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

    Pros

    - Huge growth, both at the individual level and for the business - Extremely nice and caring coworkers; management uncompromisingly believes in work-life balance - Ambitious team, hard-working and talented individuals that you can learn from - A big opportunity to change the work life of billions of people, one email at a time "Low ego" is the value that I like most about Front. Everyone here is willing to set aside...

    Cons

    Even with 100 employees, this is still very much a startup, and areas of ownership are generally expanding for everyone willing to take on more. Not everyone will want to grow at such a pace.

    Pros

    Incredibly friendly, caring people who are also very good at their jobs and passionate about building an awesome company. Huge market opportunity and growing fast.

    Cons

    Fast growth means things can sometimes be hectic and there's always a ton to do. But that also creates a ton of learning opportunities and room for advancement.

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

    Pros

    Working alongside talented, experienced people with low egos and genuine desire to help one another has been great for my professional development. It also contributes to a low-stress environment, despite the collective work ethic and drive everyone maintains. Keeps a smile on my face :)

    Cons

    Far-ish commute for me, but this doesn't seem to be a widespread issue here. Would be great to have an East Bay office

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

    Pros

    When you have a founder who wants more than anything for people to be happy at work, it really comes through to the culture and workplace. The executive team is so down to earth, that I actually refer to them as "the executive team" with quotes. They don't walk around thinking they're better than everyone else. We really are one big happy family. And now for the product. I couldn't imagine working in Gmail. Front...

    Cons

    The only con is that people leave their dishes in the sink, and we often have to send reminders to clean up after yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! And keep hiring great people!

    Office location (near Caltrain) as there are not a lot of restaurants near the office and it is sketchy at night.

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

    Pros

    I've been at Front for a little while now and it's been on the whole a remarkably positive experience with a really great group of talented, kind people. In terms of engineering & product, there's a strong sensibility here of wanting to make tools that work for people instead of expecting everyone to adapt to your "one true way" of modelling the world (*cough* facebook *cough*), and I think the product has the potential...

    Cons

    There's absolutely room for a healthy work-life balance here, but you do see some people working pretty late some evenings. It's never felt expected or pressured, but there is at least some degree of culture around that. A lot of internal processes are still developing. While it does give a lot of flexibility, it can occasionally take a while to get going when working in a new area, find documentation for what you're...

    Advice to Management

    It's going to be tough keeping closeness among the teams and maintaining ways for folks to self-organize. Do your best to continue to encourage a bottom-up approach with space for ideas from more junior employees & keeping people talking across teams.

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

    Pros

    Many of my friends nowadays are Fronteers and I think it says a lot about our culture. We collaborate a lot inter and cross teams, which is awesome since you get to know people outside your direct team, what they do, and how other team work.

    Cons

    We have a big vision, and because of that, our competitors are giants in the industry, so whatever we do has to be great. There is no place for shortcuts.

    Pros

    Brilliant culture, smart and fun people, a product that works really well, and a CEO you want to work for.

    Cons

    Not a con for me, but can be for some people. We work really hard, so be prepared to do so!

    Advice to Management

    We need a strategy to continue moving upmarket and sign big name companies.
