    I worked at Geckoboard full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great work life balance - Lots of holiday! - Flexible with working from home and work hours - Really nice people to work with - Flexible with process - Great engineering culture - QAs on every team - Challenging product and problems - Excellent customer support team - Can talk to lots of users and there is a very vocal customer community - Transparency around company status (costs, profit, metrics etc)

    Cons

    - Difficult to see your work making any impact on growing the product - Very 'just in time' planning and team allocation - Product direction and roadmap not well communicated - Lack of experience in some senior roles and managers - Lack of autonomy in product and design - Different levels of comfort with collaboration Overall I do not think Geckoboard is a bad place to work - but you will have a better experience in certain disciplines than others. Your experience will also depend on what you want from your work and the impact you want to have - something to consider before interviewing.

    Pros

    One of the main reasons I joined Geckoboard was because of the people and culture. Everyone is so friendly and truly cares about each other and doing great work. It's a very open work environment where company metrics are shared and easily accessible, anyone can ask questions, and leadership genuinely appreciates when someone challenges the status quo or suggests a better way to do something. No egos, just hard working people who are eager to learn.

    Cons

    At this point, Geckoboard isn't incorporated in the USA - but hopefully one day it will be. :) (This doesn't negatively impact my work experience at all, though.)
