    Pros

    Startup with great enthusiastic energetic engineers.
    Things get done fast.

    Cons

    The CEO is very difficult to work with. Most co-founders have left.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like you know more that you actually do.
    Drop the "this is the best idea since sliced bread that will change the world" attitude.

    I have been working at shopkick full-time

    Pros

    At shopkick I've easily been able to get involved in whatever areas/projects interest me. The engineering team is also top notch and I've learned a tremendous amount from the people I work with.

    Cons

    Bathroom is shared with the Chinese restaurant downstairs. Workspace is pretty cramped.

    Advice to Management

    I've felt the senior management has always been fairly reasonable and transparent, so I don't have any advice to give.

    I have been working at shopkick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They always say how great of a company they are.

    Cons

    But that is not enough...I think the idea is doom to fail since people want to buy everything online any way since it is much cheaper. You can not fool the people.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be hard headed freaks.
