    I have been working at AWeber full-time

    Pros

    -Lots of opportunities to explore passions (even those outside of your official job description). Even though I'm not on the product team, I can go to the Director of Product or any of our Product Managers to give feedback/ feature suggestions and I genuinely feel as though my opinion matters. -The people! We have amazing coworkers who are extremely talented and passionate about what they do. As someone who is early...

    Cons

    I've thought about this a lot recently. If I was asked about any cons a year ago, I probably could have thought of one or two, but I think AWeber has developed and improved (from a product/ process sense) greatly over the past year so I can't think of any cons at the moment. I will say, our environment is highly collaborative. You are expected to have opinions, voice those opinions, and continue to develop your expertise....

    Thanks so much for the feedback! Team member feedback is a huge deal to us, and we strive to make AWeber the best environment possible with that feedback.

    I have been working at AWeber full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    After working at AWeber for a few year, I left the company to pursue another career opportunity, in hopes of advancing in my career. That opportunity didn't turn out as expected, and I was fortunate enough to return to AWeber - and I'm so glad I did! Since returning, AWeber was named best tech culture in Philadelphia, and ranked in the top 10 best places to work in Pennsylvania back to back. It's truly a remarkable place...

    Cons

    Working at AWeber is not for everyone. It's a fast-paced environment with high expectations. But that's what I love about it. It really challenges you to push yourself and achieve great things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Keep pushing. Keep holding the team accountable. Keep emphasizing our core values.

    I have been working at AWeber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Since joining here at AWeber, I have been welcomed with nothing but open arms. With all of the support I received from my manager and colleagues, I have been able to hit the ground running and get right into a normal day to day. The training period you're given during your first 1-2 weeks was also extremely helpful in learning the product inside and out. The biggest pro for me is the work-life balance. This was something...

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons other than the maternity/paternity leave policy. I know that management is working on this though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees! The feedback you've implemented has seemingly made this place even better, so the AWeber process is working.

    I have been working at AWeber full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    This office feels like home to me, so coming to work is always easy. I'm friends with almost all of my teammates, which makes every meeting feel like a little party. I know that sounds like an exaggeration, but it's true about 90% of the time. The flexibility here is inviting and the atmosphere is comfortable. I'm encouraged to be myself, try my best, and support my team. I really love working here.

    Cons

    I would not advise someone to work at AWeber if they had high hopes of moving up in the company over a short span of time. This is a place where every position is valued. Promotions happen, but not necessarily as quickly as they would in a company with a different attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage your team with supporting their work/life balance, and keep on having open conversations even if they aren't easy.

    I worked at AWeber full-time

    Pros

    It was a great environment to learn and grow. Team members were always positive and wiling to work across departments to solve problems. You can't beat the perks they offer like the free lunch

    Cons

    Seemed like the product itself was behind the rest of the industry at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good people and pushing them to perform at a high level.

    I have been working at AWeber full-time

    Pros

    Having worked for AWeber for several years, I absolutely love where this company is right now. I love what we've learned. I love how we handled adversity. I love where we're headed. There was a period where the product, and company as a whole, was not innovating to the level that they desired. It took some time, but the company has really found it's groove. They're releasing new, exciting, and engaging features for...

    Cons

    There are several opportunities for team member growth and development that the company provides; however, some of those opportunities, like dedicated leadership training, are not available all year round due to scheduling and/or team member availability. Where I understand why this occurs, it'd be awesome to have more frequent leadership training opportunities that occur throughout each year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and actively having conversations with them about what they believe could help improve AWeber.

    Pros

    The people, the people and the people. The team is what makes this place truly awesome and it's a pleasure working with such bright and passionate people every single day. Don't get me wrong there are a lot of perks working at AWeber but for me it's about the people.

    Cons

    AWeber is not for everyone. No specific cons however it's a fast paced technology company that is not right for everyone. If you're thinking about joining this team bring your "A" game but ask a lot of questions to make sure your preferred pace is a good match.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on creating remarkable experiences for the team and our customers.

    I worked at AWeber full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. The building is really cool, but the slides are mostly for show. Some good people work here.

    Cons

    Two of AWeber's supposed core beliefs are to foster respect and welcome feedback. Both are bogus. You can ask or say anything you believe, but it can and will be used against you. And respect is definitely selective. Management frequently belittles and demeans people in subordinate positions. They have a vindictive streak you need to watch out for.

    Advice to Management

    Either change your core beliefs or abide by them. Actually treat people like they matter.

    I worked at AWeber full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    -You will not find a more inclusive environment and incredible people who want to help you grow. -Fast paced work-environment which helps make the days go fast and you're always learning something new. -You can talk about the free lunches all day but the real benefit is getting the chance to socialize with team members in other departments. If you take advantage of that opportunity consistently, you'll learn from...

    Cons

    -At the time I left, we were behind the competitive bell-curve and there was a struggle with product's direction to fill the needs of our clients. From what I've saw in Q4 of 2017, the product looks to be on the right track. 2018 will be a key year to see if that continues. -CEO is a visionary and is clear with direction. However when he starts getting his hands into the day to day, his personality is abrasive....

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on developing team members from within. This was/is the best way to develop a strong core of client and company advocates. Keep developing tools that clients want and prioritizing bugs to lower customer pain. Get leaders hired so that the CEO can stay focused on the 30,000 foot view and not in the day to day. His passion tends to overwhelm his communication and causes = harm and burnout from the team.

    I have been working at AWeber full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    First off....many of the negative reviews (especially the recent ones) are, for the most part, inherently false. - HR does not push team members to lie or only post positive reviews, but to speak openly and honestly (just as our core ideals promote) - Our "Chief People Officer" is one of the most caring people I have ever met in the workforce. She truly cares about everyone at this company and bends over backwards to...

    Cons

    While his intentions are good and he has a deep love of this company, the owner/founder/CEO actively holds back a lot of the teams by having his hands in too many parts of the organization. Due to the need to backfill some roles, he is stepping in as product manager for 3 teams. While in that role he does not foster the same sense of cooperation that other teams have. It is more of a 'my way or the highway' approach....

    Advice to Management

    Get the CEO out of the day to day operations and allow him to function only as a CEO. Avoid allowing him to impact the culture and process being established.
