    Pros

    The CEO is awesome, super humble and down to earth. He really does care about his employees, and it shows in the way he treats us.

    Cons

    Things can get a little hectic due to the fast growth and therefore always changing nature of the company

    Pros

    Fun, environmentally conscience company. They realize their employees are what make PackSize great and treat accordingly. No gimmicks, while complex, very transparent sales process.

    Cons

    Very fast growing company, things can change quickly, keeps you on your toes.

    Advice to Management

    A little more planning before leaping would probably prevent a lot of backtracking, but overall, keep it up!

    Pros

    You will make someone else rich.

    Cons

    Too long to even share.

    Advice to Management

    Stop removing all "negative" reviews. I am not sure how, and I am questioning this website now, you removed any and all negative reviews.

    If you are a technology professional, don't join Packsize. Engineering management has no clue about technology nor how to run a multi-geography team. Management manages by fear (if you don't drop what you are doing at moments notice to travel to the worst "partner" customer) and threaten if you don't pull the weight. Say goodbye to work life balance.

    Managers are in place here in the U.S. that have no experience in hardware. The hardware team overseas does not observe any sort of rules of engagement with the U.S. (essentially they do what they want).

    Be careful in the work environment, you might make a mistake that causes HR to get involved. I think to date, Packsize has had more lawsuits in it's history as a company.

    I guess I should put in the pros section that you can just dial out for days and do nothing without consequence. Any good leaders have been witch hunted out of Packsize.

    Pros

    Packsize is growing very fast and it is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Could use some more vacation time or at least allow us to roll some of it over. It sucks to have to use all of your vacation time in December to make sure you don't lose it. Pretty petty thing to complain about. Haha.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great place, with great people. Doing great things.

    Cons

    We're trail blazing in many aspects. It's a con because there are many times we're trying to reinvent the wheel when there's already a wonderful wheel out there.

    Advice to Management

    Look around. See how others are doing it and learn from their best practices.

    Pros

    I can't say enough positive things about this company. The management is very pleasant to work with and never will you hear a colleague say "that's not my job". Everyone is always willing to help and work as a team here. That's no accident. The CEO's brilliant and caring personality is contagious throughout the company. I am proud to be a part of the Packsize team.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working at Packsize.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for creating such an amazing environment to work in and allowing myself to be a part of it.
