    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

    Amount of training and management involvement in success. Ellie Mae has heavily invested in me and continues to provide time for me to skill up and enhance my career and work experience. They are very good with remote employees. They encourage me to perform at the best of my ability

    Cons

    None currently. When I travel, I work a LOT, but that will be reduced when I have reached my goals

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    A company that not only leading the industry but also puring the best technology. Ellie Mae expands a lot on the the size but it also offers a lot of trainings, seminars and opportunities for us to grow.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of anything that particular bad here. The culture generally is great here. May be the only complain is the free ice cream ran out too fast during summer time...

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great work and keep us engaged please.

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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Team players. Employee perks. Massage chair. Food. Caring leadership. Opportunities to volunteer & support the local community. Leadership seems to value their employees. All employees are granted stocks on their first day.

    Cons

    Sometimes people can be too relaxed. e.g., it's not uncommon for folks to be late for meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you're doing. Continue to make this a great place to work. The way that you value your employees will ensure that you continue to attract top talent. Continue to hire people who "fit" with the culture. One bad leader can spoil everything. As we grow, be mindful that we can afford all of these new people. Nothing kills culture faster than "right-sizing".

    Pros

    Leader in the industry, great people, execs that live the values they espouse, free ice-cream, fun & supportive work environment.

    Cons

    Financials are partially impacted by the industry and therefore company performance / bonuses are not fully in control of the company & employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look for levers to minimize our reliance on industry resilience.

    I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time

    Pros

    The people by far are the company's greatest strength. Everyone is kind, thoughtful, and eager to do their best. Low stress and high energy. Wish I started here earlier in my career.

    What I really love is that my passions are encouraged. I routinely participate in volunteer events at the Alameda County Food Bank and that warms my heart. The work life balance is amazing. My boss is the kindest soul and understands life happens. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Spend more time applying core values to internal tools.

    Advice to Management

    Optimize our toolsets!
