    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Latitude Geographics full-time

    Pros

    Great perks: free snacks and coffee, an opportunity to speak in front of employees, nice location/offices

    Cons

    After latitude got outside investment they lost their heart and soul. They don’t value their employees, they don’t have the same ethical values as they say they do online, upper management has a definate lack of experience and care more for money than their employees, and the salary is not very competitive. I would recommend against working at Latitude.

    Pros

    Latitude is a great company to work for, filled with great people who genuinely care about the work that they do. The social atmosphere is also great here, as you will almost always find a group of people hanging out on the rooftop patio on a Friday evening.

    Cons

    Being a small-medium sized company, there isn't a lot of room for career advancement. Some opportunities are definitely available though, but it's generally not presented as a clear path. Also, as noted by others, the pay ranges are generally on the low side.
