It's a place to look forward to coming every day!

    Cons

    Not much except it can be cold in the office! (If that's the biggest complaint, I can live with it...)

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HONK Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours as I had two jobs at the time Decent pay Great 401k matching Eat Club was available

    Cons

    The company was separated into "teams," the upstairs that thought they were better than us and would ignore us and then the rest of the "downstairs" Priorities would switch from literally day to day, making the work environment very inconsistent. It seems departments and VPs were created/hired and then the next day they were fired/dissolved. Thought I was secure in my job but was let down by broken promises Gaining small customers, but losing major existing customers, which is why I was let go

    I worked at HONK Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - friendly co workers - pretty cool office - pay was decent

    Cons

    - there was no individual leading the product or company vision - management did not exist/come to work - seniority complex amongst employees more senior employees - low quality standards for software - quality of codebase and engineering best practices were not prioritized by management. - engineering team was separated from the rest of the organization. The advised way people would communicate with the engineering team triggered a pager duty alert every time. Way too much noise - management did not seem to trust the engineering team. Weekly demos were required so you could prove that you worked on something - perks were not as good as other companies. No beverages in the office, very few snacks, below par coffee machine. - no standing desks - slow internet - no performance reviews - no salary adjustments - engineers not involved in interview process. New people just show up on your team - never saw the CEO. - I was told to not make bug reports by at least two of my leads...

    I worked at HONK Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Decent Pay - Most of their staff is great & hardworking, a little too cliquey though - Cool Location

    Cons

    -They are too loyal to their oldest staff, even if you suggest a better method, they will choose that person's method over yours - Untrustworthy Management, employees should be able to talk to you about anything related to work without getting fired - They believe in speed over anything else, if you are in Product, Data or Engineering, you will learn and/or do it in all the wrong ways. Similar to what the Senior Software Engineer said below - They have recently been laying people off - Stingy with holidays

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

    Pros

    Great company with good people. Approachable executive management.

    Cons

    This place could be great, it’s filled with talented individuals that manangment are failing to use to benefit the company. Management needs to re-evaluate roles and employees resumes to make sure they are in the best place to benefit the company. The company must learn how to translate employee skills to company advancement.
