    Great flexible work option for stay-at-home moms

    I worked at Care.com part-time

    Pros

    They offer a flexible schedule, ongoing training and support. You definitely feel like part of a community even though you are working remotely, which is very rare.

    Cons

    Unfortunately for me the salary was too low. I know as a general rule it's hard to find good paying, work-from-home opportunities. But I probably would have stayed with them longer if I were making more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue making yourselves available to employees. That level of support is appreciated.

    Great Company, Great Services, but Lacking in Hiring Knowledge

    Pros

    Friendly staff, great leadership team, fantastic employee benefits, good hours, nice new office.

    Cons

    I think they were so quick to hire someone for their posted position, they didn't focus on what they really needed and instead just hired someone that they "thought" would fit. Instead, they needed something different, and I was let go after about 90 days. My skills in certain areas were a perfect fit, however in one big area they were not, and unfortunately that was enough for me to be let go. Also, they expect you in the office 45-50 hours a week, plus my position included working nights and weekends on top of that. It's a struggle to find a work-life balance when you work that much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was the third person hired for that position that didn't work out. I think they need to re-evaluate what they need before they hire again. This could go for all positions, it's important to hire smartly.
