    I have been working at Optoro full-time

    Pros

    The people and culture are great. Work is rewarded and recognized fairly and all employees have a work hard-play hard mentality. It is energizing being a part of Optoro and I see nothing but positive growth for the company.

    Cons

    Growing pains from startup to enterprise firm.
    Lack of important HR/operational processes in place.
    Sometimes confusion in direction of product and company vision.
    Lack of internal mobility and promotion structures.

    Advice to Management

    Growth is great--it's okay to be hands off and trust senior management to make decisions on behalf of the VPs and C-Suite. Overall though, Optoro is a great place to work and I'm proud to be a part of it. Thank you!
