I worked at Picaboo full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Employee! They work really hard, they treat Picaboo like their own company and everyone tries to go over and beyond for customers and coworkers.

Cons

Co - CEOs. It's a joke. They have no idea what they are doing. They have no experience. They encourage the environment of gossiping, favoritism, firing anyone who do not agree with them. They should get award for micro managers. It's a toxic environment. Run before you interview.

Advice to Management

Listen to the talent you hire. Stop treating employees like slave and peons. Stop micro managing. Learn to lead and manage people and treat everyone like human.

    I worked at Picaboo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Progressive, dynamic environment, great business structure and amazing owners/upper management. Accommodating and considerate human resources. Decent starting pay for lower level positions (but no raises to speak of), benefits, and relatively flexible scheduling. Nice location and generally fun environment (if you like playing games with your co-workers, you'll like it here).

    Cons

    A very experimental/start up vibe for a company which is not a start up any longer. The biggest con is that it's difficult to move up within the company if you start at bottom tiers, unless you are a tech wiz or have marketing/business experience and a degree from a reputable college. That said, I've known people they place in supervisory or lead positions in customer service who lack the education and/or experience to be great leaders (being assertive and bullish does not a great manager make!).

    The environment can also be extremely stressful if you decide to work in their customer service. Expect mandatory overtime and working through all holidays without much in terms of a raise (but you get OT and they'll say that's a perk). Also, you won't learn much that you can take with you to another job - it's essentially a call center.
