    Pros

    Free food, awesome events, great coworkers

    Cons

    There's a downside? OK open Environment can gēt distracting.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with better product ideas. See if they are market worthy before spending a whole lot of time developing.

    Pros

    Genuine and friendly team members Flexible hours (depending on your team) Open door policy (communication is easy) Flat company structure - no hierarchy really Management is engaged and hands-on with teams Great benefits and corporate perks (i.e. food program, fun social events, wellness program)

    Cons

    Very quiet work environment - could be more lively at times (but peace and quiet are appreciated as well)

    Advice to Management

    Stay in tune with your team members, continue to be accessible and transparent

    Pros

    Even though I work alone in London UK, airG management trusts me to work independently without daily oversight Meeting performance targets means big payouts and bonuses Work with international phone companies and building my business network globally

    Cons

    There are only 20 or so of us working outside the main office Communication with HQ is challenging (different time zones) At times I don't talk to my manager for 3 weeks - he's managing too many people or is too busy

    Advice to Management

    Hire more line and middle managers for external employees Not everyone can 'self manage' or 'self motivate' as Fred calls it

    Pros

    It's hard to believe that I started here over 8 years ago.. this company has grown a lot in that time. Sometimes things were challenging, but generally my experience has been very positive.

    Cons

    Not everything the company has tried to build has worked. Then again that's not really a big surprise...

    Advice to Management

    Review salaries twice a year instead of once per year.

    Pros

    Really smart co-workers Big ambitious projects Free cereal and fruit for breakfast Low politics environment

    Cons

    Company has a LOT going on - need to trim some of the projects My project manager is great, but I've heard some of the others are not so great Slim on middle management, makes it tough for those of us who need a 'boost' during slow times

    Advice to Management

    Increase the role and number of middle managers

    Pros

    Free breakfast Great people Interesting projects Great project managers Great bonuses (TIPS) every 4 months

    Cons

    Some parts of technology platform are 'old' Business has had some customers since 2001, and the software still needs support Timelines sometimes VERY short - "Happy Friday - Get this done by Monday, customer needs it!" Otherwise my experience has been very good so far....

    Advice to Management

    Try to avoid getting tech team into 'last minute work' situations Otherwise keep up the good work
