    I have been working at Apartment List full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is amazingly supportive and fun (an attitude that permeates down from the founders), and leaders are constantly recognizing people for good work. That's easy to do when everyone is at the top of their game - even at 60+ employees, each one of them can be trusted to deliver consistently, usually exceeding expectations. The business team is highly skilled and very open to engineering needs, and vise versa. As we expand, there are a ton of new projects and roles for everyone to grow into.

    Cons

    The usual balancing act between business, product and engineering, and the occasional surprise deadline. Nothing you won't find everywhere.

    Pros

    Extremely intelligent coworkers who are truly excited by what they doe. Inspiring mission and great atmosphere.

    Cons

    While the executives work hard to motivate and build a sense of family, there is a slightly schizophrenicattitude to business decisions, leading to wild swings in strategy that cause tidal waves of surprising and difficult change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly set expectations, then stick to them. If business needs change, be honest and straightforward with employees so they can change with them.

    Pros

    Great people pulled directly from top engineering programs, universities, and professional service firms
    Fun and inviting company culture that still delivers on key objectives (work hard / play hard)
    Company has a great product and is on a very good trajectory - well positioned to win the rentals space

    Cons

    Could be a pro or a con depending on your personality but you have to wear many hats - hey it is a startup! You have to be willing to work hard, ramp up quickly, and be flexible.

    Pros

    The people who work at Apartment List are hands down my all-time favorite colleagues. The team is brilliant, creative, open-minded, inclusive and hilarious. We have thrown some killer parties and the executive team is great at coordinating group activities, like karaoke, scavenger hunts, baseball games, dinners, etc. We also do an open-forum style company meeting every Friday, so we are all up to date on company happenings, regardless of which team we're on.

    Cons

    The leadership team has super high expectations, which can be stressful and unrealistic at times. It can be hard to find a work/life balance because everyone works so late.
