    I worked at Duedil full-time

    Pros

    1) Smart people (apart from the few bad apples and management) 2) Interesting and challenging problems

    Cons

    1) People promoted to high positions that have no experience or background (especially the CPO and CTO) because of politics 2) Lots of lofty goals without delivering (esp. from former CEO) 3) No product strategy or process 4) No clear career progression paths 5) Salaries below market rates

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO: try to listen to employees, and get more qualified people to run the business.

      I have been working at Duedil full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Fantastic culture in the office - very friendly, unpretentious and warm environment. Great benefits and support from the management. Great place for personal and professional development; tonnes of opportunities to explore different areas of the business and get involved in exciting projects. Your work feels valued and rewarded.

      Cons

      Due to the nature of a startup there are areas lacking structure and protocols; however, this will come with time as the business grows. Working hours are quite long.

      Advice to Management

      Perhaps reconsider the working hours, or at least for the summer period.
