Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Free bagels every Wednesday
Some good people (those who don't take themselves too seriously)
Great place if you're a supercharged type-a personality
Looks good on a resume

Cons

No work/life balance
Management overly concerned with making themselves look good
Cliquish work environment
Young workforce with immature attitudes make it difficult to grow
Way to much ego and back-stabbing among middle management
Way too meeting intensive - townhalls, state of the industry, etc. - cutting into effective work time
Not very cutting edge in terms of technology (yet exclaim to be a 'technology company')
Poor training by inexperienced trainers
Poor documentation and processes - makes it difficult to pick up from where your predecessor left-off
Too much outsourcing to Costa Rica.

Advice to Management

Some people shouldn't be managers if they have no leadership experience. A manager should be available to offer advice and guidance, not just to sign your timesheet and tell you when you do something wrong. Lead with positive reinforcement rather than non-constructive criticism. If you can't be bothered, then a management role isn't for you.

    Pros

    The people you will work with at CheetahMail are some of the best in the business. The company has retained some of its original start-up feel despite being owned by Experian.

    Cons

    Experian is very tight with the purse strings and the promotions can seem almost random at times. The work and experience you will have at CheetahMail differs greatly depending on which team you are assigned to.
