Pros

Some of the employees were fun to work with (non-management). Some people would be close and go out after work and socialize.

Cons

Awful leadership, each member of management will act like they care about the company and its employees; but behind closed doors they genuinely don't care. Constantly lied to about how much you were worth in the market. Well below-average salary, below average benefits. Very long hours for some departments. Claim innovation, but are in fact desperately lacking due to zero product leadership. Claim to be a tech company, yet doesn't know the difference from a web developer and a software developer.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees what they deserve. Get REAL product leadership and vision. Hire people for their talent and skills, not their ability to 'fit in'.

    Pros

    Great benefits - 401K matching, free snacks and sodas, bagel Thursdays and even more coming!

    People are warm, helpful and they have integrity, it's not cutthroat and passive aggressive like many companies can be.

    It is extremely diverse - there are people from all walks of life in all departments.

    Great work-life balance

    Everyone you work with is smart and it's a small enough company that it's too visible not to pull your weight and be a team player

    Cons

    This is really only relevant for people who like working at big companies - there isn't a lot of hierarchy, so everyone has a voice versus only certain titles having one as it is a very friendly and collaborative environment. If you are looking to come in and call the shots without input and consideration for all levels of the company, it might not be a good fit for you

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the empathetic leadership and clear business direction, and keep measuring employee engagement, it's working!
