    I have been working at Smokeball part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture here is like no other that I have worked at, people are really down to earth, friendly and super smart.

    There's lots of autonomy here, which I think enhances creativity and makes work a lot more satisfying.

    Our CEO is very open about the direction in which the company is heading and it's easy to keep on track with our results.

    The flexible working hours is a huge plus for me, I am a working parent, so having hours that suits my family's needs makes work-life balance possible. We also start our Friday night drinks at 4pm so I can still enjoy some social time before I leave at 5pm.

    There's lots of other cool perks like gym membership, breakfast, regular off-site meetings and an employee share scheme.

    Cons

    We are growing quickly, and like many other start-ups, we are still developing processes. This suits me, though may not suit people that like having existing processes in place.
    I can see improvements made daily though, and management are working on this.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow I hope that we can maintain this awesome culture and office vibe.
