    Pros

    West coast culture. Great people. Charismatic CEO.

    Cons

    Insecure funding and frequent layoffs. Still a great place to work if you are willing to take high risk to get an even higher reward.

    Pros

    Good people. Snacks. Ping Pong. Massages.

    Cons

    Weak leadership and lack of focus. The executive team was always going after the next new shiny thing and disrupting development and design efforts. Having vision is a great, but it should be backed by research and data, not made up numbers. Lack of support for promoting our products. No alignment across the organization.

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

    Pros

    The people that work here are brilliant, talented, and completely delightful. The opportunities to learn and grow as a developer are immeasurable here. The work culture is great too. If you need to work from home one day for a doctor's appointment, it's fine. You can dress casually. They provide free food.

    Cons

    Definitely shaky due to the nature of start-up companies. If you're looking for a stable job, I suggest looking elsewhere. The direction of the company is also frequently changing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to grow too rapidly and stop poorly allocating resources.

    Pros

    Great workforce. Vibrant imaginative teams that could have ruled the payments space if mgmt would have had a clue

    Cons

    Inexperienced senior management made bad decision after bad decision. Sold the code base, sold the customer base and abandoned the employee

    Advice to Management

    Retire

    Pros

    Good architecture, amazing devops, top notch developers and system admins. Best compensation and benefits package in town.

    Cons

    Did not disclose risk of impending doom when hired. Lack of focus especially when it came to be profitable and garner market value. Defunct as of 10/13/2017.

    Advice to Management

    Solve a problem that companies / clients actually care for and have a monetization plan.

    Pros

    I thuroughly enjoy working as a customer service associate for Viewpost. The people at the Maitland office are wonderful. The building is clean. They provide a variety of amenities such as healthy snacks, beverages, occasional massage chairs, yoga classes, etc.

    The holidays are festive and sometimes even competitive; if you are interested in decorating your offices or competing in other little games they put on.

    Management is great. They are easy to communicate with and always seem to have your best interest in mind.

    I really can't say enough good things about the Viewpost family.

    Cons

    Occasional shakiness associated with any startup.

    Advice to Management

    I feel as though management does a great job. They provide insight into our forward looking plans, keep morale up-but-steady, interact w non-management frequently and as mentioned previously they seem to always be considering what's best for each individual. I've learned a great deal from my team.

    Pros

    The benefits and working environment were great.

    Cons

    Third of company was laid off for the second year running. I was hired as a DBA and was not given much work to do, I think they didn't know why they hired me and I didn't know what they wanted from me.

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring lots of people for quick results. grow at a steady pace.
