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

    Fun environment with good work life balance. If you like music, this is a great place to work.

    Doors closed due to combination of factors, including poor management at the executive level.

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

    Pros

    Met many great people there.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Go out of business... oh that's right... you did!

    Pros

    Cool product.
    Passionate people.
    Office in great downtown location.
    Overall eCast is a great place to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Lack of stable company direction and focus.
    Management gets caught up in the next "it" thing.

    I worked at eCast

    Pros

    Casual 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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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