I have been working at AnchorFree full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Supportive management team, good energy, interesting problems to solve. The benefits like 401k, healthcare, and stock is nice.

Cons

The company is growing so it can be tough to make your voice heard. Other than that, I would've preferred a company in San Francisco, but their location in Mountain View is nice.

    I worked at AnchorFree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Profitable company to work for
    -Flexible vacation time
    -Medical/Vision/Dental benefits
    -Friendly coworkers
    -Catered food, snacks, drinks
    -Location (close to freeway, VTA, CalTrain)

    Cons

    -No room for growth
    -No employee performance evaluations; no annual raises
    -Lack of communication between departments - no one knows who does what
    -Unorganized; No structure
    -Lack of diversity and company culture
    -The product itself has had the same problems for the past few years – very little improvement has been made...just like the company

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a reason to stay. Make them feel appreciated. Without an incentive, employees aren't driven to provide quality work – This is why the product is buggy, customers are unhappy and your best employees are leaving

    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.
