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

    Pros

    There a strong sense of community in this company. The senior management makes a point of being engaged with all employees; Ellie Mae makes giving back to the community part of being an employee; everyone is helpful to new comers.
    My direct management has been very supportive of my ramping up work and with training to become knowledgeable in the industry and become a better trainer.
    Ellie Mae is, by far, the most diverse technology company that I have worked with (and I've worked with a few). And diverse at all levels.
    Ellie Mae is the market leader and has devised a "shared success" strategy for its customers. When Ellie Mae customers make more money, Ellie Mae makes more money. So customers are very satisfied with Ellie Mae.

    Cons

    Ellie Mae is growing fast (which is good). But with that growth in size, old processes that worked with a company of 500 are being strained with a company of 1500.

    Advice to Management

    We are growing fast. Make sure we've got the internal processes and infrastructure to handle all our new employees smoothly.

    I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most will find at ELLI: very strong & decisive leadership; a collaborative spirit (up & down the org); FUN; and balance.

    Cons

    Trying to determine if I want to snack on fresh popcorn or unlimited ice cream!

    Advice to Management

    Keep accountability and decisiveness up; remember to manage by walking around--like our Co-Founder/Executive Chairman, Sig Anderman, perfected. Keep your eyes on the North Star!

    I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A company with great vision, hires very smart people, and cares about their customer's success.

    Cons

    Due to Ellie Mae's size, I think the mid-manager skill level is weak as we have grown and the company could do more to coach-the-coachers in the company. I'm fortunate to have a great manager, but throughout the company, this is an area which I think is weak.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The more informed we are of the EM strategy and plans, the easier it is to keep our customers focus on their success with our partnership.

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

    Pros

    Great perks. Reasonable compensation. Accessible management. Civic minded.

    Cons

    Lack of development for middle management. This level continues to think tactically.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize more effectively. Focus on accountability; too many deadlines missed and too many quality issues.

    Pros

    6x "Bay Area's Best Places to Work" is justified. This is the most positive and supportive company I've worked at...and it starts with the Exec Staff.

    Cons

    No company is perfect, but I'd really have to nit pick to list Cons.
