I have been working at Signpost full-time (More than a year)

Pros

My many unrealistic goals in finding a new startup, all of which were met:

Tech
o A mature, experienced, gelled tech team with good communication skills.
o Broad full-stack opportunities to learn new technologies, do big things and take ownership.
o Top-of-the-line professional tools and processes (code reviews, continuous integration, deployment automation, etc)
o Passes the (modernized) Spolsky Test and Jeff Atwood's Programer Bill of Rights.
o Trustworthy and technologically adept leadership.
o Tolerant of remote employees and flexible for working at home periodically

Biz
o Get-it-done startup culture but with above average compensation and a highly professional environment.
o A business model that doesn't need virality to succeed.
o Already making money with a solid sales team.
o Solid executive leadership with benign, helpful investors.
o Transparent, inclusive decision-making and information dissemination.
o Don't be evil.

Cons

Everything on my "cons" list from a year ago has been fixed and then some. Same for 6 months ago and I expect that to continue. The main pain point right now is that there's so much we want to do and don't have enough tech resources.

Advice to Management

Keep doing exactly what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great company that is always updating and changing their product. A lot of room for growth if you are a hard worker and a top performer. Really good training program for those that have little to no sales experience. Also really good culture/environment. Highly reward high performance and hard workers.

    Cons

    Intense job that requires working hard and making a lot of calls. May not be fitting for people that are a little lazy or uncomfortable getting outside of their comfort zone.

    I have been working at Signpost full-time

    Pros

    The mission of helping local businesses and the people I'm working with at Signpost make it that I go to work excited every day. Everybody here has a voice and can have an impact on this growing business if you take charge.

    Cons

    It's an evolving startup with an ambitious vision so you'll need to be prepared for unfinished products and processes, and as this is being addressed there may be significant changes from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    The Signpost team spirit is a great asset. Continue to maintain and enhance this across offices as the team grows.
