I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Wonderful, talented software development colleagues. Great engineering managers. Challenging software scale problems. Solid benefits with the possibility of bonuses. Lots of company growth potential that's being realized.

Cons

Benefits aren't great (high deductible); no matching 401k contribution. Software development division is going through a phase of high-energy, low-stability reorganization while the company goals of scaling-up are addressed. No opportunity for career advancement, but that's a known issue starting. Many talented, amazing employees have been lost due to conflicts with executives.

Advice to Management

Make a long-term technology plan and apply it in an organized, consistent manner.

    I have been working at A Place for Mom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to divide my time between working in the office and working from home (3 days in the office and 2 days from home). I felt respected my my managers, and I really liked my coworkers.

    Cons

    Because the company was going through so many changes it was hard to feel secure in your job. In the same sense, it felt as though there was little opportunity to advance because all open upper level positions were going to people outside the company instead of internally. Similarly, a lot of promotional titles seemed to be arbitrarily handed out to people.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to core values and build the company based on service and not on profit.
