Part 1 of 5 We’d like to provide some transparency and perspective to the reviews you may be seeing on our Glassdoor page. In 2018 we made significant investments and launched several projects in preparation for growth. We built and launched game changing home security and automation products, we prepared to launch our first retail stores, and our e-commerce platform saw huge expansion. All the while, we continued to grow our customer base for the eleventh consecutive year since opening our doors, and as always—we delivered on our mission to provide safety and security to families all across the world. And even after all that, for the first time ever, we’re opening a new office and expanding from our headquarters in Virginia to the west coast. However, there were some growing pains for us. Every company moves into different phases as it grows and matures. Early days in startups are known to be fun, bootstrapped time periods where there’s abundant green space and passion driven decisions. At Frontpoint, we’re moving into what you might call our ‘teenage years’:

Part 2 of 5 - We’ve dedicated ourselves to creating some structure that will allow us to scale and do so more predictably while remaining flexible and agile - We still have the space to live in more of an ambiguous world in which to innovate but with guardrails and plans to support that innovation - We’re maintaining balance to ensure we remain true to our values and entrepreneurial spirit without getting in our own way This all allows for us to have a ‘start up-like’ culture with the flexibility and agility to be innovative, drive solutions, and change for the benefit of our customers. All that being said—Yes. We had to make some tough decisions at the beginning of the year. There were a few strategic initiatives that we slowed down to ensure a more meticulous launch and we did have to part ways with some fantastic members of the corporate team. It was very difficult to lose talented people. That difficulty would become a complete and utter loss if we didn’t let it affect us and learn from it. So, what did we learn?

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Horrible. Unprofessional. Worst experience in my career. A developer who is also a contractor interviews a Senior Manager. No interview expense was paid for onsite interview. They were not prepared. They didn't know what they were doing.
