I worked at GovDelivery full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The product is great and works well. They have a niche market.

Cons

mid-sr level management lacks management skills. I wasn't allowed to do what I was hired for and when I suggested new ideas, I was shot down and then let go for no reason. My manager didn't know how to manage people very well.

Advice to Management

Take some management seminars and communicate with your employees to try to help them before just pulling the plug.

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

    Pros

    Great success with Gov in USA and NW Europe....strong engineering and marketing....recent focus on sales is paying off. Customer service is very strong.

    Cons

    Too few people know about the company or its footprint. With over 500 customers including some of the most significant federal organizations, the company should move from the "best kept secret" to "look at us"

    Advice to Management

    Strive for simplicity

    I have been working at GovDelivery full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great service for city and county governments, federal agencies, helps citizens stay connected with city hall and know more about what's happening.

    Cons

    Excessive turnover is disconcerting to current employees in all depts. Sudden management decisions and changes are often made without explanation.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid micromanagement. Give direction and then stand back and let people do their jobs.
