    I worked at FreeWheel full-time

    Pros

    The work environment is really nice and I enjoyed working with amazing people. There is a good balance between personal life and professional life with good perks. Freewheel is a growing company with investment in technology.

    Cons

    The company has evolved a lot with new acquisitions but there is a lack of plans to evolve in the company. There is a lot of progress to do in management.

    I have been working at FreeWheel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    FreeWheel has a very welcoming environment that allows new-hires to immediately feel they've been here for years. The leadership team embodies this welcoming nature as well. A very work hard, play hard atmosphere.

    Cons

    Integration with Comcast IT was difficult when first getting started

    Pros

    1. Big new office 2. Same benefits as Comcast, compared with other small startups

    Cons

    Career side: 1. Less career growth, as other review mentioned, the promotion path is weird. Some people who contributed less but has better relationship with the managers are promoted faster than those who work hard 2. Naive management skills, some managers have less experience how to build a team. And there are too many managers than the people who actual finished the tasks. 3. Too many meetings, sometimes a trivial...

    Be bold and fire some bad apples, reduce the verbose meetings and focus on the task instead of the bragging
