I have been working at Auction.com full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Tremendous growth and a huge market
Nationwide presence (offices in Irvine, Silicon Valley, Dallas, Miami, Manhattan...)
Pre-IPO
Significant talent base
Significant upgrade in training, benefits, charity work, etc... in the past 12 months
Scale of a large company ($200M+ in Revenue), with some of the nimbleness of a smaller organizations
International presence

Cons

Recent downsizing and layoffs have affected morale
Significant growth caused hiring growth and I think the plan was a little short-sided

Advice to Management

Continue to make the hard decisions to get us ready for post-IPO world
Emphasize transparency and meritocracy

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Auction.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My boss was the very best. Extremely knowledgable and helpful. Company has a good concept.

    Cons

    Completely disfuntional organization. Whatever you are promised at hire date will be taken away from you. Your title, salary, your dignity. Essentially you have every employee going in a different direction. Try to make friends with HR and get a good attorney ahead of time. You will need it.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your corporate culture, your IPO depends on it.
