There are some amazing people you will meet at Care.com. There are company meetings often and the management keeps you in the know.
Because priorities and teams get juggled, your job will change... a lot. The management expects you to do ten jobs. When a new hire comes on, you are supposed to train them and do your ten jobs and the middle associates lives are hell. It's not fast-paced, it's warp speed. They keep hiring VPs, stretching the middle, and "cutting costs" by removing hard working employees. There is NO career path that makes sense. Promotions don't seemed earned. If you are young, single/married with no kids, expect to work your tail off. You will be there 7-9 and not get compensated for it. Their salaries are comical and many good candidates (who we desperately need) laugh at the salary. Culture isn't everything - and the culture is beginning to stink. If you don't drink the kool-aid and see what's going on, you'll want to leave. Care.com isn't there for its customers and it's not there for its employees.
Advice to Management
Stop stretching those in the middle! And spoiler alert - you have hired a**holes. You let good people go, keep the jerks, and the rest of us panic. Find someone who can run senior care rather than have us watch another person take it over and it continue to fail or discontinue it. How many people have led senior care and left? We're not as dumb as you think.
