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

    Pros

    Great product and awesome culture. As exciting as the space is with so much predicted growth in the coming years, it's really the people that make this an awesome place to work. Everyone is extremely courteous to one another and easy to get along with.

    Additionally from my experience thus far, management here is top notch. They're always open to lending a helping hand and very open about sharing sales goals and expectations.

    My team has also proven to be one of the most collaborative environments I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. We're constantly sharing best practices and experimenting with new ideas. There's truly never a dull day at work. I can't believe it's already been 6 months with the company. Time has really been flying by lately.

    Startups are always a toss-up and tumultuous by nature but it's definitely a breath of fresh air to be a part of one that has such a positive outlook.

    Cons

    There seems to be a strong focus on only supplying relatively healthy snacks, which can be a positive for some people but it would be nice to cycle in some Goldfish or the like from time to time. Also the Terra chips were amazing. Would be awesome if we could bring those back.

    Also the building doesn't allow pets which is unfortunate since so many folks in the office have dogs that could definitely liven up the environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    I have been in here for six months now and I would said this is an awesome place to be: First of all is great to be part of an innovative organization and create cutting edge solutions that translate to measureable ROI for clients (how many company can really show that?). There are plenty of opportunities to learn and to gets hands on. If you show your willingness and will do attitude, management is open to support you to grow. Everyone is open and supportive (no bureaucratic stuff) and everyone is just a few desks away. Everyone is pleasant and easy to deal with. Lastly no one breath behind each other neck and they truly care what you can delivered.

    Business itself is growing great with new things continuously rolling out the pipeline; great place to be in.

    Cons

    Since we keep hiring, certain time is hard to get a conference room. Also a tiny cafeteria in the building but have better ones just need to walk for 5-10 min.

    I worked at Lattice Engines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lattice is the leader in a space they clearly defined. Really robust growth over last 4 years and impressive customer list. The pace is fast and associates are of high caliber. Management team is sensitive to customer and employee needs.

    Cons

    No "cons" to speak of-just prepare yourself for a fast paced, dynamic environment. No place for "coasters".

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster an environment that allows professional growth and keen attention to cusotmers.

    Pros

    a bunch of smart people and management who cares.

    I would say the only con is the cafe in the building. It is not that bad just takes too long.

    I worked at Lattice Engines full-time

    Pros

    Smart, hard working and fun colleagues
    Interesting problems to solve and openness to adopting new technology
    Emphasis of a collaborative and caring company culture
    Flexible hours, never a problem to work from home if necessary

    Cons

    Probably like most companies of this size, comprehensive documentation or formal learning opportunities are limited. But there are always nice colleagues who are willing to help or answer questions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving people incentives to contribute to a great workplace culture

    Pros

    Good product, some very good and dedicated staff. Some loyal customers.

    Cons

    Senior management has all the answers, does not listen to the people doing the work. It's "their way or the highway." Customers have moved on to other companies, and mgt blames everyone but themselves. In many cases Lattice fails to make the short list. Surprising amount of turnover in some groups. Lots of micromanagement. Revolving door in sales, sales management. No significant marketing going on. Sales people expected to conduct their own field marketing activities.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to the people who have something to contribute. Brute force and ego will only get you so far. You are not always right. Customers have more options than ever and just because Lattice was one of the first in the market doesn't mean it's one of the best. Get out of the way and let people do the jobs you hired them to do.

    I worked at Lattice Engines full-time

    Pros

    free snacks and a semi cool office

    Cons

    -constant churn of employees (some have been axed after only 2 weeks, which was solely training)
    -no work life balance
    -very little guidance/leadership from upper management
    -constant bad mouthing of competition
    -felt like a puppy mill
    -no opportunities for growth promotions are simply raises and a title change, without a change in responsibility

    Advice to Management

    -be more transparent with employees
    -try to understand your market a bit more (constantly changing value prop messaging)

    seems like the company does a round of layoff every year, which is a bit too much.
