I worked at AnchorFree full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Full kitchen. Nice Coworkers. Flexible schedule. Passionate CEO.

Cons

Lack of professionalism by marketing manager. Anger management issues.
Certain manager lacks basic human management skills.
Very poor training if any at all.
Management make false career promises to lure cheap labor.
Corporate atmosphere is horrible although they do try to make a random act of kindness once in a blue moon.

Advice to Management

Respect employees and treat them with at least some respect.

    I have been working at AnchorFree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The companies overall product is interesting. Privacy and security is a real concern for many both here in the US and abroad.

    Cons

    No true vision and direction. A majority of the users non-US with constant fires being extinguished when our product is blocked. The long term goal isn't clear to anyone.

    My major issue is that no one internally knows what the other person is doing. Individual projects are done secretly, development of products or metrics are months if not years behind. Management is overly aggressive with out providing the tools or the man power needed. Employee retention is poor and medical benefits are horrendous.

    Advice to Management

    Smile a little. Treat your employees better we are replaceable but there's no need to make us feel that way. We can always find work elsewhere.

    I worked at AnchorFree full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Catered food, nice coworkers and good office location.

    Cons

    I worked for Anchorfree for nearly 1 year. Shifted focus constantly and changed roles on a whim. Revenue focused while not focusing on improving the product. Check the reviews on various app stores and you'll see what I mean.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees feeling valuable. Growing quickly doesn't mean success when user retention is so poor.
