    I worked at Swype (More than a year)

    Pros

    smart, energetic, young. Fast paced, driven with direction. transparent and honest, SMART folks all doing their part and then some. extremely fast growth surprisingly well managed. the entrepreneurs and the corporate leaders are fantastic people.

    Cons

    lifespan of the company was too short. sold it at the right time though.

    Advice to Management

    do it again

    Pros

    Fantastic new text input technology
    Consistently strong growth
    Core team previously successful in this space
    Management treats us fairly - strong emphasis on work life balance
    Pioneer Square location great for transit
    Regular innovation meetings where we can suggest ideas and the ideas are often acted upon

    Cons

    Can't evolve processes fast enough to satisfy growth
    Noisy environment
    Benefits could be better
    Old Fremont location was better

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Help us catch up with the growth.
