Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

Absolutely love this company! Small tech start up so you really get to know everyone in the company and develop great work relationships. Everyone was extremely helpful and taught me a lot during my summer internship. The CEO, CPO, and COO were always available and very kind people. Outstanding company to work for!
Not sure what it’s like now since they were acquired by Crownpeak but when I was there it was fantastic. I’m sure it’s still great!Continue reading

For me it always starts with the people, and the people I work with (and for) at Ghostery are the real deal -- passionate, smart, dedicated and fun. Now, mix in a suite of products that meet real needs in an under served market, and you have the potential for an explosive future. Ghostery is a fun place to be, a great place to contribute and learn, and has a tremendous upside in terms of the future.
1) Co-Location. Ideally this great team would all be co-located, and although it has gotten and continues to get better, we still sometimes struggle with communication between offices. 2) There are so many opportunities to improve and build upon our products, that focus has been a challenge. But a recently expanded Product Management team, along with a cohesive executive management team, are working towards getting us the ability to focus, while still being able to adjust to what the market and our users tell us every day.Continue reading

In addition to all the fully stocked kitchen, fun social events and ping pong table, I believe upper management has pulled off what most companies never have the balls to achieve. They took what was already a successful privacy compliance business and created an Enterprise SaaS business that is starting to take off. I’ve noticed that both the CEO and CTO have received some negative comments in other reviews. Frankly, I give the CEO a lot of credit for being brave enough to get the right team in place. The Exec team has a vision and now, due to some very recent changes. I think we are only going to get stronger as a company. To add to that, Warburg is very supportive both financially and strategically. Now that the lies and the mind games from the CTO are gone, it’s like the sun has come out and things are going to get going.
CEO has made some bad moves, especially putting up with the BS from the former CTO. Can still be a challenge to create a consistent culture between NYC and SLC. SLC office almost all guys, NYC office more diverse.Continue reading

Great people and modern tech. Great snacks and drinks in the kitchen. Seriously, I can't say enough about the kitchen. The kitchen alone is reason enough to work here. I think I saw coconut milk in there yesterday. I had pop tarts for breakfast, thanks Ghostery! The company has recently made some culture changes which will make this place even better. It's a wonderful place to work if you're a programmer.
I'm still waiting for a ping pong table. I feel like it will be here soon. I'm also still waiting for more agile development, but this is already in the works. There isn't any alcohol in the Salt Lake City fridge which I guess makes sense because everyone drives to work. However, when they fly you out to NYC get ready for some fun times IN the office.Continue reading

There have been many many changes within the company and I can honestly say "this is the best company to now work for" The former CTO and a few other employees that made poor decisions and ignored employees with true talent, has been removed from the company. This was the best decision Ghostery could have made. The office functions now and it is enjoyable to come to work! I can see that Executives (CEO) in the company really do care about the employees here and in the other offices. (there is even a rec room in the works) (Fully stocked fridge) (Great leaders are able to shine) The negative comments on here were somewhat accurate and all boiled down to a now "previous employee". Great move guys!!!!!!!
All of the cons have been eliminatedContinue reading

With the removal of a problematic "C" level exec, the immediate shift towards a more collaborative and enjoyable work environment is a welcome change. The kitchen is a really nice perk, and I heard a Rec Room is on its way...Foosball anyone? A lot of really talented programmers here. The former CTO did recruit several people he knew from previous employment...but they (unlike him) are no joke. Don't let previous comments about that scare you off. The office environment is immensely improved and I think in a very short time you will see even more collaboration and talent that may have been previously overlooked or squashed, start to show.
Not so many cons, now that the true source of many problems has been removed.Continue reading

I joined Ghostery a few months ago in their new SLC office. Unlimited snacks and drinks, decent equipment, tech side management are all current or former coders and have a clue, good location, not much to complain about. Hours so far have been pretty reasonable although we’ve had a couple pushes that involved weekends.
They are phasing out most open source projects so if that’s your thing then this won’t be the place for you. I haven’t been to the NYC office but I’ve heard they aren’t happy with the tech jobs moving to SLC which probably explains some of the other reviews I’ve read here. Vacation not great compared to other companies in the area (3 weeks).Continue reading

Ghostery has figured out how to do agile software development effectively. They make an effort to make it a fun and interesting place to work...and generally succeed. They are a big player in the small privacy niche. They understand that great software development takes time, and they plan that into their schedules. They are very respectful of work/life balance. I have worked very little overtime since I've been there, and there was no pressure to do so. In fact, they were very appreciative.
Still a fairly small company and are affected by small ups and downs. Need to keep up with the market trends in growing technical salaries.Continue reading

Growing very fast as of 12/14. Good working hours, there seems to be a work-hard, play-hard attitude. The products are in high demand. Nicely stocked kitchen, nurf gun wars, open office environment. Flexible with work from home when needed. (I would say that 5 star review is pretty accurate).
Lots and lots of changes, one can't help but feel nervous at times. Some of the GUI's for products aren't very pretty, but the company is working on upgrading them. Too many different technologies, company is working on fixing that as well.

Tight knit community in both core offices Culture of getting your job done while having fun Company is still at a size where you will take on a lot of diverse responsibilities but also have the opportunity to grow with your experience
Hard to find one - not a con, but just be prepared to contribute! There is no room at this company for coasters or freeloaders - this is a high performing team!Continue reading
