    Pros

    There is opportunity for a starting engineer to wear many hats within a startup company but until the uncertainty of the company is resolved it’s a rocky place to work. Since it’s such a small company any employee can make an impact in one shape or another.

    Cons

    Company has had many layoffs for such a small company. Senior management to employee ratio is much too high resulting in power struggles within departments and competing goals that results in micromanagement from the executive level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horse and put on your working boots to look at really what is going on in the front lines. Stop setting the bar too high for the company and make smart decisions that make good business sense.

    Pros

    The compensation package was thorough and competitive. When they did have to lay off employees, I think they were generous with their severance packages. There were opportunities to wear many hats and try a lot of different roles, as long as your work didn't suffer for it. There were some truly kind, knowledgeable and hardworking people there who were willing to help you learn different disciplines within the company.

    Cons

    It was a total pressure cooker, and a lot of favoritism, which inevitably led infighting between the different departments. They were thick with middle management, and it led to some managers losing touch with what their employees actually accomplished on a daily basis. The gap between management and mid- to lower-level employees was rather large, and the way management was compensated comparatively was off-putting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees based on their actual performance, and not on management cronyism. narrow the gap between the different work levels and encourage your different departments and teams to truly work together instead of against one another. Invest in the social areas of your workforce, and bring back things like the summer barbecues--they were good for morale of the company.
