    I worked at CitizenGlobal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth. Plenty of hats to be worn. No hand holding.

    Cons

    Start-ups can change, and sometimes, shut down. Always the risk of getting in bed when the house isn't entirely built.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with one direction and stay that course exclusively. Likewise, don't let the mistakes of past leaders guide your excuses; take credit for your own failures and move forward.

    Pros

    CG is a team of about 25 - 30 dedicated, smart and talented people pushing the envelope of socially created media (primarily video) content. Leadership comes from a background of technology, media/entertainment, marketing and business.

    What might you be working on? Interesting clients and projects from ABC and Nextel to nonprofits and up-and-coming bands. Creating on a variety of projects from microsites to Facebook and web apps to an online video editor to mobile apps.

    Fun, casual, dog-friendly work environment. Occasional beers on the back patio.

    Benefits include full medical, dental, vision + stock. No 401k at this time.

    Per previous reviewer's comments, the 10% cut has been reinstated and everyone has returned to their previous salaries.

    Cons

    While it has gotten better in recent months, the startup environment is sometimes hectic and there is a frequent shift in the product and focus of the company. Don't get attached to an idea, design or direction, because things will shift and sooner than you think.
