I have been working at CROmetrics full-time
There aren't many 5 star companies out there. This is one. Read the reviews. At Cro Metrics you are listened to, in an uncommon way. You work with some of the most dedicated, creative, kick-ass pro's in the industry. The culture is the company's biggest asset.
You won't always be patted on the back and told how great you are. There is a culture of radical candor in place. But you'll always be treated fairly and with respect and be challenged to improve on a daily basis. And your accomplishments will be celebrated.
Depending on your geo location, comp may be on the soft side. Benefits are awesome though, as is the autonomy, the respect, and the career growth this company affords you. For me at least, it's not a close call.
Advice to Management
You have something special here. Keep it front and center even as the company grows.
I applied online. I interviewed at CROmetrics in August 2017.
Very unprofessional interview process. Before having a conversation I was asked to provide half a dozen ideas for how they could help a current client improve their website. I'm happy to provide examples, and talk through how I feel I can help a company, but I don't feel it is proper to ask a candidate to do work for free. When I expressed this to the hiring manager, the CEO responded with an insult. I would avoid working for this company. In a follow up email the CEO admitted he was attempting to troll and bully me.
