Pros

Growing company, well-positioned to change a traditional industry. Some sharp people work there.

Cons

Old-school, top-down command-and-control management structure. Some big egos at work, impatient and focused on quarterly results. There's a reason for high turnover and customer perception that the company is arrogant.

    I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Solid Management; great, dedicated staff; great culture of work hard and play hard with a slant towards community service and doing good.

    Cons

    PTO policy a little tight; some typical growing pains that they are working hard to resolve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. There is an excellent balance of long time, experienced and dedicated staff and new blood and management is doing a great job of ensuring everyone is on board and supported.

    Pros

    Awesome company culture and values. Monthly company wide birthday celebrations and people are encouraged to share their ideas and make the environment ever better to work in. This is the first time I've been with a company that the company executives sing happy anniversary to employees at company quarterly all hands. Love the people!

    Cons

    Typical pains of a fast growing company - not everything is documented.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the open door policy.
