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

    Pros

    The people are very smart, kind, and have a lot of energy. Lots of creative ideas and collaboration. Managers are generous and hands-off as long as you are doing your job.

    Cons

    Upper management often used marketing phrases instead of having a solid engineering-based description of the products and solutions we were expected to build. We never heard any bad news from the CEO, which made it hard to trust him when giving company updates.

    Advice to Management

    Get a solid plan and stick to it. Give employees the big picture and the whole picture - good, bad, ugly, and whatever else there is going on

    Pros

    Lots of food and nice people. Exciting ideas. Lots of smart people.

    Cons

    Ideas aren't turning into products. Company lacks focus..

    Advice to Management

    They aren't always clear about what we should be focusing on.. Good work gets thrown away or abandoned. Not always sure what my priorities are.

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

    Pros

    The company is totally focused on customer satisfaction. I’ve seen other small companies over-promise; but not here. The work environment is fun and challenging. Lots of smart people but we all get out for a laugh (or a movie, or drinks, or cooking lessons, etc.).

    Cons

    The workspace is crowded and can be noisy.

    Advice to Management

    We are a small and growing company – keep the dialogue open and let’s see more training & development opportunities.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Gym, transit pass, snacks provided. Catered food provided at many meetings and bonuses given out for holidays and major milestones.

    Startup environment with long hours at times. Would like to see some better communication about the state of company on a more regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication to employees about the state of the company. Would like to see more meetings discussing where the company is headed.
