No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great Technology
Great Vision
Fun People to work with
Strive to do your best

Cons

Inexperience Management
Decisions come from one person with little room for feedback
No Career Path - after entry level - you are stuck in a path to no where
Internal fighting between development (engineering) and product management (business)
Everyone reports to one person -- that one person has no time to talk and eventually ignores you.

Advice to Management

If you plan to keep good people and be the BEST, then you need to start to clean house from the TOP... the people you promote to management aren't really good managers -- You provide HR applications... it's about time you develop your own HR team and create solid careers paths in development and in other areas... right now, for example, your financial development team is headed by one person and everyone reports to one person... no growth for anyone on the team -- that one person has absolute control... not the best way to run your engineering team.

    Pros

    We are building apps in the 21st century and as such want new fresh ideas. We hire smart people who have experience but can take a fresh approach - this is key to our success. The product requires collaboration across the entire company.

    Cons

    We are still in the growth mode and the work - life balance is not there yet, but it is getting better.

    Pros

    Team mentality; very positive working environment.

    Cons

    Onboarding was difficult - not a lot of structure/formality. Hard to meet/get to know coworkers. But, I think this has to do with the fact that they in such a big growth phase right now and they're trying to get procedures in place to handle this.
