    I worked at SilverRail Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The "worker bees" are great people who are doing their best. Benefits are decent. Product has potential if leadership would get out of their own way.

    Cons

    The CEO is fully disengaged and throws tantrums. He's told a whole office to "go get jobs at Starbucks" and often responds to simple requests with "do you think I even care?" Needless to say, the culture is going downhill, and fast. The rest of the leadership team is disjointed and communication is poor, among themselves and to the rest of the company. It feels like they're just biding their time until they find a way to get a big payout from Expedia. HR has become talking heads and all about policy and procedure, no focus on employees, not even meeting with them.

    Advice to Management

    Get your strategy in order and then stick to it. You're losing talented people. You are probably going to brush this review off, but there are real problems and you can't keep ignoring them.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, fun at work, nice technology, good people to work

    Cons

    There are no benefits for Australian employees, Not even paid parental leave or any basic insurance which is a basic consideration for any employee.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the benefits and will help to sort our the high attrition right now

    Pros

    I have been working at SilverRail Technologies full-time for two years now.

    1. A great team and people to work with – The company is still small enough to feel like a family, and the company is great at bringing together everyone in the office giving you exposure across the whole business, whether it be HR, Marketing, Finance, Product, or the co-founders. With monthly team lunches, weekly get together and monthly tea and cake sessions where we just hang out and chat, it’s great to feel so involved in the company.

    2. Solving real world problems – We are working in an extremely complicated industry, trying to solve problems that have never been solved before. Problems that impact millions of people on a day-to-day basis, and so the potential to make a real difference in the world is quite significant.  To me, that is hugely rewarding, and an exciting mission to be working towards.

    3. They respect your office hours and personal time, and appreciate that everyone has a life beyond office as well.

    4. Free snacks and drinks – and not the typical junk food you might expect, endless fresh fruit, nuts and other healthy snacks.

    Cons

    1. The company is going through the 'growing pains' of no longer being a small company but trying not to load up with too much process and red tape.

    2. With multiple locations and time zones (Brisbane, Boston, Europe), keeping offices aligned with consistent communications could be better. However, the management team do recognise this and are working together to try and overcome it.

    Advice to Management

    - None

    Incredible amounts of change, comp benefits are zero at the moment, could focus on values more & carry them through other areas of the org.

    Continue to listen to your people

    I have been working at SilverRail Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance!
    Has some talented individuals (non managers) to work with
    Decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Extremely poor management from top to bottom
    Greedy & selfish execs. Too many directors & managers, very few to do the work!
    No recognition, appreciation and growth path for employees
    Positive reviews here were a result of some group effort by HR. Not necessarily a true representation of the company
    Employee morale is at the lowest level. People are leaving! HR herself left!

    Advice to Management

    No point in giving advice to management because it will never be heard!

    19 Oct 2017 – CEO

    Wow. I’m really sorry that you feel this way, and that things have not worked out as you might have hoped or expected. It’s hard for me to hear such angry feedback, but that doesn’t invalidate how... More
