    I worked at BitTitan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Some really great coworkers who are good people and work hard to get things done right * Great customers who love BitTitan * Great offices in Singapore and Bellevue

    Cons

    * The CEO is BitTitan's biggest liability. The turnover rate at the company is horrendous. He is likely the main reason for the roughly 30% turnover at the company in the last year and. There seems to be a big blowup about every 2.5 years. The CEO is determined and single minded but lacks any leadership instincts or abilities. He blamed his developers for the failure of his incubation product MSPC even though he would not let the idea fail fast and die after there was no demand. As soon as someone left the company the CEO would waste no time in telling as many current employees as he could that the former employee did not know what they were doing or didn't do something right. Not very professional and not behaviour fitting of someone in the CEO position, let alone any management position. - Lacks emotional intelligence. Cannot keep his cool or help but yell when he gets upset, which is much of the time. Does not listen, but merely tells so any meeting with the CEO becomes a painful listening experience for you and one in which an actual conversation does not occur. - Clearly narcissistic. I think he believes he truly knows everything about everything and if he could, he would fire everyone in the company and go back to being a company of one employee. - Has majority vote in the company

    I worked at BitTitan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * Customers truly love the product * Some great people

    Cons

    * The CEO appears to be determined to bring the company down from the inside. Everyone appears to be scared of him, up-to and including the Vice President level * CEO seems to believe he can do everyone else's job better than them, and all at once. He will not allow people to do their job, often coming in and tearing things apart for no good reason * CEO seems to think he knows more about everything than everyone else, even when the facts don't back that up * CEO has instilled a culture of mistrust and suspicion * The culture of mistrust extends down through the entire company, resulting in endless ineffective reporting and huge meetings where upper-level management get to micro-manage * Many products get abandoned part-way through or even after completion before being tested in the market. Get ready to repeatedly throw away your code if you are an engineer I truly believed I could change the culture here for the better but I was not able to succeed at that, so I left. It's a huge shame because there are many talented employees and customers who truly love the main product (MigrationWiz)

    I have been working at BitTitan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Every organization has its challenges, and BitTitan is no exception, but the leadership team is committed to acknowledging issues that may arise and acting in the best interest of the whole BitTitan team. The founder and CEO has an honest passion for making BitTitan a place that people want to work. The office in Bellevue has been thoughtfully designed to encourage collaboration and socialization, and the facilities team works hard to create an environment that supports the needs and wants of employees. The products that BitTitan creates are interesting and relevant to today's cloud-based world. There's plenty of opportunity to continue improving existing products and building new ones, providing team members with nearly endless possibilities for enhancing their skills and career.

    Cons

    There are some quirky things where BitTitan has chosen to do something differently than would be typical in other organizations, and sometimes it's clear that things were designed by very engineering-minded individuals. The organization is working to transition some things from a startup mentality to doing things in a more "official" way, and that doesn't always go smoothly.

    I have been working at BitTitan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have to keep pinching myself to make sure this place is real and I'm not dreaming. Work/life balance is exceptional. Many places SAY they want their employees to have work/life balance; BitTitan means it with their unlimited PTO policy. The Mission Statement isn't just a poster on the wall; the CEO, Executive Team, and Managers clearly live-by the company stated values both inside and outside the work place -- this, in-turn, flows down to all of their direct reports. It shows every day that employees are also striving (and succeeding) to live-by the company values. Engaging atmosphere; the social hall and employee events are beyond amazing! Everyone's ideas are important; I feel listened to and valued as an employee. Casual, yet professional office which honors diversity and inclusion. Open work spaces that encourage and promote teamwork. I truly feel as though BitTitan is a family; there is genuine care and concern for employees / co-workers. I am encouraged to learn and grow both as an employee and as a person. Easy to communicate with my manager; feedback is honest and helpful. If I need help; I just need to ask. If I have questions, I just need to ask. From the top-down, the company recognizes and values both my individual and team success. All-in-all I feel respected, valued, and appreciated.

    Cons

    Having to leave on Fridays for 2 days! Although most positions do have a path for career advancement, my current position doesn't have a direct-line career advancement path.

    I have been working at BitTitan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is clear that management has made an investment in professionals that know how to make positive changes for employees. We can see this is recent improved hires and a very capable new HR team. Employees seem comforted with having a stable management team and HR department. The new leadership in Product Management has made good changes . 3 new directors give us the attention we never got before. The HR team is world class and very helpful. They have a guy that is very helpful with systems and understand employee engagement. He has already brought on much positive change. He understands the business and start ups. The HR person assigned to our team is nice too! She has attended our meetings and learning the business. There are other new HR people on the team who are busy and extremely helpful.

    Cons

    The product team has good talent that goes un-recognised. The CEO has removed himself from our work and is all consumed with his new pet project.

    I have been working at BitTitan full-time

    Pros

    There are many things that have made BitTitan a great place to work (and hard to leave)! Professional Growth: One thing that has been truly consistent is the opportunity for professional growth, access to up-level your skills, and follow your passion. BitTitan opens the door to allow you to pave your own career path and follow your interests by taking training classes, attending professional learning events, and networking. It’s great working in an environment that supports you and your professional development. Work hard, play hard: BitTitan moves fast but with all the work, there is a ton of fun to be had as well. My colleagues are some of the brightest and most fun people I know. There’s a special camaraderie that sparks the work hard/play hard environment that BitTitan cultivates. Whether you’re at HQ eating up the perks of the office or taking advantage of remote employee benefits – the company is invested in its people. The unlimited PTO and unique sabbatical policy are benefits that have allowed me to enjoy a healthy work-life balance. BitTitan has a culture that you want to show off to your family and friends. Leadership and employee empowerment: I am fortunate to work with the leaders of this organization. At BitTitan, employees have to accessibility to talk to a VP in the Social Hall or walk up to the desk of the CEO and discuss whatever is on their mind. It breaks down traditional corporate walls of access and provides for a more open work environment.

    Cons

    Fast-paced environment: There are phases where everyone has been moving 100 MPH in different directions. This is frustrating at times because departments aren’t as aligned as they should be. This is something that leadership is consistently trying to improve. Constant change: Processes change constantly, and that change can be hard. It is particularly difficult when you just managed to get the hang of a process and then it’s gone.

    Pros

    There is great food, the facilities team goes above and beyond to make each month special. Lots of talented team members in most departments.

    Cons

    The company strategy is ever changing, even with the change in leadership, goals are still missed. The CEO is a micromanager and will have temper tantrums for no reason. Employees are not valued, perks are a joke as you can’t use them. You will get stock when you are hired and through out the year but will most likely be fired before they ever vest.
