    Pros

    The office culture is truly refreshing compared to many other organizations (especially in Sales), but more importantly the overall direction of the company and new product focus (starting to address any areas where we may fall short) is a great change of pace from where the company was headed previously.

    Cons

    There are times where the office culture is touted almost too much. As an SAJ employee you have to be accountable to your projects/quota/whatever and for new folks this can be confusing as they might be blinded by the cultural advertisements and in for a rude accountability awakening if they fall short of their expected production. Not necessarily a bad thing, but culture needs to be seen as secondary to being successful and accountable in your role.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the direction and company involvement in that direction. The turnaround is still in full-swing, but looks like we are headed in a great direction.

  2. Amazing turnaround at Snagajob

    Pros

    Snagajob was just awarded Top 20 Best Places to Work for the 7th straight year, and it's clear why. "Snaggers" have a passion for the mission-- helping job seekers around the country find employment-- and enjoy coming to work every day. The culture is hard to beat. Work-life balance is a plus. I've referred several friends to the company. Snagajob recently opened an office near Washington, DC, so it's not just for Richmond folks anymore.

    Cons

    Training isn't super formalized, but they're working on making it much more structured.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The company has done a 180 in the past 2 years since the new CEO and leadership came on board.

  3. Passion, Excitement, and Growth - Snagajob might have found that rare balance

    Pros

    High energy and passionate organization. Great work life balance, gym in office (employees focused on wellness, workouts midday are common), emphasis on giving back to the community, lots of social events, office olympics (Chair Soccer Arena!). Majority of the team has more than 5 years of tenure which for a tech company is impressive. The leadership team (most new in past 2 years) has done a great job of renewing the excitement of the growth ahead for the company. The socially conscious nature of the business is embraced by the team which creates a cool vibe combined with focus on growing. Paternity leave, good vacation policy, perks like season tickets to major sports teams, yoga classes, classes on cool topics like wine tasting, how to grill, self defense, etc. Employees are called Snaggers and the culture makes it very evident why it has been voted one of the best places to work in America, 7 years running.

    Cons

    The company is growing and with that is experience growing pains, that aren't insurmountable. Hiring needs to be accelerated to keep up with demand. Company needs more outside perspectives to complement the currently talented team. The accelerated hiring has added more people which makes maintaing the culture a bit more of a challenge, but a priority. The company has gone through a lot of change from 2011 to 2013 as evident by new leadership, some scars from that period remain, but are mostly gone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote the positives, as it is contagioius.

    Pros

    The people are really smart and driven
    The culture is fun and collaborative
    The office space is incredible
    After some recent changes, there's a really strong executive team in place that have a good vision for where Snagajob needs to go
    Even after being around for 13+ years, there's still a start-up vibe
    Get to be a part of making a serious impact in people's lives (connecting hourly workers with employers)

    Cons

    There's been a lack of focus in the past, but new leadership has seemed to improve that

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on what's best for the job seekers and employers

    -very collaborative work envirornment; people want to work together for the greater good of the company; live out our values
    -transparent and approachable senior leaders; want feedback and respond to it
    -service oriented-for our customers, members and community
    -ability to create and make something your own; get in on the ground floor
    -willingness to try new ways and not always do something b/c that's the way it's always been
    -passionate group of Snaggers

    Cons

    -sometimes move a bit too fast on things; on the flip side when a mistake is made, it's owned and corrected (part of a high growth company though)
