      Pros

      Management is fantastic as you work with some of the most educated individuals in the industry. They give you a lot of autonomy, are very mission-driven. They truly care about their people.

      Cons

      It's hard to list cons here, as I feel listened to and respected daily.

      Pros

      Great company to work for. This company taught me the skills and knowledge that any other company would not. The CEO has a open door policy and is willing to help anyone at the company be successful in their role and to advance in the company. Best decision I made to leave a different industry I had many years in to come to a company that appreciates your hard work and dedication

      Cons

      You are held accountable for you efforts you put in

      Pros

      This company's product line is amazing and it is fascinating to believe the level of depth that they have built. A great example of how product should be setup to improve customer experience

      Cons

      Could do better on resource management. There's a wide gap for product learning between experienced and new folks.

      Save yourself. Stay away.

      Pros

      Absolutely nothing. This will be your worst possible decision in your life.

      Cons

      No open communication. Everything in the company is a secret. Extremely bad management with no prior experience building product companies. They distort reality or openly lie to employees about the state of the company. Hiring practice is in many ways broken, they lie about bonus & stock options; none of those exists. No annual salary correction. There is no employee performance management. Culture is: be a slave to key management members, don't ask anything, fault is always yours. If you are in product delivery you are dead. Expect to work all night with India engineering team that is completely irresponsive and no work etiquette and not accountable for anything. If you question the ways and means, you are in the bad books. If you are on engineering side, then don't question the CPO. CxO management style is to get work done by public beating, naming and shaming the person. They openly call-out people as dumb and stupid in meetings. They say only intelligence is respected at the company, but reality is they want slaves that don't speak. They make you openly lie to customer and partners. They make up stories to customers about product issues. They are not a product company. They are a very bad System Integrator that has some code base that they deploy to every client in a custom way. They have the biggest churn of people in engineering and product delivery role. Only ones that have stayed there long are helpless souls or someone that does not know how other companies work. Company will fail because of CPO, President and CEO.

      Pros

      5 word minimum nothing to write here.

      Cons

      Everything. Not a good environment to be in. Micromanagement at every level. If you are in sales, good luck. It’s a revolving door. What a waste.

      Not a good place to work at all

      Pros

      The VP of product engineering is awesome!

      Cons

      The company hired good project managers/directors from Ingram Micro, Deloitte but were unable to cope up with the working culture. The reason is poor management (micro-management) and blame games. There are trust issues in the organization from the CEO who does not listen to people and sets up impractical expectations. As a result, you cannot learn and succeed. There is no job guarantee even if you work out of your skin. The best advice would be to consider other options to work and avoid this place until the CEO is replaced.
