    I have been working at Viewpost full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Viewpost has had many ups and downs since it was founded, but unlike many startups, there is a sense of resilience and determination that is engrained in its culture. Some of the employees have been here since the beginning and have experienced the highs and lows. Newer employees have brought positive energy and fresh ideas. And together, the team is focused on success for the company and creating a special place to work for everyone.

    Cons

    Banks and enterprise companies move slowly, which can sometimes make it seem like progress is slow. Resilience and patience are required. Viewpost is still a startup — the future is very promising, but until all cylinders are firing, there will always be a level of uncertainty.

    The company has an incredible platform and a unique opportunity to change B2B transactions forever.

    Cons

    - Company does't respect work/life balance - Many individuals in leadership roles openly discriminate against veterans - Culture is not welcoming nor open, unless you went to Rollins or an Ivy school, you won't stand a chance of fitting in here.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I am glad you appreciate our awesome workforce and vibrant and imaginative team, though I am troubled by your view of management and your unfounded concern that we have sold either our customers or our code base. I have an open door policy. When you have a moment please come see me to discuss your concerns. I look forward to hearing more, and clarifying any confusion relative to our customers, code, growth trajectory or commitment to employees.
