    I worked at Red Ventures full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Breakfast and snacks Regular-ish socials Volunteering day - unless they've since cut this of course

    Cons

    - top down decisions made under the illusion of autonomy - you are just a name not a person and expendable no matter your experience - perks under previous management such as work from home have been revoked as it apparently builds a bad 'culture' - complete overuse of the 'build a great culture' angle in order to get staff to do whatever management think is required to build a 'great company' - ridiculous switch in direction constantly, depending on whatever is 'important' to management this week - losing all the staff who actually new anything about the business and assuming that knowledge can be replaced easily - or with contractors - they genuinely do not care about you, your experience or opinions - at all. If you want to be a lapdog, go for it. Still doesn't mean they won't throw you under the bus. - don't expect a work/life balance

    I have been working at Red Ventures full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I moved across the country to work for a company I'd never heard of because it seemed like a pretty cool place to work. It absolutely exceeded my expectations in almost every way. The people are smart, passionate, friendly, and the company has many opportunities to grow as an engineer. Not only that, but I believe that the CEO (Ric) and Co-Founder (Dan) both really care about their employees and want the best for them. This is something I've never said before and usually feel the exact opposite about high level leadership in other companies. The few times I've seen them have to make the hard decisions that large and growing companies have to sometimes make, they have done the best they could to make the impact on the affected employees minimal. They also make a strong positive impact in the local Charlotte community and make it a great place to live. Great medical insurance, decent benefits otherwise.

    Cons

    While the company is the best company I've worked for so far, it doesn't come without its problems. Every company has problems. I think all of RV's problems can be fixed if they are addressed. * Pay is much lower than industry standard * The review process is badly flawed as it only rewards highly visible positions and small teams that don't interact with a lot of external sources are extremely undervalued. Peer reviews only work if you have a sufficient source of peers. It boils down to people getting reviewed by someone they interacted with for 20 minutes months ago. This last review cycle I had 3 of those assigned to me, and one who moved off my team about 8-10 months previously. I turned them all down. Then your manager's review has to match or at least come close to whatever random "peers" they found to review you, for some reason. On top of that, individual review sections also boil down to a score of 1-4 instead of 1-5 or 1-10 and you're not allowed to give someone all 4s. * Because of the above review processes, bad engineers can be promoted further than their capabilities and relying on a title to pull in talent from another team or vertical is mostly useless. It also obviously leads to lots of bad middle management. * While I love the top leadership and most of their direct subordinates, quality can degrade quickly from there depending on your vertical and team. It's probably a 50/50 shot to get a good manager, director, or VP+. * Unrealistic deadlines can lead to burnout. When you have a team of multiple engineers telling you something will probably take a year, don't act surprised when your 3 month deadline isn't even close to a finished product. People aren't going to work 16hr days to meet that. * The company is still refining its Software Development culture. Many Directors and above come from when the company was all landing/marketing pages or internal software. Complex interactive products that find their way to the public have a completely different process and set of standards.
