    I worked at Verivo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great technical ideas and open communication

    Cons

    When the business was drowning, the board brought in experts with dated strategies that worked for them in the past, but just accelerated the company's spiral.

    Advice to Management

    The company doesn't exist any more and this is a test review.

    I worked at Verivo full-time

    Pros

    Great office space, great people, and pretty good benefits for a smaller company. The early management did a great job positioning the company as a leader in mobile app dev.

    Cons

    The company really was poised for greatness, but bad decision-making (both product and business), and poor late-stage leadership were the final nails in the coffin.

    Advice to Management

    There isn't any more management, as the company has been acquired by another mobile player.

    Pros

    Comp was fine, it was a great place to work in mobile in Boston for a while. Loved the people there.

    Cons

    Well the company doesn't really exist any more. Assets were sold off and swallowed up by some other company. So I guess that's a "con".

    Advice to Management

    Don't pay too much attention to this review. I'm really just writing it so I have access to all the other features on this web site. Cheers!

  8. "Disappointing Finish"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Sales in Waltham, MA
    Former Employee - Sales in Waltham, MA

    I worked at Verivo (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company was born from hard work and innovation. Original team knew the market and built products with a purpose, and as a result, customers loved them.

    Cons

    The change came when the purpose of the product became unclear, as did the value. The delivery of an unclear product to a racing market was a recipe for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for advice. The company has been absorbed into a newer mobile app platform company. Maybe they can make sense of whats left. Or maybe not.

    Realize you have great talent. Use their knowledge to help the company grow.

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

    Pros

    I met some great people there that I hope to work with again in the future

    Cons

    Where to begin. This company has no direction at all. Similar to the Titanic they most likely saw the iceberg but continued to steer right into it! I've never ben a part of a company that was lead by so many gutless individuals, stop beating around the bush and give it to your employees straight, I think they have earned at least that much!

    Advice to Management

    If I had any advice it would probably fall on deaf ears. Besides I don't think there is a management team still there.
