    Pros

    --Growing market segment
    --Strong sales culture
    --Technology-focused startup in what can otherwise be a backwards-looking vertical market
    --Smart, talented co-workers, overall

    Cons

    --Disorganized management structure
    --Limited resources for developing the business
    --Focussed so significantly on sales volume that fulfillment took a necessary backseat

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    --Tighten the loop between the sample development and sales to facilitate panel growth
    --Improve programs for traffic/sample partners so that compensation at least matches the industry standard
    --Compete on the basis of quality, rather than price

    Growing PAINS. A company with an identity crisis. Thinks it's a startup, runs like a old school corporation.

    Pros

    Young, smart worker bees. In general, uSamp hires good people.

    Cons

    Business decisions seem mainly ego driven. Zero loyalty to employees. People are "disappeared,"--- there one day, gone the next. Founders run the place like their former fraternity-if you're in the inner circle the perks are great. Otherwise, there is superficial lip service to being a fun culture, but micromanaging is the exception rather than the rule. If you're not a drinker, you're probably not a fit for the culture since that's all that goes on outside of the office. No ongoing Philanthropic projects for employees. No one gets too close...why bother when your team mate might be gone tomorrow with no explanation. Board hasn't been happy with leadership for a while, made changes with more to come is rumor. Overall, not a place to stay...get in and get out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency can't just be a buzzword. People aren't disposable. Focus. Figure out who you want to be. Be better people. No one wants to work for jerks.

    I have been working at uSamp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company itself has a relaxed culture and a majority of people I work with are driven to succeed. The company is full of good ideas and are willing to expand on these, moving quickly to beat out the competition.

    Cons

    Long hours, often driven by our sales team selling projects that are last minute or rush, leaving the operations team to deal with unrealistic expectations. Work loads are often unbalanced, leaving to long hours.

    I have been working at uSamp

    Pros

    Very good work culture, strong middle management and top management, and a very aggressive company.

    Cons

    Work life balance might go for a toss at the beginning, the organization is very demanding. However the organizations gives a lot of perks to compensate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going the way you are. Its difficult to grow at the pace at which usamp is growing, and even more difficult to sustain the growth. All it takes is a series of "right things to do" to turn this into a world class organization.
