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

Pros

Terrific startup in a high growth mode -- plenty of open positions in all departments. Unique and patented technology that's highly differentiated from the competition's. Amazingly bright developers who continuously innovate. Very relaxed work environment -- it's fun to be at the headquarters office.

Cons

Young startup without fully fleshed processes, so people have to step up and take initiative. Small office space that divides employees into two separate suites on different floors.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on execution and on driving growth.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ensighten full-time

    Pros

    The UK team, specifically in engineering, were some of the most genuine, intelligent and all-round nicest people you could hope to work with.
    Some of the products are very good

    Cons

    Upper management lacked a clear vision and wouls regularly would shift their focus to something else.
    Lots of cuts (even when it was promised there would be no more)

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with your employees (we didn't hear from the CEO for over 6 months)

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ensighten full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The UK team (particularly engineering) are the most talented, friendly people I've worked with. I would work with them again in a heartbeat.
    - Culture in the London office is great.
    - There are lots of interesting engineering challenges.
    - It makes other companies look better by comparison.

    Cons

    - The main product is a smorgasbord of technical debt and poorly implemented new features.
    - The CTO's main qualification appears to be 'owns a computer'.
    - The CEO hasn't been heard from in many, many months.
    - Mass firings every six months or so. Always with the assurance that it's the last time because they've righted the ship this time.
    - Lots of people have resigned without being replaced, leaving a skeleton of a product team and no HR department in some offices.
    - If you need as much as a stapler, you need to ask the CFO directly. He will refuse.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on the stuff that works (DI, Pulse) and champion it.
    - Communicate with your employees. Not business talk and meaningless buzzwords, real words that humans would actually say. Don't disappear for months when things get tough.
    - Seek new employment. I hear McDonalds are hiring.
