Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Tango full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The product could have a potential but the CEO will ruin it

Cons

- awful employee morale with extremely high employee turnover - 6 heads of HR in the last couple of years
- constant demand to work irrational hours including mandatory weekends without lunches of dinners after the company raised $280M in funding
- below the market salaries and options - the CEO and CTO are cheap and own almost half of the company
- lack of product vision and strategy
- a third of employees are looking for other jobs

Advice to Management

Bring a new management team

    I have been working at Tango full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good pay and okay benefits. its a good field that is constantly growing so there's always a good shot at advancing forward

    Cons

    definitely long hours and can get stressful but probably similar with most start up environments

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes lines get a little blurred and after working long hours motivation certainly decreases
