    I worked at Evidon for less than a year

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    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!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing and creating a positive environment

    I worked at Evidon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Evidon raised the bar in what to expect out of work place; the leadership never made concessions in employee benefits and you always felt valued. The right people were put in place and the dev team had no turnover which is rare for tech. The culture, CEO and leadership made it a place you wanted to be.

    Cons

    Open, collaborative work environments can add noise to the place.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing....the leadership always made sure the employees felt heard, and valued. Crownpeak recently acquired the company and the energy and momentum continues....

    Pros

    Great place to work. Wonderful people.

    Cons

    Management wasn't sure what they wanted. Tried to build up processes to the point of being waterfall with scrums but what they really wanted was more of a start-up move fast try tons of things. When the going got tuff they laid off everyone instead of fixing problems.

    I have been working at Evidon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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...

    Advice to Management

    Mostly, keep doing what you've been doing: - Continue to find and maintain the balance between focus and agility. - Continue to attract, hire, develop and retain top talent.

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    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!

    Advice to Management

    Continue galvanizing the company around a common vision Keep looking for ways to keep culture strong Develop and invest in the talent already on board

    Pros

    Challenging and collaborative team environment. Intuitive products. Competitive pay and great benefits. Amazing corporate culture. Lots of free food & drink. Fun corporate events.

    Cons

    Seems like the company has worked out most of its growing pains over the past few months, but only time will tell.

    I have been working at Evidon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    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...

    Pros

    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...

    Cons

    Not so many cons, now that the true source of many problems has been removed.

    I have been working at Evidon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    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,...

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Hear and LISTEN your team in order to make the right decision. Overall, don’t slow down.
