    Former Employee - Web Developer in Bristol, PA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at 1SEO.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Trial by fire, great experience. - Work in whatever stack you want (they don't even know what a stack is) - Don't worry about pesky version controlling - No strict coding standards (none at all - make them up!) - Great insurance - Free Snacks - Nice clean office

    Cons

    - Working in WordPress - No peer review - Their code base is filled with SQL injection vulnerabilities - Low pay (good for first job if you have no experience) - Long hours (This could be avoided by hiring a developer to manage the developers and hiring project managers to manage projects) - Stressful environment (this is all agencies so not really a con of 1seo but of the industry in general)

    Advice to Management

    Use asana to manage your projects, seriously you can't use basecamp for development work. Put your codebase in private github repos, adopt standards and review each other work to check for bugs. You're really not TOO far from doing things the correct way but you create 100000% more work by not following agile methodologies.

    Pros

    The company’s growth culture is big, and emloyees are encouraged to grow with the company. Giving employees the opportunity to grow with the company keeps the work we produce relevant and competitive in the marketing space. They also cater lunch on Mondays and Fridays, very big on food.

    Cons

    It’s a very fast paced environment and there’s never a workload shortage, but if you can handle the pace and are passionate about the work you’ll go far.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lose track of the close knit culture that helped build the company.

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth in an expanding company and industry Thorough on-the-job training for entry-level positions (e.g. people right out of college) You're kept busy but not stressed as long as you manage your time Fun, generally laid-back atmosphere

    Cons

    Entry level salary might be lower than you'd like, but you do get free meals Work in content can be repetitive (writing for so many HVAC and plumbing companies can make it difficult to keep the writing fresh), though the department is always branching out into new types of content so it's rarely boring

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work, keep expanding, experimenting, and growing
