    I worked at Khoros full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Downtown office with parking. - Some of the people who work there are creative, collaborative, and smart. - Amazing SXSW parties. - 100% covered health insurance. - Free lunch 4 days a week & snacks.

    Cons

    - The politics and gossip here are insane. In general, anyone in a management role is way more focused on managing up then they are helping grow and support the team they manage. - Middle management is a joke, personally speaking, my manager had no experience in leading (director level) and could care less about employee growth.

    Pros

    Smart people. Strong products. A lot of deep industry knowledge.

    Cons
