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

Pros

$100/mon for food in their cafe
Clean facility
Medical is a decent price and 401k is awesome. Match up to $6000

Cons

Cafe food is horrible.
Management does not have a clear understanding how to run a business. Many projects have extreme timelines with no thought about consequences. The message i here is, do what i told you then we will worry about it later. Let's just get it out as quick as possible.

As for career growth, the only growth is if you come in from the outside, get a better titled then jump ship. Internal growth is too tough. You get the chance to work for another department off the phones for 6 months then you are sent back, sometimes with no goals and then managed out.

Advice to Management

Take you time, think things out and be thorough. Good ideas take time to brew.

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

    Pros

    Great facility, $100 in money towards food and gym. Most of the people are great to work with and share similar dissatisfaction with the way they are managed.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic for such a small development shop. So many 'departments' created that cause infighting and delay after delay during the project cycle. All that matters to these departments is the politics. So long as each department can collect supporting metrics to point the finger elsewhere, they are happy. It's rare to see honest teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the organization. A flatter org chart would give everyone more influence and encourage people to work together instead of hiding in their silos behind metrics.
