    I have been working at Nerdio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chicago and surrounding area is probably not the hugest hub of progressive start-ups that you would read about in magazines. But here at Adar, things are quite different. A laid back environment, a variety of projects, an opportunity for each individual to be proactive and learn from his or her colleagues. Combined with an awesome benefits suite and tons of employee perks, this is a place that truly knows how to make its staff feel valued.
    Whether it be snacks and shooting hoops in the lounge, the company sponsored Netflix account to enjoy on your lunch break, or the constant provision of all necessary supplies and equipment to ensure that every employee can succeed, Adar truly knows what it means to create a positive work environment.

    Cons

    Parking can be annoying at times. No issues for anyone who takes public transportation though since the train stops only 2 blocks away from the office.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your staff, it seems that a lot of the successful decisions implemented by the company are based on employee feedback.

    I worked at Nerdio full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology and some genuinely nice people.

    Cons

    Chaotic, a lot of goals but no actual business strategy. If it sounds too good to be true, it IS.

    Advice to Management

    Think. Think. Think. Stop for a minute and think about how your actions impact the lives of people that believe your empty promises and good intentions. Would you want that for your family? Of course not. Practice living by all of that "we're wonderful" for a day or two. See what a difference it makes.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits
    Great camaraderie among employees
    Quite a bit of flexibility
    Good space to be in
    Okay place to start out at but no long term career prospects

    Cons

    Location leaves a lot to be desired
    Traffic is bad
    Very little knowledge of marketing so that's an area to avoid (lots of ego; little talent; lack of people skills at the upper echelons)
    Don't stick with plans well
    Low pay; hire a lot of people with little experience that they can get cheaply so there tends to be a lot of turnover
    Never a good sense of job security (could rub an ego-centric management type the w rong way and be out.)
    Not much opportunity for advancement
    Not a lot of respect for customers/prospects

    Advice to Management

    Pay for expertise and treat employees well; they'll stick around longer
    Make sure your execs have better people skills or get some training
    Commit to a plan and follow it
    Make customer service a priority
