom and great employee simultaneously.

    Cons

    Leadership over the past 18 months has been lacking. It has a reputation for being a boys club and while I disagree to some extent, I look at the board and the exec team and it is all men.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in the habit of recognizing great work. In the last two years, I cannot think of one time someone told me "nice work." I don't get much out of that type of recognition, but others do! Get rid of folks at the top who have been ineffective. No reason to keep them around. Sometimes, the best thing you can do to get your energy back is to clean house. Sad, but true!! I'm not talking about cleaning house at the lower levels. I'm talking senior executives.

    Pros

    Young and fun company making a real impact in the social media space. Lots of freedom to define your own job. Very smart people who come from great universities. Challenging, yet rewarding, work. Super positive energy in the company. Rewards risk-taking.

    Cons

    Very fast-paced. Sometimes long hours. Since it is still in start-up mode, it is not always clear what the direction is, but it is still always forward.

    Great experience, ridiculously smart people

    I have been working at TrialPay

    Pros

    The team here is super smart, and we have thoroughly beaten our competition by building better products and with better strategy. Motivated people can really get stuff done and WILL be rewarded (I've been promoted several times). Just a fun place to work and have an outsize impact.

    Cons

    It's a startup so you're not going to find the same kind of "structure" as at a bigger company like Google, nor are you going to find the same benefits (boo hoo, no on-site massage) because the company doesn't make $10B in profit per year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tolerate bottom performers. 90% of the team is outstanding, tired of hearing the bottom 10% complain about not being recognized!

    Pros

    Smart team, good management and a clean and professional environment make TrialPay an ideal place to work and enjoy your life.

    Cons

    They don't concentrate too much on architecture as they need to rapidly move product. This is fine, but it doesn't give you much chance to explore and grow technically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what your employees enjoy doing most, see if you can have them do that most of the time and hire people for the roles they left open.
