    Pros

    a bunch of smart people and management who cares.

    Cons

    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)

    Pros

    technology is good and according to itself, it's a market leader. I do see the potential.

    Friday free lunch
    birthday celebration

    Cons

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

    Pros

    A great place to learn and be exposed to a growing industry.

    Some management teams could use some refinement

    Don’t forget to help others grow and encourage teamwork

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

    Pros

    The best job I've ever had, and I've had some good ones.

    The Space: At Lattice, I truly believe we are at the cutting edge of the data/machine learning revolution when it comes to sales and marketing, and it's a very interesting place to be for a data nerd like me.

    The People: Working here is to be surrounded by impressive people in all departments (though frankly not all people in all departments). My boss and the execs continually impress me, PhD data scientists abound, and the product, customer, and engineering team are top-notch. Lattice is home to some of the most experienced folks when it comes to actually implementing solutions and making them work. Lots of "A" players along with a shocking amount of humility.

    The Lifestyle: I'm fortunate to have significant control over my time, so while there's often a great deal of work to do, I get to control the hours when and location where I do the work, which improves my lifestyle immensely. I can leave early/arrive late to meet a friend and then sign back on later in the evening and no one bats an eye as long as the work gets don. Salary and benefits are at or above market.

    The Culture: Run by adults, at the risk of not being super "fun." Not full of happy hours or keggers, but coworkers are kind, respectful, and open to being social at work. Weekly office lunches as a group and frequent smaller interactions make me look forward to going to the office.

    The Product: The best in the space, and always improving. It has improved massively since I joined ~1 year ago. An impressive and growing number of successful deployments, customer advocates, and success stories.

    Cons

    Cross-pollination of information and best practices between product/engineering/sales/success could be a bit smoother and more frequent.

    Peak workloads can get intense when projects collide.

    The market is a bit immature, particularly in the enterprise space, which requires a fair bit of basic education on data-driven selling and marketing and can lead prospects to focus on the wrong things in the beginning of sales cycles.

    There is a tension between customizing deployments and being a pure-play product company with minimal tailoring of functionality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, I'm happy with my job and with the company.

    Lots of work to be done which falls into your weekends.

    Advice to Management
