    Pros

    90 minute lunches to work out/sports, paid healthcare premiums, great culture and worklife balance, very transparent, they have an AMA with the CEO every few weeks where you can ask anything directly

    Cons

    Salary could be better, but other benefits kinda make up for it

    Pros

    Culture
    Work/life balance
    Benefits
    Upward mobility
    Rewards for hard/great work
    Family friendly
    Wonderful/intelligent work force

    Bandwidth is amazing. I came from a job where I was to the point that I dreaded going to work each day, since coming to Bandwidth I can honestly say I get excited to go into the office everyday. The culture/work environment and people here are so refreshing, I am working with some of the most intelligent and passionate individuals I have ever met. Bandwidth offers fantastic benefits and is VERY family friendly - there are even different policies in place to ensure when your on PTO people don’t bother you so you can relax and refresh. The technology/product Bandwidth produces is really cool and it seems that being better then before is the name of the game - they provide the tools necessary for everyone to be successful from the billing department to the engineering teams. Overall, I am stoked to be here - this is the first time I can honestly say I love my job.

    Cons

    Get rid of the oatmeal raisin cookies up front, but honestly I have no real complaints - I love my job and this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing, as Bandwidth continues to grow there will be inevitable changes - take them a day/step at a time and everything will be ok!

    I worked at Bandwidth full-time

    Pros

    Benefits package includes just about everything

    Lots of fun after-work events

    Cons

    Low pay more than offsets benefits.

    Work-life balance is a myth. You can work every day in some departments and it still won't be enough. You might be working on your vacation time too.

    Management hasn't had any training in leadership, or the legal requirements of managing people, and it shows. Micromanagement, verbal abuse, and discrimination are pretty common here.

    Cliquishness disguised as a search for a "culture fit." I felt like I was back in middle school.

    Technology is dated, opportunities for advancement are limited. This place probably won't advance your career unless you've just graduated and need a first job. Otherwise, it's probably not for you.

    Politics is the name of the game. Upper management comes from Microsoft in the "bad old days" and has modeled their work culture to follow that. Microsoft has learned and is changing their ways. Bandwidth doesn't seem to want to follow their example.

    Advice to Management

    Business first.
