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

    Pros

    Incredible opportunity for growth and the privilege of working with some of the biggest, boldest customers on the planet. We're in an industry that's rapidly changing (in so many positive ways) and SmashFly's brand is well respected in the space. This gives us the opportunity to help shape the future of our industry and really paint a picture of what talent acquisition and recruiting could be.

    There's also a sense of community and team at this company that I haven't seen elsewhere. People truly have each other's back and we all work to support the company's larger goals — creating a sense of collaboration that leads to some really inspiring cross-team efforts.

    Cons

    It's a growing company with growing pains at times. But through those pains, management and senior leadership is always transparent and we do our best to treat our customers like we want to be treated — with mutual respect, honesty, and close attention to their needs.

    Focussed on the future and growth, some of the best companies in the world are customers, exciting technologies, flexible work schedules, lots of trust to work independently

    Pros

    Great People (mostly) work is challenging, People are helpful and there is no lack of work. Still had the startup feel.

    Cons

    Cliques in engineering and Sales, if you are in the clique life is good, if not trying to get help is like pulling teeth. Change in the culture when the new COO came onboard. Product is too complex and thus testing is marginal leading to lots of bugs. Infrastructure was not very stable but perhaps that has changed for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the product. Keep priorities fixed rather than changing them every other week.

    Pros

    Vibrant work environment. Direct access to C-level. Innovative. High Growth. Customer Focused. Great colleagues who care about each other, the product and our customers.

    Cons

    Going through growing pains. Scaled up quickly and now adapting to ever-evolving market conditions. When companies grow so quickly, it comes with some blind spots.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to vision . Now that the company has grown to a size where there is a need for middle management, make sure that these folks remain empowered and informed so that they can lead their teams effectively. Stay focused on product quality and stability rather than rapid growth.

    Pros

    Culture. From the top down, this company is focused on bringing in talented individuals that fit a start up culture. Incredibly open and warm group of people to work with, but expectations are high and employees are pushed to deliver more/faster/better.

    Cons

    Company has quadrupled in size in under 2 years. There are definitely growing pains associated with trying to expand so quickly.
