    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    CEO is charismatic and effective
    Sales department is efficient and adaptable
    Company is in a nascent fast-growing market
    Flatiron location is easily-accessible
    Company is growing very fast, doing lots of hiring
    Community atmosphere, social environment
    Semi-frequent developer challenges make things more interesting
    Work hours are not very demanding

    Cons

    Most engineering tasks are fundamentally uninteresting data-shepherding
    Facilities are unappealing
    Engineering management says they're interested in quality but actually rewards "quick"
    Most engineering managers are inexperienced
    Low ratio of senior to junior engineers
    Scant few experienced engineers leads to constantly having to clean up codebase
    Engineering managers are not given enough autonomy - mandates from above cripple effectiveness
    CTO is not a people person and is ultra awkward with his "attaboy" rewards

    Advice to Management

    Hire more senior people, especially more experienced managers
    Give the engineering managers the power to manage their way
    Bias rewards more on quality than on quickness
