I have been working at Wildfire Interactive full-time

Pros

* lovely, motivated, hard-working, and kind individuals.
* extremely collaborative environment
* awesome example of leadership and professionalism found in our CEO
* exciting time/place to work in the Social space
* Gorgeous office setting
* Snacks/Perks are decent
* Co-workers quickly become friends

Cons

* atmosphere can become too collegiate (only occasionally!)
* I sometimes wish managers took more of a hands on approach. I appreciate being respected enough to do my own thing, but sometimes guidance is helpful.
* sometimes we run out of Diet Coke
* as we've grown, overall communication from the top down has become a little less transparent (understandable)
* tedious commute from SF

Advice to Management

Work actively to improve communication with your team/those underneath you. This will be crucial as we officially transition from a "late-stage start-up" into a larger company.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Wildfire Interactive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Constant opportunities to learn; within and outside of my department. Smart, fun-loving people. Victoria Ransom is an incredible CEO, with a great vision and honest leadership. Management listens. Dynamic environment

    Cons

    Our growth explosion has certainly caused some challenges, so for those who don't operate well in ambiguity this may not be the place for you. Large, but still has some of the issues of a smaller start up in terms of organization, communication, and hiring qualified management.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be uncompromising in the talent we hire. Especially when it comes to individuals who have exhibited both high mental aptitude and a track record of hard work.

    Pros

    The people here are really fun and really drive. The atmosphere is great. It's a super exciting time right now.

    Cons

    There are definitely some growing pains. A solid amount of management problems (in terms of who they are and how inexperienced they are).

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent.
