    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at coolblueweb

    Pros

    The developers operate well as a team and make sure to support each other and share their knowledge through official meetings dedicated to learning, as well as informal collaborative sessions. The company is growing quickly and has a list of exciting clients. Company culture is laid back, but the work is fast-paced and always exciting. Personally, working here has been an excellent opportunity for me to develop my...

    Cons

    Internal projects can sometimes get overlooked, due to the high amount of client requests. But, processes are getting smoother every day!

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at coolblueweb full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There were some great people I worked with and I learned from them. Nice office location. Casual environment.

    Cons

    Processes were nonexistent. Customer service suffered and the team took the brunt of it. Not fun having customers threaten you.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your ability to create specifications. I know of at least four projects over the year that we’re disasters because they weren’t planned properly. And that comes from the top. It’s embarassing and destroys morale to have so many angry customers. Have you looked at Yelp lately?

    Pros

    This is a small company working to be the best in their industry while retaining a sense of community. Every employee is given ample opportunity to grow. Hard working staff who like to have a good time.

    Cons

    Normal growing pains but management is constantly working on solutions while asking for feedback from employees.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline certain processes, be careful of growing too fast but also continue to take risks.

    I have been working at coolblueweb

    Pros

    This company is growing and changing in the best ways. I've been here for 5 years and have seen the business evolve from a small promo-product/seo business to a full-on web dev machine! The community of developers here have each other's back and are focused on making the web a better place. Best of all, it is evident that those who work here love what they do and love doing what they do at coolblue.

    Cons

    Not very many cons. Some internal processes are still in development, but the level of employee influence allows the company to adapt to the ever-changing industry that is web development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on building a culture conducive to quality web development and the business will continue on rolling in.

    I have been working at coolblueweb full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    coolblueweb has a casual but focus culture. Co-workers build relationships that step outside of the office. They even have a pool table for a relaxing step away from a problem. They love and are experts for the ecommerce platform, Magento. Becoming a Magento Certified Developer is highly encouraged.

    Cons

    Since they are a small company the mentor-ship track is still developing. Employees are encouraged to learn through self-study rather than direct teaching. They are located in Pioneer Square, Seattle. This can be challenging during sporting events as traffic and parking is out of control.
