    I worked at Beeline full-time

    Pros

    * Great Culture
    * Great People
    * Fun relaxed environment
    * Competitive

    Cons

    * Went through a merger so culture took a huge hit due to staff reduction
    * Sales first? How about customer first? If you produce products with the end user in mind and not to the scope to a handful of Fortune500 buyers whose wishlist helps <1% of the market, the sales will come. Ask Atlassian

    Advice to Management

    It was a memorable chapter in my career. Thanks for the memories, laughs, and experience. Best wishes

    Pros

    Great culture
    Understanding Management
    Great Teamwork within Departments
    Flexible Hours

    Cons

    2016 was not a great year for Beeline. Due to a decreased revenue there were tight budgets and stress that started with executive management did make its way down to all employees. There were more lay offs seen than in any of the years prior and the culture 100% suffered. Not only were "fun" team building outings put on the back burner due to budgets but the stress really took a toll on employees. After the acquisition and merger things seemed to only become worse and a large layoff took place. I don't believe this was any one person's fault as business is business but it did seem like a good time to leave the company while it tries to find its new identity.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully they can bring Beeline back up to where it was before 2016 - truly a great place to work.

    Pros

    - Family first culture
    - Executive Management w/ Integrity
    - Company Principles to live by
    - Growth opportunities

    Cons

    - Position eliminations after merger
    - Fear of the unknown

    Advice to Management

    None. Business is business. Growing a business calls for change and sometimes that change is not comfortable for all employees. I know that executive management wants the best for all employees (current and former) and their actions post merger have proven that.

    Pros

    Exciting time of bringing two great organizations together. A lot of new, modern development with fresh, innovative ideas. Transparent, direct and honest leadership team.

    Cons

    During times of change, still some dead weight and those who are fighting change.

    Advice to Management

    Stay close to employees. Identify critical employees and make sure they know their role in the organization.

    Pros

    Terrific co-workers, set your own hours

    Cons

    the magic is gone since the merger

    Advice to Management

    Looks like Doug sold his soul to the Devil to be #1 but, that seems to have backfired. The true backbone of your organization were your loyal employees and you allowed IQNavigator to get rid of the bulk of them in your layoffs, and now Beeline is looking like a sinking ship, so everyone is looking to jump ship. Hope your deal with the Devil was worth it.

    Pros

    - If you are a motivated, hard worker, the sky is the limit for your career. You have the ability to pave your own path forward.
    - The benefits and culture are amazing!
    - Products are first class and #1 in the market.
    - Exceptional customer service
    - Great, forward thinking leadership

    Cons

    The lack of communication from the Executive Leadership team at times leaves employees pondering or creating false stories instead of using facts, ultimately harming the amazing culture.

    Advice to Management

    Have the executive team meet more often with employees rather than messaging only coming from their management organization

    Pros

    Great people, great talent, family friendly environment

    Cons

    Lower than market salary but people stayed because of company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Beeline as we knew it is gone, moral is at the lowest it's been in over 3 years, and the future is bleak. This was truly the best place to work - period - but those days have passed. In fact, the big selling point for working at Beeline has always been it's dynamic employees and fantastic culture since the pay was almost always lower than out in the market. However, since the beginning of the year there have been several layoffs and long-term employees have been leaving in a steady stream. If you get a job there, you will like your co-workers very much, but the stability of any job is now questionable. Management's best bet is to be completely honest and transparent with employees because they are a very intelligent bunch and can read between the lines. Sugar coating does no one any favors and will further reduce employees' trust in anything management has to say.

    Pros

    Beeline allows their employees flexibility and autonomy. Doug Leeby is a charismatic and inspiring leader.

    Cons

    Since the merger, Beeline has lacked strategic direction. Voluntary and involuntary turnover is rampant. Leadership has failed to provide governance or communication, seemingly because they don't have a handle of the future vision of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Address your employees concern, rationalize and provide new job titles/descriptions, help the employees and the clients understand long term vision. If you don't have one, develop one and fast.
