I worked at SCVNGR full-time (Less than a year)
Great people, great team, very fun every day. People are engaged and the CEO is great and very accessible. The company likes to innovate and is willing to listen to anybody and their ideas. Plus lunches are free!
Dysfunctional teams from time to time, lots of shuffling around. From time to time there seems to be poor direction, especially for sales team.
Advice to Management
SCVNGR/LevelUp needs a clear mission. As of now, one founder seems to be looking to build a real company, while the other wants a quick pay day exit. Once on the same page, maybe the day to day mission will make more sense.
I applied online. I interviewed at SCVNGR.
Only got as far as a phone interview. Everything seemed very positive until near the end. I said something that hinted at the fact that job stability is important to me and things went south. I know that most people at this company are in their 20s, but shouldn't young people still also be allowed to want a stable job? (I never implied that it was not a stable company.)
