    I worked at Evidon full-time

    Pros

    Ghostery used to have vision and credibility. There are still a few employees around from that time but they're mostly disenfranchised. If you're an idealist who thinks you can right a sinking ship, maybe this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The leadership of this company has totally lost its way. The CTO is a bully who makes indefensible decisions both personally and professionally without any accountability. The CEO is either powerless to do anything about this or is a willing accomplice, and is without any cohesive vision about how to move forward. Anyone who points this out is labeled a problem employee and forced out. None of the architects of the soul...

    Pros

    The location is nice, but other than that, nada.

    Cons

    Hard to even know where to start... The CTO is clueless, CEO is delusional, the morale is low, prospects are dim, and the end is in sight. Management has been unable to retain any of the talent, and the current team is either the bottom of the barrel or, worse, hired buddies of CTO. Unable to understand the technologies, market, or even the basics of whats been built and its purpose. The culture reminds me of a slave...

    Lotsa luck! After this cluster, I'd be very surprised if there was a recovery. Also, don't forget to invite entire team to the wedding!

    Pros

    Great people! Only one C-Level member is legit.

    Cons

    It's amazing how only two people have successfully ruined a great product and culture.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO and CTO should resign immediately. If not the CEO (who is disingenuous) than definitely the CTO. The CTO is screwing the only employee that has gotten any type of raise.

    Pros

    Great people and talent. Kitchen is always stocked with goodies.

    Cons

    Execs are clueless to what is going on with employees and don't seem to care that they are driving talent away. Moral is down and people don't know what to expect with little information coming from the top. it's a shame because the concepts for where the company wants to go is great just that those managing everything are screwing it up.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should get better advise on how to handle the change. Everything is not OK and the sooner the blinders come off the quicker things can be addressed.

    I have been working at Evidon

    Pros

    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).

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at Evidon

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single positive aspect of working at Ghostery at the time I left. The best that I can manage is that the hours aren't bad, since everyone tries to limit their exposure to the horrible work environment, at least in technology.

    Cons

    Management appears to have been given a mandate to find a buyer, virtually all talent has left, and everyone else is looking. It is a dismal environment. The recent technology direction change is indefensible and naive, and based on the thin experience of new management personnel who are completely out of their depth. The combination of a truly abysmal management team, profligate spending and lack of technology expertise,...

    Advice to Management

    CEO: Get some outside advice, especially in the area of technology. Your own technology acumen deficiency is no excuse.

    Pros

    Great company culture, nerf guns, fridge stocked with beer, competitive benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    If you don't like to work hard and play hard, it might not be for you.

    Keep doing what you're doing!

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

    Pros

    Was nice while it lasted!

    Cons

    I totally agree with what some other people have said here. Especially about top execs LYING about how the company's doing!! For months or maybe even years before I got there the CEO said Evidon or Ghostery could be profitable at any time and the only reason we weren't is so we could keep growing. Then the story became "Ooops we grew too fast, no more cash!” Get a clue guys! The problem was with dumb products no one...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of these execs and bring in some people who know the industry! Bring in sales people who can sell stuff instead of just blaming all problems on engineering and marketing and whoever else they can!
