    I worked at Gigya full-time

    Pros

    Great employees. As with most companies, you have great employees. Very friendly.

    Cons

    Bad Management. Seems like you had technical people , that became managers. No people skills, no plans. Good old boys club, especially in sales. Pay is less than other companies. Although they think pay is competitive, its not. You can find better pay at other companies. I left on my own, and was amazed what offers I got else where.

    Advice to Management

    Can't lead by threats.. Lead by example. Managements have to go out and

    I worked at Gigya full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I greatly enjoyed my two years at Gigya. I think the executive team is very involved and has a good pulse on the market and the employee base. The culture is truly 'One Gigya' where you can always get help when you need it. The team atmosphere at the company is excellent as everyone really does want to make the company better. I believe there product is positioned well in a nascent market, and I felt that they truly were the market leaders in this space. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next two years with Gigya!

    Cons

    If I loved it so much, why did I leave? For me, there just wasn't a great fit for what I like to do. Since the product is a Customer Identity and Access Management solution, it does require the prospects to see the value, and it is not as easy as some of the other industries out there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep educating the market on the value of a CIAM solution, and continue to put the Customer First and I think great things will happen for Gigya.

    I worked at Gigya full-time

    Pros

    Good space, but find a better employer in the same space

    Cons

    Self centered exec team, you will gain very little
    Lack of transparency
    High attrition - ask for the average tenure of employees
    Nepotism, hard to believe how some people made it to management
    No concept of diversity
    UK team is good, US team average; Services team is great.

    Advice to Management

    Kitchen stocked with unhealthy food is not the only factor in keeping employees, they are humans and deserve to treated with respect.
