    I worked at Suzy full-time

    Pros

    Free snacks and drinks. Pretty good work life balance.

    Cons

    Layoffs happened regularly along with people leaving by choice due to the lack of overall vision, horrible upper management, and an almost nonexistent HR department. The people who did move up, moved up due to favoritism. Product itself had some huge gaps that caused its decline.

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

    Pros

    Crowdtap was founded on the principles that every start-up should be looking to achieve. For the most part, they've been able to hold on to those key attractors that brought some of the best and brightest on board. Management still promotes a work/life balance that may be somewhat uncommon in this stage of a startup. The office is beautiful and dog-friendly. The people you'll be working with will be friends and colleagues for life.

    Cons

    We only hire, and only train/motivate/incent our managers to hire -- don't optimize efficiency, don't do performance management, don't fire. We poured huge money into glorious new headquarters, signaling to employees "we've made it, we're amazing", then started to hemorrhage clients and personnel. We confuse conference circuit & party scene with actual work. We refuse to take HR seriously. Product leadership is completely MIA. We've lost a secure foothold in our industry due to indecision and lack of vision. Meetings occupy a large percentage of management's time.

    I worked at Suzy

    Pros

    Wonderful culture and work/life balance. Unlimited PTO, full benefits and you work with intelligent people that truly care about what they do.

    Cons

    Low compensation for the Client Success team. Somewhat micromanaged and there's no way to measure success. The product is a work in progress which raises questions from clients and can negatively affect renewals.

    I worked at Suzy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are genuinely good people who care about you more than just an employee. Decent work-life balance. Big name clients.

    Cons

    The company rapidly lost the culture as it scaled. My biggest grievance was the compensation was insultingly low and there's no career path, despite being sold in on "so much opportunity for growth and advancement."
