      The Church of Bandwidth - "Where is the seasoning"

      Pros

      Health insurance. Soon to be international. Hopefully this will bring change and add some much needed culture.

      Cons

      Conservative christian central: The company is very conservative and continues to pray before company wide meetings. It's common to hear sayings such as "love thy neighbor", "be fruitful and multiply". Nothing wrong with those beliefs, but this is a business not Sunday service. Diversity: What diversity? Unlike other corporations, the company refused to speak on the Black Lives Matter movement this year and specifically mentioned they would not speak on it as to not offend customers and other employees. This hints to the number of "all lives matter" folks in the company. On that note, they previously made "Make Financial Close Great Again" hats.... Refusing to speak on BLM along with asking people to work in the office during a pandemic caused many to leave throughout 2020. The company then scrambled to start a diversity initiative that hasn't really accomplished anything. Covid: Historical anti WFH culture. They're "allowing" people to work from home during this period, but have encouraged people to come back over and over, ignoring the numerous emails sent of infected employees, and all while management hints that promotions are affected by not physically showing up. If they don't see you working, you're not working basically. The offer of free lunch to work in the office is pathetic. Masks were optional until the NC governor passed a mandate in Nov 2020, and even then management sent an email allowing people to remove masks at their desk. Anti-maskers in the office are not following the mask rule of course. Management: Toxic, self-absorbed, false leaders. "MOMagers" that ignore real production results and stick to the "make a baby, get promoted" formula. Problematic, unprofessional, non-diverse HR. Work/Pay: Below market pay. The "work life balance" they preach varies by department. When renovations started after the IPO, specific teams were quickly moved to new separate buildings while the rest of the company remained put, using drywall dust elevators and putting up with noise.

      Pros

      The team (from C-level to direct line management) here invests in you + your development like nowhere I've ever seen. At the individual level, they care about helping you grow and supporting you in that growth. The promise of work/life balance (especially in all that is 2020 craziness) is real, and management and team members do so much to support each other. The benefits are also exceptional, and the future is bright!

      Cons

      Still in growth mode, so sometimes it's not clear who owns what/decision by committee. Really though, if you're ready to take on new challenges and work alongside bright, innovative minds though, there's no place better.

      Pros

      This company is hands down the best company I've worked for in my 20+ year career. * The CEO is the most ethical business leader I've ever seen * The work environment prioritizes mission first * Work/Life balance is emphasized * It's fun, engaging work * Professional development is encouraged * Peers are all incredibly intelligent * Benefits are top notch * Bandwidth cares about all of their employees and it *really shows* ** Pay, benefits, fitness challenges, review process, etc... There isn't a job offer out there that could convince me to leave this company.

      Cons

      It can be hard to get an interview/get hired. They have high standards.
