Approves of CEO

Pros

Very smart people, decentralized and flat organization structure. Like a startup company with teams building out their own features like a small company.

Very customer centric

Cons

long hours, minimal yearly salary increases, no cash bonus. Software Development engineers are required to be oncall which is touch for families

Advice to Management

Offer better salary increases in yearly review. Minimize oncall with support team to be build as a standalone team for 24 hour support

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Dogs are allowed to come to the office! Very relaxed atmosphere is encouraged. Creativity and teamwork are two great focuses.

    Cons

    It's only my third day so I really can't gage any cons yet. However, I have already seen a lot of office politics that I'd rather not be a party to.
