    I worked at Purple Monkey Studios, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was some interesting computer work, current software, great fellow employees.

    Cons

    I am guessing that it grew "too" quickly for the management to keep up with it. I came to feel lost there, wondering who I was supposed to report to. When work got scarce, it seemed like I was supposed to hustle work from different groups of programmers. Just too weird for me! Give me work or lay me off! Oh, they laid me off.

    Advice to Management

    Design a structure that works so people can know where they are at in the organization. It just wasn't clear half the time who I reported to, what I was supposed to be doing - just a really confused workplace to be in.
