Pros

A meritocracy. If you work hard and add value, it's absolutely recognized.
Pretty darn fun. It's intense but folks have a good sense of humor and perspective.
We do amazing team building events: white water rafting and rally car racing.
It's a true learning organization. We encourage personal and professional development.
We still have catered lunches 3 days a week. Stocked fridge and kitchen.
Our quarterly team T-shirts are sick.

Cons

You really need to be committed or you won't enjoy yourself.

Advice to Management

Lease an extremely large building next time we move.

    Pros

    Badgeville is a great place to work. The management team, despite being incredibly busy, always makes sure every employee feels like a part of the team. While the team comes from diverse backgrounds ranging from former managers of loyalty programs at major credit card companies, to PhDs in physics, to lecturing anthropologists, everyone has their place and works toward a common goal. There are many reasons to be motivated on a daily basis, and most employees, if not all employees, are happy to go the extra mile to help out their team members. It's also really rewarding to be part of a fast growing, and so far very successful startup, and to experience what it's like to work together to get deals closed and built a truly innovative SaaS product with an impressive and growing list of clients from around the world.

    Cons

    Like any startup, you're expected to (or just have to) work fairly long hours to get your job done. It honestly doesn't seem like you're working that long because it's fun, interesting work, but for some people with families it does require more time, then, say working a 9-5 job that you can be done with when you go home for the day. If you want an extremely structured (ie "big company") environment, then this is probably not a place you would want to work. However, it's actually fairly structured for a startup environment, with more processes and procedures being put in place as the company grows.

    Advice to Management

    The most important thing is to not lose the spirit of excitement and fun that makes Badgeville a unique and wonderful place to work, whether we have 10 employees, 35 employees or 100 employees. As long as that team feeling is still around, and we keep hiring most intelligent and creative people to be part of our team, the company will continue to be a great place to work.

    Pros

    At badgeville, you are not alone shaping the company in how you perform your immediate responsibilities, but you're also offering feedback on all aspects of the business. In addition, many people join a company and find that within months they're expected to manage several new hires.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Unclear job description.
    Low pay.
    Limited credibility.

    Advice to Management

    If the coworkers have never spent time at a big company, they may have never been taught how "real" companies do things.
