Pros

Work in a quick and engaging atmosphere on issues that matter. Clients are very happy and organization is continually trying to improve. Feedback is atleast heard if not instantly taken.

Cons

Atmosphere is fun but very challenging, long hours and lots of hard work. Teams are constantly influx, with lots of turnover and new hires. Mid-level management is not yet worked out.

    Pros

    Leadership is accessible, high growth leads to advancement opportunities, great market, strong commitment to customer satisfaction, solid product development, and a very laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Abnormally high employee turnover, while typically explainable, is still disconcerting. Also, while high growth often leads to advancement opportunities, larger companies afford more diversity of options. DC office can be degrading towards St. Paul office (classic "East Coast vs. Midwest" mindset).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve retention, reduce friction between DC and St. Paul teams, add resources in technical support to ensure prompt response times.

    Pros

    The company is very passionate about the work they do, and it shows. Free snacks and beverages, Friday breakfasts and relaxed space outside of your cube to work make it a great working environment.

    Cons

    There is a bit of micro-managing at the top levels which can slow progress on projects and cause frustration. If members of the executive team aren't immediately all-seeing and all-knowing, they discard a suggestion and focus on something more comfortable to them. Voices are raised when frustration occurs, so expect outbursts and try not to take it personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan your strategy and goals for the future, but don't be so self-limiting that you discard a good idea just because you're not a seasoned expert in an area and you can't make the project fit into your current timeline. Sometimes the wait and slower progress yield an even greater outcome, and you can gain experience and knowledge in a previously unknown area.
