    Pros

    Best products in target market. High growth potential tied to growth of e-commerce. Mission: keeping e-commerce safe. Flexible work environment that emphasizes accountability. Little office politics and friendly, dedicated colleagues.

    Cons

    Does have not resources of larger companies. Could do more (product development, marketing) with more resources.
    Flat organization is great for the right personality. Requires to be a self starter, which can be hard for someone who is used to large organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Insist that owners give up dividends for a while so that we can fund growth.

    I have been working at G2 Web Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been at G2 Web Services longer than most employees, and I've seen it grow and make tremendous strides in the services we offer. The managers are all very supportive of employees and will work with you to accommodate your life outside of work. The benefits are excellent! Management makes sure that all employees know the status of the company and what's going on, both within the company and in the industry. The work we do is very important, and everyone shows commitment to our goals and to teamwork to reach those goals.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Although I haven' been with the company long, it's apparent the company cares about their employees and customers immensely. Not only does G2 lead the way in merchant risk intelligence, but the core values are displayed in everything they do. I feel lucky to work alongside this group of people, and appreciate how well we are taken care of whether it be from our benefits or flexible hours, it has truly created a culture worth standing behind.

    Cons

    I can't think of any, currently.

    Pros

    Technical work is interesting and has socially redeeming value. Always more to do than we can get around to doing, but still maintains a good work life balance.

    Cons

    Always more work to do than we can get around to doing. 401k has good match but high fees.

    Pros

    The organization is run by good people, who care about their teams. Compensation isn't on the Amazon, Microsoft level, but is good given the company's size. Management makes a genuine effort to help people balance work and life.

    Cons

    - The code base is old and pretty creaky. - Engineering has made a decent effort at adopting agile practices, the rest of the company, not so much. - The organization is owned by a private equity company that has very definite short term priorities. This isn't a negative in an of itself, but IMO they are overly focused on short term goals at the expense of developing a long term growth plan for the organization.

    Someone has left G2 and is unhappy, unfortunately. Again, G2 regrets when someone leaves with negative feelings. We hope for the best for all former employees.

    It is unfortunate that a former employee has left us recently with negative feelings. When it is necessary to part ways, we do our best to do so with the utmost respect and well wishes for all... More

    Pros

    Very little micro-managing. Employees are left to handle their work independently and are rarely bothered by management. Super flexible. Working from home was always an option. Raises were decent.

    Cons

    I didn't like the commute to Bellevue from Seattle. I attempted to request more responsibilities on numerous occasions but none were offered.

    Advice to Management

    Overall they're doing a great job. I was a lower level employee so I think I considered things to be great because other entry level opportunities wouldn't have been this lucrative.

    Nice to hear. We hope people don't focus on "levels" though. Appreciate the comments.

    "I like the freedom to set direction"

    Pros

    I like the freedomI have to set the direction for my product. Part of this is driven by a bottom-up company culture, and part of it is because of lean resources. Regardless, it gives me a lot of leeway to come up with what I believe product strategy should be. I have to juggle a lot to get it done, but that has helped me gain a full understanding of my business.

    Cons

    Sometimes company strategy can be a little unclear. There is a financially-driven strategy and a mission-driven strategy, but more client metrics would be helpful. I can gather client feedback myself but more frequent surveys would help.

    Advice to Management

    More resources to invest in growing areas of the business.
