    I have been working at Uptake (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility given to every employee—a very "GSD" mentality. A great business idea and model. As an employee who does a lot of market research, it's clear that Uptake's products and services are far beyond what other companies are trying to do. Uptake really did create this space.

    Cons

    Like any startup company, Uptake is trying to find its way—which can make for a bumpy ride, at times. (It's also part of the fun!) Luckily, it has a strong leadership team charting the path forward.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows and matures, I think it will be really important that we preserve the GREAT start-up culture that got us here to begin with!
