    Pros

    Small enough company to wear many different hats, but big enough where it's manageable. Additionally, the new space is awesome, so happy to be there.

    Cons

    While the workloads are often manageable, there are definite periods when there's so much to do. It's all about ensuring that those periods are balanced out throughout the year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within - so much talent internally already! But at the same time, it's important to find the balance between promoting within when possible, and bringing in new talent where it is needed.

    Pros

    When you're surrounded by smart people who love what they do, it's easy to be lifted to succeed. There are many opportunities to take on projects and run with them.

    Cons

    Space is crazy tight - headphones are a must. The new space will be open soon, though, so this is a short term con. As the company is expanding, there are a few growing pains. Decision by democracy is getting harder.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more authoritative business decisions rather than democratic.

    I have been working at Crimson Hexagon full-time

    Pros

    The people are engaged, curious and passionate. The vision is solid and fulfilling; the company is addressing an exciting and challenging problem. The company is high growth but seeks to maintain startup culture through free snacks, happy hours and other events. If there isn't a formal event, we often still gather after work -- colleagues are friends.

    Cons

    Professional differences in opinion can get too heated or personal (a downside of very passionate people). High growth means that things can be chaotic, but in some ways that's a good problem to have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on culture and collaboration, especially as the company grows. Keep it fun, innovative and friendly. Help improve operations by introducing more efficient ways of communicating and executing.

    Pros

    gives interns a lot of opportunities to contribute, the people are great and a lot of us spend time with one another outside of work. The stocked cafe doesn't hurt either.

    Cons

    The exec team is definitely not as transparent and open to suggestions/change as they claim to be. Also, it is very difficult to switch departments within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the exec team! Also, encourage and make it easier for employees to explore career opportunities in other departments. People have left because they weren't able to switch!

    Pros

    Great culture!! I loved my clients, coworkers and the general atmosphere. I learned so much and really enjoyed being at a company during its startup period.

    Cons

    Terrible management. There is such rigidity amongst executive team that allows no room for innovative thinking. HR is too intimated by rigid executive team to intervene.

    Advice to Management

    Take advice from those in lower ranking positions, and focus on what will make your employee happy and, thus, more efficient. Maybe venture beyond what a book told you about how to build rapport and office culture and just LISTEN to employees.
