    Fast growing company
    Very interesting industry, lots of potential
    Good team environment
    Very customer-service focused

    Need to coach out folks without the passion to win
    Unstructured environment not best for everyone

    Keep hiring great people with passion, and make sure new people have same level integrity and commitment as you expand.

    I worked at bidadoo full-time

    Pros

    flexibility, creativity, growth. There's something new every day in both challenges and opportunities. Great crew and fun management. Never a letdown-there's always another auction day staring you in the face next week.

    Cons

    Lack of structure if you need that kind of thing to work. Plans can and will change; it's important to remain flexible. If you're expecting fish and you get steak, that's OK.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing, keep rewarding the good people and pull the trigger a little quicker on the bad ones. Great business concept and a solid foundation.

    I have been working at bidadoo full-time

    Pros

    Chill work environment, everyone is pretty cool. Newer building, all you can drink pop and coffee is cool. Super cute girl working in logistic.

    Cons

    The pay sucks. Commission is a joke. Maintenance on the building is needed, should invest more into safety for warehouse working, OHSA would have a field day if they came for an inspection.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employee more, make commission more fair or give them a higher salary. It'll keep employee retention

    Pros

    Medical is pretty good. People are decent. They have special events.

    Cons

    Zero senior management or promotion. Sort of runs itself and is rather chaotic. High turnover. The building is pretty dirty with no heat/airconditioning etc. Pay is really low. Owners are very removed and don't deal with any employee situations. As long as you are a "yes man" and never have your own opinion, they will be glad to keep you.

    Advice to Management

    Get a manager and allow them to actually run the place. Seriously listen to your employees and dont just ignore everything. People are unhappy there. Pay the right people and not just your favorites.

    Pros

    Interesting Industry, Entrepreneurial environment, growing and expanding fast, great team, growing fast, fun place

    Cons

    Need a new Seattle facility, eBay platform has its pros and cons for the heavy equipment marketplace, experiencing normal growth challenges for fast growing company in a dynamic industry.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify the business away from just relying on eBay. Don't grow too fast, Keep hiring great people to maintain the environment
