    Pros

    It's been clear what my responsibilities are from day one, with a ton of autonomy around how I get things done. I appreciate how flat the organization feels and how easy it is for me to get involved with problem solving across multiple teams. The Talent Team really goes out of their way to create a sense of community and to make sure that we get what we need to be top performers.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    For the size of the company and considering how much we rely on each team member, decisions really should be more collaborative.

    I have been working at The Black Tux full-time

    Pros

    - Great size and stage of company. Small enough to be nimble and not worry much about politics, large enough to avoid most of the startup chaos - Really strong culture. From the new hire onboarding program to the offsites to the emphasis on cultural values, the company does a great job ensuring that it's a good place to work. Also an overall great place for work/life balance. - High expectations. The leadership...

    Cons

    - Leadership can do a better / more intentional job about sharing strategy / prioritized initiatives / roadmap with the teams at large. - Like many startups, can be prone to chase the next shiny penny, and this lack of focus can create some thrash.
