It was a great place to work, until the doors shut.

Excellent place to work if you want to meet other smart, badly treated employees!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at eCast full-time for more than a year

ProsMet many great people there.

ConsManagement was terrible... obstinate and managing events in which they were either unfamiliar or simply arrogantly overstepping their capabilities. Women and minorities were definitely treated like second-class citizens at all levels of the corporate structure.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo out of business... oh that's right... you did!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Little growth potential

Engineer (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at eCast

ProsCasual work environment, smart software engineers, some good managers in mid-level range, easy access to public transportation, low stress levels, free coffee sodas and snacks

ConsLittle room for advancement, little room for personal or professional growth, stagnate work environment, little development on the horizon, not much future optimism

Advice to Senior ManagementMove back to the agile work environment, get away from the structure of "documentation first" and get back to the creative "results oriented first" mentality

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
