I worked at Sumo.com full-time (More than a year)
Sumo is a place of hard work and fun. Everyone treats you like you are family and if you ever need anything, you can't face a direction without there being someone there to happily help.
The perks are AWESOME. Dog friendly (who doesn't love dogs?), great lunches catered daily, team lunch outings once a week, retreats each year (we went to Banff, Alberta, Canada this year), flexible hours, and a bunch of other things.
Oh and champagne.
Sometimes I think people forget that there is more to life than working. I wish more people would take the time off they deserve and recharge. The leads at Sumo 100% promote this practice because they know how important it is.
Is that even a con? That everyone works so hard and is committed??
Advice to Management
Chad, the CEO, is an awesome leader. Keep doing what you're doing.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sumo.com (Austin, TX).
I completed a challenge involving skills based tasks and did a set of interviews with 4 members of the Sumo team. Sam, Sumo's Head of People managed everything brilliantly and was available to answer any questions I had throughout the process.
