    I worked at Waterfall full-time

    Pros

    Best team of mobile marketing professionals in the industry. Great exec and employee team, it was a real family. Collaborative team esprit de corp, focused and hyper customer centric. As a business punched way above our weight. Team members pulled together in the office, and had great fun together outside it. Waterfall is no more and will be missed, it was a band of brothers and sisters.

    Cons

    No real cons, new owners are focused on continuity of products and services.

    I have been working at Waterfall full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart Start-up environment providing many opportunities to perform and learn new skills as well as owning new programs and defining new growth strategies. Founders focus on espirit de corp and establishing a strong team environment and culture. Performance pace is fast, and focus/results must be superior to competition with extreme focus on Customer/Client success. Require team first attitude and desire to constantly learn and adapt to Customer and Prospect needs.

    Cons

    Start-up environment stresses and limits of budget size and "extras" Must be able to move at speed, perform role, and be measured on accomplishments and results.

    I worked at Waterfall full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Waterfall is a fantastic company if you are looking for autonomy in your work and want to be surrounded by a fun group of folks. Almost everyone at the company is really kind, helpful, and willing to try new things. Overall, the people are the best part of working at Waterfall. Also, the schwag is amazing, Waterfall's corporate culture and branding is awesome.

    Cons

    Waterfall has two major issues that I noticed. The first was a lack of professional development programs or initiatives. Growing your career and skill set is not emphasized and because of that it can often feel like you're professionally treading water. The second major issue is Waterfall management often talks about it as a startup, even though it's been in business for almost 10 years. This may seem like semantics but issues about disorganization, allocation of funds, shifting responsibilities, are reasoned away with the "this is a startup things change fast."

    I have been working at Waterfall full-time

    Pros

    The staff is a mishmash of all types of people and personalities that get along wonderfully. Management cares as much about the individual as they do about how well your job is being done. There is trust and freedom to get your work done well and by the deadlines. I love not being micromanaged!

    Cons

    Currently in a transition point with the physical work space, but manageable.

    I have been working at Waterfall full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open book policy! Weekly All hands to discuss department and company objectives, goals, benchmarks, and other creative announcements! Great benefits, 401k, commuter benefits, company culture, and more.. The recent acquisitions were smart business moves as well. Fun to work with great experienced thinkers!

    Cons

    A little bit of adjustment from the recent acquisitions. But, the transition was well communicated and expectations were set on what to expect during the acquisition process. Few bumps, but everything is running great.
