Work-Life Balance

For a small company, hours are pretty reasonable

Suggestions for improvement

  • Honestly, there isn't much that comes to mind here. The things that don't work well (for example management communication) we actively work on. Sometimes fixes work, sometimes they don't but there always seems to be a desire to listen to input and improve.

What I like about the company

Lots to list. The people, the informal but decisive culture, my day-to-day work, the company mission, free lunches on Friday, etc.

What I dislike about the company

We're definitely packed in here closely together. Doesn't both me, but it could bother some folks.

Company Culture

It's a high school atmosphere. It's more of a hang out rather than a place of business.

Support from management

Leadership doesn't care about your well being and all they care about is "when the next deal is coming in or what is our conversion %"

Teamwork

Colleagues take your perspective personal if you don't agree with their point of view which in most cases is completely wrong

Freedom to work independently

Leadership has to control everything and unfortunately their guidance is completely off.

Internal Communication

Departments act separately.

Career Development

No chance of moving up in the company because the product is not a market fit and will never be successful.

Office / Work Environment

No space. We were on top of each other. Not enough conference rooms/space to take calls. They expected us to take calls on the floor as they blast loud music and play catch w the football or while dogs are running around the office barking trying to eat food in my barrel.

Company Image

They preach their "value" but no one lived those values.

Job Security

They always threatened that you were at "at will" employee. They gave promotions to the people that adopted the "fake it till you make it" approach and not the real hard working employees.

Challenging Work

The product doesn't work the way the market needs it to work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Completely change leadership at all levels. They have hurt the company based on their lack of experience and their ability to make rational decisions.

What I like about the company

Unfortunately, there's no positives at this company.

What I dislike about the company

EVERYTHING, but the worst part is leadership and their lack of EMPATHY.

Company response

Thank you for your opinion! We appreciate the time it took for you to write these sentiments down and we’re sorry that you hold negative feelings about your time here. In terms of your thoughts on our office environment - we agree that our small office space could use more meeting spaces, but since adding square footage is impossible we make the best out of what we have and actively communicate with each other as a team about space needs. Looking at the other critical points of your feedback and it appears that your perspective is themed around disagreements with / about leadership, dislike or distrust of your peers, and an overall opposition to “everything” at the company. We hear you and are very sorry to hear about these less-than-positive feelings. Since we have not found similar feelings shared among any of your peers - past or present - we are, however, at a loss on how we can remedy those isolated concerns that you have. Regardless, this review has been shared and reviewed by our management team and they thank you for your candor. We, as a team, review this feedback and internal feedback on a weekly basis and will always try to use it to become a better company. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors and hope that you’ll be able to cultivate more positive experiences in your future role(s)!

Teamwork

Every team works well together, and there's also many opportunities for cross-functional collaboration too

Work-Life Balance

Managers are extremely reasonable about letting employees working remote or from home, although many team members choose to be at work a lot because they enjoy it

Suggestions for improvement

  • Nothing that hasn't been opening addressed and actively worked on already!

What I like about the company

The members of the leadership team are very open, friendly and genuinely care about each person in the company, so it's a nice feeling to be supported that way and led by people you can trust. There's also lots of laughter and camaraderie among the whole team on a daily basis, which makes for a great working atmosphere in the open office space.
