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

    Pros

    Work life balance is good.

    Good SDLC, smart people, and smart engineers.

    Geographically distributed team helps prevent crazy work hours.

    Not boring. There's always something to do.

    Cons

    There are challenges that exist from having 2 very important parts of the company in other timezones.

    Promotions are infrequent. Not sure more bosses are needed though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, keep trying. Strive to keep getting better and better. Encourage or mentor career growth more.

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

    Pros

    Coworker tend to monopolize conversations, dismiss input from others and make decisions without first considering all the facts. The inexperienced college graduates are happy to work here. The learning curve is capped, and the workload is light

    Cons

    Dealing with a know-it-all can be exhausting and there are times when your best response is to ignore their ‘helpful’ hints as much as possible.

    They can often be close-minded as well–which means they can become a severe impediment to the creative process by blocking any idea other than their own. They simply know an idea either will or won’t work. Some know-it-alls can come across as opinionated, aggressive, brusque and even loud–all traits that won’t win over a lot of people at the office–and in fact can be easily construed as bullying behavior.

    Upper management moved on to bigger and better things.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bother posting fake reviews, because AOL already purchase you!

    Pros

    Most professional people I have ever worked with.
    Very nice coworkers, no ego.
    Best bosses I have ever had.
    Challenging product.
    The general energy in the office is super positive.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have a late meetings. But this is because of the nature of the company which is to be scattered in the different places in the world. In fact, this nature has more positive aspects than negative.

    Advice to Management

    mmm...
