Stable company that values its employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Durham, NC

I have been working at American Journal Experts full-time

Pros- Remote work environment but you can go in to the office if you want.
- Everyone is so nice and helpful!
- A job where you truly feel like you're making a measurable difference.
- Management is transparent and really puts themselves out there, allowing for people to hold them accountable for decisions.
- Free food, fridge full of beer and sodas =)
- Wear a t-shirt and jeans. No one is going to judge you. If you dress nice, several people will compliment you.
- Everyone around you is really really smart.

Cons- If you are not a self starter, you'll probably not get anything done. True of any remote work environment I suppose.
- Office wireless is horrible, but they are apparently fixing this one soon.
- Benefits are not as good as if you worked for a corporation.
- No 401K matching yet.
- For a company that has so many young people working for them, there is no gym membership benefit. Pretty much every other Durham company does this. Keep the employees healthy!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, communicate decisions down the ladder earlier, pay someone to clean the fridge so we don't have two week old Indian food in there.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
