    I worked at Yottamark full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to dive into new applications of existing technology.
    SF Bay area location, near many tech industry partners.

    Cons

    Departments at odds with each other, fractious politics, siloed information.
    Located in expensive corporate 'nowheresville', far from interesting parts of SF Bay, ten miles from nearest BART station.

    I have been working at Yottamark full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The office is new and close to Caltrain. It is a job. Casual dress code. Food is ordered once a week.

    Cons

    Employee retention is extremely low. Middle management does a terrible job of communicating to their team and seems to be more interested in bad politics and blame for failure. Some of the things I witnessed while working here I had never experienced before. They do not pay anything close to competitive rates to anyone below manager or director. People all seem to be in crisis mode and insist on working harder not smarter. The agreement you sign to work will eliminate your ability to effectively to legally have any recourse should things go wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a course in ethics. Communicate your goals and provide some type of metric or performance review to your staff so that they are clear on their duties. Do some research and pay people appropriately. Some people are compensated way too much for their role while others are paid a fraction of what their peers make elsewhere.
