    I worked at Personify full-time

    Pros

    The products they sell are actually good products.

    Cons

    Management is too young and in experienced to actually be effective. You are promised opportunities for growth, but they only arise when someone else leaves, and they are too cheap to hire any one else to fill those positions. This creates you working long hours with no pay increase. Due to the young age of a lot of the employees it creates a catty office, with no where to turn for advice as you always have to watch your back.

    Advice to Management

    Get more experienced managers who more fully understand where the company is going and allow you the opportunities for growth outside of when someone leaves.

    Pros

    Extremely flexible all-around. Work life balance is emphasized. Experience is built on positive growth, professional and personally. You can tell they care about their employees more so than larger corporations.

    Cons

    You work with non-profits and associations mostly, not really a con, but anticipate longer cycles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on truckin'

    Pros

    There are so many pros for this organization. Coming to work everyday is a daily struggle for many people, but when you come to work at Personify you never feel like you don't want to be here. Everyone here is so talented, passionate, and willing to work hard so everyone can collectively succeed.

    The company offers great benefits, which include unlimited PTO!! Managers are also open to work from home days. This company really makes their employees feel like they matter.

    Cons

    I cant think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. We have great employees who work here and are truly happy working for the organization.

    Pros

    - Great coworkers and clients
    - Leadership who cares and strives for improvement
    - Good promotion opportunities for motivated employees
    - Interesting industry and customer base
    - Flexible vacation and work location policies
    - Matched 401k

    Cons

    - Location of the office in Austin - scenic views but a commute for just about everyone (although Personify does have flexible work schedules/location)

    Advice to Management

    Encourage communication, transparency, and innovation among all employees - from entry level to executive. Engage clients as partners. Keep up the great forward momentum!

    I have been working at Personify full-time

    Pros

    My coworkers are hard working and extremely loyal people; always willing to answer a question or go above and beyond to help. There is lots of flexibility when it comes to telecommuting. An extremely family friendly environment. Working hard and exceeding exceptions is rewarded/paid attention to.

    Cons

    The technology infrastructure operates at a bare minimum. Since the offices are split over three geographical locations there can be a misconception on what actually happens in each of the three areas in regard to contribution to the company and the culture of each office. There has been historically a very high turn over rate which can be frustrating when working on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the infrastructure. Productivity could increase if latency and down servers were addressed. Come up with redundancy plans for attrition. It will make projects run smoother and take further stress off of the rank and file.

    Pros

    The opportunity this company can bring employees, especially ones just starting their careers. There is definitely constant change which always brings good and bad, the room for job growth and opportunity to try new roles is always going on here.
    The flexibility! You are able to be flexible with your schedule as long as you get your work done, you have the ability to shape your job as managers are open to improvement and I can't say enough about the people I work with in VA. My co-workers are intelligent, hardworking and would go out of there way for the person sitting next to them.

    Cons

    C-levels are not based in this office and that can sometimes make employees feel separate from the rest of the company but I have seen efforts by the team to travel out more often.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look at leadership and ways to improve leaders across the board.
