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

    Pros

    The job is full of nice people and it is EASY. We have fun all day with Cornhole and Ping-pong. You can even work from home sometimes! Casual dress every day and no cubicles!

    Cons

    The Breakroom does not have an oven or a stove. Only a microwave and coffee pot. There are some frustrating aspects of day-to-day with the use of the software, but not the end of the world

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

    Pros

    The company, environment, people, everything is fantastic! Working many IT positions through my career and none have been more satisfying than Boomtown. They treat all the employees well, give all the employees the opportunity to peruse advancement and new venues.
    Management is top notch, can sometimes be hectic but to be expected with a new growing company, but it's always well managed.

    Cons

    The only con I would have would be location, Scottsdale is out of reach for a lot of people due to the cost of living around the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work

    Pros

    What an incredible and influencial team solving a very complex industry. I can confidently say I've learned more at Boomtown then I have anywhere else. The team is dynamic, courious and always willing to help lend a hand. Boomtown also believes in self-leadership and is constantly focused on how individuals can grow within the organization.

    Cons

    Went through a short tough spell and the team hired a few wrong individuals. The company quickly learned from the mistake and put the right hires in place. Growing a company is never perfect, just happy we had the right executive team to take care of it quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and thank you for the incredible opportunity.

    Pros

    The Boomtown company is an amazing environment to work in. Everyone is extremely passionate about the success of the company and willing to put the work in to make it succeed. Within any role you're given responsibilities and ownership early on and have unlimited opportunities to make significant contributions to the company and the customers Boomtown support.

    Cons

    Not specifically a con but if you're looking for a company and a role where you can just coast through this is not the company to work for. We are a group of passionate and driven individuals and everyone pulls their weight.
