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

    Pros

    * Hearty welcome and onboarding * Best in class tools * Wide birth was given to try new things, iterate and innovate * Skilled, knowledgable, passionate and entrepreneurial leadership team * Great products, good vibe, cool perks

    Cons

    * A wide product line spread resources too thin. Could probably have focused more acutely on 1 or 2 * The communication channels failed on a couple of occasions. Can however be written off to the multi-culture makeup of the team

    "Unmeritocratic and anti-entrepreneurial"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at buzzmove full-time

    Pros

    International team Fast pace, with no two days the same “Culture cards” to ensure positive behaviours don’t go unrecognised

    Cons

    Leadership can’t execute basic ideas Endless self-congratulation about poo-in-the-potty non-achievements All the weaknesses of a corporate, just in bonsai form Untruths about remuneration Presenteeism counting for more than service to the company

    Pros

    There's a true team spirit, and lunch time laughs are an everyday occasion! A very supportive management team, recognition never goes amiss. Plus they're keen to develop staff so there's some really great opportunities for people who're willing to drive their career progression. Can't not mention Dexter, our office dog who makes the occasional visit 🐾 there's always extra smiles when he's around. Another little bonus is that there's lots of eco-warriors so we're environmentally friendly wherever possible in the office.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. You have to embrace ambiguity and be able to keep moving forward in the face of change :slightly_smiling_face:
