    I worked at Indiegogo full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    “Empower the world to bring their ideas to life?” That’s an amazing mission. Its a lovely team of people too. New challenges on the job all the time. Most people are pretty passionate about the work. Colleagues genuinely respect and are supportive of each other. Balance in work hours is great. Company takes diversity seriously. Grown up and stable management team. Really good perks and benefits, fun office. Tasty food...

    Cons

    Company growth is solid but not explosive. So you'll learn a lot on the job, but you won't be promoted every six months like some startups. Some recent adventures into equity crowdfunding didn’t play out as expected so folks left. New plans for growth in China still ramping up. Office neighborhood is dirty, although central SF location makes commuting easy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture awesome.

    I have been working at Indiegogo full-time

    Pros

    Indiegogo has been a great place to work so far. Many teams offer work remote options, my manager has been amazing, and the benefits are fair: 401k, health stipend of $50/month, "gogobucks." My coworkers are mostly awesome. :)

    Cons

    The company itself is experiencing growing pains even though it's been around about 10 years now. There isn't much room to grow in your career at Indiegogo any longer and most of the "promotions" are given to the sales team for no explainable reason.

    Advice to Management

    Be open about where the company is heading.

    Pros

    Awesome company culture that encourages you to be adventurous in your pursuits while maintaining a goal as a person, as a team, and as a company. I've learned so much and had made great friends at the company.

    Cons

    Compensation is less than ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Indiegogo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Mission-driven company that wants to bring capital to innovators - There are employees who care about diversity and inclusion on the platform and within the company - Employees overall are friendly - Good stepping stone for an engineer - There are skilled engineers and managers who are enjoyable to work with - Engineering department makes an effort to improve processes and best practices

    Cons

    - Limited opportunities to move up into senior and leadership roles in engineering - Favouritism is quite evident - Many new product demands and verticals can have you moving from team to team each quarter (good for breadth knowledge, but not depth knowledge) - Recent layoffs were demoralizing - Disappointing that the compassion and social impact side of the platform were deprioritized - Burnout without accountability...

    I have been working at Indiegogo full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A group of caring and funny individuals, who band together toward their ideals. Charismatic CEO. Fearless leadership. Empowering group. Lives by their values (Fearlessness, Authenticity, Collaboration, Empowerment). Small enough team to cross-collaborate across teams.

    Cons

    not very flexible working arrangements (wish there was more work from home days)

    I have been working at Indiegogo full-time

    Pros

    IGG delivered on all it promised when I interviewed: - Ability to become a people manager - Significant salary bump if I performed well - Ability to grow my role and take on more responsibility Many companies promise these things when they give you an offer and do not deliver. I've been very pleasantly surprised with IGG.

    Cons

    Things are changing fast at Indiegogo. Sometimes it is difficult to get full employee buy-in on new initiatives right from the get-go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees in the loop about strategy and new initiatives early and often.

    I worked at Indiegogo full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working with smart, capable, fun, loving people. The Values system felt authentic and helped with the culture and business decisions. The product is maturing and new avenues for revenue were showing potential.

    Cons

    Not much. Would've been nice if lunch was free every day.

    Advice to Management

    If any it would be a middle management needs to be more effective, trained, or let go.

      Friendly people and fun work environment

      There are product features everyone agrees need work, particularly on mobile, but there aren't enough resources to fix them fast enough

      Pros

      Everyone at the company collectively believes in the mission and the roadmap of the future. Upper management is supportive when need be, but does not micro manage. Work life balance is a major appeal of this company.

      Cons

      There is no 401k matching program

      Advice to Management

      Continue to treat your employees as equals
