    Pros

    BlueSnap is a growing company thanks to great management, a great product offering, and a great market. The company puts a lot of effort into assessing employees based on their 'work IQ's' and communication styles, and this leads to strong support and clearly articulated objectives. Strategic direction is clear and support from colleagues and managers abounds.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings are required to keep everyone rowing in the right direction, which can lead to little time to execute tasks. Expectations are high which can be a turn off to people not accustomed to working under pressure and hours can be long.

    The company is experiencing continual growth and it does feel like there is almost unlimited opportunity here. A great work-life balance!

    Cons

    There are no cons that I can think of.

    Let's continue to grow!

    I have been working at BlueSnap full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The compensation is definitely unparalleled within the tech startup space
     - The work-life balance culture is extremely healthy and actually allows for life outside of work. The work hours can be flexible to fit your needs
     - Healthcare & 401k is great

    Cons

    - As a result of allowing life outside of work, urgency around projects and timelines is extremely lax. This can be frustrating when your ability to complete a task successfully is hindered by the mishaps of others. Which leads to my next point...
     - There is a serious work ethic issue within certain departments and it effects overall office culture to the point that people blatantly will not work during the work day.

    Advice to Management

    Serious thought should be put into turning over employees who do not perform. It is causing a workplace culture of laziness and complacency. Secondly, the CEO, although well intended, will run into serious issues if they continue to make inappropriate comments as the company grows and hires people who are outside the norm of the current workplace culture.

    Cons

    The industry is complex-takes a bit of time to get the big picture and all the players in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Spend a bit more time explaining the industry as a whole

    Pros

    - Environment that invites collaboration across multiple groups.
    - Feeling apart of a larger effort of continued growth for the company. In other words, the company is growing, and you have a direct impact on it’s growth.
    - The executive team/management has a wealth of knowledge about the industry.
    - Solid work-life balance coupled with exciting work environment.
    - Ability to focus on who matters most, the merchant.

    Cons

    - Time off is minimal as vacation and sick time is combined with 20 days being the maximum. In other words, if you are healthy, there is more vacation time. If you tend to be sick on a regular basis, there is less vacation time.
