    I worked at Wowza Media Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Snacks, lunches, and happy hours. Co-workers are smart hard working professionals and loved going to work every day. They try to empower their employees who to be change agents.

    Cons

    They are operating out of a type of "flat" organization. This is relatively new for the company so there were some growing pains. Most people seem to embrace the change though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Too many to list, but the positive attitudes and next level professionalism is bar none. Working remote and treated like an asset instead of a number is, as another stated: Refreshing. A company that will make sure you have the tools to succeed. Open to new ideas, and more professional than any experience I have had so far.

    Cons

    It will make it hard to work anywhere else. It will make you look back with dismay at time wasted in toxic environments that destroyed your confidence and drive ...

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and interacting, it is making all the difference.

    Pros

    i've never worked for a company that truly values the input and feedback from its team members at all levels. Working here gives you the freedom and flexibility to do great work and focus on quality outputs.

    Its a globally diverse company and with that the management team does a great job of providing tools to ensure those who are not in the corporate office feel included and part of the action whether thats an all hands meeting or a team building trivia night.

    Aside from all of that, the technology itself is just cool. Hearing the use cases from customers and how they leverage the video streaming products really makes each day unique.

    All in all if you have the opportunity to work here I would highly advise you take it. The people, culture and focus on the customer experience make this a refreshing change from other companies.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains with fast growth, this will pass as processes continue to evolve to remain scalable.

    Pros

    Wowza is a very generous, energetic and fun company to work for. The majority of the people here are awesome and supportive, there are many very generous and numerous perks and benefits and amazing views from the Golden office. Dave Stubenvoll is a ridiculously smart and caring leader, a savvy business man and is greatly respected by his staff.

    Cons

    Some growing and communication pains as the company becomes larger and more successful and and there are a few difficult people to deal with (but those are inevitable within any company)

    I have been working at Wowza Media Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredible leadership - people who care about the people at Wowza. Core values centered around success through employee satisfaction and success. Autonomy and initiative are rewarded. Smart, friendly, collaborative people. Generous time off and healthcare benefits. Great office space with outrageously-stocked kitchen & bars (yes, more than one).

    Cons

    Small startup growing pains - if you are not ready to roll up your sleeves and wear many hats, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    The company culture is focused on customer success, and very employee-centric and supportive. The employees are capable and motivated, friendly, and act as a team. The leadership is experienced and smart, and understand that long-term success requires simultaneously supporting our clients, our employees, and delivering outstanding products to the market and have created a company which delivers all of this.

    Cons

    The media streaming industry is fast-paced and dynamic, and the work here reflects that. This, however, is not a bad thing for anyone who wants to work hard and have fun.
