    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Ellie Mae is one of the best companies I've worked for in terms of employee engagement and caring about their employees. The culture here is nothing I've experienced in my career. Everyone from the CEO down is friendly, approachable, passionate about EM's success, open, honest and the communication down is amazing. I look forward to a long career with Ellie Mae

    Cons

    There is nothing that I can think of that is a negative about this company

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are and keeping the focus you have on ensuring your employees are happy and engaged, with that

    I worked at Ellie Mae full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, although typical and what anyone might expect. Nothing special here.

    Cons

    Metrics.. No focus on actual customer service.. only numbers. The more clients pay, the faster they get help.

    Advice to Management

    Keep chasing that dollar.. that's all that really matters, right?
