Pros

The atmosphere at Column is fast paced and requires a great deal of self-sufficiency but this also means employees have independence in their work so long as they can produce results. The senior management is also friendly and open to new ideas, although they expect their employees to perform very well. The fact that the company is relatively small and places a large amount of responsibility in the hands of their employees allowed me to see the fruits of my labor, which was fulfilling and gave me a sense of accomplishment.

Cons

Column was stressful and erratic at times simply because the company is growing so quickly, however this allowed for creativity and problem solving abilities to thrive in this environment.

    Pros

    In my opinion, Column has one of the widest career growth opportunities. The principals of the company have an "open door" policy, which allow for an aggressive management style and a "whatever it takes" approach. HR posts all jobs internally before putting them out on external job boards. Even though Column is considered a small company, there are opportunities to transfer to other offices globally. Since I've been here I've seen people go from customer support to consulting and have also seen consultants take on various management roles.

    Cons

    Since the company is growing very fast, outdated processes and manual systems sometimes create stressful situations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster and spread your entrepreneurial spirit to the entire company to maintain vision and pace ourselves for decades to come.

    I worked at Column Technologies, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, good location, good benefits.

    Cons

    India head is not visionary. Everyone will do everything culture. Money money culture by management.

    Advice to Management

    Start trusting India employees. Salary is just not the criteria for employees but work and work environment as well.
