    I worked at Lucid Software full-time

    Pros

    Outstanding company perks and culture. Free food, company activities, the best hardware and software for your work. They use world class tools and processes to deliver a product that is pushing the limits of web technologies.

    Cons

    Lucid expects a lot out of its employees and will prefer those who give more hours and more effort. If you are willing to put in the time, there is plenty of opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to care more about the career goals of the individual employee than the goals of the company. The paths they provide are good, but don't fit everyone. Also the company culture is geared towards young, unmarried college graduates, making it harder to keep those who are farther along in their careers.

    Pros

    great culture, amazing people, care about diversity, want what is best for you and your career

    Cons

    hard to think of them except maybe growing pains. Like any startup, it is hard to develop processes on the fly and get it right every time

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

    Pros

    Employees come first at Lucid. They really care about being an excellent employer that takes care of their employees. Leadership is very engaged and accessible. Pay is on par with industry and region. Lucidchart is an excellent product with room for a ton of growth. The culture is collaborative and not competitive, which has been so refreshing for me.

    Cons

    I started off unhappy with my compensation, but they have been very willing to raise it quickly as I've demonstrated excellent performance. No current complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being the best employer around! All of the benefits are excellent, don't lag behind in compensation and you'll be able to retain the amazing people you've worked so hard to get. As we move into the growth stage, don't forget about the people, values, and work that helped you get there as a startup!

    I worked at Lucid Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some good people higher up but unfortunately they have hired some wolves in sheeps clothing. Culture was great when I was first hired and slowly got worse and worse.

    Cons

    Manipulative practices not conducive to a healthy work environment. Pit worker against worker. Would not recommend working here in less you just need a filler for 6 months.

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

    Pros

    Lucid is such an awesome company. The culture is inviting and innovative. Everyone I work with is not only intelligent and hard-working, but also kind and helpful. Management cares about professional and personal development. Clients love the software and are always raving about how much time it has saved them. Benefits are some of the best in the state. Overall, an amazing place to work!

    Cons

    There have been some growing pains, but management has been awesome in navigating those.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Lucid is a fantastic software company, helmed by a solid and experienced executive team committed to growing the correct way. They care deeply about work/life balance and are dedicated to providing stability for their team members while still providing the growth potential associated with a Silicon Slopes Unicorn.

    Cons

    The company could use a little bit of maturing as it relates to travel policy and spending, however, I am torn because I like the fact that they are fiscally responsible.

    Pros

    The team is amazing - smart and hard working people with low egos. The product is great - stable and a well-established product-market fit. The office is fantastic - spacious, great views, and fun features (climbing wall).

    Cons

    The traditional "startup perks" aren't quite as exciting as at other companies - the food in the kitchen is mediocre and usually runs out mid-week; the swag is not super-exciting; etc.
