    Pros

    - The people are great to work with
    - The company is in a fast going industry and is focused on providing new services and tools to help with online reputation management. It is clear there is a lot of potential for growth
    - As a start - up you certainly gain a lot of experience doing a wide array of jobs. It adds a lot to the resume.
    -Reasonable pay and benefits
    - Good PTO and unlimited Sick days
    -Team events

    Cons

    Being a start up it still has some issues around communication and infrastructure. Things don't seem to flow perfect on a day to day basis, but it seems like many of the hurtles come from being a younger team that had to grow a company very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Work through some of the communication issues. It might be important to also offer more training for both employees as well as management. Keep building on what you have, it is exciting to see the company grow!

    Pros

    I love working somewhere that is growing so fast - it makes every day exciting to know that you are truly making an impact and pushing the company forward. I know I can stay here for a long time because there are so many opportunities and different ways to continue growing.

    My favorite part of BY, though, is that I genuinely like the people I work with. It makes a huge difference to work alongside a team who truly supports you. The office is filled with highly motivated, highly dedicated, bright people who make work fun and interesting. I never stop being impressed with the ideas that come out of this team

    Cons

    There are always growing pains when things move this quickly. Being part of a start-up like this does ask a lot of you, but it gives a lot in return as well. For me that outweighs the negatives, however, don't expect an easy, constant environment where you simply clock in and are not challenged.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to ideas from all directions, stay dynamic and passionate

    I'm excited to go to work every day and collaborate with a team that helps me develop professionally. Being surrounded by so many talented and kind individuals is a daily reminder that I'm in the right place. Looking forward to seeing how my team and the company continue to grow.

    Cons

    Nothing I haven't experienced at any other job.

    Always seek to improve communication and listen to your team.

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

    Pros

    - Upward mobility is very present. The company is growing so there are new initiatives/business units being created, and additional layers within departments which presents opportunity
    - People are given opportunities to rise to challenges and step into roles as opposed to all hires being made externally
    - Everyone cares a lot about their job, the company and the people they work with, making it one of the more rewarding places to work
    - While the company still has lot's to prove it has been investing more money and time in both internal and external training for employees
    - People get along making it somewhere you can stay for a long time

    Cons

    - There's a lot of change as the company expands and it's not possible to meet everyones needs
    - It sometimes can be a challenge connecting across both BrandYourself offices
    - Some months i feel the company can't hire fast enough sometimes putting strain on current resources

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing information with the company. We all feel part of the journey we're on and the more information we have the more we can feel part of it. Continue hiring enthusiastic and intelligent people and ensure BrandYourself remains a great place to work.

    I have been working at Brandyourself full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    BrandYourself has done a great job at hiring and building a positive and encouraging culture. Because the company has been growing rapidly, each employee has the ability to leave their mark on the organization and have a positive impact.

    Every position within the company allows for employees to own their work and implement new ideas and ways of doing things. BrandYourself is not a company that is stuck in their ways and resistant to change.

    The benefits offered are very generous and the office location makes it nice to walk to lunch and spend time with co-workers.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to cast the vision and the direction of the company to everyone. It can be easy to get caught up in the day-to-day operations and lose track of the long-term goals and vision.

    I have been working at Brandyourself full-time

    Pros

    -In the last year or so, the employee reviews at brandyourself have gotten a lot more detailed and consistent than when I first started. There have also been more training and development opportunities.
    -Lots of growth potential - the company's been growing fast which means a lot of chances to step into new roles
    -Experiments and new ways of doing things are usually given a shot even if they don't always work out

    Cons

    -Never quite enough time/resources to fix all the issues
    -Certain accounts can be tough - even when you're doing your best it doesn't always mean your work is going to get rave reviews from every client
    -Things change really quickly which is exciting but it also means you have to learn new processes and ways of doing things on a tight timeline

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward and keep thinking about ways to create opportunities for the team.

    I have been working at Brandyourself part-time

    Pros

    Awesome and understanding bosses, great coworkers, and an amazing facility to use. Plenty of couch space to relax while you work and well stocked kitchens and facilities that make getting tea or a quick snack a breeze. Close to downtown so getting lunch is never a stress.

    Coworkers are all friendly and helpful and the office itself feels calm and inviting.

    Cons

    Office space is at a minimum and I'm constantly being shifted around. As someone that needs a familiar work space, I don't want to have to worry about coming into work and not having some place to work. An unnecessary added stress.

    I have been working at Brandyourself full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced culture with plenty of opportunities to engage outside of your given department.

    The company is far enough along that you have support and structure but not so big that the startup mentality and ability to creatively solve problems has diminished.

    Cons

    There could be stronger collaboration between the two offices

    Advice to Management

    The company wide meetings give a lot of insight into the long term direction and mission for the company. Continue to put resources and initiatives in place that help all the employees understand and be inspired by the overall mission and long term direction!
