    Pros

    Most people were cool. Nice building with free daily lunch. Lots of parties if you're into that sort of thing.

    Cons

    Lack of direction from the CEO and the leadership team was clueless most of the time. Employee moral was mostly negative. FirstData acquiring the company was the beginning of the end for the company. I wouldn't be surprised if they're out of business in another year or two.

    Pros

    Gyft is an amazingly collaborative environment where team members work hard but know how to have fun. The company does a great job of creating a very fun culture. I can honestly say that I enjoy coming to work because of the environment, the people I work with, and the overall business mission statement. Lastly, being a part of First Data opens so many doors. The acquisition has really helped the company scale.

    Cons

    Going from a smaller company to a large company is a hard transition, so Gyft is still figuring out how to get more closely aligned with First Data. This is slowly but surely happening

    Questionable Leadership

    Pros

    Great Perks, office, and many of the employees are high quality and collaborative. I'm having trouble coming up with any more.

    Cons

    Tons of back office drama, questionable decisions by leadership, and backroom sabotage of others. I did a quick stint here and learned a lot of about what a dysfunctional company looks like.

    Pros

    Fast Paced Fun Teams Good Location GREAT BENEFITS

    Cons

    Culture's changing. Ever since the company that bought them out went Public, there's been a huge focus shift that killed the culture they used to have. They don't support marketing initiatives. Executives are still trying to figure out what new direction they're going in. ***Most of these issues are not directly Gyft's fault as they just don't have control of their marketing budget-- their parent company does.
