Reviews

Company Culture

People were generally really cool and glad to be there, but also extremely dragged down by being overworked. A lot of worn out folks, stressed out trying to do an impossible amount of tasks.

Support from management

This changed overtime and with management changes. There was some pretty good support there, but at times it could be lacking.

Freedom to work independently

I worked almost completely remotely, which I loved.

Internal Communication

They were great about spotlighting achievements.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There weren't a lot of over-45ers there, but any that were seemed to be able to fit in with everyone else. It is a very young culture, though.

Work-Life Balance

The task list could be so huge that you'd never really be able to take time off if you wanted to get stuff done. With that said, though, they never frowned on taking time off.

Company Image

Not totally applicable, since I don't work for that company anymore. But I'm proud to say that I did work for them.

Job Security

I'm not longer with the company. I was laid off! It never felt very stable there, though. The layoff wasn't a surprise.

Challenging Work

It wasn't so much the tasks that were challenging—though they could be. It the fact that the company was constantly trying to switch things up to try something new, so you never could really finish a task without being asked to do something totally diff

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think I covered that in the last comment. Management needs to come up with a plan and stick with it, stop changing direction constantly. And be careful not to weigh your employees down with an impossible amount of tasks.

What I like about the company

For the most part, the people I worked with were so cool—overworked, yes, but so friendly, caring and supportive. Management went out of their way to recognize hard work among the employees, which I always thought was a nice touch. The job was exciting

What I dislike about the company

There was a general lack of support. I felt like I was out on my own most of the time. Management seemed to constantly change direction, which meant we'd be heaped with a whole other pile of tasks. It's like they didn't realize or appreciate the immensity
