    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Tech perks like free meals, unlimited vacation (although you work so much that's not really feasible), the cachet of working at Twitter (if that's still a thing)

    Cons

    3 GMs in less than a year, no aligned leadership, goals and plans change every 3 months, constant power struggles, understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, pick a vision, stick to it

    Pros

    Fun culture and I enjoy working with everyone here
    Everyone's involved in the decision making process
    Huge impact
    Challenging work
    Tons of perks
    Great compensation
    Very flexible work hours

    Cons

    Some people tend to work a lot, but it seems like it's their choice. Can feel guilty leaving after a normal length work day when they're around still

    Advice to Management

    Recent changes have been very positive. Things keep getting better. Keep it up!

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

    Pros

    Working on an innovative product that is the future of mobile video and affects millions of people.
    Flexible schedule means you can work whenever you feel most productive.
    Vine feels like a start-up, but there isn't the constant fear of making the next round of funding or trying to get acquired. Normally when a start-up is acquired, the parent company subsumes the acquired company. In Vine's case, they operate independently.
    Team is small, so anything you do is a huge part of the product.
    Beautiful office located in the heart of Union Square. Literally the greenest office I've ever worked in.
    Solid benefits, notably free movies, massages, and CitiBike.

    Cons

    Crunch time exists, though only when the release date gets close.
    Still working out the kinks in the pipeline.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Vine full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    * Positive environment
    * Friendly/supportive owners
    * if you like a variety of wine & beer there is plenty of opportunities to learn and experience tastes from different producers

    Cons

    * not many but because it is a family business you can be micro-managed.

    Advice to Management

    Allow staff the opportunity to put forward and implement their own business ideas - if it is shown to benefit the overall performance of the company.
