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

    Pros

    Great benefits - free HMO, on site fitness classes and paid yoga classes. Free in office snacks and drinks, breakfast catered each Friday.

    Cons

    This place is run like a frat house - you're either in, or out. Extremely unprofessional management who run the company like a private and inappropriate club.

    Pros

    --Growing market segment
    --Strong sales culture
    --Technology-focused startup in what can otherwise be a backwards-looking vertical market
    --Smart, talented co-workers, overall

    Cons

    --Disorganized management structure
    --Limited resources for developing the business
    --Focussed so significantly on sales volume that fulfillment took a necessary backseat

    Advice to Management

    --Tighten the loop between the sample development and sales to facilitate panel growth
    --Improve programs for traffic/sample partners so that compensation at least matches the industry standard
    --Compete on the basis of quality, rather than price

    "Growing PAINS. A company with an identity crisis. Thinks it's a startup, runs like a old school corporation."

    I worked at uSamp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young, smart worker bees. In general, uSamp hires good people.

    Cons

    Business decisions seem mainly ego driven. Zero loyalty to employees. People are "disappeared,"--- there one day, gone the next. Founders run the place like their former fraternity-if you're in the inner circle the perks are great. Otherwise, there is superficial lip service to being a fun culture, but micromanaging is the exception rather than the rule. If you're not a drinker, you're probably not a fit for the culture since that's all that goes on outside of the office. No ongoing Philanthropic projects for employees. No one gets too close...why bother when your team mate might be gone tomorrow with no explanation. Board hasn't been happy with leadership for a while, made changes with more to come is rumor. Overall, not a place to stay...get in and get out.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency can't just be a buzzword. People aren't disposable. Focus. Figure out who you want to be. Be better people. No one wants to work for jerks.
