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

    Pros

    I feel that Ellie Mae is a place where I've been able to share my ideas, make an impact, and work with a team that makes great things happen. Colleagues, executives and leaders at the company listen and collaborate with others, no matter your position. I've grown and learned an incredible amount over my first year here at Ellie Mae, and look forward to continuing my career growth and development with Ellie Mae.

    Cons

    Some growing pains due to fast-paced growth; at times, workload is overwhelming; however, direct managers are very willing to work with employees and teams to make it right.

    Advice to Management

    Management and top executives are very involved with employees - it is much appreciated, keep it up!

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

    Pros

    Ellie Mae provides a lot of perks for the employees from free ice cream to chair massages. While we work hard, there are opportunities to relax with ping pong, arcade games and even a golf simulator.

    Cons

    The company is hiring so quickly that sometimes it seems they are being hired without evaluating whether they are a good fit for not only the job but the culture. Then they are gone within a year.

    I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Since I've started, my team has been welcoming, my business partners enthusiastic and overwhelmingly positive about the work we are accomplishing together. My executive management team is focused on being approachable and delivering results, and seems to legitimately value my team's input/insight. My expectations for work-life and work/life/balance at Ellie Mae have been far exceeded as they offer flexible work-schedules and freedom in how I cultivate my role. I'm very fortunate to be on a team where creativity and hustle are the norm; from my perspective this is one of the best companies in the Bay Area, and I feel fortunate to be a part of the team.

    As for company culture, there is a large and concerted effort to promote inclusiveness, and there are several company affinity groups (LGBTQ and Friends, Millennial, Women in Leadership, Veterans, etc...), as well as opportunities to join company sports-teams (bowling, basketball, softball, etc...). Other perks like on-site chair masseuses, arcade games and art-tours are great ways to spend a break from one's desk.

    Cons

    It's hard to think of any cons, so I will caution you with a word of unsolicited advice. This is a fast-paced company. The teams here appreciate high-capability as ramp-time is lightning fast. While my experience is that the teams are generally flexible and kind, be prepared to give it your all out the gate; the company is growing both in product and people, and every minute counts.

    Advice to Management

    Our HR leadership team is very receptive to internal feedback, and continuously strives to improve the employee experience. Please continue to advocate on behalf of our growing staff and preserve the open-dialogue environment that I have become accustomed to.
