I have been working at Indeed full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Young group of people that work hard and play hard. Most are friends that hang out after work and on weekends. Feeling of being part of growing something. Product overall is good, very innovative, works well.

Cons

Short-sighted management, with strict call and activity metrics on salespeople. They take a robotic approach to selling, very scripted, very methodical... and don't allow sales people to be creative or 'go out of the box' to sell and win deals. People will make calls, just to make their call quota for the day/week... for fear of being put on a performance plan.

Advice to Management

I understand the company needs to grow after the recent acquisition and must keep close restriction on sales people's activity, but allow them to be creative, and do whatever is necessary to close deals. Make it about sales performance, not call numbers.

    Pros

    * Meetings are short and to the point.
    * They embrace new and cutting-edge technologies.
    * You work with some of the most brilliant people you have met.
    * Collaborative work environment where management seems to care about each individual greatly.
    * Free lunch. Weekly/monthly outings. Fun people to work with.

    Cons

    * Since they are smaller, opportunities to "work your way up" can be limited, but this is also a plus for them.

    I worked at Indeed as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Start working quickly - most interns deployed code in the first week
    Intern projects have front-facing impact and real-world business value
    Chill, laid-back atmosphere (not just because of Herman Miller chairs!)
    Super nice, super smart coworkers and managers
    VPs and Rony (co-founder) very accessible and helpful

    Cons

    Interns are self-employed independent contractors (may change for summer 2013)
