    I worked at ShareThis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting product; flexible work schedule and work/life balance.

    Perks & Benefits: $20 Seamless for lunch twice a week for lunch, $100 reimbursement/month for phone & gym, pretty good CIGNA plan.

    Cons

    Underpaid relative to industry standards and no 401K match.
    Glass ceiling for job mobility.
    Promotions and title changes include very tiny raises and few new responsibilities.
    Zero culture: NYC can fit 30 people but sits 13 people so if a few people were gone it was a ghost town. Was nearly impossible to get people to do anything outside (or even inside) the office.

    Advice to Management

    Let us know when important people are let go instead of letting it be a game of broken telephone.

    I have been working at ShareThis full-time

    Pros

    - great team, the people here are fantastic to work with
    - work/life balance, a lot of flexibility when life doesn't go your way (which happens to everyone from time to time, i.e. doctors appt, etc)
    - competitive compensation, speaks for itself

    Overall: There definitely was a time when I felt a bit lost in what exactly the company was trying to do in the past few years but recent changes and the addition of some new senior leadership has really convinced me of the company's new vision and goal.

    Cons

    - transition from adtech to a data-as-a-service was rocky
    - culture is more mature than a typical startup

    Advice to Management

    None - they seem to know what they're doing

    Pros

    Really great people to work with and actively trying to solve changing business problems in the publisher, media and marketer landscape. Plenty of adult leadership but with a nimble eye on where the market is heading and how to position our company in the thickest part. There's a lot of focus on creating a solid culture that strives to develop collaborative, team work.

    Cons

    While venture-backed, we're not a startup per se. Sustained profitability is more of what we are after; so, for people looking for a series A or B type of experience, we could be too mature.

    I worked at ShareThis full-time

    Pros

    The people are fun and easy to work with
    Pay and benefits are competitive

    Cons

    The company shifted too much focus on sales and revenue generation and let its product culture slide. Now the product offering feels stale
