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

    Pros

    The company has a lot of potential. They are leaders in the bus space and it is a very easy to sell because the competition they have doesn’t provide nearly the same quality of service. Management is understanding and forward looking as well.

    Cons

    The company is growing very fast. They are very picky on the hires and I believe they are leaving money on the table by not capitalizing on all leads.

    Advice to Management

    Great job. Keep up the growth!

    Pros

    Shofur is one of the fastest growing companies in Atlanta. You always work on new projects. You will be tested but it is a great way to learn. No two days are the same. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    It is very fast pace environment. It is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving.

    I worked at Shofur full-time

    Pros

    Because of the relatively small size of the company, it's easy to communicate directly with the C-levels; often, they even listen. The benefits are quite decent, pay is fair, and office is beautiful.

    Cons

    The company operates in an extremely dishonest manner (including directing employees to leave positive Glassdoor reviews every time someone leaves a poor review). This "review scheming" is rampant in all parts of the company, with most of the company's positive PR bought from overseas (Facebook reviews, etc). In fact, it's actually quite rare for them to land a repeat sale because of their keep-the-money-at-all-costs attitude. That dishonesty affects employees, too. Not only can they not always trust the information they're being given (especially when it comes to promises about advancement potential), but it can also be demoralizing to participate in screwing your customers over every day.

    The way the company is run is actually kind of spastic and unstrategic, with very little data-driven decision-making. The company leadership likes to think of these day-to-day directional shifts as "quick-moving" or "agile", but they're really just indicative of a total lack of understanding of the market. (In fact, leaders in the company have expressed that gathering expansive data on customers is "a waste of time", and it's not until sales start to drop off that they start to pay attention.)

    It's common for startups to describe their challenges as "growing pains". These aren't growing pains, these are disorganization pains. As an employee of Shofur, I didn't last long at the company before I became disengaged as a result of the toxic, unethical culture that made me feel like I was walking into a den of snakes each day.

    Advice to Management

    You have got to start caring about your customer. Doing whatever it takes to make a quick buck is simply not a sustainable strategy. When your growth is based on the question "how can we deceive more people into doing business with us", it won't take long to come back and destroy you.
    If you want sustainable growth and an engaged group of employees with minimal turnover (and minimal recruiting costs as a result), you might consider stepping up your ethics game.

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

    Pros

    *Software engineers at Shofur are among the kings of the hill at the company. It’s a technology-driven company and culture that thrives on the creativity of its employees

    *The perks are great. Lunch is typically provided and there are snacks and a beer tab at the office. The pay is the best perk as the technology team is paid well above the industry standard

    Leadership is always listening and looking for ways to grow the company. Being on the technology team, you can always approach leadership to provide input on how to make improvements to foster growth

    Cons

    * As expected for a startup, hours can get long at time, but you're rewarded for putting in the effort and work

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing to grow the company as fast as you have been.

    Pros

    The company has market fit and is highly innovative in the space. Great leadership especially in the marketing and sales dept.

    Cons

    Like with any startup things can get hectic at times and you're asked to work beyond regular business hours. But the growth and opportunity that comes with it is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hustle. You have first mover advantage and make sure you stay ahead and innovate like you are.
