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

    Pros

    They are very careful to hire people that will fit the corporate culture of doing the right thing, honesty, tolerance, and giving back to the community. Everyone works as a team and a wonderful supportive environment. You can feel this from the top to bottom in the organization.

    Cons

    Very fast paced organization which can cause stress when trying to meet some deadlines. When you are new, sometimes you can feel a little lost - although everyone is more than happy to help if you ask.

    Pros

    Culture is the best I've had an opportunity to work in. Values are more than talking points & the leaders strive to keep the great culture.

    Perks are solid & include free ice cream, popcorn, fruit days, ping pong & more. There are a lot of celebrations and good work is recognized.

    Cons

    You may gain some weight working here... but luckily you get access to an on-site gym which could help.

    Advice to Management

    Growing Pains... The company has grown so fast that there are a few flat spots that need to be addressed.

      - Many of the Managers / Leaders promoted from within don't have the experience or skills to be highly effective in their role
