    I worked at Eaze full-time

    Pros

    -Execs and onboarding teams will "inspire" you with propaganda on leading California's new marijuana industry
    -Cool people
    -Free snacks

    Cons

    -They're all about transparency, but business-decisions and strategies that change the day-to-day for entire teams are still made with zero transparency and with very little time for teams to prepare. When it comes to projects and such, valuing transparency invites too many cooks in the kitchen and makes execution really inefficient.
    -Too many inexperienced employees with manager or director titles; poor hierarchical order and needs additional leadership training
    -Culture of working late and unspoken expectation to work after hours and on weekends

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on giving motivational speeches and more time working on everyone's leadership abilities and developing the right culture.

    Pros

    The company is growing like crazy. There are very interesting challenges for the eng team (similar to what uber, lyft, postmates have) plus additional ones because of the industry and regulations.
    The team is extremely collaborative and the colleagues are great people I enjoy working with.

    Cons

    With 3 offices directors and above sometimes have to travel a bit to keep in contact with each other, otherwise, they have to rely on remote communication that is not always ideal.

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

    Pros

    - As the de facto leader in the cannabis space, Eaze truly is changing the world. By working at Eaze, you get to be an impactful part of a team that is leading the revolution. You are able to shape the way people perceive and interact with marijuana. It is an opportunity like no other.
    - It's actually FUN! There is an inherent light heartedness in the culture. Teams love spending time with one another. People work do hard but it's because they are inspired to and love what they do, not because their managers told them to.
    - Wonderful and experienced management team who truly cares about their employees and are able to balance short term wins with long term vision. Leaders at Eaze are on the front lines and able to handle stressful situations with poise.

    Cons

    - To be effective at Eaze, you have to be comfortable with (an ideally excited by) some amount of chaos. There are a lot of regulatory curve balls thrown your way and you need to be ready to take them in stride. There are some folks who struggle with this.
    - Expectations are high. People who come in that aren't excited about the industry and business won't do well here. It's not your traditional 9-5.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the light hearted, collaborative culture alive in the face of massive scale.

    Pros

    Moves at the speed of light. No time for red-tape, employees are given a ton of autonomy. Very transparent culture, very flat hierarchy despite titles. Everyone pitches in and gets their hands dirty

    Cons

    Too many execs for such a small company. Communication across the board isnt the best, but its improving.

    Advice to Management

    Do not force the culture to stay the same. Allow the company's culture to grow as it grows. Try and engage individual contributors more, as well as middle management. Its most important for mgmt to all be on the same page.

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

    Pros

    The legal marijuana industry is exciting and Eaze is the largest consumer software player. The company is run responsibly and has a business that's miles ahead of local or out-of-state competition. This lack of competition meant the office was typically relaxed and workdays were short.

    Cons

    The product and engineering teams are a major weak spot. Poor vision and often out of touch with users. Engineering has a lot of legacy baggage and leadership was more interested in dabbling in design and product management than confronting technical challenges before they were fires. This led to constant delays, frustration, and employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee retention, be humble. Employees are leaving because they do not feel respected, engaged, or challenged in their work.

    I worked at Eaze full-time

    Pros

    There are nice offices to work in, and the location for the Los Angeles (Santa Monica) offices is great to grab lunch with friends.

    Cons

    No organization, recruitment of employees is a joke.
    Exec team are clueless, they don't hire to improve the business as they feel threatened.

    Advice to Management

    You should look inwards to see if you want to move forward as a business. Try and be truthful in your recruiting, Don't be afraid at hiring people that could be better than you, it will help the business in the long term.

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

    Pros

    The good people are good. All 12 of them.

    Cons

    Eaze was a very hostile and uncomfortable working environment. Many senior staff (all white tech bros, even the ladies) have issues understanding what is acceptable workplace conduct/behavior and what is not. Many times in dealing with management, I was shunned, siloed away, and then chatted about behind my back via different office communication platforms.

    I was gaslighted by multiple VPs and Directors, and when I left, many of my former coworkers applauded my decision.

    Advice to Management

    Get some major HR/sexual harassment training.

    Stop running your company the way Donald Trump fake runs the country.

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

    Pros

    In a good category, cannabis.

    Cons

    Horrid HR. Terrible lack of vision setting from the board. No vision. Brutal to vendors and treats customers for just their money not their loyalty. Jim Patterson is a known terrible personality from the tech world. Too young and inexperienced to be a 'CEO'.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink what Eaze could be and what Eaze actually is becoming.
