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.

    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.

    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.
