    I worked at Tahzoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is the convenient offices in RVA and DC. There is also a very flexible work environment bc no one wants to come into the office!

    Cons

    Unless you like not getting paid and being lied to by your CEO and his admin team, then run away as fast as you! This company is an embarrassment for all local tech companies!

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CEO and let the COO attempt to take over!

    I have been working at Tahzoo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - There's a lot of freedom with the work you do: you generally have the opportunity to make your position your own.
    - Smart people everywhere: this is challenging and motivating, makes you want to be better. You have to be on top of your game.
    - Great culture: there's a bit of a start-up mentality in the company, so it's great for people with initiative and go-getters.
    - We work with great clients.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything. It's exciting to work here.

    Fast moving, Co-workers are great

    Terrible CEO, no room for growth, unorganized leadership team, inorganic growth is not researched and end up having to sell said inorganic growth.

    I worked at Tahzoo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very customer and employee focused. Bright and innovative thinkers- out of the box ideas.

    Cons

    High standards of work (this is both pro and con), need to be constantly able to 'step up' work products, sometimes last minute (urgent) requests both internally and externally, need to be able to work in a community driven hierarchy- not really any org chart or direct p managers... you have to be able to hold your own.

    Advice to Management

    more training and need an org chart.

    I have been working at Tahzoo full-time

    Pros

    Very collaborative, open environment. No one is jamming ideas down your throat. You have freedom to work the way you work best. Super fun team events like happy hours, family lunches, a roof top garden, and a ping pong table make work not seem so much like work. Very high standards keep you motivated.

    Cons

    If you need hardlined structure and to be put in a box this place is probably not for you.

    I have been working at Tahzoo full-time

    Pros

    Lots of fun people and passion. Really good benefits and office environment. Free lunches and a roof deck garden. I get to work with really big clients do interesting projects. I like the pace and the direction of the company.

    Cons

    Growing like crazy not all the systems are in place. Communication across the company is lacking at times. HR manager is clueless.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the communication. HR feedback and review process needs a lot of work. Invest in the software products.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Relaxed & flexible work environment
    - Presence in US & Europe (after recent acquisition)
    - Interesting / Enterprise-level clients
    - Visionary CEO for the company is a labour of love

    Cons

    - Lack of consistent management / growth strategy (constantly changing, sometimes w/ layoffs)
    - Lack of a framework / process for client engagements - a lot left to individual team members
    - If technology employees do not come in with knowledge of the technologies Tahzoo uses, no consistent way to onboard, making things inefficient at times

    Advice to Management

    Keep the consistent vision and positive culture alive and well, but figure out how to consistently deliver good work for clients and inspire confidence internally, so that people really care about the company and make the the reality match up to the values

    I worked at Tahzoo full-time

    Pros

    For the most part, the other employees are really nice and easy to work with

    Cons

    Upper management does whatever they want, whenever they want - there's no real consistency and things are constantly changing. There is also very little investment in the employees.
