    I have been working at Shipwire full-time

    Pros

    Enjoy the people in my department and most others. The company has potential to touch many other businesses and challenges are interesting, though they may not seem that way upon initial glance. Also, most people who work here are smart and competent.

    Now that the company has been acquired and is growing, there may be some room for growth, but previous to it, upward movement was not realistic.

    Cons

    Transparency could be improved, starting at the top (can be hard to get a straight answer to a question).

    Compensation is almost insulting for certain positions, especially considering Bay Area real estate, and numbers aren't accurately conveyed in the salaries section of Glassdoor.

    Advice to Management

    All staff meetings and higher salaries will make for more connected and higher quality employees. Do some work on company culture, too.

    I worked at Shipwire full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part people are friendly

    Cons

    Confrontational and hostile environment facilitated by upper management

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire someone to do a specific job then the details of that job should be made clearer. Provide more in depth training and an open door policy.
