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

    Pros

    Culture & atmosphere, you are surrounded by very smart people, that know how to keep having fun while solving really interesting problems. Management cares and tries to help employees grow in their careers. Add to that the mission, hours, lunches, hanging out after-hours & location - and you feel very lucky to be part of it,

    Cons

    There is nothing worth mentioning

    I worked at Top Hat

    Pros

    Catered lunch, open work space, happy hour on Friday

    Cons

    Glorified call centre with cliquey, judgemental culture. Could be cool if you’re looking to extend your college frat life experiences. Small percentage of reps actually fully attain quota and there’s turnover every 6 months.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great! The culture is very start-up like and laid back. The lunches and snacks are amazing.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what's happening at the lower levels of the business. Managers are not trained or qualified to lead teams. They still behave like individual contributors. Long hours, and really bad pay. You are treated like you're disposable, and your work is replaceable

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free lunch. Great community and some really like minded people. Work can be rewarding, because very challenging quotas. Really good training, especially with the product getting more difficult to sell.

    Cons

    Work can get repetitive. When you have been there for a decent amount of time you see the entire office leave. Also limited jobs available for promotions
