they had some growing pains
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – Niwot, CO – September 12, 2014
The company grew too fast for its own good. In a year, the accounting department grew from 5 people to over 40 (I don't know about the rest of the company, but I'm assuming it grew proportionately). My co-workers were human, which means some were great, some less so. The bosses were all overworked because of the growth, and the company was going through IPO at the time to go public. Once they went public, the top three owners walked with the lions share, giving even upper management such bad deals that over half walked away within a month. Lower management, who was asked to put in 60-80 hour weeks for several months, go the same lame t-shirts as the rest of the peons. While there was potential for growth, it was hard to tell who could move up and what positions would be hired from the outside since management was going through upheaval.
