I worked at Autobytel full-time (More than a year)
Team was focused and would listen to ideas to improve technology. Actually had a competent (awesome!) WEB designer that could work with the developers to get something that looked great. They also kept revising and really cared about their work. Free breakfast on Fridays Boss was awesome. If I ever become a boss, I'd be like him. Told you what needed to be accomplished, and got out of the way. Worked out any disagreements to the satisfaction of everyone. He also acted as a great wall between the dev team and the upper level management, exactly as it should be.
No growth path past being a senior developer. There's no lead here, more of a flat structure. Having no lead was interesting, not sure if it was a pro or con but being a bit of a alpha developer myself would have discussions with other "architects" on how to build stuff. The once a day meetings got really boring fast. Especially when I was working on a multi-week project that related to no one else. I'd kind of zone out.
Advice to Management
Never really talked with them. Maybe have breakfast more often, certainly brightened up the mornings.
