    I worked at Yodle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The intense yet comfortable training requirements, the down to earth laid-back atmosphere made work fun and exciting and made it comfortable for everyone to be who they are everyday.

    Cons

    In the beginning I was told no competition dance employees which two times can make working difficult because some people are a little more competitive than others . However it could not have been a more competitive company and I understand competition can be healthy, but it was thrived upon more than. We were less on to believe in the interview and orientation.

    Pros

    It's a very fun company a lot of young people were working. Yodle is always doing extra fun things to keep their employees happy. (food trucks, free lunch, gongs at work, etc.)

    Cons

    The base salary is very low and then you are expected to make commission. For some this is really easy and they make a ton of money for those who it is difficult it ends up being a salary that is hard to live off of.

    Advice to Management

    bump up the base salary so that people are entitled to stay longer instead of having such a quick turn over rate

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

    Pros

    The office has a fantastic culture, both engineering-wise and extracurricularly. One of the best things is the management's willingness and desire to listen to criticism and act on it.

    When I onboarded the experience wasn't great. This was after some organizational changes, so they were aware that there might have been an issue. Some of us were very quickly involved in an effort to revamp the process. In the short time I've been here, I've already seen the fruits of that work result in a better onboard for new employees.

    The engineering work force here is grouped in to teams, guilds, and special interest groups. Teams own code/products, guilds are responsible for certain concepts and are embedded in teams, and special interest groups exist for interested employees to expand their knowledge in technologies that benefit the company as a whole.

    On the non-work side there's clubs and other various things. There's a run club, wine club, etc. Also, there is a healthy gaming community (both board and video) featuring a monthly game night. All these activities receive support from the company.

    Management is definitely interested in creating an environment where people want to be and work here as opposed to forcing folks to work long hours. Get your work done and have fun doing it!

    Cons

    I mentioned I had a rough onboarding process. Everything has been resolved now but it was still not something I'd want to go through again.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
