    Pros

    The culture here at Lytx is hands down the best I've ever been a part of. Very open and collaborative environment and the support is outstanding. I thought I might see "true colors" after a few months but it just keeps getting better. So happy to be a part of the Lytx family.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to list at this time.

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

    Pros

    My team astounds me regularly with their competence, thoughtfulness, and patience. They're also a riot to hang out with at lunch. Hands down the best job I've ever had.

    Cons

    The commute is very bad if you have to take any of the major freeways to get there (i.e. you don't live in La Jolla).

    Pros

    Good location, nice buildings and good benefits

    Cons

    CFO tried to be a CEO but is clueless about running the business
    Employees are treated very poorly
    NetSuite is a mess, SFDC is a mess, data is a mess
    Changes are constant and job stability is fiction
    Layoffs
    Politics and nepotism and many more cons

    Advice to Management

    CEO should look at results current team is delivering. With time the company is getting only worse and worse. Unhappy people,

    Pros

    Amazing, dedicated, collaborative people. They did a great job of hiring the passionate smart people. A place where the space was given to do great work.
    Charismatic CEO

    Cons

    Was a great place to work until sold to private equity.
    Massive layoffs happening now to get the company to look profitable for sell-off
    Not operationally able to support all of the business sold
    Infrastructure based on old technology will take a huge time and cash investment to fix
    Human Capital VP has a reputation that she is not trustworthy

    Advice to Management

    - Operations has had their head in the ground and should have fixed this a long time ago. How sure how this person still has a job...

    Pros

    -Great culture for growth. Teams here are very supportive in helping you grow and provide a fun atmosphere for learning and improving your skills.
    -Work Life Balance is excellent. I have never felt stressed about having to stay at work to get something done. The only time I choose to work longer is when I personally want to get something done.
    -Although business requirements take priority (obviously), Product management seem to also value input from software engineers in terms of technical implementation and allow for longer implementation time in order to get something done right. I can't stress how important that is to me considering how much tech debt can accrue from enterprise software due to shortcuts being taken and how that impacts me as an engineer in the long run.
    -Nice gym and dining area

    Cons

    The benefits could be a little better, specifically around the 401k plan. 5 Year vesting is a pretty high compared to other offerings I've seen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it whatever it is you're doing!

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

    Pros

    People and culture before the "transitions"

    Cons

    New management that doesn't understand how to treat employees for success
    Lack of compassion for employees from management
    Constant change without recognition

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire people who actually know what they are doing. Do not let your management "micro-manage" your employees forcing them to either quit or be put to blame when Management fails to provide solutions. Replacing good employees with "automatons" who blindly follow ignorant leadership will bring certain doom. And who gets blamed? Stop bringing in Managers who want to change a process already altered by their predecessors. Actually listen to your employees

    I worked at Lytx full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employees were great to work with, flexible time off, health benefits were good, and 401k matching.

    Cons

    Management needs to wake up and smell the roses. They have consistently shown that they know absolutely nothing about what is really going on in the organization. "Yes" men were brought in with no understanding of the business and a lack of desire to really learn about the business before making assumptions and decisions. Morale is at an all time low.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees. They are there ones on the front lines day in and day out and know what is really happening in the business. Make decisions based on that, not just your "business education" you received. Treat employees with respect and not just another number. Get to know more than just their name.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut off the support your current employees are providing you. Weather the storm with their help.
