    I have been working at Avangate full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Talented and smart team, good working culture, progressive and experienced management team make it a great place to work. Has the start up agility with the opportunity to work across the globe. The team members are in the US and Bucharest mainly and there is good communication and understanding across borders.

    Cons

    Fast pace and lots of activity all the time!

    Pros

    Avangate is a fast-paced, great place to work. The people there are energetic, smart, and work hard to provide great services to their customer.

    Pros

    Cons

    Cultural Divide Between Romanian and US Offices
    HR is in Romania
    No Equity / Stock Options
    No 401K Match

    Advice to Management

    New CEO, Alex Hart, is promising. Marketing for North America SHOULD NOT be driven from Romania. Product Development should be driven by customer/sales input and held accountable to road map deadlines. Some of the Marketing and Product Development management team in the Romania office are senior, but are not up to the challenge of getting Avangate to the next level. Need new talent and leadership in these roles.

    I have been working at Avangate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Company in a hot market - the intersection of digital transformation and the reinvention of commerce.
    - Company has successfully grown quarter on quarter since it's founding 8+ years ago and knows how to execute, and do so with an extreme focus on being a partner to their customers. In fact, the company has grown 6X in the last 4 years
    - Great inclusive culture - people are passionate about what they are doing, open to learning, and have fun together ... look at company parties and you'll see everyone dancing, no pretensions, but humble and open
    - Global company - if you want to learn how a global company operates with vendors equally distributed around the world (albeit America growing the fastest), Avangate not only needs to market and sell, but to operate and collaborate globally
    - Early mover compared to its traditional competitors

    Cons

    - Global company - be ready for early morning and late night calls, inevitable missed communications, and certainly some travel
    - Scaling up - new processes, people, systems ... be ready for change

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate to the organization on how the company continues to lead its market, even as it expands into adjacent markets.

    I have been working at Avangate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Advanced platform, skilled and passionate product development (and product management), support functions, customer driven, good potential to grow. Loyal group of people who stayed even during confusing times, believers of Avangate and its mission.

    Advice to Management

    Articulate vision and motivate people with consistent communication, empower and acknowledge talent independent of location. Protect culture and values. Rely on facts / data.. less on opinions.
