    I worked at The Neat Company full-time

    Pros

    I worked at Neat for almost 3 years. Was such a great team to be a part of and I learned an incredible amount during my time there - the work is challenging but it's a great opportunity to learn and grow. Competitive salary, flexible work schedule and fun company gatherings / outings.

    Cons

    The office environment can be quiet

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I worked at The Neat Company full-time

    Pros

    Compensation was competitive, work was challenging

    Cons

    Culture was toxic. Too-rapid growth caused employees at senior staff level who were not capable of effectively managing staff, creating a toxic atmosphere.

    Pros

    Occasional free food, location, salary

    Cons

    I really, really wish I had listened to all of the negative reviews on here before I accepted a job at Neat. This company is a quickly sinking ship and I'm amazed to see that they are hiring again. They are dealing with all sorts of financial problems and customer service issues and have had several layoffs just in the last few months. Most of the perks that drew me in when I started were long gone by the time I left. And honestly, they won't be around much longer, so it would be a huge mistake to take a job here. When I started, I wish I had known then what I know now. They have absolutely no loyalty to their employees - many people were laid off with no severance or warning, and a lot of them have been with the company for a long time. RUN AWAY!

    Advice to Management

    I think we're beyond advice here. Most of upper management is long gone.

    I have been working at The Neat Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, relaxed atmosphere, free lunch of Fridays, tons of free snacks. Time off policy is fantastic (take whatever you need, but don't abuse it) and working from home is almost always possible. New management team is solid and honestly doing what they can to improve the company. Cloud product has potential to save the company, however getting there will be tricky.

    Cons

    Definite ups and downs, and the company has been sliding down for a little longer than anyone hoped. It will be tough to pull out of this rut but at least the right people are in place to do it. Overall organization structure is lacking, career development and salary increases are scarce, and product is on a very slippery slope between essential and obsolete.

    Advice to Management

    You're facing an uphill battle, but it is a battle that can be won. Rely on the people in the trenches, they're willing to help.
