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

    Pros

    - Solid team and product in an exciting space with a long runway
    - After (what I've heard as multiple pivots in its early days), the vision and execution toward it has been laser focussed in the year. IMO - a key strength for any company, especially a startup
    - Some very smart and hardworking engineers that have built up a solid platform and some great IP!
    - Smart, focused, humble, high EQ CEO has assembled a solid executive team since he has taken over with clear goals that are now being achieved - which is the biggest testament to his and company's success
    - Great work-life balance. Caring and welcoming work-place

    Cons

    - Exciting and new space with a lot of buzz, so not all prospects/customers really understand how to use the product (especially models/AI/ML pieces) to get to their goals
    - Important to continue to ruthlessly prioritize ORG, GTM strategy and product based on real $$

    Advice to Management

    Continue to quickly grow strong performers and shed non-performers/serial 'quota-missers' as was recently done, even if it means horrible glassdoor reviews!

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

    Pros

    I have only been at EverString for a short while, but I have nothing but great things to say about this company already. From the moment I started, I was greeted with warm welcomes and provided the necessary tools/resources to execute my job to the best of my abilities.

    Since being here, I have already seen some of my co-workers get promoted within their department or take on new leadership roles within other departments at EverString. Compensation is fair, and the company has a great policy for their workers regarding any sick, vacation, or personal time needed out of the office.

    I am not only excited about my future endeavors here but the company's overall vision/goal, as well. We all preach "One team, One goal" here, and I would be more than willing to go out of my way to help anyone that works for EverString or has an affiliation with the company, for any reason.

    Cons

    As of now, I have nothing negative to say about this company. The only thing is in the future, I feel we might need more space due to expansion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The leadership and communication at the company are awesome, and I enjoy every day that I come into work.

    I worked at EverString full-time

    Pros

    Engg team is hardworking, I guess they go home only to sleep for 4-5 hours.

    Cons

    Vision and priorities of the company change almost every three to four weeks. They pressurize all engineers like anything by planning overloaded iterations. Lay-offs are like yearly pilgrimage in December! Sales and marketing folks are non-seasoned, cannot close enough deals to hit quarterly targets. Data quality is horrible. In short this company is a joke, beware! Don't even waste a short stint of your career here.

    Advice to Management

    Get the right vision. Get smart and intelligent sales and marketing folks.

    I worked at EverString full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Lower level management is kind, inexperienced, yet wanting/needing a good mentor.

    Cons

    - Corrupted executive team!
    - No transparency.
    - Blame their low-level employees for their inadequacies.
    - High turnover - If you're a competitor, don't bother. EverString is not worth your time.
    - Don't recruit anyone from mid-level to upper management. You'll have a handful of incompetents.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can save you now! EverString will go down in history as Silicon Valley as a case study of "what NOT TO DO with $70M of VC's money."

    Many of the people are great, work hard and try to support one another.

    Sell the business and save as many jobs as possible. All hope is lost.
