    I have been working at Percolate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Product has been massively upgraded in past 12 months
    - So has the average employee and manager skill and experience level
    - Largely new (1+ year) exec team establishing trust in employees
    - Extremely customer focused company with incredible feedback from customers
    - Amazing culture and increasing amount of focus on hiring and retaining top talent

    Cons

    - Lots of strategy pivots and employee burnout historically as the company strived for product-market fit. But things are trending up now.
    - Stalled from a growth perspective, but 2018 will be a growth year.
    - Didn't pay well historically. That is also changing now
    - Can do a better job handing employee departures

    Advice to Management

    - Stick to the 2018 plan
    - Continue to focus on employee and customer retention, both critical to achieving our goals

    Pros

    The product is great. Customer service and lead gen are spot on.

    Cons

    Success is based on political acumen. And politics change like the wind. Tremendous attrition will keep them from reaching any meaningful accomplishments.

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

    Pros

    Great office locations and good coffee

    Cons

    Where to start...Direction from the top is atrocious. Unapproachable and accusatory. Both founders believe they are gifts from above the way they treat their employees

    There is a real lack of mgmt. The people that are put in place, do not have the experience to make decisions

    Absolutely no accountability when things go wrong.

    Do not believe in any work life balance. You are looked down upon if you take vacation.

    Product has no real market fit. It is a nice to have. Not a need to have.

    From every part of the organization, people are looking to get out. My advice to anyone looking at a job here is to speak with current employees outside of the hiring process to get a real feel on what its like to work there.
