    Pros

    We have flexible hours and for the most part, people really care about their co-workers. Most people are eager to do good work and it is very collaborative.

    Cons

    Turnover among sales effects everyone. You have to be a joiner to enjoy it - its not the type of place where you will be happy if you want to just come in, get your work done and go home.

    Advice to Management

    I believe management is on the right track but the lack of communication really effects moral at times. There are many very loyal employees and if you kept them in the know, they would continue to follow.

    Pros

    I find that the company goes out of its way to make sure that all of its employees know that they are appreciated and valued.

    Cons

    No real downside. They compensation is good and they frequently surprise the staff with added value and appreciation for company milestones.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Smart people. Willing to spend money to make money. Also a no ce group of people. The recognition program is very cool. If you are smart and really self motivated you could do well here.

    Cons

    This is a company that knows how important it is to look like they have a great culture... So take the best place to work awards and hype here with a BIG grain of salt.

    Very little strategy/plan coming from the exec. level. No real playbook here for sales, marketing or product. Sales comp is a mess.

    Those in charge do not share information or solicit the opinion of the rank and file. This creates a big disconnect from the top. Lack of strategy, roadmap or any goals apart from revenue goals. That hurts at every level.

    Advice to Management

    Be less arrogant and more inclusive. Train new execs on people skills or just hire better.

    Pros

    Great recognition program - works great for all employees worldwide. Most important value derived: Teamwork and hustle throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Opportunity for career advancement could be better. That said, the company is growing and this opens up new possibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the course. Don't go public. Enjoy the value of a private, entrepreneurial thought leadership position.

    Pros

    I've changed careers more than a few times, but once I landed at Globoforce, I found home. The people are genius, but also kind and generous with their time and talents. The mission of the organization - to make work better for everyone around the world through the power of thanks - is a great reason to spring out of bed in the morning. I have the opportunity to do what I love and do it well, every day.

    Cons

    Very fast paced. You have to be able to move fast, too, to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the spirit with which Globoforce was founded as we grow.

    Pros

    The best culture and overall working experience I've ever had! This company truly practices what they preach. How could you not love to work for a company that specializes in employee appreciation.

    Cons

    I still have not found anything that I would consider a flaw. My commute is the worst part, but very worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take your foot off the gas. This company is entirely capable and deserving of taking over the majority of the rewards & recognition market.
