    I worked at Care.com full-time

    Pros

    Very good learning experience. You will get exposure to wide range of technologies and systems. Experience at Care will definitely adds a lot to your skill set if you are a Developer or a QA engineer.
    Fun work culture and people are very nice

    Cons

    Extreme startup culture which means tons of work and very rigid dead lines. Also little underpaid as compared to similar positions on the market. Open office which means no cubicles which can be a big problem for those used to cubicles and calm work place environment.

    Young? Single? Prepared to be overworked and unpaid. Care.com does not care about you.

    Pros

    There are some amazing people you will meet at Care.com. There are company meetings often and the management keeps you in the know.

    Cons

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
