    I have been working at Bytion full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been at Bytion for over a year now and I absolutely love it. The people, culture, management, and work/life balance are all incredible! Not to mention, the work we do here! Using cutting edge technology to make our ideas become a reality, most exciting work I've ever done. I'm constantly challenged by the work, which has allowed me to learn new things and advance so quickly. Management also makes you feel like your...

    Cons

    Rapid growth calls for more employees so I would just say that the more we bring on the faster we reach our new goals

    I worked at Bytion part-time

    Pros

    You can work remotely from anywhere in the US.

    Cons

    I don't know where to begin. First Bytion is a front for websites to buy social media followers. They own two or three websites. Bytion is just a name the owner pick with no real meaning behind it. The website was made wit ha cheap wordpress template. I was contacted from an HR representative that was on a "contract" with Bytion. They seemed heavily interested in me, but upon trying to set up calls with the "CEO"...

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. You won't make it by running scam websites like purchasing social media followers.

    I have been working at Bytion full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Working for Bytion for about over 5 years now, I can say the company is very fast-paced, and always on the cutting edge of technologies, industries and marketing. The people are smart, we're able to have a big say in what/how things get done, hours are fleixible and ability to work remote is a huge plus. They pay extremely well, benefits are superb and the performance bonuses can be really good.

    Cons

    Laptops/hardware is only provided if you're In-House, not to remote employees. Fast paced means things can change quickly, including the tools used for the job, so being adaptable is very important. Strict on clocking in no clocking out for remote employees, even for breaks.

    Advice to Management

    There have been ups and downs, but all in all, I'm happy to be a part of Bytion. Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Bytion

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Remote work. Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    State your experience, give references, be honest during interview, be treated like you don't know what your talking about once hired. Place has a revolving door with people either leaving or planning to leave due to constant negative reinforcement and complete lack of planning. Instead of being trusted to use your experience to give estimates you are GIVEN wishful thinking deadlines, then slapped down when you push...

    I worked at Bytion full-time

    Pros

    remote work environment; set schedule

    Cons

    Required you to use your own personal computer Did not provide training Required you to download software so they coud see and what you were doing all day Micromanaged with constant check-ins

    Advice to Management

    Speak to people with more respect Develop actual processes and systems Follow through on what you say you're going to do Provide laptops to remote employees if you want them to download all kinds of monitoring software to their personal devices

    Pros

    Great building, lots of perks. Lot's of great fellow employees.

    Cons

    The CEO/Owner can't be trusted. He constantly flakes out, almost never makes good on a promise. And he discriminates based on an candiate's looks and age.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up.

    Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry to hear I've left a negative impression on you. This definitely comes as a shock to me, as I have never received criticism such as this. In fact, it’s usually the exact opposite. As the CEO and sole founder of Bytion, I’ve poured my heart ...

    I worked at Bytion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing to appreciate.They gave fake promises..but nothing worked as per they said. salary, appraisal, duties and responsibilities.Nothing was followed legally. complete cheating management. Especially the HR

    Cons

    Nobody followed professional ethics.HR is more important to them than their employees. They have fired a lot of good employees already.literally harassment on employees.no respect. no values. a irresponsible leadership, the CEO spents much time on parties than working in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get fooled by the reviews here. They required you to place a review here in Glassdoor and it should be a five star review or else they will also dismiss you like the rest of the employees without any warning. DON"T GET FOOLED BY THIS COMPANY. THIS COMPANY IS THE WORST.
