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

    Pros

    Platform Science has a top-notch on-boarding experience, is full of knowledgeable people and due to its flat corporate structure - maintains very approachable leadership. The company is growing so quickly there are a number of great positions to be filled and a great deal of work to be completed - there's never a dull moment. The scrum methodology is also implemented properly and problems are solved quickly and calmly. Other little things and nice to haves - gym, parking, benefits, snacks, cold brew, drinks etc. etc. also help make it a great place to work!

    Cons

    If you're keen on the industry and like San Diego, there aren't any downsides.

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

    Pros

    There's a ton of work to do and the team is fully engaged - ready for this phase of company growth. We've got plenty of incredible projects to stay on top of without any shortage of new puzzles to solve. There is a mix of regular company sponsored events, meals, and volunteer opportunities that also keep the culture in a lively state. It's an exciting time so long as you bring your heart, bring your brain, and bring your A-game.

    Cons

    Having (almost) more to do than we can keep up with - we need more people.

    Great on-boarding process. Realistic expectations for learning names/faces (personalized coffee mugs help a lot !) and office processes.
    Great discussions about company history, and goals to keep the company culture successful.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    There are always interesting cross-discipline challenges to solve. Everyone is easy to work with. Great effort has been put in to maintaining a great work culture. Being involved early allows for shaping the future of the company. It is really exciting to be a disruptor in an industry that sees slow adoption of new technology and to see the great interest in our product from the industry.

    Cons

    Traffic in UTC can be rough. Some benefits like 401k are not available, but management is open to trying with enough interest. It can be difficult to see the possible career opportunities in a young company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees.

    Pros

    Culture: Hard working but laid back, comfortable attire, kitchen stocked with good snacks, friendly, frequent company events, great onboarding process

    Management: We are not micromanaged. Everyone has a lot of flexibility and range to complete their work, very creative environment, and there is always a positive approach applied to resolve any challenges or issues at hand

    Location: Office & location are in a great area (UTC/La Jolla)

    Awards: In our first conference / exposure to the industry, we placed in top 25 (#18) out of 500 companies as one of the most disruptive & innovative telematics/IoT companies for 2018 (FreightTech Top 25) and Best in Show at MarketWaves 2018 Conference

    Opportunity: Young startup, tons of opportunity

    Cons

    No 401k offerred as of yet

    Advice to Management

    401k would be a great benefit to offer to current/future employees

    I have been working at Platform Science full-time

    Pros

    Positive attitudes, transparent leadership, healthy snacks, modern building and office space, on-site gym, wetsuit drying room and private showers for post surf sessions. The kitchen is always stocked with essentials and requested food and beverages. We are also right across the street from UTC mall which has a brand new food court and of course desirable shopping for lunch break errands

    I could go on and on but the little things but the most important pro is that leadership cares about the success of each individual. Benefits are always explained in detail and I am never unsure of who to approach when I have a question. The compensation is also very fair

    Cons

    None! It's the best company ever
