Pros

Excellent CEO, fun events, casual attire, young company, easy commute, good benefits, attractive office, free concert tickets, volunteer opportunities available

Cons

8:30am-5:30pm, no recognition if not in sales, poor middle managers, undefined career path, little to no useful personal development opportunities, unrewarded overtime, no work-from-home option, obvious favoritism

Advice to Management

Senior management is excellent, but middle management is seriously lacking. Middle managers pick favorites and make it obvious to everyone, so whoever is left out of that group is left to weather all of the managers' bad moods. Also, as a whole, there is little room to grow within the company unless you come in doing what you want to do, or if you come in as something other than sales and want to get into sales. Typical of most small companies, the only way to move up at all is if someone leaves/gets fired, and even then it's not likely; although promotions from within do occur, more often than not, external hires seem to take precedence. Only those well-known favorites are likely to be considered for movement into different departments. Sean has really created the foundation for a fantastic work culture and he is great, but there are weak links in the middle who ruin it for a lot of employees.

    Middle management is so horribly ineffective, inexperienced, and biased it is not even funny.
    Middle management does not stick up for their teams-them first, then team second.
    Typically hire too quickly, then realize they don't have the market or territories to support those hires.Leads to layoffs.

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

    Pros

    -very collaborative work envirornment; people want to work together for the greater good of the company; live out our values
    -transparent and approachable senior leaders; want feedback and respond to it
    -service oriented-for our customers, members and community
    -ability to create and make something your own; get in on the ground floor
    -willingness to try new ways and not always do something b/c that's the way it's always been
    -passionate group of Snaggers

    Cons

    -sometimes move a bit too fast on things; on the flip side when a mistake is made, it's owned and corrected (part of a high growth company though)
