    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Monica, CA

    I worked at docstoc full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Attractive (and massive) market opportunity, culture designed to constantly challenge convention and think about what's next (not what's now), open door policy with employees about company direction and financials, honest founders, fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    SMBs are a moving target. Can never relax about meeting their current and future demands/needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue managing with transparency, especially about company vision and goals. Never be satisfied.

    I worked at docstoc full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    One of the most productive and efficient teams I've ever worked with. Great product, lots of traction, and solving real problems/needs.

    Great place to learn, grow and work on something that is meaningful and impactful. If you take ownership and show that you have what it takes to lead, you can run with projects without much red tape.

    Fosters growth and team work and everyone's input is respected.

    Cons

    There was always more we wanted to do than our resources allowed, but I'm not sure if that's necessarily a bad thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and make sure to keep hiring top talent!

    Promote within more, you have a great team.

    This is why you don't judge a book by it's cover

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Monica, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Monica, CA

    I worked at docstoc

    Pros

    Lots of perks to keep you happy most of the times

    Cons

    Work you to death, everyone works a minimum of 10 hours a day and you constantly feel like you are watched or criticized and eventually you get burned out or fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it about the employees and not about yourselves. Listen and not brush it off.
