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

    Pros

    Certify is a great place with a really positive environment filled with people who want to be there and want to see you do well, from all departments. I hate the term culture as it is overkill in today's age, but this place really is an incubation of good people with great attitudes. There is not a day that I am not grateful to have my position with the friends I get to call my team. By no means is it a "kool-aid" environment...

    Cons

    It is a growing company and with fast pace growth often comes arriving to milestones before we are quite ready. You have to be adaptable and you have to be open minded. Things don't always roll out in the smoothest fashion or in an expected time, but when they do it always goes to show why this company is one of the top providers in the space.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open to the everyday employee. CEO open door policy regardless of how big we've grown really does go along way. Leadership - continue to be involved directly with employees outside of a management perspective. Continue to get to know all of us because it really makes our work feel valued.

    I worked at Certify full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've been with several companies and this was far and away my best experience. CEO, CFO CSO, CRO, SVP and VP of Sales are the type of individuals who take the time to get to know their employees. This attitude trickles down to lower level management creating a great work environment. Employees are encouraged to be themselves in the office and professionals over the phone. The product is backed with great support,...

    Cons

    Office building is outdated. Although the organization does its best to make building management aware of its structural troubles that are affecting everyday business, sadly only so much can be done. Real repairs need to happen but building management continues to cut corners. No concrete policy on whether hats are allowed in the office. The bald are confused and demand answers

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Promote from within!

    I worked at Certify full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and good geographical locations in the city.

    Cons

    Lies, lack of consistency in ALL practices and procedures, mean-spirited people in leadership. CEO talks a lot of "the people of this company are the most important thing to me." Umm... you sold it and you allow your horrible team to mistreat people. When they eventually disengage socially, they are terminated or mistreated until they quit. #facts.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Chrome River, cutting the fat at Certify starts at the top down to middle management.

    Pros

    Its like Silicon Valley, but in downtown San Diego. The management is very inclusive and there is a great culture here. The company really goes out of its way to make employees happy. Corporate events are fun, not boring and forced. Benefits are great too.

    Cons

    Company has some growing pains its sorting out. Communication can be difficult sometimes as the main office is on the east coast.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Keep it up!

    Pros

    good company culture. good coworkers. company pays for parking, snacks and beer in office. CEO is very personable.

    Cons

    Very few individuals get opportunities for advancement, if you are in the group of folks upper management likes, you are good to go, otherwise this is a job to get by on. Seems like the same people keep getting new titles. Since acquisition culture is not as important. Despite the fact they have multiple people who work remote, for those who are close to an office working remote is not an option. New hires get paid more...

    Advice to Management

    many of the jobs are able to work remote, let people do that. Work life balance is something that you preach as a priority, put your money where your mouth is and let some folks work from home. Pay people fairly, if market value for a job had gone up, increase current employees to what you are paying new hires and annual pay raise time. It is demoralizing when an long time employee hears that they are making less than...
