    I worked at CityTwist full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for social media and email marketing experience. Tech majors can add a lot to their portfolio as well; have a web app and jQuery under my belt thanks to CityTwist.

    Cons

    The bathroom on the 4th floor tends be a bit congested as far as ventilation is concerned, I recommend using the 3rd floor instead.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job already as everyone can see with the latest reports and growth I noticed mining data. Keep the subject lines under 25 characters and mabey start offering Facebook's data.

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

    Pros

    There are some nice people working there. The product seems to be legitimate and valuable to (at least some) clients. (Others who don't get value from it drop the service. It's a mix.) To hear management tell it, they're cornering the market on what they do, but then if they're doing so well, why do they freak out about the possibility of the slightest bit of inadvertent overtime?

    They provide bagels on Wednesday mornings, which is actually very nice and a good morale booster for the middle of the week. I was amazed at how that seemed to make the week go more quickly.

    Cons

    While the office environment is relatively friendly and there isn't any overt hostility, there's still plenty of office politics going on—mostly behind the scenes involving management, but it will still affect you. The company is far from stable in terms of how it structures its work teams, layout, and procedures. There is lots of change going on pretty frequently. I got only a partial sense of security and stability while working there. They've been around for nearly a decade so I'm surprised they haven't grown more firm than they have.

    There are tons of millennials working there with almost no sense of professional decorum and/or social courtesy. At times, conversations out on the floor got loud and disruptive and no one seemed to think that was unprofessional, nor did management do anything about it—as long as it was certain people and not others.

    Management takes a very hands-off approach to establishing office decorum. Sure, there's an employee handbook with policies in it, but it's hot-or-miss whether they're enforced. I was glad that the dress code is essentially very casual, but some people showed up in t-shirts eventually.

    The office itself is quite run-down, barely if at all decorated, kind of dingy. The carpets are stained and gross. Everything seems very unfinished, like they took over another company's office and did essentially nothing to make it theirs. There are numerous areas where rooms and offices and hallways are being used to store office furniture, computers, and equipment. People's work stations are continually being relocated by a harried IT staff.

    Work stations are very cramped and crowded together. Used to have teams working in different rooms, but recently got thrown all together. Having the artists, customer service reps, and proofreader QA people in one room made for a chaotic working environment even if it did facilitate interdepartmental communication somewhat.

    I saw what was to me a startling amount of turnover while I was there for a year plus. I often wondered what was making people leave, and got a creepy feeling like they were escaping to better things, and that no one felt like being there for very long.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved and visible to the workers, and take a more active role in day-to-day operations. Observe and manage the floor. There was a lot of chitchat going on at times that got loud and disruptive and no one really ever did anything to control it.

    Decorate the office. Finish the work stations so they don't feel haphazard. Give each worker a bit more personal space, with a desk that has drawers, rather than just a tabletop (come on!).

    Pros

    Easley earn a six figure income with a warm sale offering a solid product that is non incentive driven.

    Cons

    The only thing I see that would be considered a con. Might be the there are people in the office that think they have earned a sense of entitlement and rules dont apply to them.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the negative people bring in those who want to work and succeed not sit around all day and do nothing but complain.

    Pros

    I have worked in a few different departments and have been a part of constant growth. If you have strengths, they will allow you to use them. Hours are good. Benefits are 100% paid and great benefits. Bagel Wednesdays and a friendly, professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    No Cons, unless you're not a quick learner. Expectations are set for one to catch on quick, must be sharp.

    Advice to Management

    Continental Breakfast once a month?

    Pros

    The salary is pretty decent consider that we are in Florida. That is it. Oh, and the coffee machine. I liked that. There is definitely potential.

    Cons

    Middle Management. Product. Service. Working 9-6..but you HAVE to leave right at 6? Why. Talk to employees like you are children, like you are enemies.. Not professional.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. We are the ones on the front lines that know the market. The latest initiative was long over due. We mentioned it numerous times. Now that it has been implemented the results speak for themselves.

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

    Pros

    There I had the ability to work on the fundamentals of the Internet. Unix server systems (FreeBSD specifically). DNS, IP management. SSH/httpd/mail and honed my skills on farm management.

    Cons

    All systems (at least in house save for a few black box systems we did not have any access to) were built on random hand me down desktop PC hardware. This was in my professional opinion a nightmare to work with. The immense unreliability and chaotic setup that did NOT scale well (even though it was setup to sort of scale somehow).

    Management was too much into the buddy buddy setup, and didn't behave in a professional enough manner for my liking. When the money was rolling in, they were happy. But when things got dicey, no one took anything serious. At one point, they were trying to launch a dozen new products that all seemed to go nowhere in what could only be described as throwing stuff at the wall just to see what stuck.

    Advice to Management

    Shed the small shop immaturity. Focus on your core product that is your bread and butter. Take your business practices more seriously and work from there. You have a viable business model, just don't squander it.
