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

    Pros

    Webdam is a fun place to work. Scooters to get around the office, free snacks and drinks, and the company is always buying lunch for employees. It has a very silicon valley vibe. Bright, young, talented employees.

    Cons

    The San Mateo HQ is a bit of a schlep if you're commuting from the city.

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow there may be pressure to bureaucratize. Don't lose sight of what makes Webdam unique; its environment and culture!

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

    Pros

    Webdam is in a good place right now. Creative teams are making more content than ever before on tighter deadlines and the three products the company offers (Webdam for digital asset management, Brand Connect for managing and syncing up branding, Workstream for project management an proofing) are solid and easy to use.

    I'm coming from a mostly CPG background and the my team has gotten me up to speed with a very efficient and thorough onboarding process.

    The company culture is welcoming and everyone is eager to help each other. The teams are diverse and have a fairly well balanced male to female ratio you don't often see in tech companies.

    Cons

    The only real negative I have so far is the commute, which is simply a fact of life in the Bay Area. The office in San Mateo is fairly close to Caltrain, which is nice and the SF office is close to BART.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring for culture. Everyone's skills are where you'd expect them to be, but the camaraderie is much greater than I was expecting. This creates a good work environment.

    Pros

    You will meet and work with very friendly and funny people. Culture is nothing to complain. Very nice office and you will never get hungry while lots of beverages and snacks are free.

    Cons

    Very few restaurant options nearby so you probably have to drive 10 min to get to downtown.

    Pros

    Everyone has been really welcoming and supportive since I started here. The office has a laid back atmosphere though everyone works really hard. You can go over to just about anyone for help with questions and people spend time getting to know each other. People ride scooters, work on beanbag chairs, and they play employee submitted music playlists on the office speakers.

    The hiring process is straightforward and there aren't really any surprises, mine just took longer than normal (about 2 months) though it was due to my own limited availability, which they were very good at working with.

    Cons

    There aren't really any food options walking distance from the main office, though I tend to forget to step outside anyways.

    Pros

    Fast growing company that feels like a family, I made really great friends while I was here and had a great time. The people are genuine and smart, and there's lots of potential for career advancement if you show commitment and do well. Definitely a great place to be. The people also really know how to have fun at company events - one of the best perks, among many.

    Cons

    Processes were always changing, but as I was leaving (for personal reasons) I think they were starting to really get things down.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good employees and do what you're doing. Miss you guys :)

    Pros

    I am writing this review a week into being hired. The people are so nice! Everyone has been very welcoming and accommodating. My colleagues have been super helpful in getting me trained. The fully stocked kitchen is always a plus, they are not lying when they say you will never go hungry here. The compensation and benefits package is also very good. I would highly recommend becoming a member of the WebDAM team should you have the opportunity.

    Cons

    The on boarding training could be a little more organized.
