    I have been working at Engage3 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Close, family-like atmosphere promotes a good work ethic and emphasizes the importance of your contribution. Good people, strong and happy culture, challenging work with lots of room for advancement and progression. Tremendous growth in the few short months I've been here. Senior management is smart, involved, and responsive. CEO Ken Ouimet is one of the smartest & friendliest people I've ever met.

    Cons

    Freedom and latitude to initiate and pursue projects can occasionally be daunting; Engage3 is definitely a place that will teach you to be a self-starter. Startup life means that infrequently, long hours might be required to deliver the goods.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere! This company's current staff consists of hardworking, creative people inspiring each other to reach company goals. If you like challenge and are creative, this place is for you! Not a good fit for lazy, apathetic people looking for a paycheck and free food.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Pros

    If you like being the smartest person in the room, look elsewhere. This company has huge momentum which creates lots of learning opportunities and gives everyone significant responsibility. You can literally see the impact we're each making.

    Cons

    With great momentum comes more work and we already have more than enough to go around. Work-life balance isn't perfect but getting better. Work hard play hard!

    Advice to Management

    We need to staff up in some key areas as we continue to bring on more customers.

    Pros

    Environment is fast-paced. Gives opportunity to learn and expand your experience

    Cons

    Fast-paced. Never a break to reward for a job well done

    Advice to Management

    reward employee for hard work done. Employees can't give 150% all of the time. People get burnt out.

    Thank you for your feedback. Start-ups are certainly fast-paced and the company can always do a better job of recognizing the people who work so hard to support the growth. Thank you for the honesty... More

    Pros

    A lean passionate team, with the ability and desire to capitalize on an incredible opportunity.

    Cons

    It's a start-up, which isn't a con, but you better bring your boots to work.

    Pros

    We're a small group of gifted can-do professionals with a laser focus on delivering value. The team is determined and extremely dedicated to each other and mutual success. I love the way we get things done. CEO is bold, creative and visionary. This all leads to an empowering environment with lots of personal growth opportunities.

    Cons

    We are in a high growth mode which means there is a lot of pressure to support clients, whatever it takes. The benefit is that we're doing it together; depending on each other and supporting each other along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to celebrate the many small wins along the way.

    Pros

    Convenient, downtown location, very close to BART and bus lines.
    Snacks and drinks in office.
    Good 'starting gig'.
    Some great coworkers.

    Cons

    Poorly managed. Poor concept. Badly run.
    Mismanaged, disorganized, and some disgruntled employees. In need of clearer direction.
    Overall idea for company will not succeed.

    Thank you for your review, especially the part about 'some great coworkers.' And sorry you had a poor experience. I'll be the first to admit that there were times between 2014-2015 when we weren't... More

    Pros

    I worked at Engage3 for almost 1 year. There are a lot of very smart and hard-working people there. As they compete for Series B funding, their priorities are shifting and that can be disruptive, but the challenges are interesting.

    Cons

    The legacy code base is a millstone. Rather than trying to keep all services running for the few current users, it would be much better to suspend services while gutting the existing architecture and replacing it with something not designed in the 90s.

    Pros

    Great experience and great work environment. Very family oriented work place.

    Cons

    Very tough industry to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on one part of the business and scale.
