Former Employee - Care Force Representative  in  Waltham, MA
Former Employee - Care Force Representative in Waltham, MA

I worked at Care.com part-time for more than a year

Pros

The flexible schedule, and team oriented environment almost make this job doable.

Cons

The low pay, more and more demands without significant pay hikes, and no benefits make this a short term stint only.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay these employees more-they are on the front line of reviewing members, offer more bonuses, paid time off.

    Pros

    The engineering team is always current on new technologies and integrating new ones. It's a highly competent team, but they think they're quite a bit better than they are.

    Cons

    You're there to work and work and that's it. Don't even think about trying to make suggestions about any ways to improve anything. You'll be told in no uncertain terms that you're there to code and that's it. It's also like a good old boy network, if you worked with them in a previous company, you're golden, if not, you're just a code monkey.
    You should also not expect to have a life, if you don't want to put in 50-60 hours minimum, you won't fit in.
    Pay is very low for work expected, which is why so much of the team is outsourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all the employees, not the favored inner circle. So many people have ideas and are ignored. Get some diversity of work backgrounds. It seems like half the company all worked together previously.
