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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest minds, great expertise, in an exciting space: voice computing, AI, IOT, ML, DNN, biometrics... If you want to be "in the room where it happens" in the future, this is the place!

    Cons

    Has the fun factor of a start-up, but also some of the learning and lack of process

    Advice to Management

    Diverse work environments are more productive and creative -- while the company has good diversity on some fronts, do more when it comes to gender and more traditional minority groups

    Pros

    Work with some of the smartest people available, whether its with my team or cross-functional teams. Work with some of the hottest technology out there, there's always room to grow (no stagnation yet). The capability to work remotely, on a regular basis. Teamwork in every effort, no egos getting in the way of getting the job done. Individual efforts supported by team members and management, never left alone on an island.

    Cons

    Work sessions can extend late into the night, or even into the next day. Managing stress is key. Some of these sessions are planned months in advance, others are unplanned.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits, specifically health coverage and 401(k) matching could be better.

    Pros

    Working with smart people, Innovation in the market, Customers love Pindrop for both our products and our service

    Cons

    Keeping pace with change and innovation each year.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation is great and builds both a short and long term vision for the market and our customers. Slow down at times just enough to help employees keep pace with supporting the innovation to the market.

    I have been working at Pindrop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very positive atmosphere, from the top down.

    The largest collection/highest percentage of highly skilled and motivated people I've seen in one place. Every company *says* they value talent, it's refreshing to work somewhere that actually does.

    Respectful of weekends and scheduled PTO.

    Have seen a number of promotions and recognition of contribution or contributors.

    Cons

    Going through some pains associated with expanding into new products and a larger number of open initiatives.

    I have been working at Pindrop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pindrop employs incredibly smart people and uses the best tools on the market. The sales team is equipped with premier technology to be more efficient and effective in outbound activity. There are catered lunches every Friday which allow employees to interact and have great conversations. The entire office is friendly and open to assist with any effort. The company invests in its employees and develops them through both internal and external training. It is exciting to be on the forefront of a new technology, but also unnerving at times for those not prepared for the responsibility. Every day is a rush and I am blessed to say I look forward to coming into work.

    Cons

    Due to the intense pressure to perform, there can be times of paranoia on job security, however, if you're contributing value and generating revenue, you're obviously not going anywhere. It can be difficult to see career growth for some positions. It is a high pressure and intense environment so one cannot expect anything different.

    Advice to Management

    I am confident that our leadership is well informed and makes the best decisions. I do not have any input on which direction to take as the ship is sailing in strong winds on a great trade route.

    Pros

    Pindrop employees know what they are doing and are very nice. I haven't had a manager like the one I have now at Pindrop. Even my VP is humble and the way he talks to you makes you feel you are important for the company.

    Cons

    I have been working with Windows during all my career. When I was hired by Pindrop , i noticed all the laptops are MAC. i had to go learn how to operate MAC which is not a con, but that's the only issue I had.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
