    Pros

    Good atmosphere and organized parties

    Cons

    1 quarter you can be the company hero because you were the best sales rep, and 6 months later fired because you missed 2 quarter's goals in a row (because they divided your territory since you did so well developing it...)

    Advice to Management

    Help your sales instead of firing competent ones

    Pros

    This is a company which is growing fast, which means there is plenty of opportunity for development. The team here are amazing and the culture is unbeatable. It's not a corporate environment - there's no dress code, there's a lot of fun going on in the office (huge games room with pool, table football, ping pong, ps4 etc, people riding around on skateboards, lots of different work spaces so you're not stuck at your desk all day) and everyone in the office is genuinely nice, driven and eager to succeed as a team.

    There's plenty of social events and loads of different ways that budget is allocated towards making it a fun place to be ("team happiness" budget for example). There are ambitious plans in place for the future of the company and clear direction on the intended path to achieve those ambitions. Management are great, and the company as a whole genuinely cares about the employees.

    By far the bet place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    the only thing I can think of is that there isn't flexible working - not an issue for me personally, but I know it's important for some people

    Pros

    Free food and drinks

    Cons

    So many fake reviews, it's incredible. It's a toxic environment with lack of skilled leaders and continuous bullying.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good leaders and get rid of the management.

    Pros

    Great people, good career progression, customers love the technology. There is tons of free stuff which I am still blown away by. Everyone is very open, even at a senior level and will provide feedback for development.

    Cons

    This isn't a 9-5 as you have to help build a business. Promotions are competitive but normally the right people get the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
