    I have been working at Alpha full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My co-workers are smart, friendly, gritty and adventurous. There is a mission I believe in to improve how people work and how products are being built and there is a real need by large customers for our platform. Every day there is a new challenge to tackle or problem we can help solve for our clients. This job certainly isn't boring!

    Cons

    Some of the internal processes could be improved but these seem like normal startup challenges. I know management is improving on this so not much else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people! Please continue to invest in our training as it is really important.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, and a really cool product that we're building. They like to take care of us and have definitely invested in making the employee experience a positive one. I consider most of the employees here my friends, but it's not overly cliquey or too much of a "bro" culture.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains that come with a startup, but I don't really have much negative to say about the company. They've done a good job of keeping this a nice place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Thor is a monster.

    I worked at Alpha full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Super nice people and a team that was growing very fast. They are very laid back which allows for a great work life balance and had no problem with people working from home. The culture is quite good with company outings happening regularly, not to mention team lunch on Fridays. Client work is interesting and exposes you to a ton of different ideas and products that might not be in market yet.

    Cons

    In the past, senior management did not really set/enforce any structure around how work should be done and what the goals were for the company so it was very easy for teams to do the bare minimum for extended periods of time. This coupled with the nebulous (at the best of times) product vision and a penchant for leaving development goals in the hands of junior employees lent itself to a lot of frustration across... teams. When I left it seemed like this was changing for the better however.

    Advice to Management

    You need a solid product roadmap, and to really get into the nitty gritty of implementing scalable/repeatable processes.
