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

    Pros

    I've actually worked for some other great tech companies in Utah that generate a lot of buzz and are overall really good companies to work for. For me, Podium has been by far the best!

    I've never seen a leadership team so invested and actually care about the people that work for them the way that the current management team does.

    I think the way that the executive team focuses on transparency and keeping in touch with their employees has created a culture that most people here work hard and work together - in every department.

    Cons

    The company is growing a lot and so it keeps us moving at a fast pace. I think it is actually a good thing that we've been okay to pivot and change direction - these decisions show me that we're willing to do what's right.

    Advice to Management

    Keep staying "grounded" and showing you care about employees - it goes a long way and I think you're doing an excellent job!

    Pros

    Amazing culture in every organization. The people here really care about what they are doing and it shows in how happy employees are every Monday morning for town hall. The executive leadership team is extremely transparent and nothing is kept from the company. The industry is booming and Podium is still not satisfied. The company is moving fast and refuses to let off the gas. This makes for a fun and exciting work environment.

    Cons

    The fast paced environment, is not for everyone. Some may feel to stressed and unable to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. With the amazing growth, culture is bound to change, embrace it. Keep the pillars in which the company was built on and the culture will evolve with growth for the better. Work on getting processes in place for recruiting, career development, etc. what you have now is working, but having defined processes will help with the growth.

    Amazing product. Incredible culture. Bright future. Friendly coworkers. Tons of swag. Great leadership. Pays well. Amazing office.

    Cons

    Not much flexibility in terms of being able to take time off. That’s literally it.

    Pros

    I love working with my team they are a solid group of engineers who are determined to implement well thought out and resilient services. I feel as though we (the engineers) have much more control over architecture and bugs than anywhere else I have worked.

    Cons

    Podium moves fast and it can be hard for some to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    * Figure out how to make Friday Fury work for all teams.
    * Ensure teams have dedicated time to innovate and improve existing solutions.

    Pros

    Great management and a well-structured engineering process. The team and processes promote an environment of giving/receiving constructive feedback and finding ways to allow engineers to grow with the company. Podium is a great company run by excellent people.

    Cons

    I'm not a morning person, so having meetings at 8 on Mondays and every other Friday were a little tough for me.

    Advice to Management

    There were a few times I felt like we were trying to maintain the culture of a 20-50 person company with a few hundred people. While I appreciated the thought, in practice it always felt awkward and out of place to me. I guess I would've appreciated trying to evolve and adapt the culture for a larger company rather than trying to maintain the culture of a small one.

    Pros

    This company has a culture that is unlike any other tech company. Your voice is heard, the leadership is open, and everyone wants to win.

    Cons

    Honestly, most is good, the only con is that they only cater lunch once a week as opposed to 3-4 I got at my last place. But let's be honest, catered lunches mean bigger waistline.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin' on! We love how open you are about our growth and our vision moving forward.
