I have been working at Oneupweb full-time (Less than a year)
Beautiful, airy, plant-filled office at the Grand Traverse Commons. Flexible schedule. Opportunity to work remote. The CEO goes out of his way to make Oneupweb a fun work environment and he's eager for employees to embrace their unique skillsets. I honestly look forward to going to work throughout the week. Every member of the staff is talented, stylish, and friendly. Somewhat uniquely among tech companies, at Oneupweb the male/female ratio is 1:1. I am learning a ton of new skills here and I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a new job.
My salary is a bit lower than I would like (although fair) but it is a tradeoff I'm willing to make given all of the new skills I'm learning and the aforementioned great work environment.
Advice to Management
I wouldn't change a thing about the management. This is the first job I've ever had where I would say that. Keep doing what you're doing!
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oneupweb.
I saw this listing while looking locally for design-related work, and since I had worked in Chicago as a designer and had years of print- & web-design projects under my belt, I figured it couldn't be that hard to get into a small company in Traverse City. I mean, how fierce could the competition be?
I was wrong.
Oneupweb gives off this "elitist" and "snobby" feeling, despite it being in a rather rural part of Michigan. Yeah, Traverse City is nice, but that doesn't mean it's some tech industry Mecca. In fact, Oneupweb's focus on only wanting the best of the best seems ridiculously unrealistic, given its location. If they were in Grand Rapids, it'd be another story.
When I reached out to Oneupweb I wasn't aware of these negative reviews, otherwise I wouldn't have even applied. After they looked at my portfolio and I went to their office (which was nice inside from what I saw, but nothing fancier than a typical design focused company's environment), they let me know via mail a couple weeks later that I wasn't what they wanted. At least they did let me know, so they weren't the worst.
It was a waste of time overall though, and I wish I knew about the company's reputation before I even sent a résumé their way.
