Suggestions for improvement

  • more training for new managers more career pathing so there's opportunities for individual contributors to be promoted who don't want to be in management

What I like about the company

made many friends at work, have had the opportunity to travel and work/live in Denver, annual company meetings are great and have traveled to miami, disney world, long beach, new orleans and las vegas, halloween extravaganzas are always fun, CEO is very dedicated and engaged with all the employees and cares a ton about the company's mission

What I dislike about the company

managers are promoted with little experience and are given very minimal training, find that some hiring is biased and more so based on personal relationships than performance, some departments have little room for growth and it's difficult to be hired by other departments, there's not a regular workday anymore - employees are expected to be available 24/7 even during our vacation time, I do a lot of overtime which is sometimes by choice and sometimes I'm not given an option which I don't believe to be fair, because we can work remotely and most employees communicate over Gmail chat I'm constantly hounded by co-workers even when I'm out of the office, communication from management to individual contributors is sometimes nonexistent and very rare at best, and HR reps aren't necessarily helpful most interactions I've had with an HR business partner made me feel worse instead of better

Company Culture

The culture is incredibly supportive and it has a great work hard play hard mentality.

Support from management

Depending on your manager, you may have to literally HUNT THEM DOWN to have a discussion with them.. however it's not that they're running away. The company is still developing and it is an extremely high paced environment.

What I like about the company

The mission, the environment, and the employees.

What I dislike about the company

The ability to communicate with upper management was difficult.
