Pros

The upsides to working at SoundBite are the potential for company growth, interesting products & technology, and the very smart, competent, and friendly co-workers. Also, there is generally a very reasonable respect for family issues and work/life balance. There is usually no pressure to work long hours or weekends, aside from normal crunch time that arises anywhere.

Cons

No ESPP, no employer contributions to 401(k), secretive management style of senior management, weak performance review process, ill-defined bonus plans. This company has been around a while, so there is no longer the "fire" that you see behind a young startup (some may consider that a positive, I suppose).

Advice to Management

Look for ways to involve/inform employees beyond the 2-3 company meetings/year.
