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

Pros

This company is building a killer app that may profoundly change the entire magazine industry. People here are very nice to work with, the management team does a great job to connect all departments tightly together. Work place is full of fun, the project is full of challenges but you can learn A LOT from it.

Cons

Below par compensation but have bonus plans.

Since it's a joint venture formed by other industry giants, company doesn't have full freedom to aggressively grow.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Texture full-time

    Pros

    For a publishing company, the pay and benefits are great. Just off the 101. Truly an open-door company. No problems sitting down with the CEO. John Loughlin is great: a true leader, and one of the best listeners I've ever met. A lot of the engineers are real team players, which helps make the culture warm and inviting. There is a lot of support whether you are female, disabled, or just have lower self-esteem. Just say something.

    Cons

    For a tech company, the pay and benefits are just okay. Too far to walk from Caltrain. Some of the engineers have egos that are difficult to work with, but isn't that everywhere? Not a lot of employees with publishing experience, so the publishing part needs some help.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some one-on-one time with employees. I think there are a lot of thoughts never expressed in spite of the surveys.
