    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.

    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.

    Cons

    Most of their employment is staffed outside the United States, which can cause challenges with time differences and some communications.

    Pros

    Work / Life Balance,
    Friendly Work Environment
    Flexible Work Hours
    Work From Home
    Competitive Salary

    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.

    Pros

    I work with great people that communicate very well, I am in a good team and also communicate very well with other departments. The new company direction feels good, acquired 2Checkout and looks like a good idea at this point.

    Cons

    I'd like more team buildings. At this point, there are lots of people that I do not know, not sure if visitors or employee.

    Advice to Management

    I hope we'll keep the development team in Bucharest. Else, things could disintegrate very easy
