    I have been working at Movable Ink full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - True focus on the people (perks, culture, even comp analyses for bias) - Extremely values-driven organization, which does trickle down to each employee in the form of a healthy culture & people you love to work with - Leadership that cares (they have also done the job before since they promote heavily from within) - Not much employee turnover - Clients love our product and often see huge ROI - Client list to...

    Cons

    - No 401k match - Focus on growing leadership from within has meant that many managers are first-time managers with little to no management training (but that is changing w new HR/training hires) - Can be challenging to break into the culture and be respected if you're hired into a leadership role from the outside, but I like the challenge as it represents the high bar that Movable Ink employees have set for each other

    Advice to Management

    Add 401K match. Also be more thoughtful/strategic when pricing the product and deciding where/how to expand the product.

    Pros

    Great team Great culture Super cool product you can be proud of Tons of learning opportunities Unlimited PTO Snacks galore Tons of events So many others!

    No 401(k) matching. The company is growing rapidly though, so maybe in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! All of the forward thinking keeps work fresh and exciting, and definitely strengthens the culture.

    Great people, plus a product that clients like, makes a perfect equation for rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pedal to the metal and continue to allow the company to grow. There is a strong work ethic among the team and as the company expands, it will be important to keep this core value.

    Pros

    It's great to work for a company that has the fast-paced, fun and exciting feel of a startup, but with a seasoned management team who've all done this before. We have a cool product that continues to get better, a brand that's well known within email marketing, and clients that love us. Aside from the product, Movable Ink has the best culture of any company that I've ever worked for. The management team has made significant...

    Cons

    Certain teams are cliquey and more challenging to work with than others. Some employees don't know how to handle flexible culture, like unlimited PTO, beer in the office, ping pong, etc. and abuse those policies.

    Advice to Management

    Match our 401Ks PLEASE!

    great pay great benefits unlimited PTO pretty flexible hours snacks galore lots of fun events, including team-building events wellness Wednesdays a women's group monthly program (you can opt-in) where an employee is matched with 3 other employees and the company pays for lunch -- such a great way to meet people on other teams on my team specifically, everyone's opinion is valued and you get to decide what you...

    I have been working at Movable Ink full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Movable Ink is not my first startup, but it's my first startup that is run by professionals. The CEO, CTO, CFO, SVP of Engineering all take running a business seriously, and are thoughtful and actively engaged with the direction of the product and the success of the business. They've scaled the company cautiously as revenue has grown to support it, and there is a clear product market fit. The company is pretty...

    Cons

    The sales team is scaling out which is always nerve wracking, but I'm very hopeful they'll crush it. No 401(k) match.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent. Strongly consider adding a 401(k) match. You'll lose talented mid career professionals to more established companies who are able to contribute to their employee's futures.

    Pros

    If you want opportunity, you got it. The best feeling at a job is knowing your hard work is recognized. There is never a feeling of reluctance to take on a new project because you know if you do it well it will be recognized. More importantly, it will be critically examined. New initiatives and ideas that contribute to the overall workflow and environment are not just given lip service, they're evaluated and incorporated...

    Cons

    This is a mature company that wants to stay in the startup mindset. Move fast, fail quickly, disrupt the market and bring real and relevant results to the forefront. This is not a 9-5 (not even a 9-6).

    Advice to Management

    The product portion of the company is maturing steadily; once it hits a critical point it would be great to have a more long-term and transparent plan solidified for the product/company. The company culture is already great but we’re already seeing more investment into it. Keep that up.

    I worked at Movable Ink full-time

    Pros

    - The product is above and beyond any of the competition and will continue to grow and out perform. - The engineering and product teams are magic and clearly well managed and innovative. - Growth is happening quickly and the company will continue that way with no competitors that come even close.

    Cons

    - Although a lot of women work at MI, more women in upper management would be nice. There were instances where the work done by a woman was undervalued and assumptions were made that good work was done by a male equal. - A very sales driven and 'bro-y' culture. A gong is hit in the office every time a deal is closed. - A lot of perks and culture initiatives that are meant to be a value add but end up feeling forced...

    Advice to Management

    Invest as much time and energy into your people as you do your product. There are very smart and hard working people on the team that love and are invested in the product. Continue to grow the account management team. Since they are managing client relationships and are often using the product on their behalf, their work is paramount and often the heaviest.
