    Pros

    It's rare to find such a talented group of people coupled with a spirit of collaboration and a genuine desire to do the best work possible.

    Cons

    It has been difficult to identify an ideal business model for the various product offerings, and thusly priorities and company focus shifts somewhat erratically.

    Advice to Management

    Adequate time, money and people energy should be spent investigating potential market places ready for disruption prior to investing in major software development.

    Pros

    The product is broad and can do quite a bit. There are many internal paths one can go down and use to gain expertise in the area of Ad Tech they gravitate towards the most.

    Cons

    International nature of company is both good and bad, as different markets require different things and it can be hard to maintain a product that addresses all of them.

    I worked at Flite full-time

    Pros

    Flite cultivated a great working environment, promoted from within, and respected the work/life balance. The CEO showed genuine interest in each department, and the managers I worked under helped me to grow as an employee.

    Cons

    Certain members of the Leadership team behave in a way that alienates some of the employees. At times employee retention was a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to teams for feedback, and listen to what they say. As Flite continues to grow, make sure not to sacrifice culture.
