    I worked at Scytl full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    change the world by improving democracy! actually no you won't

    Cons

    There is no product and there is no market. You can't sell the same election software to different countries because voting is different everywhere. Scytl burned $100m of VC money to find this out. It will close down soon so don't work here

    Advice to Management

    if you are going to waste investors money then at least be nice to your employees while you do it!!
