    I worked at Dovetail full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Attractive from outside. HR has a lucerative power to attract

    Cons

    They do lot of micro-monitoring. They don't judge the effort and call you out with not any relevant reasons behind. Management listen only senior employees. Lots of discrimination. Many Flatterers in praising the senior management from whom that can get favor and benefit to stay longer.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice and don't be judgmental so quick despite the fact that the others perform well already

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, Working from home.

    Cons

    No team culture, everybody works mostly as if an individual contributor.
    No appreciation of good work no feed back of any kind. No real performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Create units of small teams, involve technical people to drive projects instead of pure managers who don't know and don't care what any of the tasks are and how they relate to each other.

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

    Pros

    Payments processing is complex and challenging, making for fascinating subject matter. There are some fine people on the staff. Many bright people with good ideas and extensive backgrounds.

    Cons

    There is much lip service given to valuing employees but no demonstrable sincerity. Management shows little to no consideration of employee skills, interests, expertise or knowledge. One set of standards exists for the elite few, while the rest of the people are treated with disparagement.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, and treat people like adults. Engage in teamwork, which you name as a value, but do not practice.

    I have been working at Dovetail full-time

    Pros

    Most of the pros have been taken away in the last 12 months: very strict WFH policy, bonuses eliminated (except for senior management), etc. The product itself is not bad and has the potential to be great.

    Cons

    Many of the executives are simply not qualified to be in their respective positions. This has led to a steady decline in culture, product quality, and industry reputation.
