    6x "Bay Area's Best Places to Work" is justified. This is the most positive and supportive company I've worked at...and it starts with the Exec Staff.

    I worked at Ellie Mae (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free snacks
    Ok benefits
    Location

    Cons

    Being told a month after starting that they made a mistake on your stock and took away half of it. Offer you half of what’s being taken away as as signing bonus and acted like that was a great deal.

    Unqualified people in Management

    Still a start up mentality and can’t figure out how to be a grown up company.

    Red tape, groups are silo’d and do not communicate to well with other teams. Decision making is painful and drawn out and usually changed multiple times after the first decision.

    Likes to tout being voted Best Place to Work but if you don’t complete the survey you keep getting emails over and about completing the survey. Felt like I was being forced to complete it.

    Manager that retaliates when you go to HR about unfair practices. Allows Leads to terrorize their teams.

    Need I say more? I don’t think all teams were as bad as mine but to have just one team like this is enough to leave a bad taste in your mouth for the entire company.

    Happy the hell is over!

    Advice to Management

    Need to take a good hard look internally. If you look past all the fake happy fluff you’ll see it’s not the best place to work on many teams. You have Managers and VPs who shouldn’t be.

    I’d like to think if Sig knew half of what I went through that he’d be appalled.
