    I have been working at TapSense full-time

    Pros

    I have been here for less than a year but I can definitely say it is one of the best companies I’ve worked so for.
 If you love wearing multiple hats and are a self-starter, this is the place for you. Company is growing and with the growth comes new exciting challenges, which helps you learn new things and gain experience. Team is very friendly and they’re always encouraging and supportive.

    Cons

    very little to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at TapSense full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great, friendly coworkers - Fun company outings - Great central location

    Cons

    - Time management (of meetings and employee schedules) is not the greatest - Pay scale is on the lower end - May have to take on responsibilities that don't personally pertain to your role since the team is small

    Advice to Management

    - Better internalize and execute on suggestions/complaints of employees

    I worked at TapSense

    Pros

    Young, dynamic, and fun team. Chance to work on massive scale and huge amounts of data. Collaborative and welcoming work place. Execution oriented and results driven culture.

    Cons

    It is a fast paced environment. Not ideal for someone seeking a 9-5 job. Being a startup in a fast evolving field, their goals and timelines are highly ambitious. It can also require modifying and adapting the goals quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on execution and results. More team outings. More communication amongst team members. Add training programs so that newer members can get up to speed more quickly. Provide more mentoring and career guidance.

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to the industry.

    Cons

    They lie about everything from their technology's capabilities to how well the business is doing (hint: it's not doing well) and they expect their salespeople to lie to potential partners as well. The executives care more about getting the company's name out there by spending major $$ to sponsor every mobile conference than they do about building a strong product and forming lasting partnerships. The company... promises high earnings potential but does not deliver, even for their top performers. Management is unwilling to take constructive feedback about the product or the company's business practices. They say that they are open but unless you're offering praise, they don't want to hear it. The favorite employees were the ones that went along with everything the CEO said and rarely questioned anything. When requesting constructive criticism from the CEO, he will offer nothing and then criticize you later for something that could have been addressed much earlier. The company does not care about employee growth and development. Goals are inconsistent and potential career paths are unclear. There is no work-life balance; working long hours and on weekends is encouraged and celebrated. The company had a round of layoffs last November and handled it incredibly poorly. Employees who lost their jobs were not offered any severance or compassion as they were being told they no longer had a job. If you are considering taking a job here, question everything you're told by management and current employees. Do your research. Try and talk to some former employees. Get the full story before accepting a position.

    Pros

    Smart and dedicated colleagues, good industry exposure. You have the opportunity to truly make a difference in the business health and future, and many roles have a high degree of autonomy. Benefits are solid.

    Cons

    The path forward is unclear. Company focus and priorities shift frequently without clear reasoning, which means many great opportunities are left to wither on the vine. Despite such a small size, internal communication is sorely lacking. Due to the extremely high turnover and sluggish hiring, you are often forced to take on responsibilities that take away time that should be spent on more valuable contributions. Pay... structure is a constant struggle, so it's critical to get everything very clearly defined and in writing (and even then there are no guarantees). I experienced and witnessed a lot of inappropriate and unprofessional situations with management. It's difficult to learn anything new.

    Advice to Management

    Bring on a seasoned leader to take control of business operations. Without a strong manager overseeing the team, morale will continue to decline. The only way to make a lasting cultural change is from the top down. Let employees know their value and have a say in the future.

    Pros

    Great employees, good office space with bi weekly lunches.

    Cons

    The company is like a sinking ship with an exorbitantly high attrition rate. The company itself doesn't know where it is headed and is highly mismanaged. Despite being a startup of <14 employees, the upper management doesn't care about the feedback and suggestions offered by the employees for growth. Poor pay structure. Laid back attitude. Half of the advertised products aren't developed. Stay away if you can.

    Advice to Management

    The top leadership needs to be changed. Get over with your blame game and take responsibility.
