    I have been working at Personify full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Atmosphere is great. People are friendly. Lots of growth opportunities if you work hard. Product is getting better and better. Unlimited PTO. Beautiful location. Approachable executive team.

    Cons

    Still need to work on training and sharing knowledge across teams and departments.

    Advice to Management

    Need job descriptions for all positions so that when someone is let go the knowledge gap can be filled. Losing people with very specific knowledge hurts everyone especially the clients.

    Had a great time working at Small World Labs, before the Personify acquisition. Great people, amazing clients and work that I was very proud of.

    Would have liked to market and grow a bit more.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of growth, keep up the good fight for great clients.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Personify full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people! As busy as everyone is, folks are willing to pitch in and help out colleagues. Company bought out by investment bank in 2013. Professional mgmt put into place that works on being profitable.

    Cons

    Post-buyout exec team struggled to figure out the non-profit market. Lots of stumbles. Sales are terrible due to low/no client recommendations. HQ moved to Austin and it's now very centric to there. Limited career path.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to get sales flowing again. Be consistent.

    Pros

    Good group of sharp people Acquisition of Small World Labs added a really good platform and new great people to work with People work hard and care about what they do There are opportunities to continue to advance after you join (provided you do well)

    Cons

    Austin office is a little on the west side of town but is a reverse commute and has a nice view of the hill country

    Advice to Management

    We've made a lot of product and company improvements over the past year plus (customers cite best upgrades ever, new policy for free upgrades, expanded r&d team to accelerate platform, etc.) so making sure the word gets out

    Pros

    Great place to sharpen your skills and make meaningful impact on a growing business, even in beginning stages of your career. Clear communication and open door policy with most (if not all) managers is something that is very refreshing, especially at a business of this size. Most importantly, great people in all different functions makes coming to work an enjoyable experience day in and day out.

    Cons

    Nothing substantial, just typical pains that come with a growing business!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    I worked at Personify

    Pros

    They have some great people here .. At leafy for now. It's all about billable resources

    Cons

    Where do I start. They want to hire a bunch of jr programmers at pay them a lower wage but still bill out at $175 or > per hour. The professional services management left a month ago...the new principal owners are gutting this place.

    Advice to Management

    This company was doing well two years ago and now it is being cut to shreds
