    I have been working at Pica9 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Killer software, great benefits and a relaxed environment. Awesome customers that use our products in cool ways.

    Cons

    It would be cool if the company were more aggressive in their ability to invest in the business. We have the potential to do a bunch more if we had the investment to support the potential that we have.

    Pros

    If you want to learn everything not to do in business and as a moral human being, lessons are in abundance on the daily. The company also offers standard start-up benefits that you can and should find anywhere else- “unlimited” PTO, happy hours on Friday that no one sticks around for, and occasionally there are dogs in the office that cause chaos. No other benefits or pros to think of. Unless you enjoy being screwed over.

    Cons

    What has happened to this company?! The small, passionate, hard-working and successful (profitable) company of the past is very nearly disintegrated. The level of disrespect that I had to put up with for the past year and a half is astounding. The only employees who know what they are doing and perform at top level are mistreated by everyone else. Idiots who take advantage of all of the significant work that’s been accomplished since the company's founding. About a quarter of the employees are inspiring, intelligent and hard-working individuals who are chronically underpaid and undervalued. The most incompetent people have been put in all positions of leadership, and throughout the company, and it SHOWS. If this company goes back to its roots, it may find something salvageable yet, but there is no guarantee. All I can say is- if you are smart you’ll stay away. There is nothing to be gained from joining a failing company led by a lying, thieving parasite.

    Pros

    Finally landing some quality clients. Great product that just needs some more exposure. Much better management in place. Morale and social activities on the up. Great teammates.

    Cons

    Can still be small-minded in what they can achieve. Need some more big thinking and less of the old way of doing things.

    I have been working at Pica9

    Pros

    As with any small tech company, life is fast-paced and challenging. This is not my first small company rodeo, so I view "challenging" as a positive. Sometimes it can be somewhat overwhelming, but fighting through that with the support and assistance of colleagues and the management team is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Growth of product, services and sales are paramount, but with that comes more pressure and the inevitable lag in hiring - simply finding the RIGHT person for the job is a real challenge. This can lead to long hours under certain circumstances as we having to wear several hats - each of which have different demands on those hours.

    I have been working at Pica9 for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You know, it used to be a great place to work. Then, the wrong people got promoted above their management ability. Good people were abruptly fired for weak reasons. Terrible communication of job responsibilities, no measurement of success/failure other that "feelings". This place is a joke.

    Cons

    Stay away. Loyalty a means nothing to this company. People have been promoted to positions they are not equipped for.

    Pica9 Response

    May 4, 2016CEO

    We're sorry to hear you're dissatisfied and want you to know the door to management at Pica9 is always open. We are growing quickly. We expanded our team by 50% in the past year to help support triple digit growth rates. Growth brings opportunity and whenever possible, we seek to promote from within and build great career paths for our people. In fact, 4 of our 5 senior management team members started out at Pica9 as individual contributors. Many more team members have been promoted to greater levels of responsibility. We also invest in ongoing education. Half of our team has enrolled in company-funded courses in Scrum, project management, UI/UX training, coding courses, Sales methodology and Leadership development. We see these investments as great for our employees' careers—and great for the company, too. We take a very flexible and trusting stance on work-from-home and flex-time arrangements to help employees with work-life balance. Those are a few reasons why our staff turnover rate is under 10%— far lower than the tech-industry average of 31% -- and why the average tenure on our rapidly growing team right now is 3 years. We encourage our people to communicate with management so we can understand how to continuously improve and address problems swiftly. Thanks for bringing your concerns to our attention.
