I have been working at FindTheBest.com full-time (more than an year)Pros
- Starting on day one, you're given an incredible amount of responsibility. It's intimidating at first, but once you realize that you have the power to affect positive change on the company, it's incredible empowering and gives you the drive you need to succeed in your position. I was someone who joined FindTheBest immediately after graduating, and found myself being given responsibilities that most other companies would only trust in the hands of a seasoned professional (something I definitely was not) What I found was that I was given the resources I need to "test, fail, learn, test, succeed, scale," a mantra that is used time and time again at FindTheBest.
- Location. I was skeptical of a tech company that was removed from a "tech hub," but I quickly found that a) that's actually not the case, and b) that being removed from the bubble that is Silicon Valley is a blessing. We aren't distracted by the hype in the Valley, we're part of a smaller community of companies that are innovating and doing things differently to make an impact. (Also, just look at those views from our office ... those pictures don't lie)
- Equity. People always talk about the lower salaries (which I don't even think is the case anymore), but each employee is given equity in the company, which means we're all owners and committed to the success of FindTheBest. It's a pretty powerful thing to see.
- Kevin O'Connor. It's easy to take for granted the fact that our company has Kevin at the helm. He's an incredible leader and one that we're all able to learn from. I think a lot of people here will go on to create their own companies, and I think Kevin is a big reason behind that.Cons
- Location. Yes, I just gave the pros of our location, but I still miss not being in a city and being away from some of the networking opportunities that you find in a tech hub like Silicon Valley, or even LA, NY, Seattle or Boston.
- I sometimes wish we had a mix of more seasoned individuals at the company. I think we have something really special with our younger team, but every now and then, I find myself wishing there was someone here in my department who had been through something like this before and could offer their expertise and experience.Advice to ManagementAdvice
- Continue to be transparent with the company. This is something I really admire about FindTheBest, and as we grow, I think it's important to continue this practice of transparency, in both good times and bad.
- Start considering other incentive areas for employees. As a company made up largely of millennials, it would be great to see some incentives in the form of a 401(k) plan, company matching to IRAs, student loan payment matching, or other things like that that help people think critically about their future and their finances.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
