    I have been working at Videology full-time

    Pros

    Because of Videology's position in a fast paced, growing, and changing industry, the work is challenging and rewarding with always something new to learn! The people at this company are incredibly smart, hardworking, collaborative, and fun, making it a great environment to be a part of.

    Cons

    Because it's a small company, the Employee Benefits Package is not on the same level as that of a larger company.

    Advice to Management

    Remain focused on transparently communicating information/direction to the larger team to ensure alignment towards the greater vision.

    Pros

    Good compensation, easy to maintain work/life balance, laid-back office culture

    Cons

    Benefits, subpar managers, zero growth potential in many roles

    Advice to Management

    Take action regarding the common themes that cause people to leave the company. Get rid of managers who do not know how to: manage, hire new talent or develop current employees.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Videology is the atmosphere and people. The motto here is that "people are our greatest asset" and it really couldn't be more true. The open layout and work hard, play hard attitude is what keeps the enviroment afloat. The industry is thriving and Videology is in the heart of it, which just makes it even more exciting to work here. I don't know many places that strive to keep their employees happy, the way Vid does. The constant surveys, happy hours and fun events always keep the employees engaged. You can even bring your dog into work every once in a while, and who doesn't love a puppy?!

    Cons

    No 401k match , and being taxed on everything.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let loyalty get in the way of a company that can do GREAT things.

    I have been working at Videology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, driven co-workers; Strong team dynamic; Leadership really seems to be trying to identify ways for business/product and engineering to work together and eliminate barriers

    Cons

    No industry standard retirement match; Understaffed or 'mis-staffed' in certain areas where it seems loyalty to some employees has become TOO strong and they really need to go

    Advice to Management

    Align actions and messages. Dramatic cost cutting in one area, while spending freely on fringe items, while communicating a third message is confusing and makes employees anxious about the future.

    Pros

    Friendly and laidback culture where people support each other, everyone discusses issues thoughtfully and respectfully even when they disagree, solid development work gets done, Happy Hours with plenty of beer, pretty good health insurance

    Cons

    Culture almost too laidback sometimes, lower-tier employees get some tedious work to do, pay raises aren't that great

    Pros

    If you're on the right team, the hours are great and the stress is low. Everyone is smart and works hard.

    Cons

    Hard work is not rewarded appropriately. The frequent team restructuring does more harm than good.

    Advice to Management

    Put more effort into bringing in new business and less effort into trying to fix internal processes that aren't broken.
