User Interface Developer (Former Employee), Denver, CO – July 23, 2012
Pros: cool company
Cons: 60-70 hour weeks with no stock options
Cool company to work for, which quickly became the world's largest distributor of Electronic Music. Great co-workers. As my first development position, I learned a lot about great engineering and project management. Thrived on the small team / collaborative team environment. The problem: 60-70+ hour weeks with no stock options, even after getting a very large round of funding. Great experience, but horrible work / balance, a lot of employee burn out.
