    Pros

    Outstanding culture, fantastic benefits, genuine co-workers, fast growing and successful company with a great reputation in the industry.

    Absolutely nothing! This is hands down one of the best companies to work for! CAKE is a company that genuinely cares about its employees and in return, the employees take great care of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow your employees to purse excellence in their positions and promote growth and leadership in all company roles!

    I worked at CAKE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of nice folks! Aggressive CTO, in a good way. Forward thinker, open to see what is new out there.

    Cons

    This is an adTech firm where technology can make or break you. Few entrenched middle managers are too influential to make critical change, even with an aggressive CTO.

    Advice to Management

    Do not depend too much on old wisdom. If the firm is not moving in the direction that you wish, or isn't moving fast enough, gracefully retire your middle managers.

    Pros

    Exciting projects, loads of opportunity/upward mobility, regular Nerf gun battles, benefits, relaxed work environment, experienced and approachable leadership, and a career-minded mentality. The leadership really cares about the work/life balance, and vacation time is not accrued, but given immediately.

    I have been working at CAKE (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am convinced that CAKE has the best work-family you will ever find. The people here are truly kind, welcoming, respectful and fun to be around. It's a collaborative environment and everyone is willing to help anyone at any given time, even the executive and management teams. After working at CAKE for over 3 years, I left to pursue another opportunity, it didn't take me long to realize what I was missing. I came back for the people mostly, they are smart, hard-working, innovative and you will learn more from this place that most others. CAKE is a great product and helps a lot of people run their business and will continue to do great things, but the people here will make it like no other job you've ever had before. You'll meet life long friends here, enjoy team outings, lunches and coffee breaks with great friends and mentors and much more that makes for a camaraderie that is undeniable.

    Cons

    There have been some definite growing pains, from management to product but I am confident we're back on a good trajectory. I wouldn't have come back if I didn't think that was true.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating, keep listening, keep showing your employees they're appreciated.

    I have been working at CAKE full-time

    Pros

    While being a new employee at a company can be intimidating, it is not at CAKE. Everyone is very welcoming and eager to help you learn. The overwhelming support makes for an exceptional learning environment in conjunction with their on-boarding. The vibrant atmosphere within the office also makes for a fun learning environment as welll.

    Cons

    Being that my time at CAKE has not been that long, I have not experienced any cons working here at CAKE.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to continue with whatever they're doing to promote such a great learning environment in the office.
