    I worked at PageUp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some talented people within the business and at times, the culture was pretty good.

    Cons

    As the company has grown from small beginnings they have inadvertently created an 'us versus them' culture. Where the 'us' is the group who have been with the company from early days and the 'them' being anyone newer to the organisation. While some great new talent has come into the business, the majority has also left. It is evident that those who have been there from the start are treated very differently, often... getting what they what by acting like spoilt children. There is autocratic leadership from the top which caused a lot of fear, particularly in new employees.

    Advice to Management

    As one of the other reviews has said, lose the nepotism. Reward talent and not longevity or risk losing more talent. Look into why talent is leaving. It is time to recognise that people leave managers. You'll be amazed what you uncover if you look into this. Also, take on feedback in a constructive manner, don't make excuses and try to justify it. Use it to drive change.

    Pros

    There is a strong team atmosphere at PageUp. Though many employees in the US work remotely; everyone is apprised of what the team is doing. Questions are answered quickly and others are eager to help. Still a small enough company to where you can wear many hats. Use this to your advantage and you can gain experience in different roles to find the best fit.

    Cons

    -If you work in the US, be prepared for some late night calls to accommodate the team in Australia. - There are no company credit cards and expense reimbursement can take up to a month.

    Thank you, we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and some insights into the great team culture we have in the US. I am a little surprised that your expense claims are taking up to a month, so I'll be making a few enquiries with our finance team on this one.
