    I have been working at FreeWheel

    Pros

    Very collaborative. I sit next to the co-founder of the company. Extremely low turnover rate ~ 2%. Emphasis on growth towards higher ranks from within the company Comcast throwing in a lot of money to help them grow.

    Cons

    After acquistion by Comcast, not sure how it would evolve in future.

    I have been working at FreeWheel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large Company. Looks fantastic on a revenue. Pay is average but perks are definitely better than start ups.

    Cons

    Limited communication related to overall career path and growth. Senior management and heads of some departments seem to ignore employee requests related to career paths and fair compensation. Lots of people have left and are looking to leave.

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

    Pros

    Freewheel has the best of both—a start up culture and a big brand name like Comcast. In this industry, reach, reliability, results, innovation, inclusion, velocity and awesome wins. We have all of these. If that’s you’re style, you’ll thrive here.

    Cons

    Like any company/job, there are things that aren’t for everyone. There are growing pains with companies growing at this pace.

    Advice to Management

    Feeling optimistic about the clear direction, our present opportunity and future. Please keep telling our story through town halls, newsletters, leadership emails and intranet. Knowledge and communication is key!

      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      This company is a corporate Bully and treats its employees disgracefully. It’s a dinosaur in all areas and is dying in the market with customers churning and a mass exodus given the toxic culture and blame culture. There are no pros so avoid. Merger with CTS is a train crash that’s off the rails with people leaving.

      Cons

      Human Remains HR are as bad as the poor excuse for leadership who have no idea what they are doing. So HR are simply slaves and bouncers implementing bad leadership from the top down.. they should all leave ...coming up to 20 good talented people have left this year! And more to come. It’s a small industry so work gets around on how they treat people!

      Advice to Management

      The management need to go. it’s the only way to stop the rot!! The rot starts at the top and continues to shower down... last one out turn the lights out!
