    Pros

    - Powerful solution that is way ahead of the industry - Work hard, play hard environment with great team mates and plenty of options for career advancement - Constantly surrounded by super smart people, amazing customers and partners - Monday Bagels, beer on tap, lots of snack and drinks to enjoy - Quarterly trainings and team outings - Flexible PTO

    Not a ton to say here. It's a great company for you if you are motivated, a fast learner and team player that enjoys being busy more than being bored.

    Pros

    People, Product and Mission. The company rewards effort and results, and if you're open minded, you will learn a lot. You are surrounded by a lot of smart people, who are also great people to grab a beer with after hours.

    Cons

    There are no deal breakers. From an annoyance standpoint the elevators sometimes take a long time. Information flow can be difficult unless you make an effort to go after the info you need.

    I have been working at Smartling full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Smartling has assembled a winning team of really smart people, built an incredibly good, disruptive product and is on a trajectory that is drawing the attention of investors and customers alike. They are realistic about work-life-balance, and because they've hired seasoned professionals (for the most part) they don't micro-manage employees. There is a great deal of enthusiasm within, and incredible customer satisfaction - which makes my sales job a lot easier. The leadership is young enough to still be very motivated and committed but not "pure managers" that don't understand the product, its values and the competition. In fact, the leadership know the business best, so they make good strategic decisions.

    Cons

    There are sales & marketing processes that need to be established (as with any startup), but there is the management commitment and funds to do so. Fortunately, everything related to the product works really well. Benefits are ok. Pay is average.
