    I worked at Identified full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing, the catered lunches were incredible, and every team lead and boss was incredibly personable and easy to work with. The Co-CEOs were accessible as well.

    Cons

    No cons, really. Everyone was incredibly easy to work with, and I was able to do my job well thanks to the amount of freedom I was given.

    Advice to Management

    More bonuses! But really, I have no room to complain.

    I have been working at Identified full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The founders and the team they've assembled are terrific, extremely bright, driven and looking to make a difference in the world. Everyone has a say in how things are done and is trusted to know their business. Continual learning and growth is highly encouraged. The culture is really fun and people truly enjoy working together.

    Cons

    Like other startups, there is a fast paced environment. We don't have the same long term job security that people have at a big, slow moving company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate the vision as it evolves.

    I have been working at Identified full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super smart team that doesn't take its self too seriously–but are invested the product and one another. It's fun to be here, even when there's a lot to do.
    Dynamic work environment.
    Opportunities for advancement.
    Plenty of perks–great office and location, free catered lunches.

    Cons

    Growing pains, dynamic work environment–Identified is still a start up (and shouldn't be afraid to act like it).

    Advice to Management

    There's been improvement in communication between product and business teams, but everyone would benefit from increased transparency on strategic decisions, etc.

    Pros

    The office location is very convenient, a lot of smart people work there and there is a great company culture where everyone is willing to help and have fun. It feels good to come work at Identified.

    Cons

    The company could act more like a startup. Sales and Engineers don't communicate a lot, that could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Move the Engineers closer to the Sales?

    I have been working at Identified full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some employees are talented. Free lunch is provided daily. The office is very close to the train station. Office is very spacious.

    Cons

    Most employees are not high-caliber. There is a lot of talk about how great the product will be but there is no evidence that it is true.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about creating a great product, get your hands dirty and make it happen.

    Pros

    The people are fun. I personally think that to be able to get stuff done at work, you have to know that you're working with not only very talented individuals, but also knows how to have fun. Everything else would follow.

    Cons

    There is not enough office space at the moment because of the rapid growth that the company is undergoing. When you look at it that way, it's probably not much of a downside.
